Awesome atmosphere, and excellent authentic german food in an extremely old building. The staff was very accommodating even though we arrived just before the kitchen closed.

Having read comments of former patrons we entered with a critical mind. Indeed the setting is very simple and clean: wooden tables with a small napkin, wooden chairs and benches with cushions. We had a reservation and were quickly escorted to our table. As we were not as young as most customers the waiter seated us in a quiet corner... More

We had a group dinner with 8 people. The food was excellent and the décor was very special. The only complaint was the service was very slow and our waitress seemed to give more attention to the German speaking tables. But I would still highly recommend this place but do not be in any rush.

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.

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".
