Luckily for us we passed this on the way to Union Square as couldnt find anywhere that tickled our fancy on Union Street. Atmosphere was nice and chilled. A great selection on the menu, apart from there were no steaks. Proper pub food that tasted really really good, not your normal cheap ingredients. I had chicken pie, asked for more... More

Six of us ladies in our 50s/60s were having a day out in Aberdeen to cheer up a friend and we couldn't agree on where to go for lunch as we all have very different food ideas. The friend suggested the Cafe Royal and, since it was a favourite of hers and none of the rest of us had ever... More

Staff very friendly & welcoming, soon as we weren't in we were greeted by the welcoming staff, the waitress made sure we were comfortable & the food was okay, she even gave samples of the soup for starter as some of the table weren't sure if they would like it or not.

When we fancy a good old fashioned bar supper, we always choose Cafe Royal. We have never been disappointed with our meal here and love the fact the that the vegetables and potatoes come in separate serving dishes and are plentiful. One of us always chooses chips and the other potatoes so we can share. Our favorites are the beef... More
