Lovely food, lovely audience, attentive and friendly staff! The Royal Café turned out to be our meeting point with great people to share some music and enjoy delicious food. If you're looking for a spot with live music in a chilled out atmosphere and with...gooood vibes, you will probably love this place ...More

Despite having written - no smoking, they still allow people to smoke. When we confronted about it, their approach was very casual and told us that everyone smokes, so they allow it. First up, it's illegal for cafes to permit smoking inside premises, secondly not...only it creates unhealthy environment but also makes the place unsafe. Coming to food, it's so so. Go there only if you are comfortable with smokers!More

First thing people are smoking everywhere, inside, outside. You can't even breath. On wall it says no smoking but when you say something to owner he says It's OK, what can I do. So money is the most important thing here. Second thing food is...not so good that you can stay here no matter what happens around. Humus was just like mashed peas with salt. Falafel is very dry. Smoothy bowl was like water with ice. For food I suggest you New lucky Cafe. Food is always fresh and interesting. So if you come to royal Cafe be prepared people smoke everywhere and play instruments they wantMore

I have discovered this café thanks to an Indian friend and I just couldn't stop to go there when I stayed some days in Rishikesh. The staff is lovely, the food is really good and fresh, the pesto pizza is so good, even better than...a lot of pizzas in France! The view is beautiful and the place is really peaceful. I loved my moments there, it is not the cheapest way to eat but I definitely recommend it. Thank you all Royal café!More

So, I was rooming around in the City and find this cafe. Order some cookies and coffee. Music was playing which makes the environment great for enjoying my stay there. Recommend others to visit there.

Having my meals in Royal Cafee become a pleasant routine for me in Rishikesh. Delicious food, great service, stunning views, chill ambience, what more can I ask for. I recommend Royal Breakfast menu in the morning and Lebanese salad for light dinner :) Or anything...else from their menu :)More
