Very Good Restaurant

We had walked by this dining establishment several times during tours of the town. We selected based on Trip Advisor reviews and were very pleased with the experience.

We came in through a recommendation by our hotel. We ordered a sea fish in salt for one person, and just a simple pasta appetizer for the other person, and were told the fish would take 30 to 45 minutes and that it was about 870 grams big in its current state. The fish and the appetizer came 78 minutes... More

On a recommendation from our concierge at the Schlossberg we ate here. It was a good call, for sure! Started with a salad and bresaola (this was my meat-eater's night). Followed up with one tagliatelle for the wife and my bresaola (more beef)! Both meals were just great, Montepulciano was flowing and all was in harmony. Our server was awesome... More

Yes, the menu is on a chalkboard to highlight the fresh ingredients, and the owner/chef is very helpful, but the pay-off is excellent food. Order wine by the bottle, as the red by the glass is problematic. This is not your typical, Euro Italian joint. Enjoy.

The Hofkeller is a beautiful little restaurant in the heart of Graz. The food is fresh and the menu changes every day. I loved how the bring you the menu hand written with chalk on a chalkboard to emphasize how fresh their food is. The service is excellent and the entire stay was a pleasure!

We had a meal last night and thought it was OK. However they brought out some olives and breads which we didn't order and then this was added on the bill. The meal portions were average.

Remember Walt Disneys Snowwhite and the seven dwarfs? Allthough this is not the black forrest in Germany the way this place feels is like the house of the dwarfs. All dark wood with detailed delicate carvings, stained glass and large beers on draft served by ladies not teenagers. Friendly as everyone in Austria and serving good solid traditional food. Homy...

Really enjoyed our last dinner in Graz by trying this place. We walked over and found out we could make a reservation but they had just one table left, for their opening at 6 pm. This is not a huge restaurant and there is only one menu. "The" menu is on standing chalkboards that show today's choices (in German, but... More

Suggest you book this restaurant should you wish to sit outside. Due to its popularity, it gets busy and outdoor tables are generally reserved in advance. Hofkeller did not disappoint with freshly prepared Italian food, great service by a knowledgable waiter who thorougly understood the menu and wines. Had a main and entreee that was served in a timely manner,... More
