I ordered the Sweet Petunia burger. 160g of pure beef with mushrooms rocket mustard and mayo. Came sizling hot straight off the grill. It was Superb. Ordered the Tiki Tonka cocktail which was mediocore at best (light rum fresh coriander vanila liquer mango pomegranate lime juice and soda). For desert I had the Brownie with Ice Cream and an Espresso.... More

What a treat! The burgers are possibly the best I have had. Ever. The Jack Daniels and Peanut Butter shake will blow your socks off!! Staff is friendly and accommodating, this is a hidden gem if you are looking for a laid back burger joint with a twist.

Broad selection of burgers. The service is very good. I did not like the fries so much as they were quite "oily". Noise level in the restaurant is quite high. Not world class but definitely worth a visit.

It is a wonderful small eatery with a great variety of burgers. The milkshakes are divine and very large. The service was fast and friendly. Great overall experience!! Will return soon.

Royale is definitely the best burger place in Cape Town. It's very popular so make a booking as far in advance as possible! The sweet potato fries are delicious. The many vegetarian and vegan options for burgers rock. Lots of options for carnivores as well, naturally. Huge menu of shakes as well. Service can be slow, but that's because they're... More

This place does hands down the most amazing burgers EVER! I thought the Hard Rock burgers & some we've had in America were good but these were on another level!!! Great choice & amazing milkshakes to go with them & amazing price too. Try the lamb ones. What's not to like people????

Great value for money and food was amazing so we went here twice for dinner. The first night I got pizza and the second night I had the cheddar royal burger with sweet potato fries. The aioli sauce that is used in the burgers is delicious. We also tried the honey comb milk shake which was out of this world.... More

I was looking at places to eat around long street and was told about this place. I am a great fan of burgers and the girlfriend is a great fan of pizza so two birds one stone. We had a 30 minute wait but we grabbed a quick drink in their bar upstairs and then got a text when our... More

A trip to CT without a stop at Royale Eatery is not complete. First of all it is a restaurant and not a fast food. Do not expect to be served within 3 minutes. They have all the burgers you could possibly imagine. Even a good variety of vegetarian options. My favourite : the Big Bird with ostrich meat. The... More

If you are looking for a great burger and a fun/funky atmosphere in Cape Town, this is the place to go. They have every type of burger you could imagine and the service was superb. We ate out on the covered porch. If its chilly out I'd recommend sitting inside, despite the heat lamps it still was a bit cold.... More
