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

Without the slightest doubt one of the best meals I've had anywhere, ever. Excellent and welcoming service, and food that was simply splendid. There was a lot to choose from on the menu, and ended up plumping for something a bit different - crocodile and warthog carpaccio. It was beautifully presented and exquisitely tasty. Judging by the satisfied faces of... More

The owners and our hosts at the ostrich manor recomended this excellent restaurant. We had a superb lunch, top quality food and wines. It is a must to visit if you are in the hartebeespoort area.

Thoroughly enjoyed my lunch at the Silver Orange Bistro. Menu had a good selection of dishes. I particularly enjoyed the scallops starter and the seafood stew. No complaints about the service and we enjoyed the quaint ambiance.
