Only located a short walk from our hotel, we had a group dinner at the restaurant and it was very enjoyable. We had excellent service and the meal was simply delicious. I ordered the schnitzel and I would recommend it.

This is an excellent choice, if you want to have a decent meal, reasonably priced. Located in a charming central square of Berlin. Quite good selection of wines.

We walked in twice without reservations and were treated graciously, given nice tables. The wines were from the Aignier vineyards in Austria and were excellent. One night I had the best pumpkin soup I have ever eaten and the next a delightful beef tea, served with élan. Their Backhendl chicken was perfect, served hot and crunchy and their Wienerschnitzl very... More

Nice restaurant. We found free table on Friday evening without any problems. Restaurant is big but the offer not so wide. They offer about 6-8 main courses but very taisty. I took eco chicken and it was really good :)

Wnt there late on a Sunday evening on the recommendation of hotel concierge. Not disappointed. Good service, freshly cooked soups and mains with lots of flavour and quality presentation. Drinks prices reasonable given quality and class of restaurant

We choose this spot as it was perfectly located for our first night needs. A brief walk from the Berlin Marriott. Right next to the Gendarmenmarkt which was a must destination to enjoy the lights of its Christmas Market.....and Aigner's reviews suggested a great intro to regional cuisine in a comfy setting. We were not at all disappointed. Greater warmly,... More

This "traditional" place is frequently visited by travellers, the business scene, and the like - the food offered is not bad, but surely overpriced. There are many better alternatives in the neighborhood!

This restaurant is very popular and it appears essential to book. The whole experience was wonderful - the service was very efficient and the goose and red cabbage absolutely superb.

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.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
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 gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
