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!

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

This restaurant was very busy and crowded on a week night. The entry is rather odd. Don't expect anyone to greet you at the door. You have to walk though the restaurant, up some stairs and through the bar to check in with the hostess. Our table for two was very small and the equally small chairs were tippy on... More

Been here many times. Interesting decor just a bit too big of a restaurant for my taste. Food is good we tried the half duck, bratwurst and beef tartare. All was well presented and tasty. My favorite was the duck. Good local wines. I recommend it and will return again. CIAO

If you are looking for a place where you can taste the german and most specifically the food from Franken, then you definitely have to go to The Backöfele. Since you cross the main door, it's already the start of the travel : the court is well used and getting there in winter with this cosy mood, candles, and so... More
