I had the opportunity to visit this restaurant with some colleagues from work. What a treat is was! The views of the valley and lake below are spectacular. We sat outside of course and enjoyed the view as well as the food. I had fish and I recommend you tell them to remove the head and the skin beforehand. I didn't expect that and for me that is a real turn off. Once they brought it back cleaned I enjoyed it a lot.

This is a very authentic Portuguese restaurant with an excellent selection of dishes, there are also Portuguese beers and wines available to accompany your meal. The portions are huge and delicious and at about €15 for a main they’re really good value for money.Staff were efficient and friendly. This is definitely worth seeking out if you find yourself in Backnang.

I loved this restaurant! They have to-go options. The service was quick and the waiters were nice. The food was delicious, too. We had half a rotisserie chicken and a salad. The dressing to the salad was light and flavorful. The chicken was a little too over-seasoned in some places on the skin but otherwise was yummy. The atmosphere was bright, with a lot of windows leading outside. Just a few minutes from the train station, and a few minutes the other direction from the Residenz, Wurzburg.

Alt Hall

Reviewed By sherbear248

I’ve been to Alt Hall several times and each time I’ve been, the food has never disappointed me!Alt Hall’s cuisine is Greek. Although I haven’t had food in Greece yet, I imagine they would taste rather similar!Menus are in German and English so it’s easy enough to find what you want. They also have a wide selection of dishes - almost every meat type you can think of, they have it.I’d recommend their seafood dishes - the calamari and grilled octopus are simply delicious and cooked perfectly resulting in tender dishes instead of rubbery ones which tend to happen when you overcook these meats. Even the salmon I had in the fish platter was amazing!We also shared a meat platter - the lamb and beef were cooked well, with a slight pink in the centre. Also very tender with a nice chargrill taste.Each time I’ve been to Alt Hall has been an enjoyable experience and would definitely head back again the next time I’m in Schwäbisch HallSher A, thank you for your review.

Trattoria Pane E Vino Da Nonna Lucia

Reviewed By djw2000

As a long-time resident of Backnang, I had noticed Pane e Vino come but had neverbeen inside. There are plenty of Italian places around and, from outside, this new one didn't look amazing. Then my wife went and came back with the highest praise...I've now been three times and, well, appearanaces can be deceptive!The concept is that there is no menu and the meals are based on whatever's available that day. You'll be told what's in offer. No dumping of menus here. And that's half the fun...having to listen and choose.The food is a dream. Always fresh (it has to be!), very high quality and utterly delicious. The wines are great too. Service is excellent. Rather than some snooty waiter being condescending, you have the boss in normal clothes and he's extremely friendly. Indeed, on my most recent visit, he even stuck around for 10 minutes to talk!Though unusual to be told what there is rather than read it, it's fun. Don't be in any hurry to get away - you wouldn't do that at a friend's house and that's the idea - fresh cooking takes a little time to do (nothing precooked here).This is the best Italian restaurant I've been to in Southern Germany and you'd be daft to miss it!

Entenback

Reviewed By DaveNKent

This was our second visit to Entenback and hopefully won't be our last. We were served, as before, by the owner/manager who's English is excellent and he even understands our sense of humour. I had a dish translated as three various steaks. They were beef, veal and lamb. All were perfectly cooked and amongst the most tender pieces of meat I have ever had. The local white wine he recommended was also excellent
