The front stoep at the Royal is still one of the best places for lunch on a summer's day in Riebeek Kasteel, but the hotel is in dire need of a rethink. The restaurant menu seems to have remained unchanged for at least a year. The food we had - a stilton and roquefort salad and goats cheese rolled in sun-dried tomatoes - were pleasant - but it was a case of deja vu and deja mange. Service was efficient but superficial, and the waiter declined to recognize us from a previous stay.
