I have given this 3 star because it is based on my dish and also my husbands meal, had it have been based on my dish alone it would have just given it 1 star. My husband had fish of the day which he said was very nice but over priced for the portion size. I had the seafood curry,... More

I have frequented Old Austria on numerous occasions for many years. The experience still delights. Excellent attentive service; the owner is always present, making diners feel special. The cuisine is constantly outstanding. Another plus is the pianist who provides background music to an elegant setting. I have brought family from other provinces to this gem and all have raved about... More

I have recentky been this restaurant and at the unhurried simplicity of style and mouth watering dishes.The old manse of the church across the road provides a novel approach.The food is well prepared and presented.A wide variety makes decisions rather difficult. The wine cellar is well stocked and waiting for you to experience the latest viticulture from the Western Cape.... More

Took friends out for a celebration on concluding the sale of our property. The service was quietly efficient and excellent. We enjoyed the ambiance created by the piano playing melodies in the background. To top it all the food was delicious.

The experience at this restaurant was without a doubt unique. From the lighting to the tables and the entire atmosphere. With a pianist setting the scene, I felt the lighting was a bit too bright, similar to home-like lighting. I can say the food was interesting to taste and certainly presented a flavour I had never experienced before. The meal... More

I sneak into Old Austria after fetching my five year old from school for one particular meal on the menu. The liver, onion and vegetables. This is the best liver I have ever tasted since my mom passed away. Hers was the best before this. The restaurant is very reasonable with its prices and the food tastes like heart warming... More

A nice old style restaurant with slightly dated features. Staff were helpful but looked quite scruffy with trainers and t shirts which was odd. The food was nice but nothing special.
