We loved the food and the place itself so much, that we went there three days in a row for lunch and even for cakes and milkshakes a few hours after. And it was also a very pet-friendly place, so our dog got entertained by hens, monkeys and other dogs outside!

Popped in for a light lunch. Lots of menu options. Paninis were excellent and the largest variety of draughts on tap I have seen in the Wilderness area (6!) Wine selection is very good. Service was friendly and efficient and lots of interesting decor. Ward of warning... the monkeys throughout the area are a real problem and one stole the... More

Set in a small tourist village 10 minutes from Wilderness this is a gorgeous restaurant with delicious food - mostly gone grown. The meals are substantial and all made with real care. Would definitely recommend.

We usually come for lunch when passing through town. This restaurant and the entire Timberlake village has a very relaxed atmosphere, you can sit outside in sun or shade beautifully, the service is friendly, swift and experienced, the food is always delicious and lately even much faster arriving than a while back, which we much applaud! We love the springbok... More

Lovely venue which was rather peaceful despite being right on the busy N2. Food was enjoyed by everyone - 3 people. Service wasn't up to par though and we had to wait an unnecessarily long time for anyone to come near us. The open-air was great except when a large group of German tourists decided to smoke at the table... More

This restaurant was a lovely find. The wide selection of local craft beers was impressive and included beers that we'd never heard of in our home, Cape Town. I was a little disappointed that the ravioli wasn't available when I ordered it but my lamb burger was a terrific second prize! Good food, good wine and beer, nice relaxed atmosphere... More

Said it all in the heading. Returned food and left! Only two tables! Waitress pleasant but why was she not chasing up order!

Went there for breakfast while my wife was on the horse trail. Had the gammon breakfast which was excellent. The coffee is also very good. Service was great and the chef made rounds around the tables.

We sat for a few drinks, coffee and a light meal. All was up to scratch. We were warned about the monkeys and the bees but they do become a nuisance unfortunately. (Sometimes burning coffee in a little bowl helps to fend the bees off). Overall, a nice experience.

Thank EurotripZA

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.
