Restaurants in tourist traps like Heidelberg so often disappoint to it is a relief always to find one which takes its task seriously. Backmulde does that - it is a traditional German restaurant in an attractive old building. I like this kind of cuisine, which has strong roots in tradition but which also recognizes that things have moved on a... More

This was our final meal in Germany, so we were hoping for greatness. (We did not get it) The pea soup we had for appetizers was too salty, while the cod was good, and the lamb sausage and shoulder I had was very good. I second all of the other TA comments - while this place is not of the... More

The place has Micheling Bib Gourmand recommendation. Was quite nice. Was really empty so the atmosphere was not the best.

While attending a conference in Heidelberg, a group of us decided to take our hotel's recommendation and try this restaurant. It was a decision well made. In addition to the great company, the food was amazing and the staff so helpful. A magnum of a great wine paired well with our meal. The lamb shoulder and sausage was delicious, and... More

Traveling alone on business, I decided to try this restaurant for dinner. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The stresses of the day's journey melted away in the calm setting. The menu offered plenty of tempting choices. I had a marvelous salad (tasted like summer on a drab January evening) and the cod, which was delicious. Delicate flavors and the perfect... More

I had the venison ragout. It was very good. The Husband had the rump steak and he kindly let me sample it. I liked my meal better though. Loved the ice cream and apple pie!

We found this gem on a side street in the Michelin guide, rated as a bib gourmand. Pleasant setting for lunch. Presentation was excellent. Chef uses regional ingredients in a creative way. The duck breast was nicely done. The liver and onions with spinach and mashed potatoes was a great dish. The service was slow after a good start. It... More

Great food with balanced flavors and decent portions. I describe it as "modern German" to my friends because you can get the familiar basics only with a twist. Which is great in this city, where there are plenty of comfort food German restaurants you can go to. But when you want classy German food with other great dishes, go here... More

If you want a well cooked and well presented meal in medium range price then this restaurant is for you. We had duck and pork with salad and it was magnificent. The wine selection is also good.
