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.

Situated in the lovely Gendarmenmarkt, the menu is solid and traditional and there was a noisy buzz and good atmosphere.

"The best Original Wiener schnitzel" in Berlin. Really??? Well, we tried both:
Viennese schnitzel from saddle of German veal and the ‘Aigner Schnitzel’ made with saddle of ‘Saalower Kräuterschwein’pork. Both were dry, cold, and tasteless. This place pretends to be a fine dining restaurant. Well, let me give you a fair reference point. Those of you who tasted schnitzel in Figlmüller restaurants (they are less sophisticated than Aigner) in Vienna, know the real taste of good schnitzel. Aigner's schnitzels can't even be compared. One more observation. We had a very early dinner at 17:30 before the concert and didn't want to order any wine. The waiter was openly and rather impolitely disappointed.

Lovely consume, Wiener schnitzel and steak. Quite busy on a Saturday night with locals and not tourists so that’s a good sign

This is a classic if you want a schnitzel or veal meat balls. Both great dishes. Service is a little slow to arrive. But overall a very good place and experience in Berlin.

We arrived with a reservation and was seated at a nice window table but unfortunately the woman sitting at the next table had a very strong smelling fish and we asked to relocate and they obliged. Meal proceeded nicely from there and my duck was quite nice and my wife’s rabbit outstanding. We shared a desert and left happy and satiated for a very reasonable price.
