We keep going back

We've eaten here once and gotten takeways twice. Awesome pizzas! Quite possibly the best in PE. Great atmosphere; live music on a Monday when we went there last. And good service; staff very friendly and attentive as we have a little boy. Can't fault this little gem in PE. We've recently relocated... read more

Thye Arkenstone is still open and has the best pizzas in Port Elizabeth, as well as a range of other great food, and a really nice setting and service

We visited this restaurant for the first time last night, it was particularly cold in Port Elizabeth but they had a lovely open fire in the restaurant which made the room very cosy. I had the lamb curry which was excellent, it came with rice and a poppodum and sambals and my husband had a fillet steak which he said... More

On a very cold winters evening we went to Arkenstone for dinner with friends - a lovely log fire welcomed us in the dining room. The steaks were the best we have eaten in a long time and the presentation excellent. Kelly - our waitress was very pleasant and attentive, albeit her first night! This was our first visit but...

The best Restaurant in Port Elizabeth to have thin based pizza ! Such a good choice of meals to try. Certainly something to suit everyone. Waitresses are friendly and efficient. Owner, John, on site to interact with customers. High quality well presented reasonable priced meals. Thanks for a super evening.

Had a superb pizza this evening at Arkenstone. The best thinnest base wood fired pizza in PE. Friendly waitress and owner on site. I will definitely be visiting this establishment again soon.

A group of around 30 of us arrived at this guest house restaurant accross the road from the Port Elizabeth Golf Course for dinner. They boast a full bar with an excellent wine list. The very friendly and able service ambassadors, with the owner in attendance, made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. They have a comprehensive menu... More

Went for lunch during work - after placing the order for the drinks and pizza, drinks arrived 10 min later, the pizza arrived an 1h15min later. They had to give my lunch to me as a take away - waiting time too long. Please was also empty except for one other couple. Would not go back.
