My fiancé and I went there on the 15th of December 2016. This seems to be the only restaurant open in George after 8pm. The food was lovely. I had lamb shank and fiancé had springbok shank. The food took a bit long but it was worth the wait and our waiter kept us up to date. Unlike some places... More

Five of us enjoyed an impromptu dinner at this well established restaurant. We each had something different and all five meals were declared excellent. Food is cooked with passion and it was good to have real vegetables. We couldn't choose the "winning" dish, but next time I go back I'll have the Shanks. Service good and value for money portions...

We had a wonderful quick lunch at this charming place. Friendly, attentive staff delivering remarkably quick service. We had the best ostrich steak, tender and perfectly cooked! The veggies were also a fantastic addition to the food, completing an altogether wonderful meal. Would definitely recommend, and visit again and again.

The restaurant is situated in an old building with lots of character. The service was good. Good style is more like comfort food. It was well prepared and tasty. The only down side was that the restaurant was quiet and all the patrons were huddled together in one part of the restaurant. Worth a try if you like food from... More

Extremely welcoming. Cosy atmosphere. Food was well presented, from starters to dessert, with a varied menu to suit all tastes. Loved the touch when the chef(owner) calls at the table to give a run down of all the desserts, with homemade ice-cream included to my delight. Service was excellent, with the food arriving promptly. A relaxed evening, good food/wine.

I have never had a bad experience at the Old Townhouse with its magical atmosphere in the downtown area and superbly kept interior as close to original as possible, in addition to the discerningly, delectable food. This place is one of my all-time favorites and I highly recommend their steaks with plentiful veggies and other healthy offerings. Brian and Janet... More

Great place for a celebration. The old townhouse keeps its charm. Food was again excellent ( I had the Kudo Carpaccio and Fillet steak). Family meal in a relaxed but well organised environment. Patron treated us well. Definitely worth a visit.

This restaurant has an amazing atmosphere that is quite hard to achieve in my opinion. It is relaxed, friendly and immediately you feel at home. It is busy but not noisy and the family that run and own this business work really well to create a great vibe. They welcome you more like friends and take time out to chat... More
