The restaurant is located in the center of old town. You can eat outside in the summertime. We ate rucola and mix salads, fish, octopus and beef. All were tasty and well prepared. Portions are a little bit pricy compared to the other restaurants, but those are worth of that - almost. The development area is the customer service. It... More

My main course (ravioli) was good but not amazing. The chocolate mousse can easily be shared between two people. The service was good. Quote expensive but... More

In the middle of the old town this Graz institution serves reliable good food at expensive but not outrageous prices. Service is attentive, the sommelier displays wit and a firm though friendly guiding hand steering one away from wines that are not ready yet. The grill is good, if you are into it the Simmental steaks are tender and tasteful.... More

We chanced upon Eckstein's looking for a restaurant on our first evening it was very busy but eventually we were accommodated, the ambiance, friendliness of staff, quality of the food was top class. We were so impressed that we returned for the subsequent three nights of our stay - the staff especially Tomas looked after us to the highest standard... More

But let's face it, to be top in cuisine it needs top quality food, booze and service as well. And as times go by so did most of my drinks. Tempted to sing "Hello, is it me you're looking for...". Nevertheless the food was okay although a little bit overpriced, but I have to admit dessert was great.

Located down town in Graz, yes it's a bit posh but, the blend of local and international food is just great. The waiters are attentive. however a starter + a main cause + desert is a bit hefty form the amount one eats… it's good don't worry but still...

We've visited Eckstein twice this year as our first experience in August proved to be so good. Its innovative kitchen and friendly service attracted us again as we were strolling through old Graz in this festive pre-Christmas period. And again, eating was superb, delicious. Based mainly on local products, they offer some fusion with a touch of Mediterranean. Add some... More

I've been to this restaurant 3 times and they never disappointed my expectation. The food is good, the staff is friendly and also a pretty good choice of good wines. Fillet is delicious so are the salads. I'll be back.

We didn't book a table, but the staff immediatley looked for and laid one table for us. We ordered one dessert and got two spoons without asking for it.
