We visited Silver Orange for a birthday dinner of a friend. The food was delicious and beautiful, really beautiful presented meals. It is small and intimate and they are very busy, so be patient and visit with friends and family or have some of their stunning wines while you wait. Rather pricey but well worth it, I will definitely return.

It is the perfect country setting with fine dinning food, without anyone being stuck up. The waiters were very professional. So much so I was never able to pour my own drink. Great place find a wonderful personal meal.

Having been here about 3 years ago and raved about it, now I'd suggest you give it a second thought. Whilst the starters were excellent, my main course, supposedly rib eye steak was in fact a tough sirloin. Service was atrocious

After having tried to drop in without a booking a number of times, finally made the effort to make a booking. Wonderful gastronomic experience! On arrival was greeted with complementary glass of Muscadel which was just the perfect way to begin a perusal of the menu. Just enough choice but not overwhelming. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. I'll... More

What an amazing find, a good hour drive from Johannesburg (allowing for traffic congestion) but so well worth the trip! Silver Orange Bistro is set on a working orange farm, in the original thatch roofed house on the property. Each room is decorated in eclectic style and the large varied menu is an absolute delight for the taste buds making... More

I really liked the delicate balance in the way the place had a casual feeling being in an old thatch roofed farm house, with the food being top class. we had a lunch that was delicious and dessert that rated one of the best I have had for a while.

One of the best meals I've had in ages. Three courses yet didn't feel overly full like so many places. The matured rib eye was one of the tastiest cuts I've had

We went here for Easter lunch and it was an amazing dining experience and are better than most Joburg restaurants. The plates are very well presented! They have a great selection of mains and desserts and its hard to choose one item. I had the pork ribs and the honey and orange marinade was lip smacking good. Their desserts were... More
