Restaurant | "An Al fresco Lunch at Masala"

Quote:
It may seem unlikely right now as this prolonged winter tries to drag itself into spring, but there may come a time when it is possible to enjoy an alfresco lunch. There are lots of places to do this in central Graz but the majority of outdoor dining areas are on the pavement or in paved courtyards and therefore you have people trooping past as you’re eating. I do know one place, however, in the city centre that is a haven of peace and quite, all the more surprising given its location close to the main train station and the ring road both of which create a lot of noise.Masala is an Indian restaurant that has a lovely enclosed garden. It’s open for lunch and dinner but we dropped by one lun...Read More

Restaurant | "Lunch at Leiner's"

My travelling companion is set in his ways when it comes to meal times. He likes his main meal to be taken in the evening and prefers a lighter lunch. Travelling so much in central Europe, however, we usually find that the best value is to be had at lunchtime when set meals are being served, and that cheaper restaurants tend to be almost empty in the evenings and therefore lacking in ambience. I, on the other hand, am an early riser and by lunchtime I am ready for a bigger meal, preferring to eat light in the evening to promote better sleep. Finding a lunch location when travelling can be a minor ordeal when you want different things and don’t want to spend too much. After a trek around c...Read More

Restaurant | "Budget Breakfast in Graz"

While we were delighted to get a good price on our Saturday night at Das Weitzer we didn’t then want to blow that saving on an expensive breakfast in the hotel. Das Weitzer charges a whopping €14 per person for breakfast and, although a peek through the window as we departed did make us slightly envious, we didn’t want to pay so much. The problem is that most people aren’t working in Graz city centre on a Sunday so most of those cafes and bakeries that would serve something suitable for breakfast are closed. Fortunately after a fair bit of Googling, we found our way to Haltestelle, a couple of footsteps from the Hauptplatz. This bar-café-slot machine joint on Sporgasse is not the most salu...Read More

Dainadoo

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Dainadoo-doo-doo (Push pineapples, shake the tree...)"

Quote:
The brilliantly named Dainadoo - (it means 'homeland' in Tamil) - is a Sri Lankan restaurant in central Graz. It doesn't appear in any of the tourist office listings and I only found it through some dedicated research online. You'd be unlikely to find it simply by strolling around Graz, though it is very close to a couple of large hotels, namely the Das Weitzer, where we stayed, and its neighbour and sister hotel, the Wiesler. The restaurant is about seven minutes walk from the Hauptplatz and three minutes from the Kunsthaus. There are plenty of car-parks in the immediate area, though you may be lucky enough to find a parking space outside the restaurant. The restaurant is housed in the gr...Read More

Dom Bräu

Restaurant | "Dine at a Brewery!"

Dom Brau, Graz - I'll be back Photo, Graz, Austria
Quote:
This cosy and attractive restaurant, which is very popular with lunch time diners from nearby businesses, has its own adjoining brewery. In fact, when you approach it, you can see the beer making equipment through a window in the narrow lane next to the building.The building is a little tucked away but head for the cathedral and you should spot a brightly coloured sign to point you in the right direction.The interior is cheerful with sunny yellow walls and some quirky paintings and bits and pieces about the place. There is meant to be something of a monastic theme about the place - no doubt inspired by the proximity of the cathedral but this doesn't explain the brilliant Arnie ...Read More
