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

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!!

Nice little village and worth the stop. Play area for the kids and nice food. Loved their coffee. Service is a bit slow, but the food was very nice. Spend some time at this Timberland Village.

Had lunch at zucchini after been told by friends it was fab, but was a bit disappointed. The springbok shank was good, but my wife's kingclip was not very good, sadly. Maybe we will try again sometime.

Ok so the girls wanted to go shopping, you know all that artisan stuff they love and all you want is a beer and to eat. Stopped at the Timberlake Oragnic Village, itself a quaint roadside shopping sort of place and found ourselves at the Zucchini for lunch. Well craft IPA beer and homemade pasta, homemade this and homemade that.... More

The food is made super freshly with organic and local ingredients. The staff is very friendly and attentive. We loved the restaurant with its food and service so much that we spent two nights in a row there. Thank you! I wish there would be more restaurants like the Zucchini out there.

Thank Reisende U

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.
