“fine dining, great service, and evocative setting”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Visiting Graz in July, I was able to be seated in the courtyard, lovely arcaded setting. The interior rooms of the restaurant would have been just as evocative of times past. Cozy yet elegant. The food was very well prepared, local specialties with local products. Wine list excellent, and service impeccable.

“Pretentious and Expensive”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

When I reserved a table i wasn't expecting to be in a pretentious restourant: the atmosphere is confortable, but the food choice is limited, and everything is expensive and with pompous names.

The food quality is certainly high and the food is overall quite good (the side dishes are not,,,), but the portions are really small and you will need a FULL dinner in order to be (nearly) satisfied.

The price is really high for everything, don't expect to spend less then 50€ each, if you plan to order a full dinner.

“Chaos”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Although I used to live in Graz I had never gone there so recently went for lunch and ordered one of the set menus. The second course came but not the starter. After complaining I was offered a free coffee instead plus a small amount off the price (the menu price, not the price of what I actually had). When the bill came they had charged me for two drinks. The poor waitress who had to deal with it was very nice and apologetic and I think quite embarrassed and exasperated at the continuous errors her colleagues had caused. The waiter who had caused the mess seemed more interested in talking to someone who seemed like a businessman friend of his sitting at the next table.

“What a pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012 via mobile

I went in a bit late in the evening after I checked in a nearby hotel
From the facade, it looked like a pub, but once inside, it looked very cozy
I was greeted by a couple of young waitresses who helped me with the menu. English menu is avalable.
The food I ordered was lite, and flavorful (soup & carpaccio). They have traditional fare such as schnitzel as well. The wine list was quite large. Also avalable by the glass
