Didn't stay there but went in for drinks. Service was great and people were sincere and friendly. Were with our young children so it was a bit difficult but everyone was very helpful. Really enjoyable experience for all of us.

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.
