This place was recommended by a friend who raves about their burgers. Our burger patties were a blend of chorizo and beef. Very interesting combinations. The burgers were okay, better than some other establishments but not the best. Service was great though and their milkshakes were amazing. We would probably go back again.

Never disappoints! I tried the lamb burger with mint sauce this time - amazing! My favorite one to date and I have been eating there for 10 years since I was a student. A cool atmosphere and consistently good over the last 10 years - go! Oh, and go for sweet potato fries. Too good!

This is a seriously popular place. On two previous occasions, we tried to get a seat without making a reservation to find that it was full and there was a 30-minute wait. We weren't concerned - we just ate down the road and determined to arrive a little earlier the next time. It was worth the wait! There is a... More

Visited Royale with friends and I did not have a good experience. I was particularly appalled by the behaviour of our waitress who refused to believe that there was a page missing from the menu. She just insisted that the options upstairs were different, but I knew that there was supposed to a page there after comparing with friends sitting... More

My and my boyfriend went to royal eatery for a burger and we loved it! Delicious south african meat matches perfect with burger bun. It was our best burger even! The place is cosy and the beer is tasty! Do not leave Cape Town without eating there.

I had an ostrich burger with fries and it was so delicious. Did not make a note of what I paid however, I know it was not very expensive. One couple had a pizza and they thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was very good. Doesn't look like much from the outside so it was a pleasant surprise.

Royale Eatery used to be my favorite restaurant in Cape Town until December 2014 when management published the 'new menus' with a huge price increase. Large shake was 45r, now 60r. Many burgers are more expensive as well. Unfortunately, my favorite restaurant in Cape Town no longer offers a competitive value. This ill-advised price increase will cause Royale Eatery its...

Hi David, We do agree with you. As a restaurant the last thing we want is to have to increase any of our prices, and we held out on doing so for as long as we possibly could. This was our first price increase since May 2013, while every single one of our suppliers had put their prices up multiple... More

This place didn't quite live up to the expectations we had! Meat was dry, cold and well done. Salat without dressing and not very crispy, partly with brown leaves. The white wine was warm, but the beer good and local. Unfortunately I can't call the burgers the best in town. The atmosphere is funny, nice decoration, cute waitresses.

Okay fairly basic but trendy atmosphere. Service is excellent. If you like Gourmet burgers and gourmet pizzas.......this is DEFINITELY the place for you. I ordered the burger that the waitress recommended and was delighted. In fact I also asked what the guy across the table from me was eating and he said the same thing, lol, and he was also... More
