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

...but you should try. It's delicious. Schnitzels were great, accompanying Franconian salad was enormous, and I made the oh-so-tasty mistake of ordering two extra side dishes - creamed mushrooms and sautéed potatoes. Scrummy. Staff were wonderfully friendly too, as we've been finding everywhere we've been in Wurzburg. There's also a groovy cocktail lounge attached to the restaurant through a stone... More

If you are looking for authentic, stop here! Great atmosphere. Authentic old style German set-up. Traditional dishes were excellent. A little hard to find but worth the effort!!!

Würzburg is a university town, so the supply of willing and motivated staff is good. These people, clad in becoming dark colors, try to make you feel welcome and in this they do succeed. The food is pricey - I am a native Franconian myself and I am able to compare - and the quality of the dishes is ok.... More

Only 200 yards from Alte Mainbruecke and Rathaus (still a little bit hidden, though), this restaurant offers a great selection of Frankonias local specialties, at good quality and acceptable ($$-$$$) price. This place is larger then it looks but fills up quite regularly. Friendly service in a slightly buzzing atmosphere.
