FAQ

Are you open for business?

YES! We have a patio with lots of space to stay physically distant, a 20' x 30' tent to keep your head dry, indoor tables separated by 6' or Plexiglass barriers, and are slingin' takeout food & beverage during regular biz hours.


What are your hours?

Peep our "Hours" page, and follow us @arabellaparkbar for latest updates. 


Are you still doing takeout?

We can do takeout during opening hours, as long as our kitchen isn't too busy with regular service. Give us a call approx. 20-30 minutes before you'd like to pick up your order to see if we can accommodate. You can also order takeout in person - just let our staff know that you're here to take food to go, and they'll point you in the right direction. 


Do you have indoor tables?

We do have indoor seating available. We can accommodate groups of 1-6 people at our indoor tables. Indoor tables have a 2 hour seating limit, just like our patio tables, if there is a waitlist. 
 

Do you take reservations?

Nope, it's first come, first served. If you're wondering whether there is a wait for tables, just give us a call, or check our public waitlist here


How do things work at Arabella?

When you arrive, please take a few moments to read our policies and procedures written on our big blue A-frame signs out front. Our staff will greet you at the entrance, get your contact information (as per Regional contact tracing requirements), and find you a table. There might be a wait for a table - we'll quote you your wait time to the best of our ability. If there's a wait, we'll get you on our digital waitlist, where you can check your status on the list, and receive a text when your table is ready. 
We still operate as bar service only, as always. This means you order your food and drinks at the bar, with lots of room to physically distance. If you order food, it will be delivered to your table. You may start a tab at the bar by leaving a credit card with us. Otherwise, you can pay as you go. 


Do I have to wear a mask?

Since you will be going indoors to order your drinks and food at the bar, YES the Region of Waterloo Face Covering Bylaw applies. For the safety of yourself, our staff, and your fellow Arabella patrons, please bring a mask to wear while indoors, any time that you're not seated at your table. We're all in this together. 


Do you allow minors?

Yes! All ages are welcome on our patio. However, we do not have high chairs or booster seats. 


Can I bring my dog to your patio?

Unfortunately, Ontario Health and Safety laws do not allow dogs on restaurant patios. However, we're totally down with you tying up your doggo on the outside perimeter of our patio. We'll make sure to get you a table next to the fence so you can be near your pup. 


How do I order from your Bottle Shop?

Check out our ever-expanding selection of beer, wine, and cider here. You can purchase in person at the bar during regular hours. As per Ontario law, alcohol purchased to-go must be accompanied by food. 


Where can I park?

There is lots of street parking on Belmont Ave, as well as a parking lot across the street from us (beside Raja).
