Zinzi always exceeds our expectations with impeccable food choices and preparation, to the amazing service and staff. We always look forward to every opportunity we have to dine in their elegant atmosphere. A must try if in the Plett area. Worth the drive for sure.

A meal at Zinzi causes one to behave elegantly because everything is so refined and of a high standard: from the table linen, the well-spoken and knowledgeable waiters to the outstanding, uniquely presented meals. Well worth a visit and the cost.

Very good food, service, presentation, hostess etc. Good restaurant for a special occasion, or any time, and while you pay for what you get, it's not OTP expensive like some similar places can be.
