Description: The pulse of Franconia beats in the heart of Wuerzburg. You can feel it ? or rather taste it - in the historic surroundings of the Stachel, which is a restaurant and wine bar. As a wine bar, the Stachel offers the best wines in Franconia. There is wine tasting every Saturday in the restaurant's very own wine cellar. You also need something solid to line your stomach, so that the wine does not go to your head. The chef Richard Huth serves slow food ? Frankish delicacies ? and the presentation is creative. He cooks authentically using locally sourced ingredients which are mostly organic ? and it shows in the taste.

We are here for lunch and it was lovely. I had roast pork with dumplings and my friend had trout almondine. Looks like it gets quite busy so reservations recommended.

We loved this restaurant and wished we had known about it when we first arrived in Wurzburg rather than when we were a day away from leaving. Our lunch was simple, but delicious: flavorful consomme with shredded crepe and a generous, perfectly dressed salad composed of the freshest ingredients. The interior ambiance was charming, quiet and what one would expect... More

This is the oldest "Weinstube" in Würzburg and has several places where you can get seated: outside in the extremely charming yard, on terraces, in the wine cellar or inside the restaurant. It is however charming all over the place. The service was perfect with the restaurant manager constantly making sure that everything was okay. The wine list is long... More

It was next to our hotel, Alte Kraner Hotel. We went in with no recommendation and ordered local food. Service was good, atmosphere pleasant and warm, and the dishes fabulouse. It started a very nice tour of lovely Wurzburg. Recommend warmly.

Next to the Castell Bank at the Marketplace in a small short road you find the Stachel, the oldest restaurant in town. It seems you find it in most tourist guides and overall they are not a tourist trap and offer a very nice setting with wooden furniture large murals and a very fitting decoration but... coming home from a...

Finding Weinhaus Stachel is not easy: the understated entrance is on a tiny side street where cars seldom venture, but it is worth the trouble to find. The chef is a proponent of "slow food", and my husband and I opted for his slow food fixed-price menu. The food was superb from start to finish, and we were delighted that... More

The food was ok. It was the wine that amazed us. The restaurant is set in an amazing setting as well.

The Stachel is Würzburg's oldest Weinhaus (1413) and is really a wonderful place. Richard Huth (Eurotoques Chef) is a member of " slow food", the international association for the preservation of good taste. It means that the service maybe is a bit relaxed, but once there, take your time. Try the outdoor guinea fowl - really fantastic!

I prefer the small uncomfortable triangular table in the window alcove. There you get the feel of this 500-year-old restaurant. The service and food has always been borderline luxurious. The wines are outstanding and the atmosphere may be the best in town. If you have more than a day or two in town do not miss this restaurant.

We went here on our first night in Wurzburg, we were still jet lagged and had sleeped till 8.30pm so we arrived at 9.30pm and were seated. The atmosphere was good with a local charm and we didn't know what to expect. The menu was in German but we were ably helped by the head waiter who also recommed a... More
