At lunch, we light what is probably the best charcoal grill in southern Austria. It's the reason why, here in the Speisesaal, only the juiciest burgers, falafel, shrimps and steaks are brought out of the kitchen…

The goal was to create an institution that loved both understatement and explosions of flavour. A dash of coolness and a feeling for the international trends was added and voilà: The Speisesaal was born. Every evening, vinyl sounds are played from the restaurant's loudspeakers, and everyone just has a really good time. We serve cosmopolitan delicacies from all over the world with this. Many of them come fresh from the charcoal grill – one of the best in southern Austria. Which you'll be able to taste.
Oh Graz, you lucky devil
What do they love in Graz? Head chef Susanne Nebel answers this right from the kitchen: "When guests be amazed from the food", for example with our Moroccan lemon chicken. The most-ordered items in our restaurant are the "chefs choice" dishes, which some will even rave about to their grandchildren. We love travelling, and while we're at it, we lasso culinary ideas in international restaurants and pubs, which we then reinterpret and present on our menu. Our famous charcoal grill is brought in for many of these, and enhances the best flavours of every piece of meat or fish and every vegetable. It's a matter of course that even when buying the basic products, we ensure that they're outstanding.
Burge(r)oisie and steak night
Of course, we make sure every day that our burgers and steaks land on a plate at exactly the right time. But our horizon stretches far beyond the American classics like tenderloin, huft and rip eye steak. They're joined by beloved classics like the Grand Hotel Wiesler Caesar Salad or the lamb skewer as well as our special soup creations like Boillabaisse à la Marseillaise or pee soup with sausage.
Sweets & drinks
It's not just the food on our menu what's international, but also the drinks. Afri Cola dances with Kardamint - a Styrian stroke of genius - and Starobrno actually gets on really well with Makava from Graz. You can also find a special guest in our assortment: the Bordeaux vine from the french vineyard Chateau Lamothe-Cissac. But that's not all – we've also got a sweet side, demonstrated not only by our Tiramisu, but also by our magic chocolate ball, caramelised banana with coconut and orange or other delicacies from our Speisesaal cabinet.
