A pleasant evening in a warm family orientated restaurant. Not fine dining as advertised but great fare nonethless. Offering was broad and catered for all tastes Service was great All in all, good food, nice atmosphere and hosts who were very hospitable.

Old Townhouse is recommended by anyone in George and they all are absoultely right. They serve simple food but best quality and made with love. Another proof for the excellence is the fact, that most of the guests are locals.

Went on a date in the middle of winter. The restaurant was very warm and cozy. The staff were inviting and knowledgeable. The food was incredible. The homemade ice cream stole the show with their unconventional flavours. Definitely worth a 3 course meal visit.

What a lovely little restaurant just off York street.Nice and cozy, with really friendly staff. The food was devine. Lamb shank is to die for. Portions are generous yet meticulously prepared. Going back as soon as we get a chance.

I couldn't believe my eyes when we found this small and intimate 'Jewel' in George situated in a 1848 historical building! The moment we entered, we felt the cosy 'at home' atmosphere. The service was friendly and the food was very tasty and well prepared....More
