So there are not a whole lot of places that cater for vegans, let along a good ol burger joint...well Royal is not like other places. The atmosphere is cool, with little booths on the one side and tables, albeit it a little close to each other...does give a great atmosphere. Now the vegan burgers, they don't hold back, you...

The service was quick, friendly and what I needed on a hungry tummy. Been wanting to go after reading some reviews and my favourite being a burger. The blue cheese burger lacked the blue part and the chips were a bit soggy. Inside nice and cosy but aged and needing some attention. The first place I have been to in... More

Very good milkshake ! Try the avocado mint you will not be disappointed ! I did not try the burgers as I only eat halal and pork is in the menu. The restaurant is very small however.

Great burger joint on Long St, towards the end which connects to Kloof St. Has an extensive burger menu, meat, veg and vegan. And shake drinks menu. Good portion sizes and great value for money. Would certainly recommend for a casual meal, spontaneous choice or just hungry for a solid meal.

The food is good, but who needs food when there are so many milk shake options to choose from. If you're into chocolate don't miss the choc brownie option, but otherwise everything is good. Royale has a great "diner" feel, it's always busy and you'll never go wrong with a shake!

Popped in for lunch today as many people have recommended them. It was even better than we expected. The peanut butter and banana double thick milkshake made my day and the burgers (minus the bun) were delicious and flavourful served with sweet potato chips and creme fresh to dip. What more could you ask for.

A very cool little restaurant on Long Street with an authentic feel. The burgers are awesome - we had the El Burro and it was excellent. The toppings don't overwhelm the amazing taste of the patty and the fries were great as well. The milkshakes are just as good. Service was a bit slow but this is Cape Town.
