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.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

The place is nice but may be a little dark. Service was not so professional, except a lady, from Serbia i think. She told to everyone what he has to do, like a regulator.
The food was good and the prices not too high.

“A little bit of Vienna in Berlin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Excellent food, excellent service...not cheap. You get what you pay for and it's worth every penny. if you are looking for classic Austrian and German kitchen of high quality in a posh atmosphere with fantastic service, this is the place for you.
The wine list is already worth it....Grüne Veltiner Smaragd !!

“So good we went there twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Delicious food and charming staff who seemed to delight in their work, their customers and their colleagues. A superb experience, particularly after a jaw-droppingly awful one at another restaurant close by. So much so, we booked again for our last night in Berlin so we left with a good memory. I agree with IAH2013 - the pumpkin soup is sublime. More than happy to pay for delicious food and good service.

“Christmasdinner at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Went there for Christmas eve with my wife and 2 kids age 9 and 11 both use to eat at fine restaurants (the only kids in the restaurant). High class and very authentic german/austrian cuisine.

Enjoyed the Christmas buffet not to compare wth any buffet I've ever had before. Soup served by the table - separate room for starters and maincourses.

Friendly and competent staff. Try the wines from Aigners own wineyard - you wont be disappointted. Bought a complet box to bring home.
