Excellent food, drinks and service. Sometimes needs to make a reservation. Good place to start... Located in the downtown, close to many other bars and restaurants.

We came to Eckstein on recommendation from our friends who used to live in Graz. May be we weren't lucky, or may be Eckstein had had a bad day. Or may the things deteriorated over the years and it has become a tourist trap.
So, we did not receive a single smile during our lunch. Staff was polite, but cold and somewhat detached. Food was mediocre: rice in risotto was too hard, and there was too much vinegar in salad. When I mentioned the latter to the waitress, no apology followed, just a stiff "I'll tell the kitchen". Needless to say, no "sorry" espresso either.
And it was expensive, too.

We had a good meal here, certainly not the best we've ever had, but also not the worst by any means. The service was really slow, We went on a Tuesday night and it was very crowded and kind of loud. They seated us in a corner by some shrubbery and the water station, so maybe that had something to do with it. I got the feeling they put the tourists there. The staff was never rude, but seemed to be preoccupied with waiting on everyone else. Oh yeah...smoking. Lots of it, not what we were hoping for while we were eating. I can't entirely blame the restaurant for that, though. It's just something you should know when eating outside in Austria, for the most part. Our server finally made some small talk as we were deciding if we wanted dessert, so he helped redeem the visit somewhat. We probably spent at least a half hour of extra time just due to waiting around to order, for dessert, for more wine, and for the check.

We were looking for a restaurant for Sunday evening in Graz and saw a helpful review mention Sunday. Nice table in the open air and the young waitress was very attentive and helpful. We both had freshly cooked pasta dishes that were above the usual standard of pasta dish with nice flavours.
We each chose to have a dessert and when the were brought to the table they looked amazing. I had the Eckstein Schocolade - 3 chocolcate mousses and the presentation was very modern and appealing. The quality however was very average with the milk being very heavy.
Overall we enjoyed the quality of our meal but thought that it did not provide enough quality for the price.
