Hello Sepp,

a simple example:

data = Table[{x, y, Sin[x*y]}, {x, -3, 3, 1/5}, {y, -3, 3, 1/5}];
ListContourPlot[data[[All,All,3]], MeshRange -> {{-3, 3}, {-3, 3}}];
<Plot omitted>
Say, you want the range 0<=x<=1/2, -1<=y<=0. Then

data2 =
DeleteCases[Pick[data, Map[0 <= #1[[1]] <= 1/2 && -1 <= #1[[2]] <= 0 & , data, {2}]], {}];

selects the appropriate points; but the range of the values is not necessarily {{0,1/2},{-1,0}}.
So you have to determine the true range:

mr = (Through[{Min, Max}[#1]] & ) /@ Transpose[Flatten[data2[[All,All,{1, 2}]], 1]];

just to check it:

Dimensions[data2]
--> {3, 6, 3}

N[mr]
--> {{0., 0.4}, {-1., 0.}}

ListContourPlot[data2[[All,All,3]], MeshRange -> mr];

shows the restricted Area.

hth,
Peter
