iLali (meaning ‘Village’ in Xhosa) is exactly
what it sounds like. A village. A village where people can come together to unwind, socialise and have a good time.
Our village will welcome you with a drink at our social bar, a vibrant ambience where we set the tone with live music and a generous yet finely curated plate of food. With the best spot in the Garden Route, we are ready to show you what Wilderness has to offer right on our doorstep.
We have a desire to create new memories so come on over, unwind and raise a glass. We love people. We love food. We love a good time.Book A Table

"This is truly a winner in Wilderness! What an absolute dining pleasure.
Popped in for coffee with friends, then met other friends there for wine and pizza.... excellent wines and tasty pizzas. Three of us girls went for salads and were so thrilled with delicious salads, filling and so tasty. Sat at the fire and it was so cosy.
The menu is interesting, the food is tasty, the wine selection is superb and the service is outstanding.
This is a gem of a restaurant!""
“I would like to thank the staff and manager and barman at Ilali, We had our 10 year renewal of our wedding vows on the beach in Wilderness, BUT the highlight was the experience that we had at Ilali.
The venue is perfect and the staff kind and friendly. We were treated like we were royalty. Friends suggested that we have the TAPAS menu, they were not wrong. We were over 16 people and no one went home hungry, the food just kept coming. The barman gave the girls a bottle throwing show that everyone was talking about.
The whole day was great but the experience at Ilali made the day. I would once again like to thank everyone at Ilali. This app only allows for 5 stats, I would give Ilali 10 Stars.”
“This restaurant is an absolute must for anyone that is in the garden route. The atmosphere is relaxed and the restaurant has a warm and classy feel to it.The food quality is of very high standard with lots of flavour and each bite taking you into a sort of flavour filled trance. The staff is really friendly and professional, making your return to the restaurant inevitable.”
