We ate here a few times, lunch and two dinners. The food is near to fine dining at mid-range prices, and the drinks are good value. Steaks of all types and ribs are great. The only down side is they don't do a T-bone, but the fillet is excellent; and so are the sweets. The service is excellent, with great staff.

We walked in on the spot. Great choice. Great food, good service, good price. Loved the Kudu loin. What do you want more?

After a very disappointing experience in a nearby restaurant on the night before we followed local advise and were not disappointed. The dinner as well as the service at Arnolds were excellent. My wife had seafood dishes as starter and for the main, which she was both very happy with, while I had game for starter (slices of ostrich filet) and the main (various african game platter), both dishes outstanding. The desert was very fine as was the coffee. We also got excellent advise on the wine to accompany the meal. We happily recommend this place for a great meal at affordable prices.

Loved the food and wine. It isn't fancy but the food was awesome. The staff was cheerful and attentive and both of us had terrific meals. If only we had heard of the restaurant the first night we were in town. There are so many things on the menu we'd have loved to try.

This is a little off the beaten track and full of locals as well as travelers. Good menu options including game and local fish, I think they are renowned locally for their Game. Very noisy on a Saturday night but we enjoyed our evening.
