We had a very pleasant meal here served by very attentive staff. Very quaint dining room in the hotel. Would have been great to site in the terrace in summer.

We were very impressed with the delicious food and great attentive service. Wonderful cosy spot for dinner or drinks with a genuine historical feel. We could not get enough of the Stilton salad and Malay lamb which are a must! Highly recommended

Fabulous Gins on patio during happy hour. A must for any visitor to Riebeek Kasteel. Huge Gin selection but we stayed with local Western Cape produced Gin.

A beautiful colonial Hotel. Built in 1862, it still retains the elegance of that era. The hotel overlooks one of the small quaint streets and is perfect for a G and T at sunset. They have 24 varieties of gin!

I have had pork belly at many places but this one was absolutely fantastic! Definitely one of the better places to dine out in this area.

Description
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.
