I was torn between 3 and 4 star rating and decided to only rate the dinner. The sirloin I had was excellent and cooked to perfection. The advertised 3x baked chips that came with it were slap chips and didn't see the oven three times....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.
