Some places can only be discovered trough a local friend… and in a certain way, this is good, because sometimes too much tourism can degenerate them… However, I was really happy to have the chance to enjoy this restaurant. The smokers dining area (yes, there is still one somewhere!) is traditional, rustic and cozy; while the non-smoking one is modern,... More

We were looking for a place to have lunch and found this gem. Very traditional and rustically designed place, offering for example Austrian version of lamb shank (very good). Service and quality of the food was very good.

Went to a late dinner here with some business associates and enjoyed a typical and traditional Austrian dinner. Started out with the traditional carpaccio Austrian style and finished with a large serving of veal with potatoes and a delicious sauce. My other colleague and the business partners all enjoyed their serving, so can recommend this place. Serving was good and... More

Having just moved to Graz I am still getting to know places. It has been so hot lately we decided not to go into the city but stay on the outskirts. Schmiedn is nestled along the side of the road. A former smithy with lots of rooms and a shady garden. We were lucky we found a table. A Wednesday... More

“Zur Schmied’n” is situated directly at a busy street in a rather ugly part of town. Neither this nor its spacious parking lot should scare you away. Although the restaurant is large, this does not make itself felt given that it consists of several rather small dining rooms. The decoration of this restaurant is rustic to the utmost, which provides... More

We were a group of people and had a reservation for a Christmas party. We were squeezed with another party group in a small room without any ventilation. It was stuffy and hot and the smoke of the neighbouring bar was coming in our room. The staff forgot several times our order we had to ask four times to get... More

Nice restaurant in the outskirts of Graz. Offers traditional Austrian dishes and from time to time specials from another region, when I was there they offered Mediterranean dishes. I stayed with some local specialities (Schmiedn plate and pancake soup) and tried even the Strawberry Tiramisu. Everything was excellent - and dining al fresco in the large "Biergarten" was also fun.

When I am in Graz I try to eat here, even if i wonder how a tourist would end up here, as this place us a bit out of town. The food is just excellent, the service a bit mechanical but ok. The setting is very 'urig', if you manage to pass by jump in and give it a try.
