We had springbok carpaccio as well as calimari with a vanilla sauce for starters (two separate starters), and for mains a salmon penne and a macaroni "cake" with bacon. The salmon penne was good, but the sauce overpowered the salmon, and there was not quite enough salmon. It was also oversalted. As a result, the pasta and salmon tasted almost identical ... not good. The macaroni cake consisted of two slices of macaroni pie, with thick strips of lean, somewhat sweet bacon on top. The bacon was not super salty, but the macaroni was. The pannacotta/berry dessert was excellent.

The Warehouse is the in-house restaurant at the Protea Hotel Or Tambo. They have very cool aircraft-styled décor and the result is a nice atmosphere. Windows along one side overlook the hotel grounds, with planes visible in the sky as they take off and land at the airport.
I got room service for dinner, which is the same food that they serve in The Warehouse, and it was excellent – a lovely Chicken Linguine that was both very tasty and quite reasonably priced. The breakfast I had the following morning was also very tasty, with a huge range of hot and cold foods available. Overall the quality of the food was excellent.
What was strange was that the breakfast was very expensive, almost twice the price of my dinner. It was also excessive – the spread was excellent, but it was clearly a way for the hotel to trap unsuspecting visitors. My recommendation would be to take the free shuttle to the airport and eat there – even with standard airport overcharging you will find a cheaper meal of a similar standard.
So that was my little gripe over. I was happy with the restaurant and the food was excellent – just watch the bill, and if the buffet breakfast seems too good to be true, that is because it is. Otherwise I would rate the restaurant an excellent 5-stars, but their greed costs them a few points.
