Lovely setting, lovely staff - but there it ends. And really, restaurants have to be all about food. The food was so 1980's. What boiled down to a very old fashioned prawn cocktail, butternut soup, roast chicken, lamb chops and chips (a bit soggy). Can't understand why so many reviewers are so impressed!

Let me tell you, the food was awesome! The wine "had wine by the glass" even that was of high quality. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, there when you need them, not when you don't (I have no idea how they "sense" it). The food was well presented. Very tasty, very good! Thanks for a lovely evening.

Me and my wife had dinner at the restaurant about a week ago on our way to a few days at the Kruger Park. The view overlooking Nelspruit is absolutely astonishing. The Menu had something on it for all tastes. The attention of the waitresses made us feel very important and the food was superb.

The Orange is on the same property as Loerie's Call and Francolin hotel. We stayed 2 nights in Loerie's Call and they reserved our table in the Orange for us. But even if you do not stay in any of these 2 places, I would recommend to make a detour and visit "The Orange". Their food is very good, the... More

I had heard such great things about this restaurant and was so looking forward to a good evening of food, the mussel starter was sadly very overcooked and the salmon was bland. The wine on the other hand was excellent, the view incredible and the service very good.

Staying at the lorries call lodge gave us the advantage of dining twice in this amazing restaurant that overlooked the city of Nelspruit. The first time we had escargot, ostrich, squash soup, Kipling and baby chicken along with a bottle of rose bubbly. The second time we had ox tongue, braised ox tail and a wonderful chef creation of dark... More
