I had a business dinner there and after a relatively bad experience the previous time I was not very keen to go. I was actually very impressed with the much improved service and really superb food (new owners?)

We went to the Dros Randburg for a family lunch on a Wednesday . The waitress was very friendly, but definitely not properly trained. We had to keep on asking for small things that we needed. The kitchen was extremely slow. 2 waffles took 30 mins to make. The main courses also took extremely long. The fillet was thin and... More

Went to the Dros last night for a family dinner. The food was not very good and the service was poor. One of the side orders never arrived at the table, the good news was that we weren't charged for it! There is far better value elsewhere.

Dirty and broken toilet facilities. No handwash or dryer. If the toilets are like this with a no care attitude. Image how they operate the kitchen?

We ended up at the dros looking for a place to watch the soccer on Saturday and most restaurants were only showing rugby. Started off with only having one type of sav blanc wine available not a good start. Then when we asked the waitress what the linefish was she said it was a very thin fish which looked like... More

Burgers smaller than I remember but taste good. Otherwise not too bad. Place needs some work. Bar is neat and clean. Still one of my favourite haunts

Service was poor and staff seemed totally disinterested. Ordered a pizza and when it hadn't arrived after 40 mins I left.
