Was really looking forward to going here as the vegetarian and vegan options were great for my friend I was with. However, my Thai fish cake burger was cold and had to send it back. My friend was half way through her food by the time I got my food back. Then waited ages for our bill, felt like we... More

I haven't visited Royale in a few years, but was in the area and decided to pop in. The burgers are tasty and generous, the sweet potato chips are a tad oily/soggy (my only complaint) A great place to go for a pre-drinking meal as it's right in the heart of Cape Town central. Their Penny Royale cocktail is Devine,... More

Solid burger, very nice and for the price good value. Huge selection to satisfy anyone's tastes. My girlfriend got a salad she really enjoyed so not only burgers. The restaurant is also supposed to do good pizzas but this is in the downstairs only.

Located along Long Street, this place is a pleasant place with an excellent staff. The downstairs is casual with pizza. Upstairs is more traditional. The burgers is OK, truly nothing special. The sides are fine too.it is nice to sit and watch people walk by on the street. Not worth a special trip unless you are looking for something fast... More

After having lunch somewhere else, we decided to grab desert/milkshakes at Royale. The milkshakes are incredible and they are available for takeaway.

We came here on our last night in Cape Town and we were note disappointed. Everyone raves about the burgers, and we have had our fare share of good burgers, but this place ranks right up there at the top! To top it off they had some good local craft beers! Highly Recommended burger spot!

I love the place, the ambiance is nice and the service quite fast. There is a large choice of burger, from the classic cheese and beef to some more sophisticated using spices and ingredient around the world. For those who don't like the beef, there is others tasty options as lamp, chicken, ostrich, fish and even vegetarian. My favorite one... More
