Description: 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.

We stopped in for a quick lunch and it was quicker and better than expected. Excellent range of craft beers, my son's hake and chips was superb, really fresh and accurately cooked, and the Belgian chocolate cheesecake was to die for. Potato wedges had that stodgy interior which can come from par cooking then sitting about and the patty on... More

We ate here about three times. Owner/managers - awesome commitment to service and quality. Sadly a tree took down a powerline in the middle of their busiest time. They improvised very well.

A great little restaurant, surprisingly located just off the N2. A really tempting menu, friendly staff, and a solid selection of craft beers (including a trading platter). Worth a visit. #FreeWiFi

This restaurant is definitely my favourite in the Wilderness. Fabulous setting, quirky décor and interesting food options. Our waiter John was great, really friendly and made our dining experience even more awesome. The horse saddle bar stools are pretty cool too :) Don't miss this one!

Pleasant, relaxed atmosphere with friendly, efficient staff. This restaurant is a good place to relax, the meals took a while to arrive but as they are all freshly prepared it is worth being patient. My husband had the "Frikkedelertjies, mashed potato, vegetables and gravy" which was very tasty and having gravy was unusual and he really enjoyed that. I had... More

I visited this restaurant with my parents while on vacation. We weren't planning on visiting this restaurant, in fact we haven't even heard of it before. It was the beer tasting that drew us in. The restaurant had a very nice vibe to it, the food was real value for money and super delicious. The craft beers and local wines... More

My only caveat here is that if you are in a hurry this may not be the best place - however if you aren't then this is a lovely spot and the waiting staff do try to ensure that you have drinks quickly - my boyfriend loved the craft beer tasting platter! The dishes were made with good fresh ingredients... More

Really good management and the food is fantastic, genuine. It feels like being at home and why not end up in the sofas with a book?
