    I probably go to a restaurant once a week. I've never not given a tip. I've never not given at least 12.5%. This was the first time I've not given a tip. We were the only people in the restaurant yet it took ten minutes for anyone to attend to us. We asked for water every time a waiter came near. We never received water. The starter was guacamole with triangles of flatbread. The former was quite clearly pre-bought. Moving on, the main course menu was not very exciting but I chose the polenta and mushroom. This was €15. I am happy to spend money when the produce is worth it (and had just spent the day on my friend's organic farm easy of Porto and would have spent double this price just on her salad leaves) but the polenta was basically rice pudding with four quarters of a sticky mushroom. We asked for the bill. I won the award for worst restaurant choice which my wife thought was quite funny as I'm very competitive at that sort of thing. I tried to explain to the manager that the restaurant was not to our expectations. She ignored us and pushed the card machine towards me. I explained twice more but the card machine found its way more deeply into my palms. Finally I suggested that her service was not good given we asked for something four times and it never arrived despite being the only customers; that her food was quite a few euros overvalued (I can't imagine less than a 6000% mark up on our polenta main course); and that she was being quite rude given that she was consistently ignoring me trying to discuss her restaurant. She didn't seem to care in the slightest. Café Royale is an embarrassment to the restaurant industry and wherever "The Fork" is will be tarnished my association if it continues to try to market its bookings.

    Café Royale is not the same anymore as it used to be. It was a nice place with a personal touch, occasional menu changes with clearly labeled vegan options. Since it. Became part of a major gastronomy group the food is still delicious and the servie attentive but it missed the many options on the menu as in previous years. Furthermore portions got smaller and more expensive. Still one thnig stayed - nice vine and cocktails menu and the ambient in the backyard is one of the best in Lisbon!

    Haven't been here in years. New staff is a bit slow. Nice outside garden. Food presentation very nice but coming in one by one so we didnt get to eat together.

    Food was okay in taste but service was slow. Ordered the cod but it was basically only potatoes, but they compensated us with dessert which were good. Overall all okay place

    We had a very nice 4 person diner at Royale Cafe. The service is friendly, the food is good and the bill was appropriate. We had the garden burger, two royale burgers and the prego royale. The garden burger, veggie, was our favourite. The royale burger is quite rare, so mainly for raw-meat lovers, which we are. The prego royale consist of some decent sized peaces of sirloin meat on a ciabatta bun, not the best we ever had, but a proper meal anyways. We had three different desserts, cake royale, panna cotta and crumble, of which the latter was our favourite. Meals priced around 12 euro and dessert at roughly 5, we found the quality matching the prices. We would recommend to ask for a table in the backyard patio. Nice and quite, cosy atmosphere there.

    Good restaurant with original and well made dishes. Good price for the service. Adequate wine list for the restaurant, but could have more choice. Good location for anyone wishing to visit Bairro-Alto. Good service as well.
