I went to have brunch there and was a little bit disappointed. The food was ok but it was nothing special. I think that the place is a little bit overrated. Nevertheless, the view was amazing and the atmosphere was very nice.

It came to my surprise to find this place as it wasn't listed among top places on tripadvisor while I planned trip to Graz, and I've decided to pay it a visit as all other places were closed on that Thursday morning. It offers really nice view of eastern part of the city and bell tower. Place keeps simple and... More

What can I say…? It’s definitely an experience, dining at Aiola Upstairs! Yes, you could enjoy Graz view also from other places; but even though the restaurant is everything but cheap, for a special night this can be the right spot, to me. The restaurant in itself has a pleasant style, modern but not overstated; moreover, a peculiarity (interesting for... More

We were in Graz for a wedding - otherwise there is no reason to go there really...a quaint town with nothing much going on. This restaurant was accessed via a lift inside the mountain which was fun. Our dinner was served by a good waiter - all fine....drinks good etc... I ordered RED CURRY....ok so I live in Asia so... More

I don't have enough good things to say about this wonderful restaurant located on top of The Castle mount near the Clocktower. Not only was the view amazing of the entire city but the food was out of this world and extremely innovative. We started with ahi tuna salad as a starter that was prepared to perfection. And then had... More

I have visited Aiola Upstairs a couple of times and my impressions are consistent. LOCATION: Great view over the Eastern part of Graz. FOOD: The food is average and a bit boring. The quality of ingredients are medium. This picture doesn't reflect the high cost and you are leaving the restaurant disappointed. STAFF: Students? The waiters don't seem professional to... More

Popped in after walking up the to the Uhrturm and had delicious aperitif prosecco cocktails. Super view, drinks €5 each, service good. (NB No cards for less than €20.)

The location is great, the menu looked good. BUT - having asked the waitress if I could sit at a particular table and told that was fine I waited... and waited. No menu was brought, nobody approached at all. After 10 minutes, having seen no staff nearby, I did wonder if maybe this was a self service restaurant. Well, there... More

We took the railway up the hill and ended up at the highest point. Checked out the 2 restaurants there, one inside service only with a great view, the other more of a beer garden. We thought we would end up eating in the old town until we found this open air restaurant. We had a great table in the... More
