We enjoyed the Aigner after symphony. Food was excellent as was service. The desserts were the best. The weinerschnitzel was the best in town in our estimation. Beer selections were good as well. Service was efficient and English menu was available.

With one hour notice, a reservation for 14 people was easily accommodated! The staff was lovely and helpful, the food was very good. Special was the white asparagus dinners served multiple ways--especially good was the salmon and the schnitzel. The house wine was very good....More

This restaurant is definitely about the experience. The wood panelling and local feel alongside a very German menu. The food is good, but strange to my British palate. The wine was unusually good and was the best we had whilst in Berlin. Charming service and...More

We went last night to have dinner at this German restaurant. Unfortunately, the food was not as good as we had been told it would. It was not bad, but nothing to remember. This is a restaurant I would not recommend, but I am glad...More

Recommended by the concierge at the Adlon. This was certainly not a great experience. It was okay; the service was very good. The kitchen was just so-so. We had a much better "local" food at Marjellchen and Alt-Berliner Wirsthaus.

Lovely modern restaurant, the concierge recommended it on our first night. The schnitzel was outstanding as was the wine menu, although the food menu was a bit limited, everything on it looked really nice though. Would definitely return to this restaurant next time in Berlin...More

First class friendly and efficient service. Slow to bring the bill and collecting payment, but service during the meal was flawless. The white asparagus, accompanied by boiled potatoes, was simply superb! The Wiener schnitzel was OK, my wife's a lot tastier than my serving. Lovely...More

The centre 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

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

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.
