“Wonderful Bavarian Restaurant and the locals love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Unique Bavarian decor and good food and service. Well worth it. Beef and fish dishes were good as was the great German white wine.

“Good food & a pleasant atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

This place seems popular with the locals, which is probably because of the good German food and friendly atmosphere. We certainly had two pleasant evenings there and didn't find it to be full of either students or tourists as mentioned in other reviews.

It's hidden away in an alley near the town centre, but it manages to fill up quite early. Therefore I would recommend making a reservation.

“A good choice for students”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

The Backofele was one of my wife's favorite restaurants from her university days. Decades later it is still good, but it is remains more attractive for the university crowd than for fine dining. That is not meant to take anything away from the quality of the food or the reasonable prices. It is still tightly packed, dark and quaint. Service is average.

“My favorite destination for Franconian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

This place flat out rocks. After living in the neighborhood for +4 years, I eat here every time I return to Wuerzburg. You just can't go wrong. Start out with the Frankische mostsuppe (white wine soup) and make sure you round out your meal with the apfelpfankuchen.

“Rounds up to a 4 because I like the atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Comprehensive traditional menu, with additional menu featuring game when I visited. Thankfully, they also offer an English menu, but that's because this place is a bit touristy. Adorable atmosphere, with a tree on the lower level. The seating area goes a ways back, and the restaurant is larger than it looks. Dim lighting presents a cozy atmosphere.

The food is good, but nothing outstanding. The portions are decent, and the prices are moderate.
