Very good Austrian food. Very good service. Worth the price. Recommend to everyone. We had beef stew and schnitzel and beer of course, enjoyed it very very much!

This is a good austrian restaurant, not great. we had a nice evening there, although it was a little empty. the reason for that is probably the prices, which are quite high for this type of basic austrian/bavarian cuisine (the level is what the germans...More

The prices are definitely a bit steep for the neighbourhood, but the both of our tried dishes (their schnitzel with potatoes and asparagus, and the fried chicken) were good, with the chicken maybe being slightly better even (it came with a mesmerisignly good cucumber salad...More

Austria is a cosy Austrian restaurant in Kreuzberg. I had a classic "Tafelspitz" that was huuuge. And the Wienerschnitzel my friend ate was even bigger. The Tafelspitz was ok, not more. But I still recommend this popular place.

Good portion of Schnitzel but average potato salad (tasteless) and cucumber salad. The Schnitzel is big and thin with a crispy crust and really tasty. But the rest is disappointing and ridiculous expensive, 4.90€ for half a Liter cordial - really? Water and Sirup is...More

We lived just around the corner from this restaurant for six months. Neighbors raved about how fantastic the schnitzel was! They were absolutely correct! The price may seem high, but the product you receive it worth it! The service is very typical for Germany &...More

Food here was good - authentic and hearty portions. Everybody seemed to be eating schnitzel, so we had the same. Very tasty! However, indifferent service, and lack of card paymets slightly let this place down.

Austria had been highly recommended to us. We had a fine table, service was fine, but the wienerschnitzel was simply too big even we both ordered the small one. I wonder whether this size of meat is in accordance with the "dont waste food" movement....More

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s
and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today

For years, this place has been a must for fiends of traditional Austrian cooking, without chichi and flourishes. Here, everything is cooked by hand. The Wiener Schnitzel looms, just like before, beyond the plate. The frest country beer bubbles out of the basement. Those who can should not do wothout a sugared, cut-up pancake, the Kaiserschmarrn, with raisins.
