Landhaus Keller is a nice restaurant in Graz city center.
We have tried main dishes, pumpkin soup and wine, which are all local (Styrian).
Everything tasted very well. The portions were quite big.
The only disadvantage is that the dinner was quite expensive, maybe a bit overpriced.
But overall experience was great!

This is an interesting restaurant. Our pre-dinner activity included a tour of the vast cella, including a wine tasting, some history telling and canapes (liver pate balls -incredible), all of which were fantastic, as was our host. It is a great story. Seating upstairs was in a booth with fine linen and cutlery, although I found it a little cramped. I had a fabulous steak (possibly a little too much), whilst some of the group had some very traditional Austrian food (boiled meat for some and a smoked fish dish), and there were giant schnitzels for others "breaded" in a local (pumpkin?) seed mix. These, they said, were a little dry, but tasty. In fact, the seed mix was everywhere in different forms. There is also a nice little bar as you enter, for a pre dinner drink. Seemed reasonably priced.

We had booked a table for two at new years eve. We had preordered a 3 course menu and the food was very delicious. We didn't order the wine menu, but instead ordered a bottle of red wine (Hermada). Everything about the place was perfect, cosy surroundings, great service and the only thing which disappointed us, was the portions which were too small. We would have loved a bit larger portions, and more vegetables would have been nice. The entire restaurant seems to be non-smoking, which is very nice. We only give it 3 out of 5 due to the portion sizes.

We recently had dinner at Landhaus-Keller based on TripAdvisor reviews as well as a recommendation from our hotel (Schlossberg). I was looking for authentic regional cuisine and for the most part, Landhaus had it, though many recipes had a modern/creative twist in ingredients, composition and presentation.

Landhaus-Keller is beautifully decorated and makes for an ideal location for a romantic dinner or special event. The dark atmosphere is warm and seating provides ample privacy for dinner conversation. Tables were set with fine linen tablecloths and napkins and service ware (utensils, dishes etc.) were of good quality. A fresh rose graced every table and service was polished, though there was room for improvement as our waiter seemed to be over-tasked. (He neglected to change silverware between courses and didn't tell us of the daily specials.)

We were provided with menus in English and the waiter answered our questions regarding items on the menu. A waitress brought us a complimentary taster that was a slice of speck (cured smoked ham) with a beet/horseradish spread with fennel fronds. The chef was already demonstrating his creativity in the kitchen. The bread basket contained quality artisan bread with a crunchy crust, served with homemade herb butter.

To start, I had the clear broth with pancake strips, and cubed beef bits and vegetables. The broth was excellent, having the right amount of beef and vegetables. My wife enjoyed her clear broth with liver dumplings.

For entrees, I had the Tafespitz boiled beef rump, one of Landhaus-Keller's specialties. The dish is served in its copper cooking pot, in a leek/vegetable broth and accompanied by roasted potatoes, horseradish w/ apples and a cream chive sauce. The meat was tender; however, boiled meat in itself requires either the chive sauce or other toppings for flavor. A cut of bone also accompanied the dish so one can enjoy the bone marrow. My wife had grilled fillets of Char fish served over long pasta noodles tossed with a beet sauce. She didn't care for the flavors and the fish was seasoned with large sea-salt, adding for an unwanted taste and texture.

I noticed that a near-by table was enjoying several different courses, much like a tasting menu, which I didn't see offered on our English menu. The waiter explained that the woman at the next table was the chef's mother who was eating a "special menu" which is available to everyone; however, you must request the "special menu" prior to ordering.

For dessert we had an innovative, layered apple/cheese strudel, accompanied by vanilla ice cream. The presentation was very pleasant, however; this dessert falls apart and becomes a disaster when cutting with a fork or spoon. The flavor was unremarkable.

Prices were on the high side with our above meal, plus two aperitifs, a half liter of house wine and a bottle of water totaled 110 euro. My mission in finding traditional local cuisine failed as Landhaus-Keller added "fluff" to their presentations. I will next seek out a local stube for down-scale dining.
