Treat yourself when next you passing through Wilderness and visit Zucchinis for interesting rustic cuisine; Springbok meat balls and steaks, Ox tongue and delicious local puddings. The country setting and warm fireplace is central to creating a home from home dining experience. A good idea for a function.

Lunch at this restaurant today was very pleasant. We both had burgers - my husband the beef and the chicken for myself. The food is ultra fresh and produced on site, and we both agreed that the burgers were the best we have had for a long time. A lovely country restaurant well worth the visit.

Popped in for lunch here with my brother and we were pleasantly surprised by the amazing meals on offer. My brother had the 'dronk bok' burger and I had the 'gooey gammon' sandwich - as odd as those sound, they were both amazing. If the portions hadn't been so massive I would have loved to have sampled other items from... More

As a family which includes 3 children, we enjoyed a meal at Zucchini Restaurant at Timberlake. The hamburgers amongst other food were excellent and the price was reasonable. The surrounding music was pleasant on the ear.

What a find! You could not ask for warmer more friendly place for dinner, and the food was fantastic. Our waiter, Gustav, was friendly, attentive, efficient and fun (according to the children). Wish it was closer to home so we could visit more often.

My husband and I made a delightful stop at Timberlake organic village on 7 May 2016. Between the very interesting shops we found Zucchini and agreed that this will be our venue for lunch. We were warmly welcomed by friendly staff members at the door. The crackling fireplace not only warmed the restaurant but added to the charming and inviting... More

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.
