We didn't stay at the hotel, but we ate at the restaurant a couple times. Nice, clean facilities; good food. Like most anywhere in Africa though, plan on a wait. If you're able to plan ahead and put in your order ahead of time though, this works better. Not perfect, just better. That's OK; you're on African time. If you're American, that's good, because it forces you to slow down. Once you adjust to the time it takes from the time you order until your food arrives, you'll be pleased. Protea serves good food, has a variety on the menu (off-site, you can choose from chicken or chicken), and prices are reasonable. Can't vouch for the alcoholic drinks, but for nonalcoholic drinks, try the rock shandy. Best I've ever had. As to the menu -- the pizzas were awesome.
