“Cool place, nice food, service okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

The place is definitly very cool and the atmosphere as well. But for me a bit overrated. The food was good (very good meat and starters as wel fine). But you get the feeling of being in a food factory. As a digestif I ordered a cognac VSOP (14 euro) and it was literraly 1 sip. Would I go there again? probably not... you don't miss anything when you don't...

“Steak!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Grill Royal is a great restaurant for a special occasion due to it's price. My girlfriend found and booked this place for our anniversary as we appreciate a lovely steak and we weren't disappointed. Perfectly cooked with extremely tasty sides. Dessert was really nice and the wine list extensive and expensive but to be expected in an establishment like this.

“All show”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Booked "Grill Royal" as our splurge meal for a weekend in Berlin. Outside a neon sign flashes "Capitalism Kills Love." Inside, we were surrounded by Prada, Chanel, Louboutin...I wonder if the sign is supposed to be ironic. We had a really charming waiter who brought me the wrong appetizer (but was apologetic and sweet). When the correct dish (endive salad with bacon and poached egg) was served, the egg was totally cooked through (poached egg sin!) and the rest of the salad was criminally overdressed. The steaks were quite good, thankfully. When the bill came, both the correct appetizer AND the mistake were present. Again, server was apologetic. It is definitely the place for women to eye one another jealously. Would not return for the food.

“Bad welcome, nice people, good meat, good wine ... bit expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We booked a table for 11 friends on Saturday evening but when we arrived they told us that yes there was a reservation, but canceled the same afternoon ... we never canceled .... it took them about 30min to arrange another table ... and the lady at the 'welcome' desk was cold and did not even apologize for this ....

After this bad start everything went good .... we ordered several first courses (calamares are excellent) and the meet (argentinian beed, excellent) .... and found some good price/quality wines on the wine list

A lot of nice people (ladies and gents) in this restaurant .... Service by a waiter called Karim was good and friendly.

A bit expensive but woth it if you like 'chic' places and are between 25 and 45 years of age

“Good food but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Location is nice, it is just a pity that there are walls that covers the scene over the river.
Food is good but expencive... I actually do not think that it is ballanced.
The waitor recommended a red wine that was expensive... and increadbly good so staff definitly has the know how.
God place to impress someone as the resturant in it self is nice
