The service was horrible from the beginning to the end. Not only the waitress brought a wring drink, it took ages to bring a correct one. On top of that they never came to our table after that. Food was ok, just average nothing special. I find this place is overrated in here. We're very excited coming here because of... More

Backöfele is a typical German restaurant, with great food, very generous portions and for a good price. Compared to other restaurants with that quality, this one definitely stands out!. Fully recommended when visiting the city, a romantic dinner, or when family is visiting. Dessert tip: Kaisserschmarm for 4 people, its fantastic!

Prompt and very pleasant service. Atmosphere of this establishment is also great. Good traditional Franconian dishes with generous serving. I particularly liked the side salad with various pickled vegetables and potato salad. Schnitzel piece was very large and tasty. If you are looking for a good German food, this place would be one!

We went there for a traditional Bavarian meal and did not leave disappointed. My pork shoulder was near perfect, and my colleague mentioned his meal was the best of our trip. Well worth going!

Food was ok, beer great, waitress normally passive (for Europe). Interesting design, and perfect location in the Altstadt.

This restaurant is suitable for persons of all ages. It is beautifully decorated in a country style. The tables are varied and positioned such that there is no monotony. It gets very full so reserve in advance. The food is traditional "Franken".

On a Monday night the place was full! Always a good sign that a restaurant serves good food and is used by the locals. The entrance was hidden away from the main street and the entrance was not imposing, but once inside the traditional nature of this restaurant was evident. I wasn't expecting menu's with English, but a few discussions... More

Very nice place in Würzburg downtown, very good typical food for a cheap prices... Stay away from the wines and rather drink some beers or schnapps (Mirabelle). The small drawback: the service was quite long, we had to frequently call for the waiters.

Returning to Würzburg after a few years I looked up this old favourite. Even though they were crowded on a friday evening I was able to get a table for four. The food was as good as it has always been. I had wildschweine and it was fantastic. Definitely recommend for anyone visiting Wurzburg. The location is a bit tricky... More

I have been at Backoefele more than 15 times. I work at the University and I have also gone with some Professors when they come to give lectures. Thus, it has been always my first choice in Würzburg. However, not anymore. Yesterday (3/11/13) afternoon (17.00) was, of course, completely empty. We were two and we could not seat anywhere we... More
