Expensive but good

Although the food is good the Orange restaurant is still totally overpriced. Setting and service is excellent but still don't justify the high prices. I don't mind expensive Restaurants at all but this is a bit too much for what you get. Apart from prices a wonderful place.

The Orange Restaurant in Nelspruit is an excellent choice for dinner in Mpumalanga. The setting on a hillside overlooking the city is sumptuous, the food excellent, the prices reasonable and the service very good. Having eaten there several times I would suggest their beef or chicken entrees as none have disappointed. A surprising favorite of mine was the "Chocolate-Chile Filet."... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a wonderful review for the Orange restaurant.

Found the food to be of average standard. small portions with high prices is not something a Nelspruiter is too fond of. However service was good and had a great evening with friends.

Hi Scott, we appreciate your feedback. Orange Restaurant is a more up-market facility using finer quality ingredients and produce, hence the prices reflecting this. However, I am so pleased to see that you enjoyed our service and had a wonderful evening. More

Turned up expecting a nice big feed and great meat and was very disappointed. The meal portions are tiny and the chef must of been on strike because the meat was terribly cooked. The restaurant looks "high end" and has fantastic views but it needs to back it up with good food.

We came here after reading the reviews and hotel recommendation. Sadly it was not up to scratch or what you'd expect from the #2 restaurant in Nelspruit. We ordered Kudu and Ostrich, both medium. Kudu was well done and Ostrich, first small piece overcooked and second larger piece rare in the middle and inedible. I literally had to chew and... More
