Staying in the hotel next to the restaurant we had seen the menu in the hotel lobby. The menu looked good and prices seemed reasonable. Unfortunately this turned out to be the lunch menu and the dinner menu was twice as expensive. The food was good but not excellent. Plates were nicely dressed. Staff was friendly.

This restaurant located in the Ausgarten hotel offers fine Austrian dishes. Quite limited choice, but you do not need more. Value for money is OK. Friendly service. Can firmly recommend.

Magnolia is next to our hotel so went there on a Monday night and had the small menu of three plates. The chef also added some hors d'oeuvre, a sorbet between the entree and main and also some sweet selections after the meal was over. The waitress guided us through wine selections appropriate to each course, all of which were... More

This very small restaurant serves many small plates with special chief dishes to start. It is a gem in the small city of Graz. The staff greeted you in your language. Food was simple but great.

I had a night on my own in Graz on a work trip and had read the reviews on here, so thought I'd give this place a go. It was pretty daunting at first as I had no idea what I was letting myself in for in terms of either food or cost. I'm still not sure exactly how the... More

We were in the nearby hotel and came here only because it was close to the hotel. We didn't know what was waiting for us in this restaurant. Initially we got a bit afraid about the menu, just 10 dishes and prices very high, but we discovered we could also get a la carte menù, so we ordered jut a... More

Excellent dinner, went there for the "Heringsschmaus". You can take three to six courses, separate meals freely interchangeably, if you can't choose, you can take a recommended menu.

We have been there four times now and every time the kitchen knows how to surprise and delight. The food is mostly made with Local Styrian ingredients, there is always a variety of different courses on the menu which you can freely arrange to the menu you like. I don't think you can find comparable haute cuisine for these relatively... More

The Magnolia is a restaurant which self-confidently tests the limits of good taste – in a positive sense. Austrian-Mediterranean ingredients go into the pot, and top international cuisine emerges. It’s not just Gault Millau and the Falstaff who appreciate this with their limitless enthusiasm. It's anyone who has ever eaten here.
