Good service and food make this a PE staple. I would plan some time here to enjoy the food. The location isn't great, but it's well worth the trip.

This restaurant is situated in a well renovated old home. The decor is tasteful and the pianist who played during dinner a real delight. The food however was a complete let down and way overpriced for what was recieved.

One of our party had a 'traditional beef stew'. The meat resembled a cooked piece of meat one would buy from the local supermarket to put in a sandwich, wafer thin and covered in a rich unappetising sauce. My pea soup was watery and tasteless and the bread presented at the table was stale. We ended the meal with a pavlova which was smothered in tinned caramel.

We dined at many fine restaurants during our stay in Port Elizabeth and can honestly say that The Old Austria was a complete waste of money.

I don't know what's happened to this "old favourite", but standards have really dropped dramatically! From the "silk flowers" on the table and unprofessional staff, to the bland food we were served, this was not a pleasant experience. The only enjoyable aspect was the music!

Lovely warm old world ambiance. Good selection of Continental standards and hearty popular dishes. Good size portions. Enjoyed the Rosti very much as it is seldom prepared in the traditional manner. Great for business lunches as they seldom dissapoint
