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.

Had an excellent burger meal,ostrich and beef. Sweet potato fries and onion rings. Truly very good. Worth coming when it isn't breakfast time!

nice, 'democratic' eatery on Kloof Street, been there for ever, its a classic for quick, easy, decent eating any time of the day: nice menu, friendly service ... what is not to like ... but not really to love

Excellent selection, especially game meats, with a nice selection of wines, attentive and friendly service, and good for people watching. Being one of the few good neighborhoods restaurants open on Sunday is an added plus.

On a windy Sunday evening, we took one of the last 2 tables in this busy place. Luckily for those arriving after us, service is very rapid, so being hungry we dispatched our starters and mains less than 45 minutes after arrival. It isn't fine dining but a good place for a standard meal.

12 years later and things are still popping off with a light hearted spirit. Food is as per expectation spot on and quick. Seating is fair and comfortable. Always a fun place to have a quick snack or a chilled lunch
