Simply superb! Best breakfast in Cape Town without question. Even better is breakfast is served all day! Visited 3 days in a row and tried the chefs, Banting and eggs Benedict. All delicious, but eggs Benedict the hero.

Had a good meal without a reservation. My husband enjoyed hugs steak and I had the warthog ribs which were delicious. The ambience is not great but it's very good value and the food very good.

Had delicious lunch here with my family. A meal to please each one of us, food was brilliant. Service was just as good. I even managed to have an early yummy vodka martini. The restaurant is very reasonably priced and worth a visit!

Was staying in a nearby hotel, and searched TripAdvisor for highly rated restaurants within walking distance. Arnold's didn't disappoint. Great food (I had the game platter... sorry Pumbaa), and drinks we cheap. Highly recommended.
