The Drostdy is a well-known landmark, not only in Stellenbosch but throughout the whole of South Africa. In April 1996 an enormous change took place at the Dros with the formation of the ‘Dros Concept’, a combination between a wine cellar and a restaurant. The founder and owner, Mr Hein Krugmann, want to present the public with a truly South African concept accessible to all ages and tastes. This concept proved successful as many people from all over the country, as well as overseas visitors, frequented the Dros. This in turn led to the franchising of this unique restaurant. The concept behind the design is to combine Stellenbosch wine cellars with food and a warm ambience using décor unique to the Cape Wine Route, complete with wine cellar characteristics, to create an atmosphere typical to that of a wine cellar. The highly competitive tourist market in the Cape requires food of outstanding quality and excellent service, both of which are major priorities at the Dros. Few companies in the food industry can match the record growth and profitability shown by the Dros since inception. During the past few years the Dros Restaurants gross sales have expanded significantly and net income […]

Quincy’s Café was opened in 1998 to fill a niche in Pietermaritzburg for an upmarket café. It is located conveniently in the Victoria Centre and was immediately popular. The menu concentrated on quality breakfasts and lunches, and although a dinner menu was available, it was set at a much lower key. In 2001 when Quincy’s Café changed hands, we decided to keep everything pretty much the same but increase the emphasis on the dinner trade. A new menu was designed that focused on evening fare, whilst retaining the feel of the daytime menu. All items on the menu are available whenever our kitchen is open, so if you feel like Oxtail or Ribs at 7:30am after a hard night carousing, or maybe a cheese and mushroom omelette after movies and before bed, Quincy’s is geared for it! We do our best to accommodate any special requests you may have and will mix and match our menu to suit where necessary. It is wise to remember that we are not Halaal as we serve breakfasts with bacon and have other pork products prepared in our kitchen. We are fully air-conditioned and have a huge parking area adjacent to the restaurant, and […]
