The food is great: simple, yet complex flavours. It is a lovely place for a Sunday morning brunch with friends and family. It's child friendly and pet friendly. Do try their omelettes! We will definitely be back!

I've been here a few times over the past year and have always enjoyed the food and experience. The menu is interesting. My new favourite is the dronk bok burger of springbok pattie, poached pears and peanut brittle on a home made bun. There is often live music. Yesterday though the service was extremely slow. I think they were short... More

We saw this place when driving to Knysna before evening meal with friends in Wilderness. The restaurant was totally fine with good service and food. Most of the nearby shops were closed, it was mid week in mid March. Fortunately a wine store was open so we could buy a bottle for our evening hosts!!

Zucchini is a very nice and cozy restaurant. The food they offer is really good and high quality! The prices are appropriate! The atmosphere inside is very nice, and the staff is very friendly! The restaurant is located within a small "village" offering some little nice shops.

Food was quite good and varied, service was nice, prices were reasonable. The sound system was broken and there were few customers, making the place eerily quiet! Tucked into the forest with open doors, we had a rodent come through and a staff killed it before our eyes! Although the food was excellent, it will be hard to remember this... More

Dear Guy L. Thank you for the review. It makes us unhappy to know that your visit here at Zucchini restaurant was not up to your satisfaction. However the staff member (Karen) did not in fact kill the rodent but the rodent died from poison, to prevent them from entering the restaurant. It is extremely hard to manage all of... More

We all had the by burger and non of us really liked the taste of the beef. The fries were excellent, especially the sweet potato ones.

A visit with another couple on a Friday night, a few other tables with early diners around 6.00 pm. One guest orders the fillet with Yorkshire pudding and I warn the pudding was cold and dry for me on a previous visit. It is cold and dry AGAIN, and if you can't make proper Yorkshire pudding then please don't serve... More

We stopped off at the Timberlake Organic village and found this place. We decided to have lunch here. We sat outside in a very picturesque scene. The menu was very good, with a big selection and they catered for my girlfriends gluten and dairy intolerance's. She actually couldn't believe the choices she had. The food was very good and got...

Amazing restaurant situated midway between Sedgefield and Wilderness. Delicious, wholesome meal enjoyed in a rustic setting. Lots of fun things to keep the kids busy, beautiful bird life and cheeky little monkeys kept us all entertained.

What more can I say. The food's delicious, the service is great and the setting is great. They're willing to make changes to dishes to accommodate my allergy and to make meals vegan. Definitely a favourite place for us!!

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.
