So on a country road one Saturday morning...... this restaurant is a breath of fresh air, superb menu, great mix of styles with indoor and outdoor covered dining areas. Quality of food is really excellent and priced exceptionally well for the quality and service we received. The breakfast menu was comprehensive with choices for any palate. We received a complimentary... More

When it comes to presentation and taste, it is hard to beat this Bistro. We were lucky, because without booking you will be out of luck, but they had one table. Money well spend on the food, the wine and the service. Twice this good, out of town, can't be luck. This place is GOOD!

It's a bit of a wait, especially on a Saturday night, but the food is beyond worth the wait. I never knew merlot jelly was a thing until I tried it at Silver Orange Bistro. Might name my kids after it :)

Really excellent starters - possibly best sushi and salmon starters we have ever had. The meats were immaculately cooked beef, ostrich and chicken. The service was attentative and pretty well done. What really disappointed was that all 3 meals were served in mashed patatoes, with cooked-up vegetables. A real disappointment. For the restaurant rated so high - a real let... More

Phenomenally good service with the ambiance to match. The 4 three course meals I have eaten here have all been excellent in every respect - considerable attention is paid to the accompanying vegetables by way of example. One of my top 5 meals was a chouriso stuffed quail - then just a special, now part of the menu The wine... More

A lovely 40 minute drive from Johannesburg you will find one of the best restaurants in South Africa. Ample parking and cosy house atmosphere await you. My first "wow" was the wine list. One of the best and most extensive that I have seen since a La Colombo visit. Then the food - every dish a masterpiece. After a starter... More

I visited the Silver Orange some years ago so I knew we would experience a feast of unique foods. The menu is varied and hugely appetising and the dishes live up to their descriptions. We loved the romantic mood and beautiful garden setting. The mosquitoes unfortunately also love it here, but the restaurants have several cans of anti-insect spray on... More
