Nice meal, little too smokey

We had an excellent meal, great service and good wines. Beautiful pork shank and local trout. However, the smoke from the bar was a little much. Arrive earlier before the bar fills up to enjoy this wonderful place to the fullest.

Considering the location right next door from the glockenspiel, stylish decor, very nice food yet almost cheap prices, this place can be considered a real find. Good sized portions, nice wine selection and romantic setting, perfect for a night out.

The meat and all of the sides were very delicious, the service was good aswell, very willing to help out with the non speaking dutch clients. The only BUT is that its a smoking restaurant, which can ruin your overall experience.

This is probably one of the best places in Graz, where you can get fantastic food and also a cool atmosphere to stay after dinner in the bar area.

What a popular place & essential to book as I did. Tables are very close to each other which can make it difficult to get in/out. Staff are very efficient yet dining is not rushed. My Back of Veal cooked medium with mustard, pumpkin cream, marinated tiny cube of pumpkin, capers, olives & rocket was beautifully presented & the meat... More

We were lucky to get a table. Very friendly service. Menu has a good variety of food, from traditional (not the schnitzel-type though) food to rather conventional to very creative. All very fresh and veeery yummy especially if you are after the not-every-day down-to-earth Austrian dishes with some detail that you would not expect. Wine menu very well selected! Super... More

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
