Recommended by the concierge at the Adlon. This was certainly not a great experience. It was okay; the service was very good. The kitchen was just so-so. We had a much better "local" food at Marjellchen and Alt-Berliner Wirsthaus.

Lovely modern restaurant, the concierge recommended it on our first night. The schnitzel was outstanding as was the wine menu, although the food menu was a bit limited, everything on it looked really nice though. Would definitely return to this restaurant next time in Berlin .

First class friendly and efficient service. Slow to bring the bill and collecting payment, but service during the meal was flawless. The white asparagus, accompanied by boiled potatoes, was simply superb! The Wiener schnitzel was OK, my wife's a lot tastier than my serving. Lovely beer too.

Gotta love the Germans, they're so German. You don't know when they like you but you always know when they don't. The rest of the time they're either austere, obtuse, unfiltered or all three. We had a lovely meal of Weiner schnitzel. When in Germany .... The service was cold and hard and well German. The setting isn't the warmest... More

We had a very nice time at the restaurant. We took the wiener schnitzel, the chicken vienna style and the boiled beef in two courses from the main courses. We also tried a riesling wine which was very good. Polite english speaking staff!

Fabulous dining experience! Very lively and great food. Excellent service despite being very busy. The Austrian German menu has enough for everyone. I had a beef steak which was prefectly done.

While staying at the Sofitel Gendarmenmarkt during my last trip to Berlin I had dinner at the Aigner. It has a simple Austrian/German menu but the food turned out to be of high quality and fantastic taste. Some of the best traditional food I had in a long time. In addition Aigner has a great wine list including some from... More

Description
Aigner restaurant in the heart of Mitte Berlin enjoys views of the charming Gendarmenmarkt from its terrace and vistas of the French and German cathedrals. Aigner has furnishings rescued from the legendary Café Aigner in Vienna, from the billiard table to the modernist Thonet furniture, wine bins along the walls and mirrored ceiling, giving an air of elegant restraint. Private groups may make use of the billiard room. This is a fine restaurant and watering-hole for Berlin’s high-fliers – like former Chancellor Schröder -- though award-winning chef-owner Herbert Beltle cares little for that moniker. Instead, he concentrates on using the freshest ingredients to create excellent regional Austrian and south German cuisine alongside newer, lighter inventions. Signature dish is Tafelspitz, served in a brass kettle with haunch and shoulder of beef, veg, savoy cabbage, crème fraiche and apple-flavoured horseradish. Other dishes include ice cream of potato-leek soup with fried scallops, pink-fried calf’s kidneys in mustard sauce with potatoes, and Tete de Moine with fig mustard. Strong wine list. A few steps from the Schauspielhaus theatre.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
