We went here for dinner. Very large choice of innovative burgers, many choices for vegetarians as well. Great cocktails and central location. Really nice young atmosphere.

You wouldn't guess, but this is one of the best places for a vegetarian meal in Cape Town. They have every imaginable burger combo, including plenty that are beef- or entirely meat-free. Shakes to die for, chips greasy, thin-cut and delicious. Long Street vibe and hipster waitresses (their hair is sponsored by Scar, I think!). Somewhat surprisingly, you often need... More

Good burgers, hipster atmosphere, shakes full of shame, excellent service, a great place to have a hamburger on Long Street. Be warned though: we made a faux-pas by eating our burgers... with our hands which is what most people do everywhere in the world. Everyone else was using cutlery and we had some weird looks from other patrons. So either... More

This place was highly recommended and it did not disappoint. Order the Kobe beef burger and lick your fingers. There is a daily special before 5pm not to be missed.

So you can't fault the service, location, ambience or friendly staff but the food wasn't great. The veggie burger and fries were not hot, warm at best and considering we were some of the first customers of the day I wander how fresh the food was. The veggie burger was very messy and fell apart into a mass of soya... More

In this given restaurant I have had the best burgers in my life, from "Sweet Petunia", to the "El Burro" not to mention others. The burgers always exceed my expectation. Never boring. The milkshakes are amazing and very creamy, but the thick straw may help you pull up the great flavors available. The Lindt Chocolate brownie dessert is a must... More

Everyone talks about this place as if the burgers will change your life. So obviously I expected it to be above average to say the least. My burgers that I make at home are better than royals burgers lol. Spurs guacamole with bacon/Macon is better than royals burgers and isn't over priced. The meat patty at royal doesn't taste like...

The burgers here are sumptuous, but they go cheap on the fries. If they're going for a big meal, they shouldn't stop at the burger. After my (hilariously small) citrus cocktail, I ordered water. Our waiter brought it in a small glass (I'm guessing max. 200ml) and I finished the water in about 10 seconds. When I asked for more... More
