My favourite wood oven pizzas are served here.

Meals are reasonably priced. You can order anything from a pizza to tasty pasta dishes to a delicious steak.

Visiting Arkenstone with 8 friends turned out to be a humiliating experience for me as I invited my friends to this restaurant. Restaurant was overbooked and the kitchen was unable to supply in the demand. Waited just over two hours for our food. Restaurant was so full that guests were unable to pass through different tables to their own table.... More

The service might sometimes be slow, but the super thin-crust pizzas will have you coming back here time and again. But let's not forget the delicious starters with my favourites being mussels in white wine and cheese sauce or escargot in garlic and blue cheese. I am now getting so lis for food, Cheers, I'm off to Arkenstone, see you... More

Very basic restaurant. Offers many specials eg on a Monday 2 Pizzas for R100 . Nice toppings and pleasant staff. Service is slow and the whole place looks tired and not sparkling . But if you want an inexpensive place to visit and have a conversation - this is it . Centrally situated

Delicious pizzas, friendly staff, reasonable prices. Would like to see the pool clean for summer time so the kids can play in the pool while we eat.

Nothing like getting your favorite pizza at (pretty much) half price! Always a great vibe, live music and awesome ambiance! 2 Pizza's for R100 every Monday! I would suggest booking and ordering early as it's quite a popular night (go figure) :) give it a try, you will definitely make it a regular visit on your monthly calendar!

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 back to SA from the UK and it... More

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...
