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...

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

The burger was juicy, the bun fresh, and the flavors of the toppings complemented the burger rather than distract from it. Toped it off with an English IPA. The menu had a variety of other burgers, sandwiches, and craft beers. I visited at 2pm on a Saturday and the vibe was laid back, the service quick.

I am sad to report that I was slightly disappointed in Royale. To be fair, the service was great and the food was good, it just wasn't as great as I was expecting it to be. I had the ostrich burger and the burger itself was delicious, but I found all of the accompaniments to be to be too overpowering.... More

I visited this establishment after seeing the brilliant reviews. The location is towards the upper end of Long Street. I was immediately impressed by the menu - the actual physical menu - as it is presented in the form of a book. The menu itself is excellently put together and offers a variety of burgers to suit almost any taste.... More

You'll find this pleasant eatery a short walk down Long Street from the City Sightseeing Long Street Tour Office. I enjoyed lunch here on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon following the City Sightseeing downtown walking tour. Service is friendly but unobtrusive. The extensive menu includes several vegetarian patties (soy, tofu, black bean, falafel, etc.), so vegetarians will find plenty to satisfy... More
