Another very popular spot on Kloof Street, Arnold's with its signature orange A is a busy but viby and activity-filled lunch spot nestled in the heart of Kloof Street. Great food and service

We went on 1/1 evening and there was a limited menu and it was packed. We had rapidly our food and it was good portion at reasonable prices. Only the house wine was not good

The staff was very helpful during the dinner and the meals were excellently prepared. It was such a great experience that we visited it twice over four nights. 10/10

A long wait for really boring food! I ordered the pesto gnocchi and had to wait almost an hour. The spring roll starter was no so tasteful.

We visited Arnold's Restaurant on a Friday night when it was a pleasant evening and most patrons sat outside. We sat inside next to the window with the main door open behind me and the side door closed.

This was my first visit to Arnold's but was looking for a place with great choices to offer my overseas guests. I wanted something better than what Long Street had to offer. I wasn't disappointed. The menu covers all the things tourists love to sample when visiting SA.
