......take care what you say!
I was probably just unlucky, but the young waitress who served me mistook my question about a particular dish for an order. She brought the beer I did order, then disappeared for ages...then suddenly re-appeared with the food I didn't think I'd ordered.
As it happened, the food was perfectly ok (although I did not intend to order it, once I'd found out what it was), and reasonably-priced at less than 4 euro (July 09).
So I have now eaten '3 blaue Zipfel in Wiensud'..basically, 3 sausages cooked in wine-based sauce. I think they were fully-cooked, anyway, but the 'blaue' bit worried me (and is why I asked for a translation) because it can mean 'rare'.
Anyway, they were fine, if entirely unexpected. And the beer was good.
A limited menu, but a perfectly ok place to have a drink/meal.
......and serving local food at sound prices.
Lots of locals were eating there every time I passed, so it's clearly a good place to go. It's been there since 1594, so obviously knows how to please its customers!
There are tables outside under leafy trees (especially nice on a hot night) in the small Marienplatz, just off the main Marktplatz.
Good beer, wine etc, a menu with lots of choice and daily specials at really good prices. I a rather good 'hamburger' with fried egg, onion gravy and fried potatoes (can't remember the German name) for just over 7 euros. Although it sounds an odd combination, it really worked well and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Service was efficient, friendly and coped with my appalling German very well!
......and a very pleasant place to stop, for a drink or a bite to eat.
Their bruschetta was very tasty, and very reasonably-priced. and the beer (I had Echter weissbier) was good too. And the coffe.
They do a wide range of teas, coffees, ice-creams and snacks and serve breakfast (various types) until 4pm.
Service courteous, efficient and with good English (although I did try to speak German, honest!)
Gianni, who's from northern Italy, makes excellent Italian food to your liking. The menu is in German since most of the customers are locals, but he'd translate them and even cooks dishes based on what you'd like to eat that day. Dinner meals come with equally excellent salad.
The outdoor seats get filled quickly in summer, but there are plenty of seats inside the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Any of the menu of the day, or seafood with pasta.
Wurzburg is famous for its wines. When you arrive here by car the first thing that you can notice are the vineyards on the hills. This region has got many wine cellars where you can stop to taste it.
I found this restaurant by chance the evening I arrived in Wurzburg. The restaurant of the Post Hotel was close so I went there. In this restaurant you can breath a family atmosphere and the cook is very friendly. There you can taste good Italian dishes.
Jubilinger Restaurant is located about 3 km far from the downtown of Wurzburg. This restaurant is quite close to Post Hotel. Here you can taste good Bavaria cousine. I can suggest to try the entrecote with salad, chips and beer!!!
A cons: they don't accept credit card.
In this cafe, special product is the hot potatoes baked by special oven. You can eat it with [ how many kinds of / favorite ] sauce.
Bread is attached even if you order only soup.
Favorite Dish: This is [ since it is open at midnight till 1:00, ] a good store ,when you are hungry in the night.
On a balcony over looking the Main River, the Alte Bruecke and the Feistung Marienburg, how can you beat that? Make sure to plan ahead and get a reservation for a table outside on the balcony (preferably the upper), otherwise you may be out of luck. The wines of the Main River Valley are outstand, personal favorites are the white, silvaner and the rieslings. The ambiance and the location are the biggest point getters of this place but the food is wonderful as well.
Favorite Dish: Start with a Hefe hell and the Cream of Asparagus soup and then go for the pork shoulder! Melts in your mouth.
Weingut am Stein has a restaurant on their property that is overpriced and a little to wild and crazy for their own good. The food was interesting to say the least. Confused might be a better word. Asian-Fusion, German, ???
We ordered the prix fix menu...the wine was good! That is about all I can say about the food is that the wine was good. There was a good piece of meat in the mix of it all.
Favorite Dish: Pass and find something that feels a little more local and established in what it is trying to do as far as a menu goes.
This rstaurant is small inside and always busy. It is tastfully decorated in a semi-casual/semi-formal style. During the warm months they have several tables outside. You can see the fortress in one direction and an old churcgh inthe other. This is the best way to dine here.
Favorite Dish: I have never had a bad dish. Ask the waiter, Mimi speaks English, Italian and German, what fish they have and he will bring one out for you to see. The pastas are all great and the Veal (Kalb) Shnitzel in the lemon sauce is the best. I usually get something from the Tageskarte (daily specials). My wife likes to get the Duette Pasta, which is 2 diffrent pastas and sauces. Tell them Robert sent you. (My name is actually David, but when I first moved here I made several reservations in my best broken german and reserved them in my last name, Roberts, they have been calling me Robert ever since.)
The Nikolaushof is on top of the hill overlooking the river Main and Würzburg so you will have a great view if you make sure to book a table that is not too far in the backyard.
The Nikolaushof has several restaurants - the Seegarten being the more expensive one.
For everyone coming for a visit in summer I definitely suggest the Biergarten. There they serve reasonably priced beergarden dishes.
Attention: Closed on Mondays and all January!!!!
The "Backöfele" is a restaurant with atmosphere. Everyone I've taken there felt comfy right away. The food is yummy, they serve local dishes of very good quality. Vegetarians will surely find something as well. With the food enjoy some typical wine from the vineyards around.
The setting is also very unique - check out the website and go to Restaurant from there to the different rooms. For me it's a bit like stepping back in time and entering a typical bavarian place 100 years ago.
They also have a nice courtyard where you can sit outside.
Favorite Dish: The onion soup is the best ever. Give it a try and find out for yourself.
This is a great place to eat and enjoy an evening. It is a 5 minute walk from the Bahnhof on the juliusprommenade. The restaurant is part of a hospital for the elderly and part of the proceeds from the restaurant go directly to help fund the hospital.
The restaurant offers great fish, some raised in their own pond, awesome local wines (the domina is the best) and authentic franconian dishes (the schnecken is the best I have ever had).
The atmosphere is busy and quite loud but will not distract you from the wonderful food. this is one of my favorite places to eat in Wurzburg.
Favorite Dish: Schnecken followed by the veal steak with a bottle of their best Domina.
A delightful restaurant near the University. The pricing is very reasonable 10-12 euro per person. The garlic potatoes that come with most meals are wonderful, and the dipping sauce is even better. English and German menus are available. There is a glodfish pond in the middle of once section of the restaurant, and statues in the middle of the other. The Beer Garden is wonderful.
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is the Leg of Lamb with Spinach. The boneless meat is served in a caseroledish and coverd in melted cheeses and spices.
