I undoubtably share other users' opinion: gigantic and tasty austrian dishes, with a very good price. Perfect for a dinner with friends.

A German friend took us here; we'd been told about the gargantun size of the schnitzel, and everything we'd heard was true and then some. I had the 'kleine' schnitzel; it could comfortably sustain 3 people. Or, in my case - one Berlin Marathon runner! "Doggie bags" of foil-wrap for those unable to finish seemed to be the norm. I...

They say that it's the largest in Berlin.. I'd say it's the largest I've seen anywhere! I've a good healthy appetite, but i was unable to finish more than a third. Luckily, and surprisingly, they allowed a 'doggie bag', which I gratefully took, and which provided me two more meals. The picture above is accurate! An additional benefit is that... More

My personal opinion it is the wiener schnitzel look and tasty good. Otherwise you had to keep space free in your stomach before, because it's super big piece of meat. Also potatoes are good but I personally don't like the strudel. At least service was perfect.

If you're hungry and are not a vegetarian I highly recommend this place. I love a good schnitzel and this is the place to have the biggest and best of Berlin. They only accept cash.

A dinosaur fried schnitzel (Just jocking, it's pork :P ) A nice and sympathetic Austrian man in Berlin. An old (too old) oriented restaurant which let you feel inside a mid XX century novel. These two ingredients producing the Louis Experience. Honest pricing according to the 1.2 kgs of meat upon 200 grams of baked potatoes. Good beer. Please, the... More

We had the biggest schitzel in Berlin indeed, and the wienna schnitzel. The second one was really tasty (smaller though) and i think the meat was not pork but beef. Generally and the pork schnitzel was ok but i was really disappointed by the potatosalad. Beers were so so, staff was very good. Prices expensive.

Went on a Monday night, quite early. Not too busy. Set on an attractive, quiet square. Very helpful, lovely blond English speaking waitress, English menus too. Possibly the largest piece of meat I've ever been served. The big schnitzel is probably too big to be honest - have the smaller one, it's still too much! Great food, well served at... More

Neighborhood Profile
No Berlin neighborhood is more popular with the young and jet-set crowd than the old worker's district of Neukölln. With so many Turkish settled here, the area became known as "Little Istanbul." Today the percentage of foreigners is still high and visitors still frequent the Turkish shisha bars. In the daytime, they also visit the designer shops and sit by the canal in one of the street cafés up and down Westerstrasse or at Maybachufer, having a beer and waving to the sightseeing boats as they float by. But at night, Neukölln is dominated by increasingly young, alternative, and international crowds. This is particularly evident in the northern section of the district where there are many bars, funky clubs, galleries and restaurants. There, the night never seems to end.
