Zucchini is blushing from all the attention... Voted in the "Top 20 Culinary Destinations" in the Garden Route for three years running as voted by the Chaines des Rotisseurs. Also voted best "Family Restaurant" in the Garden route for the last two years. If walls of this honest country restaurant could talk the conversation would include words of fresh,vibrant, from scratch, home grown organic and compliments to the chef. To us simplicity is the key. You can expect dishes filled with flavour, a taste experience for the natural foodie. Zucchini Restaurant is in the Timberlake Organic Village in Wilderness. We offer a selection of Vegetarian meals but also offer game dishes like the "Springbok Shank" or our "Trio of Carpaccio". A mix of local-made micro brews from the tap! 12 Different types of local beers to taste, not to be missed. Play park for the kids, and a host of activities to keep them busy while you relax on our couches and sip a glass of wine.

We stopped in for a quick lunch after a day of galavanting along the Garden Route. Although we live here, we'd never really ventured that far along the path for food. Nevertheless, we found it charming, inviting and perfect for families. The food is amazing, the owner/chef/chatty person is just so welcoming and the wifi is free! It's a must... More

Had an awesome lazy lunch here during the peak festive season. They have a fantastic craft beer selection and delicious food on offer. We had the Monkey Business Platter - highly recommended. The service was efficient and attentive without being intrusive. Will definitely return.

Wow ..... cannot say one bad thing about this restaurant. Had the Lamb Burger with the Craft Beer Platter....with zuccini fritters instead of bread roll. The attentive management and staff just finished off a really pleasant lunch. Thank goodness our first choice for lunch was closed, Zucchini has now taken that spot.

After acrobranch kids wanted food, they got wholesome food, good sized buyers and excellent sweet potatoe fries, panini's were filling and tastes are worth the effort to go here. Service was disjointed although very friendly, we expected a little better.

My husband and I had dinner at Zucchini with our three boys. They were off to play on the playground while we enjoyed some time together. The Timberlake set-up is safe and family friendly so we could relax and enjoy a break. The food, made with fresh produce was delicious, especially the beef burger. Service was fantastic and the owner... More

I've enjoyed some outdoor meals with family & friends on numerous occassions. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Service is great, as is the ambience - very relaxed in a charming setting. After your meal, meander through the various shops and be sure not to miss the Fairy Garden!!

We ate here twice as we enjoyed it so much. It is a very good place to stop on your journey along the garden route. The staff were very helpful and the vegetarian meal was excellent and very good value for money. The portions are huge so you may need a doggy bag!

Had a late lunch with the family yesterday. It was a cold and rainy day and with the wood fire burning in the fireplace positioned in the centre of the restaurant, combined with the homely decor created the perfect atmosphere for a great experience. That was further enhanced by fast and friendly service, a good bottle of wine and excellent... More

The ambiance is as bad as the decor, tired, dusty and neglected and as bored as the owner / manager was with his customers. That's why restaurants in town are full and this one only has 3 customers, complete lack of interest by the owner/manager The waitress wasn't bad she was friendly and helpful, the food surprising good the wine...
