Amongst our specialities one can also find a variety of vegetarian dishes that have the Austrian nuance of sweet and picant.

The restaurant was a bit busy and hectic, but the staff copes with it very well. The schnitzel itself was very tender and tasty.

I booked this restaurant after reading a bloggers review of it and would say I was not disappointed. It's definitely for a special night our or a night at the theater. The inside of the restaurant has a nice elegant fell and friendly service. I had read its one of the best Schnitzels in the city and it was special. I loved it. My partner had the Zwiebelrostbraten which our 2 dishes seemed to be the 2 most popular and both fabulous. Dinner and drinks will run about 35 Euro each and up with a dinner plate around 20 Euro. We went on Valentines Day and for us it was a wonderful night out. We also had some wonderful desserts too. I recommend for a special night our, entertaining out of towners and want a bit of atmosphere/class.

My uber-foodie friend was right! Recently went on a schnitzel tour in Berlin (Jolesch, an old fave; Lutte und Wegner; Fritz Austria on Bergmanstr.) and Ottenthal was the best, hands-down. Although Fritz Austria serves a mean cucumber salad with theirs, along with potato side. The quality of the meat is beyond compare. Reservations a must. Highly recommended.

This restaurant is one of three in a short stretch of Kantstrasse just around the corner from Hampton by Hilton Berlin City West. I will write a review of Wiener Beisl adjacent; on this visit we didn't try the third place (Paris Bar) partly because of the recent adverse reviews on Tripadvisor but I did notice that it was always fairly full in the evenings- so perhaps on our next visit to Berlin? Ottenthal is a comfortable and pleasant restaurant that serves Austrian cuisine. We settled on the three course set menu which included a pumpkin soup, Wiener schnitzel (with the inevitable potato salad) followed by apple strudel. Everything was carfully prepared and I would go as far as to say that the potato salad (of which I am not overly fond) was one of the best I have had over the years. We took the suggested (Austrian) Riesling wine which was OK rather than memorable. Service throughout was pleasant and tried hard to please. I would dine again at this restaurant when we are next in this area.
