“Best spot in town on a sunny day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

The food is good, but you go there for the location. Try to get a table with a view on the fortress across the river.

“Tourists love the view, Locals love the food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

A recent reviewer called the Alte Mainmuhle the best restaurant in Germany. Such hyperbole ruins the value TripAdvisor. This is a really good restaurant, but arguably not even the best in Würzburg. We eat there often and have for many years. It is one of the most charming restaurant in town and one of the top three for food. It features regional fare and many innovative dishes. I especially like the tartar and the spare ribs. Wines are a bit expensive, but excellent. Reservations are a must, especially if you want the great view. We try to avoid the peak tourist season, because it is a real tourist-magnet. But, Locals love it too. Do not miss the restaurant, but be wary of reviewers who think everything is the best ever, or worst ever. There is only one of each.

“Good food and Great location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Lucky to have a work trip in Wurzburg. Beautiful town and this restaurant will add to your trip. The atmosphere is great. After you meal take a drink onto the bridge and soak in the sites.

Although my dish was average other colleagues had very attractive meals.

Service was good also.

“Best Food in Germany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Excellent location....great service and simply the best meal I had in Germany (visited 15 cities). Ambiance in casual yet trendy. One chef...everything is made from scratch. If you visit Wurzburg, and don't dine here, don't go to Wurzburg. The location is steps away from old town and stroll after meal is highly recommended.

“Great visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Had a business dinner here. Great location, Fantastic food! I asked the waitress if I should have the sourbraten or the sausages.... her answer: "The pork shoulder." I am glad I asked! it was outstanding. Men, If you visit this restaurant you must use the restroom. Coolest urinal I have ever seen!
