Still a nice restaurant, a good meal and just a chill out time with friends and family especially on a good day with good weather. Busy atmosfer

We stopped at Dros for a quick lunch. What a mistake. Our food was terrible , cold and tasteless. The service slow and unfriendly. One surely will get a better meal at the fast food outlet across the road. Avoid at all costs.

After waiting on our food for over 45 minutes, the food came out uncooked and very nasty looking. Two people in our party got extremely bad food poisoning and two others had very bad diarrhea. The place looked promising, but it was absolutely terrible! Avoid at all cost!!!

By far the worst experience in Stellenbosch. The coffee was old and reheated. We ordered breakfast and the waiter told us we have to wait 5mins before she can put in the order because the kitchen was not ready... the 5 mins turned into 1 and a half hour. We complained and the waiter said the food is coming. After... More

After a drive out to Franschoek, we headed off to the Dros in Stellenbosch in the hope to enjoy a late Sunday lunch. The toilet was dirty and smelly. There was no handwash and the dryer was out of order. The glass was cracked, the pizza dough was soggy, the chicken livers were vinegary and raw. My son and I... More

Our guide took the group there. I cannot think why. Although the board outside said pasta there was none on the menu. I had chicken which came covered in that thick horrible cheap cheese. Not one enjoyed their meal and two were not served till the rest had eaten, I cannot think of anything good to say about this.

Hubby and I decided to stop here for lunch. We both had burgers. They were fresh and tasty and the service was good. We sat outside which was nice. Absolutely love the views!

Very much an average steakhouse. You know what to expect from the menu and the food when you sit down. The food was simple and well prepared, and reasonably priced. Our waitron made a number of basic mistakes and requires a lot more training. The manager did come to our table , which seems to be a first ( see... More

Being there in the past, it was the obvious choice to have lunch. What a disappointment. First impression today was a disaster. Staff having their meals in the main dining area. The so-called waitress was more of an ordertaker than anything else. Steak was cold and the extras not on the plate. Overall a bad experience. They will not see... More
