We were recommended to eat here by our hotel and really enjoyed the restaurant. The night was warm so we dined al fresco in an area covered by white market umbrellas and lit by many flickering candles so the atmosphere was very romantic. The guests were well dressed locals, there was only one other table of tourists which we thought... More

Best time to go there is between 2pm and 5pm because the staff will have time to pamper you. During the day Jörg is the best staff member and he will make your stay worthwile. Food is of good quality and the winelist is great. In summer you can dine al fresco which is a great experience. When visiting Graz... More

Excellent food, drinks and service. Sometimes needs to make a reservation. Good place to start... Located in the downtown, close to many other bars and restaurants.

We came to Eckstein on recommendation from our friends who used to live in Graz. May be we weren't lucky, or may be Eckstein had had a bad day. Or may the things deteriorated over the years and it has become a tourist trap. So, we did not receive a single smile during our lunch. Staff was polite, but cold... More

We had a good meal here, certainly not the best we've ever had, but also not the worst by any means. The service was really slow, We went on a Tuesday night and it was very crowded and kind of loud. They seated us in a corner by some shrubbery and the water station, so maybe that had something to... More

We both had freshly cooked pasta dishes that were above the usual standard of pasta dish with nice flavours. We each chose to have a dessert and... More

Great service, very polite staff - excellent wine recommendation. Had the risotto with river crays twice - first time perfect, second time the rice too "all dente", and the cray-tails were tiny and tough as rubber - I guess they were "double fried". Beef tartare for entree was "ok", but miles behind El Gouchos'. All in all pretty average second... More

Located in Graz only a few minutes walk from the Hauptplatz, Eckstein is a great place to eat outside under the tent and people watch, though if you're a non-smoker, cigarette smokers at other tables can intrude on your airspace. The food is a creative mix of Mediterranean and Styrian, and the service is helpful if sometimes a bit slow.

Excellent Restaurant, fine food, creativity with a Styrian touch, Good value, great service and a super ambiance. They got a great manager and passionate sommelier......just let him choose your wine ..preferably 'great Styrian' and you will not be disappointed. Place has just been renovated and is always busy. Very popular and I recommend a prior Reservation.
