THIS is the place to dine in Würzburg. Absolutely delicious. Highly recommended!

THIS is the place to dine on Franconian delicacies in Würzburg. Delicious food, excellent wine list (explore the local knockouts!), and good service make Backöfele well worth seeking out. Highly recommended, just go!

Very good traditional German food which unless you were told about it would never experience as it does not publicise itself that well (from the backstreet in which it is located all there is is a shut wooden door i.e. no windows to look in, nothing!)

This is a fun little restaurant that is in a kind of hidden alley with what our kids thought was a secret door/back entrance. The food continues to be great and we will continue to visit every time we are in the city.

Had great first night in Germany here. Our dinners were typical German fare and very good. The local beer was great. We had a wonderful dinner that evening.

Many years ago my husband made me an offer: I'll take you wherever you want for your birthday dinner. When I told him the "Backoefele" he looked puzzled. (He who had never been out of Alabama). When I told him where it was he surprised me and we took a trip to Germany. There's no place I'd rather have birthday... More

located in center of wurzburg, this restaurant has the ambiance of a hunting lodge. It offers local favorites as well as classic German dishes for tourists. Wurzburg offers good local wine that you can not buy in other cities or internationally. Offcourse several options are on the menu at this place. I ordered the flusszander which is a fish caught...

This came highly recommended by a Franconian local, and the food definitely did not disappoint. The menus we were given were entirely in German (though I believe basic English menus are available). I was unfamiliar with a lot of the cuisine and therefore had to look up quite a few items on the Internet so I knew what I was... More
