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.

Quirky excellence

After a warm recommendation from friends who had visited Zuchinni's for lunch we booked dinner on a Saturday night. We were the only car in the carpark at 1900, and although a few other couples arrived later there was a distinct lack of atmosphere. The waitress was very welcoming and witty; the... read more

Zucchini restaurant made for a lovely lunch spot at the organic little village of Timberlake. The atmosphere was relaxed, staff very friendly and helpful, and the menu creative and inviting - i had a hard time deciding what to get with all the dishes sounding so good! Their chickpea burger really delivered!

When we travel between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth we always make a point of stopping here. It is such a pleasant break and much better than any petrol station. This time I had the best veggie salad ever. The Afro Salad is warm rooted veggies on a bed of fresh greens, cherry tomatoes and spaghetti cucumber, with olives and... More

I had dinner here with a large group of friends, we were the only people there that evening so we were made very welcome. I had the Squid to start, this was served in a creamy white wine sauce and then the Chicken Salad as a main, both were very good. This place is well worth a visit

We ate here twice during our stay in Hoekwil and were surpirised by the excellent quality of food, a great range of choices and a very friendly staff. The first night was so pleasant that we returned the following day for dinner. Definitely a winner§

Good setting with monkeys running around. Bad sign was simple food order took a while to arrive. Green salad arrived without avo without the slightest explanation, fish arrived looking bleak and was smelly, so simply could not be eaten. Would not recommend it to anyone. Life is to short ........

Divine & healthy food. Beautifully situated under oak trees, just watch out for the monkeys as they love to share your meal with you! Was great to find a restaurant suitable for my vegan friends :) Super service by our waiter, James.

We were SO lucky to discover the Zucchini is open for lunch and dinner! We were staying in Wilderness during peak season, and all the restaurants in walking distance from our hotel were full to capacity. We were told that we could only be seated at 9:00pm and this would not do as we have small children. I was delighted... More
