“My favorite destination for Franconian food”
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”
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.

“Good Franconian style kitchen”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Try some of the food in Franconian style, like "Blaue Zipfel", to get a taste of the region.
Good quality, and prices are acceptable.

“Good, but certainly not #2”
Reviewed June 23, 2011

Backoefele is a decent choice, but there are many better places in town. It is a hang out for college students, offering reasonably priced good food and drink. I find it a bit dingy and lacking anything special on the menu.

“best tourist restaurant in town”
Reviewed October 14, 2010

You have visitors from outside and want a cozy Frankonian atmosphere with regional specialities, then you are at the right spot here.

No seating outside, but almost similar seating with a ceiled courtyard.

Food ok, not great, dont expect something special, you get the typical dishes, but worth giving it a try.
