Walked by this restaurant and the great vibe just pulled us in! We had the best mixed grill breakfast ever. Great value for money with both kudu and ostrich fillet cooked to perfection!

We walked in for lunch just looking for a simple toasted sandwich. We were blown over by the burger and bear special and the panini selection. A planned quick meal turned into a lunchtime feast. Service was really good and friendly and the whole place...has a relaxed and casual outlook. Very reasonably priced and most enjoyableMore

Hi Chris. Thank you for your review and your support. Hope to see you again for another unplanned lunch :)

Reviewed 27 May 2020

I've eaten at Arnold's a couple times and I've always been extremely impressed by the high caliber of the food and the extremely reasonable prices. Located in the Cape Bowl, the menu leans toward the heartier side but there's still lighter options such as fish...and salad to suit any appetite. They really excel with game meat and the portions are very large. Best of all, prices are extremely reasonable and service is very good. If you're sitting outside, some of the tables are part of the smoking section so make sure you ask so you get your preference.More

I must admit I don't recall them doing takeaways but there is no harm in asking them or going to their website!
