My family and I received great professional service, the Dros have a lovely ambience. The meals were top class and great view of the Harbour

But bad really. Bit great either. Big buzz (or I should rather say noise). Great space. Good views of the harbour. The food is okayish. Not bad for kids. Location good because it's surrounded by many options.

We went to the Dros with a large group for breakfast. We were there at 07:45 and they had already set up and cleaned. The breakfast was set up buffet style and all the staff were very polite and friendly.

The Dros In Richards Bay is my GO TO restaurant for family dining it has a very relaxed atmosphere. It has a nice view of yachts and watching and hearing the tugs move in and out the harbour is pretty cool. Saturday afternoons are not the best for family but is a good place for a cold beer and sport.... More

I would rate this place as excellent were it not for the indifferent staff. People skills in the service industry were at a minimum, the location wonderful and the Chicken and Beef Quesadillas were tops. A smile and a happy waitron makes all the difference.

The waitress said that the kids could make pizza, but I thought it would take several hours to get the oven up to cooking temperature so we ordered off the menu. The... More
