Which is the best restaurant in Wuerzburg

A) RESTAURANTSA.1 Fine dining InternationalWeinstein.Restaurant.Weinbar .; Restaurant in the Weingut am Stein. The head chef Bernhard Reiser is a well-known star chef, known for his 'small kitchen' and the 'healthy kitchen'. In the 1990s he cooked for personalities such as Bill Clinton and Boris Jelzin at state banquets. Since 2010 he has been working as a chef for the women's national soccer team (they unfortunately won nothing at the 2011 World Cup ?!) and has been running the restaurant in Weingut am Stein, which was awarded one star in the Michelin Guide, since 2002. Noble castle restaurants; Inner courtyard of the Marienberg Fortress. Fantastic ambience, selected, upscale but by no means narrow-minded cuisine, which here in Würzburg, despite all the internationality, of course also includes a Franconian department. Very wide range from shopping for a visit to the fortress, to very chic dining out to various bookable events, the list of which would be too long here. The castle restaurants are the TIP for something special with a Würzburg flair that cannot be copied. Nikolaushof; The street behind the Käppele is very idyllic a few meters further up and tastefully furnished in several rooms and the very atmospheric courtyard, which also offers a great view over the city. The cuisine is a regional and cosmopolitan combination, which the Nikolaushof describes as "inter-Franconian". Great emphasis is placed on ingredients and freshness; the wine is also very selected. Lots of events, meetings, etc. Lots of fine culinary packages. A reservation through the website could make sense; the details can also be found here in a PDF.A.2 Fine dining FränkischHotel Walfisch; very upscale star cuisine and indeed specialized in fish. A long-established traditional Würzburg restaurant; There I once had a very interesting and noble, delicious, culinary family experience with my parents ... Backöfele; very traditional outside ambience, interior as well as inner courtyard; in addition to Franconian cuisine, everything the palate desires. Very popular for business lunches in a Würzburg atmosphere and, for example, for outside guests. It couldn't be more Würzburg! Spatially proportioned to the occasion, from a stop in the inner courtyard for coffee or pint while shopping to an upscale occasion to eat in the vaulted cellar. One is definitely not wrong in the 'Ratskeller'. Hotel Rebstock; the location of today's - nationally known - conference hotel and restaurant has a restaurant history from 1408. A somewhat gruesome contribution to the city's history is also connected with the 'Rebstock' 1558, since Wilhelm v. Grumbach is said to have made an appointment here with his hired cronies to assassinate Prince-Bishop Melchior Zobel. The restaurant has one star in the Michelin Guide under chef Benedikt Faust. Pure tradition in the Meeviertel on the left-hand side of the Main. Classic fish restaurant with the appropriate, not only Franconian range of wines. In the past, the restaurant also had a star in the Michelin Guide, which does not mean that the quality has declined today, just that the criteria have changed. The shipbuilder is my clear Franconian special tip for you! A.3 Normal, honest international cuisine It doesn't always have to be noble, expensive and exclusive. The vast majority of the restaurants in Würzburg have excellent dining options. Restaurant in the hotel at the Congress Center; Located directly on the Main on the edge of the northern old town and at the Friedensbrücke. Modern, spacious atmosphere with partly interesting views over the Main. The menu offers a wide range for all tastes of the often international guests. Casserole; can be found in the southern old town at Peterplatz. The name reveals the program, namely everything that can be gratinated. The restaurant is particularly popular with young people and students. Burger & beer; in the impressive 'Hof Friedberg' built by Joseph Greising in Bronnbacher Gasse in the middle of the old town near Dominikanerplatz (Augustinian Church), with inner courtyard, dining room, vaulted cellar. - A young company only since 2014. The name already gives it away, homemade, real burgers (not like in a fast food snack bar), spare ribs and things like the Americans come up with. Sam's Steakhaus; in the historic Riemenschneiderhaus in the Franziskanergase (near Sternplatz, Hof Oberfrankfurt with the Neumanns architecture office and the Franciscan monastery, of course). This is something for friends of Angus beef on the 800 degree (!) Hot stone. It's just super delicious, but of course not completely free. The restaurant has existed in Würzburg continuously since 1968 and is therefore one of the traditional businesses or the first steak house in the city. In recent years in particular, the owner family has invested a lot in the premises and, above all, in the historic, Gothic vaulted cellar, in which the sculptor Tilmann Riemenschneider ran his workshop, which is famous far beyond the boundaries of the bishopric between around 1485 and 1531. - A worthy and also very tasty setting for a stop! A.4 Normal, honest Franconian cuisine In this category, half of all Würzburg restaurants could be listed with a clear conscience, but this would not be the case for the visitor in the context of the need for a short recommendation benefit. - From time to time we will change the TIPS presented here or add additions. The gastronomy sector is very lively and constantly evolving. Schelmenkeller; Insider tip from the inner city of Pleich and perhaps the really Würzburgisch most Franconian of all suggestions. Very original and very tasty. Promised. - I personally have my problems here with the express affinity to fraternities, but please don't let that deter them. Old Mainmühle; Located at the right end of the Main Main Bridge in the building of the former 'Untere Mainmühle'. On two floors, a wide range of Franconian cuisine with very refined variations is offered in a really indescribably great and dense atmosphere and, especially in the evenings, in a crazy romantic way on the balconies. The 'Alte Mainmühle' is also responsible for the still young, but simply great tradition of the "Brückenschoppens", for whose atmosphere alone it is worth coming to town with friends. Lämmle Inn (formerly: Zum Weißen Lamm); dominating at Marienplatz behind the Marienkapelle at the lower market; Very well-known old Franconian inn with a long tradition since 1594. In the Lämmle there are typical Franconian, but also German dishes and snacks in a dignified, traditional atmosphere, as well as selected wines with a high level of expertise from the service. - TIP: A visit to the restaurant is very worthwhile for everyone interested in traditional Franconian dishes. at the beginning of Ludwigstrasse opposite the Mainfrankentheater. Spacious, solid, Franconian and simply furnished. Nutritious, coarse, Franconian, German and inexpensive cuisine. Another trademark is the chicken roast with street sales. - The WürzburgWiki says that the name goes back to the Engelgarten Charterhouse, which used to be located a little further to the northeast. My information is different here, namely that the economy itself is still related to the former Carthusian monastery in Tückelhausen (near Ochsenfurt). The source for this is the former owner of the former Tückelhauser Heil brewery, which also supplied this inn. Well, maybe the two statements do not contradict each other, because the monasteries were connected. READING TIP: “The Würzburg Millennium” tells the medieval history of the city on the Main from its beginnings to the eve of the Reformation. What does Würzburg have to do with the fabulous rise of the Carolingians? How did the bourgeoisie come into being and what role did the craft guilds play in it? Why are Würzburg and German imperial history inextricably linked through large parts of the Middle Ages? In 33 chapters, these and the questions about the city's history are answered much more in witty language, without the reader having to bring historical expertise or other knowledge. Experience how exciting and even entertaining the actual story is. The Würzburg Millennium, ISBN 978-3-429-04476-3, published in the 2018 autumn program of Echter Verlag, Würzburg.A.5 Best Franconian inns The 'Franconian Inn' is natural the actual archetype of the Würzburg hospitality. Basically, one would have to accommodate facilities such as the 'Gasthaus zum Stern', the 'Gasthaus zum Weisse Lamm', the 'Stachel' and all the wine bars, bakeries and so on. But after I decided to recommend a more detailed categorization - the reason is the huge development and diversity in gastronomy - very typical Franconian restaurants are summarized here, whose focus is not so much on something special in their kitchen (with which of course everything is Franconian in order !!), but more in the tradition of the concept. Inn crab apple; located at the upper end of the Julius promenade at Barbarossaplatz. very Franconian, not so large guest house with a small outdoor area and a regular audience from the Old Wurzburg. Laurel tree; Pleicherkirchgasse in the inner Pleich in a typical building from the 17th century. Very original district atmosphere. Martinsklause; in the alley that leads away from Kiliansplatz and Neumünster, opposite the rear exit of the Hugendubel bookstore. The courtyard with the entrance area does not initially give a traditional Franconian impression, which is due to a tapas bar that has now been located there. The Schiestl-Stube inside (named after the 19th century Würzburg artist of the same name) and the vault underneath change this feeling again. It is a very traditional, long-established and popular place of Würzburg hospitality. READING TIP: In the spring of 2017, the historical novel “Die Brücke über den Main” by the writer Roman Rausch was published Epoch testifying protagonist ultimately tells a settlement and city history over 3000 years. The stone bridge accompanies the most diverse people and their stories from the simple bridge toll collector up to the mighty prince-bishops and kings of the empire. It testifies to memory, knowledge and lies as well as dark secrets and mysteries. It is the bracket that connects the epochs in the history of our city and landscape that has been brought to life here in an entirely unusual way. - An outstandingly captivating novel like a painting of the times. Be sure to read! A.6 Best Italian Cuisine / Pizzeria Capri Blue Grotto; In the southern old town - opened in 1952 - it is the first and therefore of course the oldest pizzeria in Germany. Local; with outside area and in addition in the basement today a kind of replica of the 'blue grotto' on Capri. Locanda (previously L'Osteria); in the building on Alten Kranen, which was not originally restored at the end of the 1980s as part of a special concept, but reminiscent of the warehouse there, and which was initially managed as the 'House of Franconian Wine'. - This pizzeria is best known for its oversized yet super delicious pizzas at very affordable prices. Have a good appetite! Trattoria da Camelo, if you will, my personal insider tip for really Italian cuisine for you. In the 'Innere Pleich' district, which has its own independent, old character and there on the perhaps not postcard-picturesque, but honestly picturesque church square. Da Augusto; in the Herzogenstrasse, that is the small alley opposite 'Galeria Kaufhof' in the city center. The rooms are rather small, but the kitchen is also very nice. Rating: Delicious and recommendable! A.7 Best French cuisineJe suis désolé, unfortunately it has to be reported at this point that, as far as I know, there is currently no restaurant for French cuisine in Wüerzburg. One would like to say a shame or 'dommage'. - At the beginning of the 2000s there was a French restaurant in Ursulinengasse (old town quarter between Domstrasse and Neubaustrasse), but it was not accepted accordingly. What a shame ... although there is a really lively twinning between Würzburg and Caen in Normandy. On the other hand, I have heard again and again from Würzburgers over the decades (so often that it is no longer a coincidence) how difficult it was for them to get along with the French in France, since they spoke neither German nor English . - I don't want to say it explicitly, but it may be because of inner attitudes that the French cuisine of all things is not represented in this international city in the heart of Europe. If so, that would be a shame, because the story not only connects the two very closely with one another according to the Franconian name, but also the original tribes in the person of the special tribe of the 'Turons', which, however, leads too far here . Suffice it to say: The Main Franconians in particular are much more closely related to the French than the rest of Germany ... and me of course (!), Because I come from Huguenots from La Rochelle on my mother's side, but Würzburg is still part of the concept at least a little French-influenced gastronomy: Café Journal; on the lower Julius promenade. The concept and furnishings are based on the French bistro, as we know it from Paris and there in particular from the 'Latin Quarter'. That worked out quite well. The newspaper editions on the walls create an atmosphere and the range is accordingly. - For 2015 a "Je suis Charlie" will probably be added. Clochard; lower new building street a little above the Greisinghäuser. That wants to be French, but it's actually just a small, cozy pub (in which my flat share, which was nearby at the time, frequented a lot 25 years ago), where the most French are perhaps the gratinated baguettes and the tarte flambée. A.8 Best Indian or Thai es Today there are several Indian restaurants (as well as others from Central Asia) in the city, some of which are in the more distant districts / suburbs and therefore not all of them are to be ranked here. It is certain that the imaginative cuisine of Asia is successfully on the advance and it is also certain that it differs greatly from the original cuisine in Europe, as one adapts to the local taste. - For example, I have traveled all over India professionally for years and ate what I could get, apart from the offers for foreigners. No comparison. Cashmere; Located in Katharinengasse and in the vicinity of the 'Wirtshaus Lämmle' behind the Kaufhof. The restaurant represents Indian and Pakistani cuisine at the same time, which is why the restaurant is probably named after the mountain region that is disputed between the two countries. The inexpensive buffet, which introduces guests to a wide variety of interesting dishes, is particularly popular. Maharaja; Indian restaurant in the Grombühl district, to which you would have to take the tram from the city, for example. I mention it because it's pretty well known and popular. - At lunchtime there is of course a traditionally cheap daily offer on working days. Khao Gäng; Thai restaurant in Gotengasse, a side street off Augustinerstrasse, which leads south from Grafeneckart (town hall). The prices are cheap and the dishes on the menu are marked according to sharpness. There are several other Thai restaurants in town: Mae Dee, Rainbow Garden (also very famous), Mae Klong. A.9 Best Far East cuisine / also sushi After you have Asian restaurants different countries of origin 20 years ago hardly knew Chinese restaurants and 30 years ago only scattered Chinese restaurants, the Asian cuisine has now started a veritable triumph over our menu. - In the area of ​​'eating out', the popularity of Japanese sushi bars has increased significantly in recent years. Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese restaurants, there is everything and therefore only a small inner-city selection of the currently very popular sushi. May sushi; Located on the edge of the inner Pleich opposite the Congress Center. Real sushi bar, where the sushi plates pass by the conveyor belt. You then pay according to the type and color of the plates. Sumo Sushi Bar; in the city center opposite the Martinsklause described above. In addition to the classic sushi counter non-stop, Japanese cuisine and - please note (!!) - Chinese dishes. Not too often found in the station wagon. The prices are - as is usually the case in Würzburg - very moderate and the restaurant is always full and particularly popular with younger people. Take a look at the menu as a PDF here. Sushi Corner; at Barbarossaplatz at the upper end of the Juliuspromenade.Something like the special highlight is perhaps the "vegetarian sushi". Otherwise a very wide range of dishes and of course the discounted lunch menu. Kham; Located on the left side of the Main in Burkarder Strasse, right next to the Spitäle in the former inn of the 'Goldenen Gans' (today a beer garden and brewery). A potpourri of all Asian cuisine from India to Japan is offered, including sushi. Something comes together. And because it is so comprehensive, the menu is also available here as a PDF for preliminary orientation.A.10 Other national kitchensJoe's Cantina y Bar (also known as 'Joe Penas'); Mexican restaurant on the ground floor of the "Hotel Residence" at the lower exit of the Julius promenade towards the Main. The economy is a kind of combination of restaurant and pub with delicious tapas etc. When it opened as 'Joe Penas' in the early 1990s, people liked the concept as well as what was then still very exotic about the Mexican offerings; they had great success right from the start and found some quite successful imitators. The hotel and the inn are the immediate successors of the historic inn "Zum Roten Ochsen", which was here for the middle of the 13th century. is occupied. The name derives, of course, from the fact that the town's cattle market was located there on 'Ochsenplatz'. Enchilada; Located in the 'Rückermainhof', built in baroque style by Josef Greising, on Karmelitenstrasse next to the town hall complex. This is a slightly modified copy of the successful concept of a Mexican restaurant and bar. In this case, it is even a franchise chain. Fuego; Spanish restaurant and tapas bar on Juliuspromenade.Konak; Located on the last blow in the Frauenland district in the building of the historic excursion restaurant there, in which, for example, the young Richard Wagner also frequented. It is a Turkish restaurant. During the warmer months of the year, the beer garden is also very popular. Going out to eat in Greek - Of course there are also a number of Greek restaurants and pubs in Würzburg, but these are mostly decentralized in the districts and are less practical for visitors to the city. Nevertheless, a very well-known and popular Greek restaurant on behalf of everyone here: "Restaurant Hubland" at the Keesburg-Wäldchen and the sports grounds there on the Sieboldhöhe. It sounds more like the 'Uni-Kantine' (University of Hubland in the neighborhood), but it is probably the best-known Greek restaurant in town and so popular that guests actually drive to it from everywhere. Very extensive premises also for larger companies; plus an outdoor area in summer. Very solid cuisine and a wide range of Greek specialties. - I personally associate this place with the premiere celebrations of a kindergarten theater in the early 2000s. Schlemmer-Eck; Located in the city center between the Inner Graben and the Julius Promenade. This is not a restaurant, but a large takeaway and eatery, which I will mention here because it offers both Greek and Turkish dishes. In addition to the Indian-Pakistani restaurant 'Kashmir', another example of actual opposites together under one roof. - Perhaps Würzburg is a place that brings together and reconciles the culinary, cultural and social in a creative and constructive way. Well, at least that's a nice thought, you don't think so. A.11 Vegetarian Personally, I'm not a vegetarian at all and actually think that humans are by their nature - just like pigs, for example - an 'omnivore'. Today we also know very well which nutrients our body needs from carbohydrates to fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals; that is just an as well as. Nevertheless, there are many people - and their number is increasing - who, for a wide variety of reasons, avoid animal food products in various degrees or even reject them decisively. These are either religious or personal decisions that must be respected in any case; ... at least as long as this happens in a tolerant and not proselytizing or sectarian framework. This is how it should always be when it comes to questions of conviction. Würzburg also offers its guests vegetarian cuisine: Buchte; in the so-called ZE-Haus (rear part) on the edge of the inner Pleich towards the Julius promenade. Mixture of café and eatery that deliberately offers vegetarian and even vegan options for breakfast and lunch. I associate the building with a city archaeological excavation, which I probably took part in in 1988 (or 89?) Before this actually ugly ZE -House with underground parking (the name goes back to a former electronics store there; at least I think) was built. We documented the remains of Balthasar Neumann's sewer system and, above all, many remains of animal bones, from which conclusions could be drawn about the life of the people in Pleich and the adjacent cattle market. It also had to be taken into account that the medieval cattle market was in the immediate vicinity. Veggie Bros; located on the Julius promenade. Vegetarian snack for consumption on site or to take away. Since 2014 this has been a young project that calls itself Würzburg's first, purely vegetarian fast-food restaurant. Here, too, many offers are suitable for vegans.A.12 Bester Kebab The first 'Kebab House' in Würzburg opened in 1988 or '89 on Semmelstrasse as an offshoot of the neighboring Turkish restaurant 'Topkapi'. At that time, these 'kebabs' had long been established in the cityscape of larger German cities. In 1990 the owner ran a branch at the State Garden Show together with Café Klug and Gherings. There I actually learned how to prepare traditional doner kebab; not with such an electric peeler, no, with a traditional Turkish knife. Honestly true ... There are several kebab shops in Würzburg today that have names like 'Main-Döner', Sultan Döner ',' Uni-Döner ',' Pascha-Döner ',' Tigris-Döner 'and the like . According to an unconfirmed rumor, most of them are related within an extended family. - In the city just try it along the Augustiner and Sanderstrasse (opposite the Grafeneckart to the south). There are several.A.13 Best BratwurstThe topic of the 'Bratwurst' is a very special one in all of Franconia. Sausages were already made according to 101 jealously guarded recipes in ancient times. The core of it all is the classic, light bratwurst; But there is also, for example, the Würzburg fire sausage, sausages by the meter, sausages in the brew and much more. In addition to the bratwurst from the stand, the different traditional butchers in the city each offer a selection of their own recipes, which you can of course have explained to you: 'Kinky with or without' from the market, bratwurst stand within the fixed stands on the lower market with the glass roof in between . In Würzburg you can find out after a short time where the best bratwurst in town can be found, namely at this stand, what you can see in the long queue. The Franconian as such is more reluctant to make absolute statements. An exception is made here. Try the bratwurst (from our own production!) And do the test with the question about a bratwurst, they will send you to exactly this stand. MyWurscht, street sales and small eatery. - What is special here is the degree of spiciness of the sauces and seasoning, which probably go to infinity. Especially popular with young people who just like to push their limits.
