The meal was okay could of been slightly more original our food was chip with everything but it is right on the beach. The service was okay a bit casual we waited along time for service.

Ate here twice and enjoyed Calamari, Patatas Brava's and an enormous tasty Prawn Cocktail, on the second occasion shared a mixed Paella, which was delicious and freshly cooked, great views of the bay and beach. it does get busy quickly so book or get there early

We are a large family of seven, with four children between 12 and 5. We did not have a Reservation, and had been turned away from several other Tamariu seafront Restaurants. But the Royal maitre d turned out to be more enterprising, and found spaces that we hadn't seen, and within a few moments a super table for seven was... More

Tried to go to Hotel Tamariu for dinner but they were full. We asked for a recommendation for good paella and the suggestion was The Royal. Good location on the beach. Good paella as well. Others had the sole which was also good. Would visit again.

My sister and i had a few drinks here and it was fine. The food takes a while to come out so we didnt order. We did however eat at Murris Beach Bar down the board walk and that place was delicious and amazing! I would recommend their calamari.

This restaurant is nicely located directly at the beach and it should be evaluated as an informal place where you can have a simple meal after you have enjoyed the sunshine in this lovely environment. Nothing special but fair. Grilled asparagus were good, the paella a bit too greasy but sufficiently filled and really tasteful. Of course these type of... More

Good restaurant ; none of the others had a free table in the sun for 4. Busy beach! The green salad was pretty mediocre with iceberg lettuce and slices of raw onion and tomato. However my husband's grilled tuna was the best he'd had all week . My son's sole was very nicely cooked as well. Good coffee.

Thank Jane W
