Owner's description

The understated décor creates a relaxed ambience where anyone will feel welcome to enjoy a good meal with friends or family. The bistro-style menu focuses on clean simple flavours; the aim is not to overcomplicate dishes, but focus on classic combinations and pairings with great South African wines. The small chalkboard menu gives owners Neil Swart and Johan Toerien the opportunity to source fresh local produce to create quality dishes. Chef Neil Swart truly believes that less is more when it comes to creating a good dish.

    The big question is whether the exceptional food makes up for the atrocious service? Not at all prepared for load shedding, made the ambience something to be desired.
    Great place
    Had dinner at Arugula. The calamari chouriço gnocchi starter was delicious. For mains we had the steak and beer battered fish. Consistently great. The ice cream (flavours change periodically) is made on premises and is a must! The coffee is also great. The waitstaff are really friendly and the restaurant has a lovely dinner vibe. When visiting during the day, be sure to take home one of the best ciabattas available around here. The scones (tea time treat ) are also delicious with no trace of bicarbonate aftertaste you so often find.
    I have mixed feelings about our dinner at Arugula. Although the food was great, the extraction is not good in the restaurant and because the restaurant is open plan felt like it was quite "smokey" inside. The service was not great, the waitress was not knowledgeable on the menu at all. Not sure if we will be back soon.
    Friendly place with great food! Homemade things to thrill the taste buds. And they're steak is great but then again also the porkbelly...
