Our boss is quite picky when it comes to food so it's not always easy to find a place for a team dinner when you're trying to please everyone. But he really liked this place and so did everyone else! We were 10 people but got the food quite fast, plus some gifts from the kitchen that were amazing! The... More

Traditional 5 star restaurant. No extravagant decoration, drinks or food choices. Straight forward high end Austrian kitchen and wine. Food was absolutely fabulous. From the kitchen greeting till the desert. Very friendly staff, nice table arrangements for enough privacy and a very city central location, just next to the Opera house. You don't have a view but that doesn't matter.... More

We went there for a casual lunch and chose the restaurant for its convenient location - what a surprise... Food was very creative and exceptionally good, we loved all our dishes and are sure to return. Service was very good - our entire experience was really amazing.

This is a fine place if you want fine dining before going to the oper. The Opera is next door. Nice plates, friendly service, good value for money. The souffle in the dessert is excellent. Be aware the the oper performances in Graz are in a modern setting which is not appreciated by everybody.

Came here friends from out of town and the food was totally amazing. Steak was cooked to perfection, salmon starter was to die for and the tortellini was heavenly. Service was gracious however not with a smile. It took a while to get a table, over 2 years however worth the wait. I will return if I can get a... More

A culinary experience. Food was amazing, service was good. We found the place through Tripadvisor, it was ranking high so we gave it a try. The place itself is very central, the interior is quite modern and stylish, we had dinner outside in the terrace. We were four in our party and all of them really loved everything that was... More

Had a long weekend in Graz. Made the booking for Carl a week in advance in English. When arrived they didn't have a English menu and they couldn't be bothered to translate anything for me. Luckily my girlfriend is from Austria so she could help me. 1 of the 2 waitresses took our order. They didn't give us a wine... More
