About us


Old Austria offers an excellent selection of seafood, steaks, and Continental dishes. Come and experience our intimate atmosphere, characteristic charm, live background music and delicious food.

The restaurant was originally started by Robert and Leena Wolf in 1972, and the name ‘Old Austria’ is derived from the first Austrian hotel Robert worked at. To date, Old Austria is the longest running restaurant in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) and the owner relationship continues with the new owners, the Bormans (Rupert and Esteleen), the Rayners and the Wolfs.
