No rush, food was lovely and well... More

Had a good meal there with an old friend and enjoyed a couple of beers there as well. Waiter was very good helpful and friendly. Food was not too bad and had a good time there, Speed of service could improve but overall I would recommend it.

Didn't have a great time at this restaurant in George. It started very promising with a server Ruan who was very friendly and even went and wrote down directions for us to a local museum we couldn't find. Unfortunately when our orders came (both seafood type platters) mine was the wrong one and neither had chips on. It was suggested... More

Went to Dros in George for the first time one Sunday for lunch. I had a seafood platter and my daughter had a pizza. The food was not as expected. The pizza was cheaply made - cheap ingredients and the base was horrible! The seafood platter was mediocre. Afterwards we weren't even asked if we enjoyed our food - just... More

Ordered a hot chocolate and end up getting one that has almost no flavor. Might as well have just ordered a glass of hot milk.

Great staff and ok atmosphere but what a disappointment. Steak ordered med-rare but arrive well done and tough as leather. Partner ordered ribs which arrived rare and would not come off the bone. Clearly, more attention is required in maturing the meat and someone to take an interest in the kitchen! Wish them well but i will not go back... More
