Best burger & milkshake!

I went to the Royale Eatery for the first time last month & after my visit I asked myself: how have I not been here before?!! I had an oreo milkshake - so creamy, yummy and generous with the amount of oreos. My burger was the Provincial: a grilled chicken breast with melted brie and cranberry... read more

My boyfriend and I went for burgers after hearing about how great they are. To be honest the service was great! They were super friendly and fast and just very sweet. But we don't know if it was the water they serve as you are seated or if it was the actual burgers ...but both of us got very ill... More

They do great burgers and tend to have them prepared very fast. Good service and food. The place is often packed with locals.

We love coming to Royale, always a treat. The selection of Burgers is FAB and all the burgers on offer are well constructed with an interesting mix of flavour and fun. We love the fact you can chose to have all three types of chips, wedges, sweet potato sides in a mix :) Will be back. Our friends from the... More

I am a regular patron of the Roayle Eatery and its no wonder. The burgers (I normally order the Classic Royale) are the stuff of legends as well as the salad mix and sweet potato fries. The service is impeccable and the ambiance (enhanced by the eclectic music selection and eccentric decor) make for an unforgettable experience. They also offer... More

If you're looking for impressive burgers and rich, creamy milkshakes then this place takes some beating. The kids loved it, and even I tried a small milkshake which was exotic and tasty enough to fix me for the rest of the year! It's popular, with a fast turnaround, which must be good. It's located in a vibey part of the... More

My CT friends say they have the best burgers. They might actually, but I guess I am not a big fan of burgers. It was good, but I was not blown away. Interior design was very very good though

title says most of it. Friendly and pleasant staff, good prices, fun place. Very popular so expect a short wait for a table on Saturday. It's not just the beef that's good. An enjoyable evening always.

I had a Brie Burger with salad and it was absolutely amazing. The flavors of the burger, the brie, sauces and salad complemented each other beautifully.
