In the town of Würzburg, Germany, it is the traditional Backöfele restaurant, which offers wonderful and diverse cuisine from Franconia. It is a cozy, elegant place with a good price. Recommended for people who value local gastronomy and gastronomic tourism.

When I travel to Würzburg I always go to eat there once. Its a nice restaurant with epic food. The only bad that you need to book table before you go for sure you get a table. And a bit noisy.

I'm happy that I made a reservation for the three of us in advance. The place was packed. No wonder why; quality of the food and service was great. Glad that they also had an English menu. That way I didn't have to translate all...More
