Quite outstanding and amazing value for money. The service was impeccable. We had the beef served with a stunning red wine. Tender and perfectly cooked.

I recently visited Orange, the restaurant in Sa, and I have to say, my overall experience was okay. While the service was a bit slow, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The staff was friendly and welcoming, which helped make up...for the slower service. The menu had a good variety of options, and the food itself was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the flavorful dishes and the fresh ingredients used. Although there were some drawbacks with the slow service, the tasty food and friendly atmosphere definitely made up for it. All in all, Orange is a restaurant worth trying if you're in the area and looking for a decent meal.More

The restaurant had a private function and we were walk-in customers. We were handled like we were trash. We had a choice to sit at any one of 2 tables situated in the hottest part of the restaurant, and nowhere else. By the time we...left, 2 hours later, most of the tables in the restaurant were still not occupied. Was it really necessary to seat us by a window looking at other diners eating in an air conditioned dining room that was half empty, especially when the private function was held outside? The service was average, I had to go to the bar myself to get another beer. The starters were tasty and presented well. For the main meal, I ordered a rib-eye steak to be done medium rare, what I got was rare, on the verge of blue, it was very tasty but was full of sinew, that I found myself spitting out on a regular basis. I was offered something else to eat when I complained but I didn’t accept their offer. I have had bad steaks in my life, but I never had to pay as much as I paid for this one. The desert was average, mass produced and stored just like the rest of their menu. In conclusion, fine dining does not mean adding flowers to your plate, the food has to be of good quality as well. Just another overpriced restaurant that offer tasty premade food but cannot handle dishes that require instant preparationMore
