In an old hospital, with exquisite winery and good people as customers! No beer available, but a wide range of their own wine. Try the marvellous Silvaner wine! Food, atmosphere, service, prices, everything excellent!

A group of us ate here after a long, hard day of business. THe wine list features local specilaties and is excellent. THe menu also feature franconian specialties. My pot roast and cabbage was scrumptious. We lingered for three and a half hours over more wine, deepening collaborations inthe cozy atmosphere. Heartily recommended.

The restaurant was very crowded but our waiter took super good care of us - in English. It is a locally poplular spot and very reasonably priced. I had "pike-perch" (tsander) in a potato pancake crust and salad and local Sylvaner (white) wine. The bill for 2 of us was 51 euros! 2 different people had recommended this place, the Rebstock Hotel and the guy sitting next to us in the restaurant the night before. This may have been our best meal in 3 weeks in Germany. Reservations ESSENTIAL!

First night in Wurtzburg we were too tired to go to the best restaurant recommended to us at the hotel. This was the second, closer by. A very good choice, the Franken wine was excellent.

First of all, make sure you are going to the Juliusspital Weinstuben -- as there are lots of Juliusspital facilities in Wurzburg. Juliusspital is a hospital association that owns a hospital, vineyards, and a wine estate and tasting room in and around Wurzburg. So if you want an excellent lunch or dinner, make sure its the Weinstuben you are going to -- which is at the location indicated, and is a small pedestrian type alley opposite the Wurzburger Hof Hotel.

The wine: Wurzburg, despite being in Bavaria (beer country) is wine country. One look at the vineyards surrounding this city on the Main River, and you'll understand. So if you go to the Weinstuben Juliusspital, make sure you order the Franconian (Franken) wine grown in the Juliusspital vineyards (yes, they grow and bottle their own wine). Your best choice is a Silvaner grape, which is a German variety of grape. While not considered as good as Riesling in other areas of Germany, it reaches its peak in Franconia. Definitely try it, make sure you order Trocken (dry) and let the waiter select for you. You can get an excellent bottle in the 20 Euro range, and while you can get other grape varieties for less, get a great dry Silvaner.

The food: Excellent German comfort food -- brats, ham platters, cheese platters, soups and salads for lunch, and more substantial food for dinner, which included a wonderful smoked whole trout. Contrary to certain misconceptions, the Germans love their food and wine every bit as much as the Italians and French do, so expect to spend a long time enjoying your wine and food. Don't rush things. The food is excellent and should be savored.

The service: I can't speak for the entire staff, because our waiter at lunch was so good, we asked him to make reservations for us for dinner and to be our waiter for dinner. When we came back for dinner, the reserved table was ready for us, exactly where promised. So at least from our experience, the service was superb and friendly. Also, in Germany, where a 10% tip is considered good (ask a German), we tried to tip him at 20% because of the great service and he would not accept it and gave us some of it back. It was all very friendly, he just didn't consider it fair for us to tip him at that level. When has that ever happened to you.

The ambience: The Weinstube is a great place to relax, drink wine, and enjoy food. You are not rushed. There is a nice outside courtyard (tables are under a canopy in the event of rain) where we had lunch, and for dinner, we ate in one of the more formal interior rooms -- still with a modern arty feel (not your typical basement rathskeller).

If you are in Wurzburg (which is a wonderful city to visit), be sure and go to the Juliusspital. You won't regret your decision.
