We has some bruschetta for our lunch. Service was reasonably speedy. Presentation was fine: food looked appetising. Tasted good too. Nothing special but nice lunch.

A good cafe to have breakfast or hot beverages in their terrace area. Located in a good sightseen central square the Royal offers a good varity of hot beverages and dishes at a reasonable price.

Although everything that we ordered was simple, sandwiches or omelettes, it seemed to take quite a while to arrive and not all at... More

Stopped for a light snack and had two 'parma ham' toasted sandwiches and two mineral water. Toast was almost cold and had to ask fo a piece of lemon. Price was, in my opinion, too expensive for what we got....

What a lovely find. An atmospheric and small café which serves cheap, quality food in good-sized portions. The staff were really friendly and we found it to be a relaxing break from sight-seeing. Another one we intend to return to.

Had a coffee, Pepsi, and a couple of burgers. Well presented, friendly and cool. Just the same as before, but now it's got free WiFi, just ask for key... More

The cafe has tables in It Tok where one can enjoy a coffee by day and evening drinks when the market is packed away and... More

Opposite the market, this bar cafe is excellent. It is small, but comfortable with it. There is a wide selection of inexpensive drinks and snacks, and is a welcome stop on the usual tourist trips that stop in Victoria. Free wifi is an added advantage if you must have your daily fix of Internet / Facebook / EMail while you... More
