The Bistro at Orange River Cellars is fast becoming a popular social destination in Upington, thanks to its casual vibe, yet it is still homely and welcoming. It is the perfect place for a glorious food and wine experience.
Here’s why you should travel to the Northern Cape:
1.It’s a given that you can enjoy the Northern Cape’s best wines at the ORC Bistro! An array of our award-winning wines such as from our Lyra and Cellar Master (Omstaan and Regopstaan) ranges are on offer and are perfect to pair with any of the dishes.
2. But the ORC Bistro isn’t just about the splendid wines and superb food since you can also get a taste of the Kalahari region’s own unique craft beer. Orange River Wines has partnered with Bushmans Brewing and you’ll find a selection of their exclusive beers on the menu too.
3. Family, friends or colleagues who want to just sit back and relax on a lazy afternoon or early evening, must try the Grootdrink and Kalahari platters. Think cheeses, cured meats, biltong, a variety of dips and other yummy delicacies…
4. The restaurant is also a family-friendly environment and our kids’ menu has four tasty options including a cheeseburger and chicken strips.
5. Though we can recommend any of the dishes on the menu, it is definitely worth dropping in on a Friday for our pork ribs special. For just R120 you not only get 500 grams some of the best BBQ pork ribs in the Kalahari (which is served with chips or a side salad) but a glass of our house wine too.
The ORC Bistro is open from Tuesdays to Saturdays from 11:00 to 18:00, with extended hours every Friday when the kitchen closes at 21:00.
