One of the more upmarket eateries around in town. A really great dining experience backed up by a great kitchen and front of house team. I like a restaurant that doesn't try to be too pretentious - it's fancy food done for the layman...nothing too...More

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

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.
