We had a nice table outside. The vaitors were quick and serviceminded. We had lots of fun with them. The food was very good, and we had very good wine too. Our vaitor knew his wine. I'll go back nextgentel time in Berlin.

Really great food. Outdoor dining is awesome if you can get it. Perfect location. Servers could be a little bit nicer and more attentive, but certainly not rude. We went there twice and we never do that, so 'nuf said.

Stopped in for a quick bite to each at lunch. Very friendly, North American friendly service. Wiener Schnitzel was amazing. Very casual setting and highly recommended for tourists who want some legitimate German food.

We found the size of the restaurant and the noise level not particularly to our liking though, I will say, the weiner snitzel was delicious! Too much on the tourist trail for me.

This is the perfect place for good local and seasonal food in Berlin!! The location is nice and you can sit outside on a sunny summer day; inside is very nice as well! The food is great: try the Pot au Feu, it is fabulous! And the Schnitzel is the best outside of Austria for me. They have a wonderful... More

Service is just ok. Things are getting simple than 6 months ago. But keep good taste. I will say the best beef dishes in town.

Good service and food. A little expensive for what is provided. Food a little bland for my spicy pallet. My starter and main were served together the "soup" from the boiled beef being ladled in a bowl. Very authentic Austrian The beef was then served on a plate as the main. Great presentation and a nice experience. Not a fun... 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.

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center 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 neighborhood’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.
