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! 32 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.

The Zucchini Restaurant is a must have for all organic food lovers and vegetarians! The food is amazing! Lots of vegetarian (even vegan) options for very fair prices.

Would definitely recommend this place to... More

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.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We would like to apologize for not meeting your expectations on Sunday. All of our customer's opinions are taken in stride, as this is how we are able to learn, improve upon and grow. I’ve never been a fan of ‘he-said she-said’ situations, but given this review is public,... More

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...

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
