  1. 1

    Der Steirer

    Styrian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere with young waiters and top wines - it is precisely this combination that has made the Steirer one of the favourite restaurants in Graz for years. In addition to classical Austrian dishes, the Styrian tapas taste particularly good here: the waiters serve beef salad, paprika goulash or baked chicken salad in mini format. A perfect way to taste the whole menu!

    Gösser Bräu

    Fried chicken salad with pumpkin seed oil, sour beef, or a traditional pasta specialty with cabbage and beer, of course. For over 120 years, the Gösser Bräu has been impressing with Austrian cuisine and a rustic atmosphere. If you're looking for culinary delights, regionality and quality, you've come to the right place.

  3. 3

    Altsteirische Schmankerlstube

    The Altsteirische Schmankerlstube is as cosy as it sounds: dark wood, white table runners, an inviting room with dimmed lighting. In addition to good plain cooking and Sytrian specialities. If you're lucky, you'll get a seat straight away, otherwise call first and make a reservation!

  4. 4


    In Laufke a young team cooks Styrian and authentic dishes with products from the region. Very charming: the wood-panelled walls and the old, creaking wooden floor. The centrepiece is the fine, quiet garden and the bar, which specialises in old whiskeys.
