“Delicious”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

We booked here on the basis of other reviews and the food was really delicious!

One of the best meals I have had in ages and my husband had amazing duck. Service was quite slow but I think our waiter was new.

(Don't follow the tripadvisor directions link, it took us in the wrong direction.)

“Good food and ambiance, but service slow.”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

One of the better restaurants around Hartbeespoort Dam. The food is good but pricey and the service slow. The setting is pleasant despite being just off a busy road. Would recommend if you are not in a hurry. We have only been there in the evenings when time was not a major factor.

One of the better restaurants around the dam, food is nice however menu is very limited and doesn't change much service is a bit slow bit friendly overall a nice place to sit and relax when we go out to eat we don't mind slow as we are there to relax.

“Silver Orange Bistro poor service”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

On 22/02/2014, I took clients from the USA to the Silver Orange Bistro for lunch.
We were the first clients to arrive there, at 11:50.
Only later, did about 6 or 8 clients arrive, so they were not very busy.
The food orders were not complicated;

6 Oysters.. how long does it take to open 6 oysters?

Sushi..... how long does it take to make 6 pieces of Sushi?

Pasta Salad .....How long does it take to throw together a pasta salad?

Grilled kingklip, without sauce, and potato wedges instead of mash....It should not take long to grill a piece of fish

The food took an HOUR to reach our table

When the order came, the waiter wanted to bring snails, which were never ordered.

When the kingklip arrived, it was smothered in sauce, on a bed of mash, no potato wedges.

At no stage did management appear, to apologise.

My clients cancelled their order, paid for what had been consumed, and left.
