Not only the food, the view!

This is a small restaurant on the Schlossberg. Excellent views from above on Graz. The service is nice, the food is OK, however the selection is not too big.

Small cottage on a hill with fantastic views. Menu was limited and slightly pricey but food was presented very tastefully and of great quality. I had the perch which was fresh, flavoursome and cooked to perfection. Great little surprise!

exquisite location of this quirky little cafe. Service only average last time we were there. Still, the view made up for that.

The restaurant is in an impressive location with prices to match which seemed justified earlier in the year but I'm not so sure on my recent return visit. The service was still excellent: helpful, friendly and attentive. I could not have asked for more. The wine selection and matching was superb. A fine selection of Styrian wines which was a... More

The best restaurant after a steep walk to the top of the Schloßberg; excellent view; if you manage to get a table in the garden, you can enjoy wonderful food with a fantastic view of Graz; an afternoon spent there is like a holiday in itself.

Very small restsurant in the Old Hunter house of the ancient castle. The view is just amazing!!! The menù is very short but Quality is really good. Kitchen is open view on table!!! SERVICE is really professional but not really fast When full of people, not indicated When you have limited time. We reccommend it.

The Starke-Häuschen is a nice little place on the Grazer Schlossberg with a large garden and balcony offering a wonderful view all over the city. I never ate there - as the prices are comparatively high - but it's a wonderful place to have a drink and enjoy the view. I specially recommend to go there in early fall when... More

Foreword of warning: after reading other reviews I had very high expectations for the place! It is very well located, but on that specific evening we were relocated inside due to a small rain storm. There are a few windows inside, but (1) we were not seated by one (2) they were extremely small, so we didn't get any of... More

Really a phantastic view while having a drink or eating some food. But you pay for it - even normal tap water is charged (and quite expensive!) Food is nice and well served, quite a good variety of drinks.
