We had one main course each and tried three in total. Very good. It is important to pay up to understand the local cuisine. We were not disappointed.

The restaurant is realy nice, wide selection of local, Austrian and some international dishes. Big portions, nice waitresses, good price for a downtown restaurant. I'll visit this place again and again to try out the other dishes, too :)

Had a couple of meals here whilst in Graz on business. Friendly service, reasonably attentive, interesting menu. A lovely fillet of artic char on a mushroom risotto was a highlight. Puddings were good too (nice tiramisu, pleasant chocolate mousses). Good food, reasonably priced for the quality.

Visited on a Tuesday. The restaurant was quite full - good sign, right? Was offered a seat in the bar area on a high legged table. It's probably seldom used for dinners but ok for me. The waitress immediately started to set my table bringing breads, spreads, oils, salt, pepper..... great service. Then my rocket (Ruccola) salad arrived . THE... More

We are finicky eaters and looked long and hard for a good restaurant that had grilled fish versus deep fried veal or pork...Which is the specialty in this region. Therefore we were so happy with not only their great grilled Sea Bream but also their quality wine list. We were told they were famous for their desserts, but what we... More

I have dined here twice - once outside and once inside. I really like this place and the food & service is really good. LOCATION: Great location in a busy square in Graz Old Town. Nice seatings outside where you feel the wipe of the city. Unfortunately, the inside suffers from the small room, and the people smoking. FOOD: Excellent... More

Second visit but this time poor service and inferior food quality (seems they changed the chef). We ordered Beef Tartare , Tuna Steak with wok veggies, Zander fish with Risotto and some local salads with the famous Styrian pumpkin oil. Tartare was pretty bad in seasoning, toast cold and hard. Tuna not well cooked and the veggies were tasteless too... More

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

Ate here on our first night in Graz-the food was lovely and the service very good. I had a salad to start, with bacon, potato, soft scotch egg and leaves which was do tasty. 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
