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.

“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I have travelled quite a lot and I must say this was one of the best restaurant experience I've ever had. I recommend going for all 3 courses of the meal to enjoy most out of it. The burger was one of a kind.

The way the restaurant is furnished make you feel even better and it makes your stay and unforgettable experience.

“Great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We came across Zucchini when we were staying in Wilderness for a few nights. We had one of the best meals there out of all during our trip to South Africa. The food was very tasty, exciting, looked great and was local. Service was also fantastic and the decor and atmosphere were really pleasant! I can highly recommend this restaurant if you're around Wilderness!

“Oh Dear!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

We arrived, a group of six, at this restaurant early one evening when it was relatively quiet. It seemed that anything that could go wrong did, although our waiter was charming and very apologetic! We ordered our meals and wine but the first three choices of wine were out of stock. One member of our party ordered a cold starter but to be served as a main with the rest of our meals. It came about half an hour before the rest, as a starter. I asked for just a drizzle of sauce on mine - it came swimming in gravy. My husband's meat was very overdone and three people found sand in the salad! We all asked for the same desert, some with ice cream, some without. Only one had ice cream, the others all had cream. The pepper mills had a mixture of salt and pepper or salt and herbs in them, not well mixed up. The member of our group who ordered the starter/main (smoked fish therefore quite salty in itself) ground a lot of what she could see from her side of the peper mill as black pepper, only to find the fish was practically inedible due to the amount of salt. Service was also very slow as there was only one waiter although there were only two other small groups dining.
