The number one option for me and my family whenever we go out. They have an outside area where you can enjoy your meal whilst watching your kids play, or you could eat inside whislt they have staff watching your kids. The food is excellent and the beef burgers are probably the only propper beef burgers in town! Cheap too!

I usually go to Dros three times a month with friends, beautiful view of the harbour, especially at night. Their Steak and Ribs Combo with salad, is to die for, you should try it. I am still gonna visit Dros restaurant and beer cellar and i advice you to do the same and you will fall inlove.

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
