"Awesome food and service"

We were visiting Graz just for one night and went to eat here. The staff was really nice. Food was excellent and price was reasonable (tapas (for starters) 2€ piece and mains 7-24€, large beer 3,9€). Tapas starters were full of flavour and nicely displayed. We will visit again if ever in Graz. :)

We had a family lunch at the Restaurant Der Steirer. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was excellent and very attentive. There is a separation between smoking and none-smoking, but as we were late we had to use the smoking area and still the smoke was not bothering us. All of us had traditional food (also specialities of... More

Well we have seen all the reviews in TripAdvisor and we have visit this place. Actually, we are writing the review while we are at the restaurant. The Tapas are too small but very good. The main dishes are expensive but AMAZING. we really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, service and design of the place. Definitely worth a visit!

This is our second visit to Der Steirer, we knew coming back to Graz we would have to come here again. Food and service were excellent... Don't fill up to much on the tapas !!

The food is really original, mixing modern trends and typical austrian ingredients, although it´s normally very crowded and the service is sometimes slow (but polite) the plates are a bit overpriced

This reastaurant is not far from the Kunsthaus; I have been here with my boyfriend and friends. We had austrian tapas, goulash with polenta and a red austrian wine. Everything was really good and tipically austrian! Moreover, this is not at all an expensive restaurant and the waiter was polite and fast. The only advice is to book in advance... More

This was the first place where i went 6 years ago when i first visited Graz and became the first place to go whenever i am here. Excellent food (tapas must be tasted at least once) and excellent wine.
