This area is called the Bermuda Triangle as there are so many bars, pubs and restaurants that you might easily get lost! Eckstein isn't a nice, upscale restaurant with good service and excellent dishes.

Really fancy place. Delicious food! Delicious deserts! Expensive. Quite expensive. It's not easy to get a table because the place is popular so booking in advance is a good idea. Anything on their menu is worth trying.

Short review just to endorse some of the others on here. Great service, well priced with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Pay attention to what you are ordering and if in doubt ask - English is spoken - you wont be dissapointed

We had one main course each and tried three in total. Very good. It is important to pay up to understand the local cuisine. We were not disappointed.

The restaurant is realy nice, wide selection of local, Austrian and some international dishes. Big portions, nice waitresses, good price for a downtown restaurant. I'll visit this place again and again to try out the other dishes, too :)

Had a couple of meals here whilst in Graz on business. Friendly service, reasonably attentive, interesting menu. A lovely fillet of artic char on a mushroom risotto was a highlight. Puddings were good too (nice tiramisu, pleasant chocolate mousses). Good food, reasonably priced for the quality.

Visited on a Tuesday. The restaurant was quite full - good sign, right? Was offered a seat in the bar area on a high legged table. It's probably seldom used for dinners but ok for me. The waitress immediately started to set my table bringing breads, spreads, oils, salt, pepper..... great service. Then my rocket (Ruccola) salad arrived . THE... More

We are finicky eaters and looked long and hard for a good restaurant that had grilled fish versus deep fried veal or pork...Which is the specialty in this region. Therefore we were so happy with not only their great grilled Sea Bream but also their quality wine list. We were told they were famous for their desserts, but what we... More

I have dined here twice - once outside and once inside. I really like this place and the food & service is really good. LOCATION: Great location in a busy square in Graz Old Town. Nice seatings outside where you feel the wipe of the city. Unfortunately, the inside suffers from the small room, and the people smoking. FOOD: Excellent... More

Second visit but this time poor service and inferior food quality (seems they changed the chef). We ordered Beef Tartare , Tuna Steak with wok veggies, Zander fish with Risotto and some local salads with the famous Styrian pumpkin oil. Tartare was pretty bad in seasoning, toast cold and hard. Tuna not well cooked and the veggies were tasteless too... More
