We ordered the African game platter and were not disappointed. There were 4 different pieces of meat wich were cooked amazing. The fries and salad could have been a bit more.

We were looking for a perfect breakfast spot on a rainy Cape Town morning. What joy to order breakfast at Arnold's. I had their scrumptious french toast with peach, ginger and mascarpone and my wife ordered the eggs benedict. Our 10 year old just loooved his omelette. See you guys again@

If you want a cheap breakfast at 06:45 - 07:00 then Arnold's is a great place. The coffee is not great but was also not bad. Service is fast and friendly and the eggs Benedict is delicious... this was my R23 breakfast, bargain!

Wow !! I was blown away by your Sublime Tuna Tartar last weekend. The fish was fresh and flavorful and the presentation was so aesthetically pleasing. Congrats on the amazing addition to the menu guys I will 100% be back to try it again. #TunaTartar #ArnoldsOnKloof

Fair at best. Great outdoor table and very good service. Menu just so. Needs an overhaul. Old school concepts with little effort paid to sides. We were here 3 years back the place has lost its mojo. Pity.

My wife and I had breakfast at Arnolds Res. Quick service and good atmosphere. Always a struggle to find parking in Kloof Str. But good places to hang out and eat something. I'd like to try the dinner menu. The options look good and so too the prices.
