I was booked somewhere else but decided that evening I must eat out. There's enough parking and seating space.Friendly staff and management readily available for customers. Wanted something light and ordered chicken salad, and just nearby saw some lady presented with avo and shrimps. Started salivating and decided to change my order. It took the manager just a minute to... More

Our group of four business colleagues chose the Dros for convenience as we were all staying at the Town Lodge next door. We should have travelled, however, as our meals took almost an hour to prepare, and when received, ranged from average to poor. Their chicken salads were particularly poor, while the beef burger and steak were average at best.... More

Most restaurants seemed to be closed on Sunday evening nearby, so we ended up here on our first night in Pretoria. Joseph, our waiter, was very helpful, attentive and friendly. We had starters and mains (mainly all kind of beef/steaks). It is great value for money, easy to park and both non-smoking and smoking areas. We preferred the non-smoking area... More

There is something about this Dros that makes it stand out compared to other restaurants in this chain that we dined at. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, service is friendly and our food was well prepared.

We visit occasionally with friends. Although sometimes the food is disappointing, the pensioner menu is relatively good. It is quiet, which is a bonus for elderly and often hard of hearing customersr

Early Morning Business Breakfast - With a meeting ahead the Dros traditional breakfast was just "what the doctor had ordered" and we could even enjoy our meeting whilst having breakfast.

We stayed at the Town Lodge as we had visited a friend the day before, and were heading back to Malelane the next day. We saw the Dros as we left the Town Lodge so thought we'd have a nice breakfast before heading home.... ugh.... The coffees took forever, we ordered breakfast, I asked for a portion of baked beans...

Convenient if you stay at the Town Lodge but food not great, coffee mediocre and service leaves a lot to be desired Limited vegetarian options and pizzas average at best. Loud music makes it unsuitable for a romantic meal

The first visit was great. Our second visit became our last visit. Armed with a Groupon we expected to get good affordable food but we were shocked to find that what they advertise was not available. After more than an hour and a half of waiting, with our anxious kids, I got a half burnt steak in my plate. It... More

We went there as a family. I immediately loved the decor inside, it looked cozy and I was really impressed with the food. It was also very big portions and the food quality was excellent. Thank you
