We got this restaurant recommended by our airbnb and the food was just awesome. I still have to think about my 350g townhouse steak every day ;). The staff is very friendly and attentive. The owner himself came upstairs to see if ervything is fine and even remembered us when he met our airbnb host the day after knowing exactly... More

Don't be put off by the décor - it needs a bit of tidying up! Food & service excellent with a good menu using top quality ingredients. Friendly & relaxed in an interesting old building. Recommended if you enjoy good food.

Extreme tender and tasty beef fillet. Perfectly done medium-rare. Hard to remember that we had anything like this in the past. Our highest recommendation for the beef. As we were told it comes from a farm south of Johannesburg called Karan Beef. And Old Townhouse seems to have a great butcher aside. On top a very attentive and very friendly... More

A friendly, family-run restaurant which serves good food at good prices - what more could you ask for? The steaks were excellent, as was my small-sized schnitzel. And the home made ice cream is delicious. The place is a little tatty but its all part of the charm.

I have spoken to so many people who love this resaurant but all agree we have passed it so many times not realizing it was a restaurant. The food and the service was amazing. Steaks are their forte and so good. Our server was very friendly and happy to help. We ordered gelato for dessert. They make it themselves and... More

We had my mom's 80th birthday at Old Townhouse. From the time I made the booking until the event, I experienced such helpfulness and efficiency. The event itself was far beyond expectation. The food was incredibly good - unanimous agreement was that it was the best food any of us had had in a very long time. So much attention... More

Went here for my husbands birthday. To be honest when we first entered we were a bit sceptical. Carpets are stained and the inside looks a bit run down. But the service was great and very friendly. When our food arrived we were blown away! The most tender perfectly cooked steaks we had in a long time! When the place... More
