About Zizi's Restaurant

Meticulous sourcing, preparing and presentation of food ensure Zizi’s remains ahead of the game.

Dark wooden tables dressed in splashes of red and orange hues contrasted by rattan chairs and soft ambient lighting invite a calm and warm atmosphere.

Start with favourites like crumbed camembert and 1/2 shell mussels or for something more adventurous try Rudi's snails. For mains a tender and succulent Lamb Shank or for fish lovers try the popular surf and turf or tasty kassler chops with homemade apple sauce.

Dine in the ladies bar, uniquely decorated or alfresco on the expansive veranda looking out onto the ocean. Zizzi’s Restaurant is a welcoming dining experience in Umtentweni.

Went with 11 guests for New Year's Eve dinner.We were told when making the reservation that the restaurant will close at midnight and the website had great reviews on the service and food quality. Unfortunately, the menu was very limited for the night. The wine list was lacking. The bar and restaurant closed at 10 pm and we were made to feel unwelcome when the waiters started to shut the doors and stack the empty tables and chairs. To top the disappointment: the birthday cake that I had sourced from an external bakery was " mistakenly" eaten by the staff.
