We celebrated a 70th birthday ( MINE would you believe.) this past Sunday. Aug.31 at this amazing venue. What a fantastic place. Different rooms for guests and 5-star service made it a most extremely enjoyable day. Our hostess, Tanya, an incredibly well-qualified member of this establishment, went out of her way to accommodate our every need and, suffice to say,... More

We arrived at the Silver Orange Bistro in Hartbeespoort for lunch on a deceptively sunny winter's afternoon. The restaurant opened in 2004 on a family owned farm, Altyd Mooi and is nestled in amongst the bush with a wonderful view of the orchard. The decor is understated allowing the antique crystal chandeliers to shine. We were seated immediately and offered... More

My wife and I recently had lunch at this lovely country restaurant. The food could not be faulted and was certainly one of the best meals that we have had for a long time! This is highly recommended!

The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The rand to sterling rate is so good that it made if a very reasonably priced meal too. All our meals were perfect, steak, curry and game.

Went to the Silver Orange for Sunday lunch. The meal was absolutely divine. The best passionfruit sorbet I have eaten in my adult life. The prime rib on the bone with bone marrow was sublime and the starters - frogs legs and scallops were sublime. The restaurant was busy so would suggest always securing a booking before trekking out there.... More

We have been to the Silver Orange a couple of times now, for both lunch and dinner, and it was delicious every time. There is a great wine selection and this is one of the few places where the staff actually knows what they are talking about. Looking forward to our next visit already!

It's at about an hour from the center of Pretoria, very close to the lake. Very kind staff looks after you to make you feel comfortable and to explain all you ask about the dishes. Prices are a little higher than the average, but I was happy to pay a little more, because of the very high quality of the... More

We went to this restaurant after seeing it was number one on trip advisor for the area. We were not disappointed. It is a lovely venue and the service was friendly and efficient, despite the restaurant being quite busy. I had the duck and fig samoosa started, which was delicious, and we both had the fillet steak with gorgonzola. This... More
