“Excellent food - incredible value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

We were staying at Tsala so we decided to eat at Zinzi - this was an excellent decision. We had to book and when we arrived the restaurant was busy. The staff were friendly and efficient. The restaurant had a good atmosphere with locals, hotel guests and visitors. The menu was great and my husband and I struggled to choose from a range of cuisines. The food was excellent big portions and great flavours. This was by far the best meal we had in South Africa and was excellent value.

“Worth the drive.......FAB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

What a hidden gem, away from the main area of Plettenberg but well worth the drive out. A hidden oasis with fantastic service and food. We thoroughly enjoyed.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

I found this on my Frommers guide, as I was looking for a child-friendly place to have our last dinner in Knysna. Was wonderfully surprised by the atmosphere, the excellent food and the great service. Very reasonably priced given the high standard.

“Will be back again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Excellent food with great variety to suit all of us. Did not get much of my Salmon as was such a winner that everyone wanted to taste it. Therefore have to go back for more. Good variety of wine to pair with meals. Can only summarise with one word: excellent
