While staying at the Sofitel Gendarmenmarkt during my last trip to Berlin I had dinner at the Aigner. It has a simple Austrian/German menu but the food turned out to be of high quality and fantastic taste. Some of the best traditional food I had in a long time. In addition Aigner has a great wine list including some from... More

We had initially reserved a table at Borchardt across the road from Aigner but since the restaurant management at Borchard was extremely unprofessional and obnoxious, we decided to try Aigner instead - and we were not disappointed! The restaurant was full but the host advised us that he could get us a table in 15 minutes and suggested we wait... More

The waittress suggested that we would have the schnitzels because they are the best in town. So we did. She also recommendes the housewine Riesling. Everything was fantastic! Also the house grappa is worth to try!!

Found this place on our last night in Berlin. Located close to the Hilton hotel. They have a very good selection of wines that are local. Must try the cured ham appetizer that is shaved right next to your table. We were not disappointed with any of our selections from appetizer to dessert! The staff gave us several menu selections...

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.

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.
