Ate here with a group of ladies at the weekend. We ate a variety of burgers and shared a variety of sides. Absolutely delicious! Comfortable seating, friendly staff and yummy wine! Looking forward to visiting again soon

We arrived in to Arnou at lunchtime in December after a cold walk! We were in a rush and the cafe was busy but we were served by the lovely Naomi who got us four bowls of soup straight away! We were so grateful! Great food , great service and a beautiful view!

Great coffee...I'm a bit of a coffee snob and this coffee was excellent. Friends had scones which were declared delicious...served with jam and cream...reasonable price and free wifi.

I visited Cafe Arnou the morning after the night before. Needless to say, I needed a cure and I needed it quick. I ordered the full Irish, coffee and a berry smoothie!!! The breakfast was top class, freshly made and there was more than enough to satisfy my needs! The coffee was a beautifully balanced blend and was well made.... More

While visiting a holiday home possibly for the summer stopped in quaint town at restaurant. Very small and nice atmosphere. Had the meat feast and it was really good. Hope to visit more in the summer of 2017!

The pina colada and strawberry Daquiri were delightful and potent. It's a small place but nicely decorated bright and comfy. It's mixed purpose serving coffees and burgers also but a good addition to the Arnold's offering.

This is a small cafe bistro near Arnold's Hotel in the popular seaside town of Dunfanaghy. How lucky we were. The food was really top rate. My chicken and bacon salad was absolutely gorgeous and my wife's mussels were the best she has ever had. Its small and easy to miss as you drive thru the town but my wife... More

This little gem of a restaurant has really innovative combinations of delicious food whether you are ordering breakfast, lunch or dinner. The presentation and service is excellent. Staff are always polite and friendly and although there is a very relaxed feel to the place service is fast and efficient. Despite all of this the prices are reasonable and great value.

Called in here by chance and ended up having a great homemade gourmet burger. It's trendy now to actually eat a burger and not feel guilty and with the selection of burgers these guys have on the menu I would have quiet happily gone for any combination Burger. This classy little place focuses on a simple burger menu from 5pm... More
