In the WhatsApp settings menu there is a "backup" option. I would like to know where this backup will be stored in the phone. Is it possible to restore this backup?

This backup is stored somewhere in the phone's internal memory. You can restore a backup through the WhatsApp application if your phone isn't damaged. Additionally, you can email chats to create a safe backup, but you cannot use it to restore your chats on your phone.

The backup from Whatsapp will be located on

SDCard->Whatsapp->WinPhoneBackup

Whatsapp backup folder

Is it possible to restore this backup?

Yes it is possible to restore from Backup. But restoration is only possible when installing Whatsapp as @akid said in his answer. If you want to restore a backup you will have to reinstall the app.

Upon reinstall you will get a prompt to restore message from backup. Follow the on-screen instructions.
