If you want a budget meal then this is not the place for you. However if you are looking for the finest of steaks and you are prepared to pay for it then this is one of your best bets.

This is a very good meat restaurant. The waiter and waitress did a very good job. One of the best meat I ever been served worldwide. I can only say expensive but excellent.

A decent selection of steaks, only few other dishes. Sauces were nice, sides were ok. The steaks are at best average - and the two times i've been here, not as ordered. There are better locations to eat steak in Graz. Prices are not reasonable considering the quality. Avoid sitting inside (bad air from smoking area).

Next year the Non Smoking Act comes into force- than our bar will be also a Non Smoking Area. We would be glad, if you visit us in the summer time in our georgeous public garden.

The food at this place is very good. They show you a plate of raw meat and describe the different cuts. The drinks and appetitives are very delicious. We ordered almost all side dished and were amazed by the taste. The price is on upper level but for the quality absolutely worth.

The location of the Restaurant makes it appear promising. We spend 130 euros, but the price is not comparable to the food and service - too much money for that! Bad service, bad English. We did expect moore!

I visited this restaurant on Friday night and we were lucky to get a table. It gets very crowded in the evening, so it's advisable to book in advance. I tried bife de lomo steak and it was absolutely delicious. I can also highly recommend original steak fries and baked potato with chives sauce. It's a bit pricey, but I... More
