On Monday night my wife and I went to the restaurant to have the pizza special. The manager/waiter Pieter helped us. What an outstanding guy. I think any employer would be happy to have someone like him on their team. He was all over the place helping and assisting. Pizza was great and you will definitely be seeing more of... More

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

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

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!
