This restaurant was recommended by our concierge at the Regent. It was a short walk from the hotel to the Aigner. The servers were very attentive with our drink and dinner orders. My wife enjoyed Wiener schnitzel while I ordered the day's special, Buck (deer)....More

A very pretty, lively place in a lovely neighborhood. Gracious service, although things always seem a bit rushed to us, compared to service in the US. The food was absolutely delicious. Maybe the best schnitzel and potato salad EVER!

We really enjoyed our meal at Aigner. It's quite charming ambience and located in a pretty square. My partner had the wurst as a starter and I had the schwabisch soup, both fantastic. We had the schnitzel and the warm cheesecake for dessert. The cheesecake...More

We sat outside as it was a lovely evening overlooking the Gendarmenmarkt, although atmosphere and setting inside looked really nice. Would recommend restaurant for visitors looking for fine quality German cuisine.

A little trip back in time. Central European cuisine, generally well don though maybe a bit un-inspired at times. The only flaw is the somewhat uneven service. Not "bad," but inattentive and a little distanced at times.

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

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.
