What with Covid and no food being served on flights we arrived at OR Tambo very hungry. We had an early lunch at the AIRPORT CRAFT BREWERIES and had the most Devine beef burger. Our waiter Joseph was so professional and his service was so...quick.Hot coffee and delicious food and the restaurant has a convenient smoking area. Ask for Joseph for exceptional service !!More

Well done to waiter Qaphelani’s welcomed late breakfast suggestion! We were enthusiastically and confidently advised to take the Wednesday special of the day! And what a deliciously prepared meal we got! My friend had the calamari and avo burger and I had the same, but...bun less. It was sea fresh, tasty, soft but crispy where necessary and very filling. Not expected where high volume foods are prepared daily on a busy airport! We”ll be back for more flying and more tasties, Qaphelani!More

We had a lovely breakfast and great service from Bassie! Food was excellent! Chicken Mayo on toasted ciabbata and the chips are the best! Loved it the experience.
