So many options!

With so many burger options, you'll be staring at the menu for the whole night. Royale is a two-storey restaurant that only serves pizza on the one level. This is quite annoying if you're out as a group and you can't fit on the one floor that serves pizza. However, the burgers are great and their... read more

With so many burger options, you'll be staring at the menu for the whole night. Royale is a two-storey restaurant that only serves pizza on the one level. This is quite annoying if you're out as a group and you can't fit on the one floor that serves pizza. However, the burgers are great and their milkshakes are a treat.

Yes, it's true: Their burgers are good. But the burgers are also quite expensive. I suppose its reasonable for good quality beef, fresh condiments and perfectly fried potato wedges. The service could be better. Our waiter was a bit grumpy. These Gourmet burgers are far superior to the ones offered by fast food chains, but sometimes the floppy patties smeared... More

If you feeling like a decent burger this is the place to go. We hadn't been to Royale for about 10 years, and after dinner last night we have been making a big mistake. You can tell you are at a quality burger establishment when they bun they serve you is not toasted but soft and fresh. They have an... More

I always enjoy introducing friends to this restaurant. It has a lovely quirky atmosphere. The staff are relaxed, yet friendly and efficient. The burgers are always amazing and the portion sizes are quite large (great value for money). They have great specials on craft beer - always good to try one or two. But you simply have to try the...

Everything on the menu is delicious, the service is good and the ambience is fantastic! Today they played the new Tame Impala and new Mac Demarco albums back to back. Nice!

We went on a busy Saturday night and the wait was about an hour for 6 of us, but it was worth it! Don't miss out on this great burger joint! Everything we had was amazing.

This burger concept works: great location in buzzy long street, waitresses with tons of pizzazz and a menu that will satisfy all burger cravings possible. There is an impressive choice for vegetarians and vegans and if you further want to silence your guilty conscience you can opt for sweet potato fries or a salad on the side. Definitely not the...

There isn't much you can say about this restaurant other than that they offer some of the best burgers in Cape Town. You will never lose here.

I went with my family and had a great lunch. The burgers were top notch, the shakes were out of this world and the place is a perfect location for a downtown Cape Town meal. Highly recommended.

I've had amazing burgers here on several occasions. Many yummy veggie options - The Casa Nostra (roast veggies etc.) with an Elkington patty (butternut etc.) is an AMAZING choice. The waitress got my order wrong, but was very apologetic. Got a free extra portion of sweet potato fries and my burger was made in record time- probably only about 8... More
