Fun place, contemporary design, good food, & reasonable prices
In late May a new restaurant, Regina Margherita, unceremoniously opened in Graz. It is destined to become popular, if not sought after, in a city increasingly known for its dining options (most of which fail to deliver on their promises). Perhaps because it is related to other restaurants (in other cities), the Graz opening and initial operation of Regina Margherita seem uncommonly smooth for a new offering. We visited during its second day of operation. The only glitches that we encountered were its being so new it’s difficult to find them listed anywhere, and that at the time of our visit, they were not yet accepting credit cards (if this is important to you, you may wish to check directly with them prior to visiting).
Simply stated, the design is modern, short of “trendy.” The menu offerings are largely Italian (mostly pizzas and pastas, with some beef and other, more upscale, items). However, do not be misled by the basic Italian fare… we were treated to very well-prepared food, interestingly combined, and attractively presented – by a very professional wait staff. We dined outside, in the short, short and narrow passageway, Altstadtpassage, in which it is situated between the forever-busy Herrengasse pedestrian street and Mehlplatz, an area already well-known for numerous drinking and dining options. Though the official address is Herrengasse 7, this is actually the only the address of the door to the passageway (Altstadtpassage).
Rather than bore readers with a taste-by-taste description, suffice it to say that this restaurant serves basic food, but with a flourish and flair, and at reasonable prices.
