Fabulous menu offering a unique variety of items. My husband and I had venison in a pepper sauce cooked to perfection. Tiramisu for dessert was wrapped in a thin layer of white chocolate that was absolutely decadent!

Zachary's is a nice place for fine dining though located a bit off site. We enjoyed it for a nice dinner. Service is very good and so is the food. Wine List is quite comprehensive. We enjoyed the Birthday singing for a neighbouring table, a great job by the whole kitchen crew.

We had booked a taxi to take us to Zachary's but unfortunately there was a mix-up at our guesthouse which led us to be taken in a minibus with several other people into Knysna itself rather than to Zachary's. Consequently we arrived about 15 minutes late and I was extremely concerned that they might have thought we were not coming.... More
