Booked Arnolds because it had good reviews and we needed somewhere for Sunday night to walk to - it was close and I just wish we had found it earlier. Lovely restaurant, good service, good value. Will go again next time we're in Cape Town.

Bizarrely, for a restaurant that doesn't look much, the food here was fabulous. We only had snacky stuff but it was excellent. Felt very local, and good atmosphere. Worth a try if you are in the area.

Excellent food, nice outside seating, great view of Table Mountain. Very good value, offering a variety of both snacks and full meals.

Just got a tad hungry so grabbed a table here to try a light lunch as we are out for dinner around 8pm.
What a great little place.
Staff super friendly.
Spotlessly clean.
Shared an ostrich burger and potato wedges lunchtime special and a bottle of perfectly chilled Chenin Blanc.
Absolutely delicious and cost us approx £7.75 in total.
Will definitely return, lovely.

To be honest we really don't understand the reviews here! We just had dinner here and from all the restaurants we have had dinner in Capetown so far this was the worst experience. Maybe we had bad luck but we won't give it a second chance. I summary: staff too hurried, grumpy and no attention for us, camembert as a starter was not hot, burger on a plain bun with nothing else on the side, caprese salad just a salad with almost no mozarella and tasteless! We gave a tip but it was actually not worth it, sorry!
