When staying at the Francolin Lodge, dined in this restaurant. Was probably one of the best diners we had while staying in South-Africa. Very friendly staff and succulent menu. Top GT’s!

We had the most splendid evening ,being spoiled after 4 days selfcatering in the bush !! Starting with champagne for woman‘s day and just went on endlessly : the starters were specially arranged a pleasure for the eye and the taste ! Main with meet...- whartog, chateubriand and lamb were all not only very good but also great portions ( not to expect in Germany with fine dining !! ) My niece , nephew and I enjoyed the evening-the setup and the view to the most and it will stay in our memory as a highlight of our trip ! ( I might come back as I come back on a regular base to this beautiful country !!!)More

Food, location and a wonderful selection of wine. I ordered prawns a bottle of Rupert and Rothschild, followed by great coffee and a marshmallow/chocolate tart. Friendly and efficient service with the most stunning views over Mbombela. Thanks

This was the worst fine dining experience I have had in my life. We made a booking for 7 and shortly ordered our starters and mains at the same time. It took almost 2 hours for prep of main food. We had three ladies visiting...our table to tell us the food was shortly arriving and this made it worse. By the time the food arrived my mood had changed. In 10 minutes i ate and then it was 9 (closing time)More

I was so looking forward to the outstanding food that Orange has to offer on my regular business trips. I was however very disappointed in the food and service. Service was rushed as if they wanted us to eat and leave. Food was very average...for the money that you pay. Orange has now become overrated and very average and definitely not value for money.More

Too average for us, it's overrated, and that's pretty sad, it uses to be a VERY Good restaurant in the past, but since the chef left, it's not the same. The meat was not the top quality and was too cooked, the rest was just...ok, but I can do way better at home, I also thought that woolworth cooked food is much tastier. The place is cozy and nice, the environment is surrounded by nature, and the staff was also very friendly and kind.More

True definition of fine dining - the food really was amazing and the restaurant is beautiful. However, it is a pity that the management does not take action against disruptive guests - our evening was tainted by a loud table who openly made anti-gay remarks...and was completely drunk, even walking around in the restaurant without masks and nothing is done about it. Not the tipe of clientele I expect a fine dining restaurant to attract. And the non-action unfortunately will result in us not willing to return. Hopefully there will be some learnings from thisMore

Location if this spot is breathtaking with a table outside on a perfect evening. Beautiful trees on this property and a full restaurant. Service is slow however good taking attention to details. Wine list is reasonable with a good choice of food offering especially the...venison. Great evening vibe and lovely to have visited.More
