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

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
