“Varied and interesting menu, good customer service”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Had one dinner and several breakfasts during our stay in Cape Town.
For our dinner, partner's beef fillet was fabulous but my Mozambique prawns a bit of a let down with a floury texture. We mentioned it to the staff and the manager took the time to come to our table to apologize, explaining that there had been a recent change of provider. They got took off the bill.
Breakfast was varied enough including lovely fresh fruit options. The only minor problem we had was some confusion with the breakfast vouchers provided by our guest house, The Lions, and whether they included or not hot drinks but I guess this was probably a joint responsibility between them both and will hopefully make it clearer for future guests.

“Good quality, friendly staff, perfect”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Arnolds restaurant is a very good restaurant at Kloof Street in Capetown. You find a selection of local and international food there. Also, breakfast is recommended. The staff is very friendly and helpful. All in all a perfect place to be.

“Chilled out Restuarant”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

A very relaxed restuarant, a great meeting place for freinds and bussiness. the food is great. always go for breakfast and coffee, it is at a great price (Value for money). If want to try the meat platter (Wild game) i would also try Arnolds, it is a must. love the staff.

“High quality food”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

High quality food at an affordable price! Excellent gameplatter and game meat in general.The staff is very observant and provides you with everything you need; food, drinks and information. Normally the food comes quickly at the table, but if there is a delay the staff will inform you! We've been to Arnold's three times the two weeks we've stayd in CT and will definently retur at our next visit in CT.
