This restaurant is very much worth a visit. It's very special interior and atmosphere is very much matched by the excellent food and first class professional and accommodating personnel. This is undoubtedly the best 'up market' restaurant in the city, but with prices that are very reasonable. It is also a great spot to stop for a tapas lunch, which offered with a very good selection of quality dishes. Short detour from the main tourist street, located the quiet Plaza Candelaria. Not to be missed.

What a real gem in Cadiz. Everything about the restaurant was perfect. The setting is absolutely beautiful. The Plaza it sits in is lovely. The service was 1st class. The staff were friendly and very professional. The menu and food was excellent. It covers every bodies needs. From a perfect Gin and tonic to a creamy milkshake. Also from a slice of cake and a wonderful dinner. Was the real find of our time in Cadiz. Only found it on our second last day. But enjoyed our last lunch at Cafe Royalty. Would highly recommend and will return if ever again in Cadiz.

Wonderful romantic dinner in a truly romantic setting. We had the menu degustation at only 45 euro and for only 10 euro more enjoyed the full wine accompaniment. The staff were friendly, attentive and very informative.
