“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

What an experience. The view is more than what I expected. the surroundings are well looked after. These people know what they doing. From the start we felt like kings, the way we were treated. The food was excellent and could not believe the cheap prices. The plates were beautiful and very tasteful. Well done to aal staff for an unforgettable evening.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Wow!
We visit Zinzi the last night of our vacation after recommendation from Christa at Christiana lodge in Plettenberg Bay.
We stayed in SA for 3,5 weeks, and this was probably the best meal we had in our entire trip.
When we arrived we started with a drink outside by the fireplace. Since it was my birthday, we were suprised with two glasses of bubbles. So nice! We could'nt decide which starter to choose - it all looked so delicious. We ended up with 7 starters instead of maincours, and we did'nt regret it for a second. Out of all the delicious food we had, the wild mushroom risotto probably was the favorite for the both of us.
The staff was very friendly, serviceminded, and with a smile.
The restaurant is located in the wood (at Tsala Treetop lodge) and it is a restaurant with atmosphere.
If you're in the area you shoud absolutely visit Zinzi.

“Yummy”

We had to go twice as my husband got jealous of the meal I had and wanted it for himself. You must try the morocan spiced lamb shank. truly declicious. This was the only restaurant of our three week holiday we went to twice.

“Exceptional!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

I was staying in Plettenberg Bay and came across Zinzi as it was ranked no 1 on tripadvisor.

The restaurant is located in the Tsala Treetop Lodge which itself is a 5 star lodge. The setting is idyllic, being located amongst lush trees and vast open spaces. The restaurant itself is elegant with a rustic feel. The furniture is 'aged' and gives the restaurant a somewhat hunting lodge feel. It opens up to amazing ponds and gardens.

The menu is not fussy and the food was great. It is also very reasonable. The staff seemed well trained and were able to answer any questions I had. We enjoyed the restaurant so much that we are going back soon!
