“Amazing Food for Amazing Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

On our recent Honeymoon in Capetown, my husband and I decided to try Arnold's based largely on the Great reviews on Tripadvisor. The reviews could NOT be more accurate! This is a Great little restaurant with Tasty food, good service, and Amazing Views of Table Mountain!

When traveling, my husband and I like to explore different areas and try different types of food. But, we liked Arnold's enough to eat there Twice in our 7 day journey! I highly recommend the Ostrich burger and the fish of the day. The portions are generous and the prices are quite low. I found that the wine selection was not Outstanding, but, for the price, it Worked! Most of all, the staff is Friendly and accomodating.

The location makes Arnold's a nice place to visit during an afternoon Stroll or a late night. I put Arnold's on my Top Five Capetown Restaurants List!

“great food at reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

we were sent to Arnolds by our host. It was very busy, but they found us a table. It as late, so not everything on the menu was available, but there was still plenty of choice. Nice wines as well

Dear SionaJ
Thank you for taking the time to write about us on Tripadvisor. We really appreciate your positive comments. We strive to buy and prepare our food items on a daily basis and keep things fresh, hence it it possible that we are sold out at the end of the night.
However we are glad you managed to find something that you liked and that you enjoyed your time at Arnolds.

“Tastyness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

First meal I had on this trip to CT was at Arnold's. Really impressive. I was dining with just one other friend and colleague who liked the experience too. The food is very well cooked indeed - at least the game platter I had was. Very, very good meat. I can't remember exactly what bit of it it was but one of the bits of meat was quite possibly the most succulent and well cooked bits of meat I've had for a long time. The wine was good. Atmosphere was good. The service friendly and unobtrusive. If you're in CT, and like meat, I would definitely try Arnold's at least once.

“Friendly Vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We had a lovely meal here as a group of about 17. The food was great and the restaurant was very accommodating as some of our group were delayed and arrived quite late. We really enjoyed the friendly, relaxed vibe.
