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.

Had a lovely dinner here sitting outside on a very pleasant evening. I got the schnitzel and my daughter had the veal meatballs. Both were very good! Our waitress told us to get the strudel which was off menu and what a nice ending to our meal. I found the service to be excellent and the food tasty and beautifully plated. This is a fine restaurant so a bit pricey but worth it. A good choice for a special dinner - highly recommend!

Elegant restaurant with great service and cuisine. Upscale and worth every Euro. Wines recommended were outstanding as was everything else. By all means go, but don't expect a view of the Gendarmenmarkt.

Aigner was recommended by the concierge if our hotel and he was spot on. We wanted a mid-priced German restaurant (as we’d been surprised by the number of Italian restaurants in Berlin).
It was very busy and obviously lots of locals (good sign). Inside was an interesting room, traditional and a bit quirky, but very comfortable.
We all had Wiener schnitzel, with sauerkraut and red cabbage side orders. It was absolutely wonderful but so big most of us couldn’t finish it.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
I thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Berlin.

The food was unexciting but what can you expect from a less expensive restaurant on Berlin's most exclusive square.
I had duck which came with the skin soggy instead of crisp, and a non-descriptive sauce. The potato dumpling was ok. My wife had white asparagus with potatoes in a hollandaise sauce. Our friend had a vegetarian dish which could have been anything.The much touted Horcher wines turned out to be ordinary rieslings and merlots. Our waitress was brusque at first in the Berlin traditiion although the restaurant was nearly empty but with a bit of humoring we defanged her.
