Cooking Academy: Restaurant Royale
I downloaded this game to my iphone a while back, and I. Can't. STOP!
The thing I love most is how satisfyingly long term this game is. I know all free games are set up the same, but this one does a better job of keeping you occupied for weeks and not feeling like you're going to reach the end prematurely.
My only complaint, and I hope Big Fish does something about this, is that the most expensive, high level table and counters are dumb looking. I want to rise my popularity level but I also want to buy tables and counters that are attractive. The best looking ones are too low level... Please add more tables and counters that are pleasing to the eye and have high level popularity!
I really love this game and I REALLY love how I can plan a strategy that takes me longer to reach the next level, but does not take away the fun at all!

Love....Love....Love this Game!!!!
This game reminds me of the food games on Facebook. I loved those games but didn't like having to beg friends and family for help. I, also, didn't like having to add more people to my friends list in order to play.
This game has a nice amount of challenge. You can play for free. This game has coins and bucks that you use to buy various items. When you run out of bucks, you have to wait until a customer drops one on the table. You can also buy bucks but it costs you real money. There are some dishes that take a long time to cook. The customers get impatient and lower your rating when they complain. They, also, complain when there aren't enough tables for them to eat.
Like the games on Facebook, you had the option of buying money with real money. I never minded doing this because it helps to progress through the game. I always made sure that I budgeted what I bought, so it would last longer. I love this serious but I think this is the best game. I have been looking for something similar to those games I previously mentioned. I look forward to continuing with this game.
Give it a try if you don't mind spending money within the game. Word to the wise, even if you buy bucks within the game, use it wisely. You don't have to spend your bucks on everything. It will last longer if you budget your bucks in order to have a successful game.

I originally didn't like this game on my iPad mini (not sure which version of this it was on my iPad) but reluctantly tried the free version here and so glad that I did! I'm officially addicted to it and play well over 20 times a day. Love this game!

I think this game is so fun. Very similar to the offline games and cooking mama. A good time.

it was good until i ran out of bucks
In this new game you have coins and you have bucks and when you ran out of bucks you can't play anymore or advance more fast and you have to buy more and if you want to play for free is more boring and more slow but the story is goodi like it

The game is great, but felt frustrated by not having him around on my pc, like others of Cooking Academy series. Wonderfull, being participant of Big Fish Game Club for several years and could not buy any game with game credit. I hope to review this attitude!

Great for Free
While this game could be better, I am pretty impressed with how well put-together this game is considering it's free.

Another addictive game!
When I first tried this game I didn't think it would keep me occupied for long as it seemed a little simple... how wrong can you be! I've been playing for a few days now and I am hooked. The aim is to cook dishes and complete goals to earn coins and 'bucks' in order to expand and decorate your restaurant. Simple concept but some of the goals can be difficult to complete which gives the game an element of challenge. Give it a go, you may be pleasantly surprised.

I'm Not Impressed
This is a Free To Play Time Management game based upon a culinary contest. You start out with an empty room and purchase a cutting board, oven, counter and a table and chair set. You receive a task from a customer, find that recipe and follow the steps required. Each recipe gives you a serving count, a Mastery level, a revenu and skill points of various amounts. You play a mini game such as clicking on a knife to chop radishes or clicking and dragging across a set line to slice carrots, there is a time limit to finish or you won't get skill points. Here's the problem, it's just ho hum, there's really nothing exciting to do. If you are into cooking shows and culinary arts you may enjoy this game.
