The food was amazing - the quolity outstanding and freshness was wonderful, the taste was out of this world and the value for money was amazing. R148 for 4 courses Just cannot beat that.

We went for supper and everything was extremely nice and very friendly waiters. My steak was a bit underdone, but rather under than over.

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.
