The Royale

Taste Experience Gauteng

This Cuban-inspired restaurant is a great spot to meet up with friends to let your hair down, or to host your own private party! The building has been cleverly modified and captures the essence old-style Havana with indoor/outdoor seating beneath pressed ceilings and palm trees, surfboards adorning the walls, mojitos flowing and salsa music.

The small menu makes deciding what to eat quick and easy while snacking on a bowl of lightly crisped, spicy potato skins. The most popular dishes include the Cuban sandwich, cauliflower wings, pulled mushroom burger (vegetarian), prawn curry and rump steak. The mouthwatering mojo rubbed pork belly is slow-cooked with orange juice to crisp the skin and is served with home-made coleslaw, and we loved the oxtail pie with a deliciously light crust! And, if you still have space, the decadent rum-laden desserts round off the fun perfectly.
