We had beef stew and garlic mash with a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. It was the special-of-the-day and was unbelievably priced at R125 for a two person serving. We cooled down with the deep fried Bar One dessert. Yummy Bar One filling in a crisp...More

We would recommend Arnold's. We showed up without a reservation and the fit us in. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The food was great and liked by all. Convenient location on Kloof Street. We will go back in 2018!
