Arnolds Restaurant Inside

About Us

Arnolds has won more friends than any other restaurant in Cape Town and enjoys wide acclaim for its stunning breakfast. Founded in 1998 and located opposite the historic Mount Nelson Hotel, in Kloof Street, Arnolds has an outdoor seating area with magnificent views of Table Mountain as well as a warm, well-lit and romantic dining area.

Arnold Bettendorf has been in the Hospitality industry for the last 42 years, he started working in the restaurant business from the age of 14.

He did his apprenticeship in some of the best hotels in Germany. He worked in Berlin and top hotels in London. He opened the Wild Coast Sun Casino and was responsible for the Food and Beverage operation there for 4 years.

Arnold has been operating his own restaurants successfully for the last 29 years in Johannesburg and Cape Town. He enjoys dealing with customers in a relaxed but professional manner, and is known for stocking good quality, well matured wines.

On weekends, Arnolds arguably saves more lives than hospitals, serving good value and cheerful breakfasts from early in the morning until 5pm. At Arnolds nothing is a problem; just don't run away without paying the bill. Just pulling your leg.

Since May 2014, Chef Carole, has consolidated the Arnold's menu and continues to create consistently good food. We are under the constant guidance of chef Yomar Monsalves, a 2 Michelin Star chef, born in Venezuela and he has spent many of his professional years in France and Germany. Carole is ably supported by her 2 Sous Chefs Fiki and Mirriam, both have been with Arnold for almost 15 years.

Fantastic lunch specials are served from 11am and there are always interesting dinner specials. Off the a la carte menu, the Fillet Steak on Mushroom and the Game Platter are signature dishes. Arnolds has created a Gemsbok "Wellington" steak, marvellous!

There is also a nice variety of game dishes, with shadows of Ernest Hemingway himself to be found delivering the daily catch. And the crocodile ribs always peak curiosity in true Helmut Newton style.

Then again, Arnold's also produces some of the most delicious desserts in town. Come and check the Cake display: The Cheesecakes, both plain and Bar One topped ones are an absolute hit.

Be sure to catch the daily happy hour from 4.30pm to 6.30pm when drinks are at special prices.

Your hosts Ben, Jason, Zack and Arnold wish you a warm welcome to Arnolds.

Enjoy the experience!
