Nice and easy service also for those of us not very fluent in French. Lunch is a bit overpriced when it comes to portion size, but everything is very tasty and something you don’t get to eat every day. Within walking distance from central square.

Ate here on the Saturday night of 'La Braderie'. Nice food, pleasant waiting staff, unbelievable atmosphere in the streets. Couldn't really ask for much more.

Have you ever come across Bistronomie cuisine, the perfect balance between the informal bistrot dishes found in French brasseries and the more sophisticated gastronomy cuisine? If not, it might be time to head to La Royale and try for yourself Chefl and Jean-Sébastien's culinary creations. Only fresh products from local markets make it to the menu. Dishes are inventive, simple and creative. The wine list is equally enticing: la Royale favours smaller high-quality producers to big names... Come to La Royale to enjoy high quality cuisine in an intimate atmosphere full of delightful quaint memories. You'll find yourself transported in an old Paris bistrot and will no doubt feel at home...
