I recently ate dinner at Royale and was super impressed with the Marino lamb burger. It was cooked to perfection, high quality ingredients and sides. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The dining experience was great.

To date, number one in a world wide search for a great burger ( beef) that was my husband. Not being a great burger fan I had the ostrich burger - and LOVED it. Second visit however, I had the lamb burger, a bit disappointing (after ostrich burger). Definitely worth the little extra walk to get to.

The menu is extensive and creative, the service warm and attentive, and the only thing that kept me from giving Royale 5 stars was the noise. It was impossible to hear each other across the table, and it wasn't even full. They didn't have any fish as I would have liked to try the Thai fish or salmon. All in... More

Was really looking forward to going here as the vegetarian and vegan options were great for my friend I was with. However, my Thai fish cake burger was cold and had to send it back. My friend was half way through her food by the time I got my food back. Then waited ages for our bill, felt like we... More

I haven't visited Royale in a few years, but was in the area and decided to pop in. The burgers are tasty and generous, the sweet potato chips are a tad oily/soggy (my only complaint) A great place to go for a pre-drinking meal as it's right in the heart of Cape Town central. Their Penny Royale cocktail is Devine,... More

Solid burger, very nice and for the price good value. Huge selection to satisfy anyone's tastes. My girlfriend got a salad she really enjoyed so not only burgers. The restaurant is also supposed to do good pizzas but this is in the downstairs only.

Their staff are college students who re so friendly and professional. I only eat at this place when I am in cape town. Love... More

Located along Long Street, this place is a pleasant place with an excellent staff. The downstairs is casual with pizza. Upstairs is more traditional. The burgers is OK, truly nothing special. The sides are fine too.it is nice to sit and watch people walk by on the street. Not worth a special trip unless you are looking for something fast... More

After having lunch somewhere else, we decided to grab desert/milkshakes at Royale. The milkshakes are incredible and they are available for takeaway.
