The restaurant is immediately next door to the Sofitel & hotel patrons are given priority. The food was delicious, well prepared & quite typical German cuisine. Service was prompt

This was our favourite choice on the Gendarmenmarkt, the cooking and presentation was very good indeed. The service was friendly, not too formal or stuffy. They specialise in traditional food, prepared with care. The wine list is largely their own brand/vineyard and the bottle of...More

A good place to sample German-Berlin cuisine. Very popular with locals as well as concierges. Even if you are not crazy about German food you should try it and this is certainly a meritorious place. People marvel about the Schnitzel.

We ate here our first night in Berlin because it was next to our hotel. It appears to be very popular with local people; we were lucky to get in. The service and food were very good. They serve German-Austrian food with locally sourced ingredients....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

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.
