Service is slow like everywhere in South Africa, food is mostly decent but meat gets either under cooked or over cooked , if you want to have something for the kids to do , it's ok.

Been to many of the Dros restaurants in the chain and has always been quite satisfied with the quality, but this one is the pits. Food order had to be taken 3 times, cold on arrival and no gas for draught beer. After the 3de food and drinks order, my son still got a cream soda instead of a coke,... More

Went there twice during our stay in Bela Bela early Jan 2015. Great fun with the cocktails, they were hugh. Had very good steak the one day and the pizza the other day was excellent too.

Service good, staff made you feel welcome, went for the lunchtime buffet, a little basic but good value for the cost.

A short walk from the terrible Elephant Springs Hotel and a complete change in quality. We had an excellent waiter and thoroughly enjoyed our steaks which were cooked exactly as ordered, medium rare. Acceptable glass of red wine and draught beer mad for a good choice.

We went there late on a Sunday on a trip from Zebula to Johannesburg. The food is okay and average, but it was really great to have play areas for childrens (much bigger than the other Dros restaurant I remembered). The staff is really good with our kids, they turned on and helped them on XBox and other gaming devices... More

My wife and I went to have a quick dinner and left feeling very unsatisfied! The service wasn't too bad. The food however was quite frankly shocking. We started of with snails, which is quite easily the worst starter I have ever had. The best way to describe the sauce is a 'gooey floury mess'! For mains I had steak... More

Typical family restaurant - noisy and food average. Cannot say something in particular that would make this a memorable experience but it was not necessarily bad.
