Don't pass without visiting!

A truly beautiful and friendly place. Great menu, with a large selection of drinks. Loved the food and the great service from the waitress. One could easily spend the whole day here...

Great setting but rather disappointing after ordering a platter the poor waitress had to come back and say the chef won't make a platter today Sunday! Long wait for food and then cold burger arrived. Not a very enjoyable meal at all. But waitress was very good.

I’ve never been a fan of ‘he-said she-said’ situations, but given this review is public,... More

The only thing I would have changed: I would take a whole day to stroll around, eat the great food, drink the craft beer and just sit by the hearty fireplace until the sun sets. You want to play in a fairy garden? Done. Want a family meal? Done. Coctails with friends? Sorted. Highly recommended

Great selection of craft beer and wine! Food is to die for and atmosphere is perfect! Would definitely recommend the burgers. If your in or around Wilderness or Knysna make a turn you won't be disappointed!

We have driven past Timberlake Organic Village many times on our visits to this area, but never stopped. On this trip we found a leaflet about Zucchini and decided to pay a late lunchtime visit. We are glad we did. The restaurant was quiet - it was a late Monday lunchtime. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. We really liked... More

Laid back and chilled but the food is really good. Mostly organic and locally sourced. Great atmosphere and on Sunday, a bit of live music just to make everyone really sit back and relax.
