Very good place to get the best versions of traditional German cuisine - also somewhat updated and flexible. For example, since it's springtime, we had the white asparagus. It was excellent, perfectly cooked. In addition to being accompanied with the traditional ham, it was also...More

This restaurant was suggested because we asked for a "genuine old German dinner." The concierge suggested this because it was "good and close." He was half right. It was close. The restaurant was lovely and the service attentive. We both had schnitzel which was overcooked...More

I have been in this restaurant last week with some colleagues. We ate the special plate of Aigner: in italy we call it "cotoletta panata" It was very very good. Location, food, kindness of waiters/waitresses are the key points of this restaurant. Prices: medium/high level.

Ate here the last night in Berlin, had the wiener schnitzel, and it was excellent, there was just so much of it! If you and your SO are hungry for wiener schnitzel, get 1 plate and share, they are that big! Lightly breaded - tasty.

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

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.
