Many years since we last visited Silver Orange and we were not disappointed on our return. Food and service were excellent and we were well looked after by David. A great afternoon was topped off with the delivery of a birthday presented desert , even...though we had not, formally, advised them of the birthday. It won’t be as long until our next visitMore

What a beautiful place and fantastic food. We sat on the patio outside and had the pork belly and the crocodile carpaccio special starters - absolutely delicious and unique taste. The marrow steak was also great. Beautiful artistry on the plates and attention to detail....Waiters are very professional and friendly. Would definitely come again.More

Beautifully set in a working orange farm, this bistro is definitely worth the trip from Johannesburg (approx 1 hr). It's almost like an instant holiday, a'la "Under the Tuscan Sun" The food is delicious and reasonably priced, the staff attentive, and the scenery not to...be outdone. Their sister establishment Almost Orange (on the same farm) also looks superb is is next on our list. Both highly recommended.More

This bistro is a UNDERRATED hidden gem! Went for lunch and the food was unmatched. I was catered for really well as a pescatarian and had a handful of off menu dishes to choose from. The sushi was delectable, the seafood soup has a hearty,...generous portion and the bread was fresh & a perfect addition. My husband absolutely enjoyed his meat options and couldn’t fault a single thing. We finished our 3 course experience with the cheesecake and it was heavenly (not too sweet). The only PROBLEM I have is finding a restaurant that can top this experience. The service, food quality & portions and the orange grove were whimsical. Closest “Joburg” experience I’ve had to vineyard restaurant gems in the Cape. COMPLIMENTS TO THE CHEFMore

We had the pleasure of a first visit to the Silver Orange Bistro on 27 Mat 2023. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we entered the restaurant and were shown to our table in well set up area which provided for privacy...of conversation, a fire was going and the room was nicely heated irrespective of the cold weather. The service received from the staff was excellent at all times during the evening - attentive but not intrusive. The menu had some great options and a few specials were also available. The wine list is comprehensive. The dishes were excellent, its been quite a while since i had such an enjoyable gastronomic experience - my compliments to the chef for an excellent evening! The quality and taste of the dishes served were excellent and well presented. We will definitely dine out at the Solver Orange Bistro again - I believe that it must be rated as one of the top restaurants and is well worth travelling to!More

Had to take a decent drive out for this one but so well worth it. You don't associate Harties with fine dining but Silver Orange Bistro offers way more than just excellent food. Wonderful gardens, citrus groves and even a second restaurant option. Our meals...were excellent as was the coffee and service. Best restaurant in Harties and far better than many high end spots in Jozi and Pretoria.More

This was our second time eating at the Silver Orange and it was again absolutely outstanding. The food was truly exceptional and the service was great! It has a lovely location, surrounded by a gorgeous garden. Depending on the weather, I would suggest sitting outside....I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I truly believe that any dish on the menu will be absolutely delicious.More

The restaurant is surrounded by beautiful gardens and has a tranquil and relaxed country feel. The food is fresh, tasty and generous, clearly made with love. Even our cappuccinos were divine, thank you Pearson. God bless your hands! Our service attendant was attentive, and we...were well looked after. A huge thank you to the whole Silver Orange team, you brought your A-Game. It was, all round, a truly 5-star experience! You have to experience it for yourself. Don't hesitate GO!More

For those of you want to make a reservation, I suggest it's probably best to call or go via the website, it's hard for restaurants to deal with reservation through so many media outlets.
