We enjoyed the old fashioned ambience of this place but the food is right up to date. Portions are not over facing and subtle flavours and textures. Good wine list including of course the local offerings. After dinner drinks on the terrace, lovely

This is a lovely, old fashioned restaurant with a large terrace and covered outdoor eating area. Gin & tonics are half price between 5-6 p.m. so relax with a pre-dinner drink on the terrace. We dined on the battered kingklip, fries and minty mushy garden...More

A quiet Monday night dinner turned into a surprisingly great meal. My wife's chicken balatine with a wild mushroom, bacon and pea sauce, accompanied by crispy home-made gnocchi, was world class. My choice of a simple beef fillet and triple cooked fries was elevated to...More

We have been here before but were not able to enjoy to it's full potential. A beautiful building with a Colonial feel. Really good Gin and Tonic with fresh berries. The Pork Belly was delicious and the Oysters really fresh. Highly recommended even if you...More

Simplicity, imagination and quality of produce are key at The Royal. Head chef Francois du Toit (La Colombe, Manna Epicure) believes that food should be honest. If you say tomato it must taste like tomato, if you say fillet you should get the best our country has to offer. This philosophy together with the use of modern equipment (such as the use of Sous-Vide and Pacojet) results in creative but unpretentious dishes with "taste" as main ingredient.
