Old austria was my favourite restaurant for a long time, and was always sought after for special occations, my last visit was not so good, chipped crockery, badly dressed watrons and over priced food, old austria needs to pick up their game big time

You wont rave but you wont cry. A formal old fashioned restaurant that serves standard food. The kitchen is slow. There are no surprises but you can get a nice meal and spend a comfortable hour or too. A bit expensive.

A "you cannot go wrong" choice for many years. A bit expensive and a bit too formal to me. Seating is sometimes not good as bigger groups will have a problem to sit together. Food takes a long time to arrive.
