On a wet and windy bank holiday Monday we came across the Café Royal. Five of us had lunch here and enjoyed it. Great value for money. Plenty of choice and very handy as it is directly across from the Waterford Crystal building.

Met with a friend for lunch and a young guy invited us in. We had the lunch deal €10 (fresh lemonade + selection of sandwich + 3 side salad option). Fantastic meal. Thanks to all of the staff, I will definitely go back.

Had the lunch special which for €10 you get a cold drink (small bottle of water) an I chose the quiche (small slice) and green salad. Definitely didn't feel like I got value for money, went away a bit disappointed and can't recommend.
