Zinzi is a well decorated restaurant in a beautiful setting with an excellent menu and wine list. We have never been disappointed eating lunch here as the choice of dishes is excellent as is the service. A wonderful informal spot which is not overly full even when the rest of Plett is bursting at the seams.

Zinzi's is between Knysna and Plettenburg Bay. The Restaurant is set in beautiful gardens. One can have a pre lunch/dinner drink in the garden and then be shown to your table. The staff are very efficient and friendly. Excellent food and wine. One of the best experiences we had in SA. and not over the top expensive. Whilst in Plettenburg... More

I visited here in March whilst staying in Knysna for an annual visit! First time visiting Zinzi, and I found it to be a great place! The service was good, food well prepared and presented, excellent wine selection and a fantastic location! I will be back in November and will be returning to Zinzi whilst on my stay!

Stunning place but it's a shame where food is so average. Moroccan soup was not at all good, green curry was bad salmon was good - service was really below par - overall not recommended for a place that has so many great options.
