I had quite an important business supper with a client and took him to this restaurant. Good reception at the door with nicely lit table. The food and ambience was absolutely fantastic with the pianist playing very relaxing music in the background. I can highly recommend this old established restaurant if one would like to impress or take your wife... More

Same old, same old. Menu has been the same for soooo many years. Food only average. And too expensive for what you get. Need to up their game and not rely on their reputation of yesteryear.

Old Austria Restaurant kindly allowed two tired travelers in almost an hour early for dinner and welcomed us with drinks and bread while we waited. The food was fantastic - both times we went. You know you are at a good restaurant when you have to go back one more time before you leave town. Service was excellent and their... More

Been going to Old Austria for 25 years and never been disappointed. The atmosphere is formal but relaxed. There are definitely more exciting eateries than Old Austria, but if you feel like good quality and quantity food with soft piano music in the background, this is the place. Peter, the owner, likes to chat to his guests and the hostesses... More

This is the first time I have reviewed this restaurant although I have dined here often over the years. The menu has not changed in many years but what is on the menu albeit old style is usually very well prepared. The wine list is extensive and caters for everybody's taste. Food on the evening was excellent. There is a... More

Old Austria Restaurant offer a classic dinning experience with live piano music to complete the ambiance. The food is excellent and complemented with a good selection of wines to choose from. The steaks were prepared as requested and the service we experienced was very good. Will definitely visit the restaurant again!!!

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
