Arugula Bistro Opened in March 2012. The restaurant is situated in shop 18 of the Welgemoed forum shopping centre, on the corner of Jip de Jager and Kommisaris street.
The restaurant is owned by chef partners Neil Swart and Anouchka Horn.
The understated décor creates a relaxed ambiance, where anyone will feel welcome to enjoy a great meal with friends or family. The small menu focuses on clean simple flavours. The idea is not to over complicate dishes, but use good ingredients to create simple but delicious food.
Arugula Bistro’s kitchen is situated in the dining room itself. Guests can see exactly what is going on in the kitchen, there is nowhere to hide. We are proud of everything we do in our kitchen.
We kept the interior of the restaurant very clean and simple so there is nothing but the view over the Simonsberg to distract from the food.
We always keep the menu small to ensure that produce if as fresh as possible. We don’t have any large walk in freezers or walk in coolers to store heaps of food. We work hard together with our many suppliers to get fresh produce in every day.
We try to keep the menu interesting. This is not always easy, as our regular guests have grown so fond of many of our dishes that we don’t dare take them off….
