Its dirty, smells stale, terrible food, bad service from dejected/miserable staff, and half the time has no or little choice of draught beer. AVOID AT ALL COSTS...
Why on God's earth Dros in SA have not closed the place down, I don't know. Maybe someone could answer that???

As a former dros gaborone manager 2008-2010, i always had enough trained waitrons on duty,food was well prepared and on time, good mix of patrons-local and expat, only place in gabs you can enjoy a guiness draught str8 from the tap, no out of stocks maybe mussels(its gabs) not capetown....but,it had vibe and atmosphere...wish the current owners would give me a shout and id sort out things for them,i am after all still the only properly dros-sa franchise GM in Botswana...DONT GET A FAST FOOD TRAINED YOUNGSTER TO RUN A MANS ESTABLISHMENT....Training makes the difference.....but.......gabs does now have a mix of restaurants across the divide, new franchises from sa, in very modern,upmarket malls,even the new hotels offer some exquisite dining...and drink....just dont over indulge because the cops will put you in the booze bus.....rating now(09/11/2012) 6.5/10.....

Poor service; More items missing from the menu than were available; Broken windows. Seems poorly managed.

I can only agree with the other reviews, and the most disappointing aspect is that if you visit a Dros in South Africa you well get a more than presentable meal - how can this Dros be so bad?
As a local they are missing out on potential good customers - my friends and I eat out 2/3 times a month and none of us will even entertain this place
