Travelled many years ago to Riebeek for lunch and was hugely disappointed, but now the experience from start to finish was excellent, service little on the slow side but the food was excellent

The stoep at the Royal may still be a great place for lunch, but standards seem to be falling precipitously. Service was slow and lacking any finesse, and both prawns and squid were unavailable, meaning that four of the limited number of dishes on the...menu were also unavailable. And our glasses of chenin blanc were served warm. Not acceptable.More

When you are in the area do not forget to stop and dine in the restaurant of the fabulous The Royal Hotel. You will never forget the friendly people that serves you a really fantastic diner acompanied by the finest wines of the Swartland Revolution.

We had a straightforward and good meal, good service, and the colonnaded veranda is very pleasant to sit on.

Beautiful old venue but definitely lacks management. No atmosphere and lacks life. No toilet paper in the ladies and after going to front desk the issue remained after 30mins.

Was ok.... nothing to write home about at all. Limited menu, no soap in toilets and no hand towels or paper towels. Clear lack of management or care

We have been for both. The only problem with lunch on the weekends I that the road is busy and the pedestrians can be noisy.
