Food here was good - authentic and hearty portions. Everybody seemed to be eating schnitzel, so we had the same. Very tasty! However, indifferent service, and lack of card paymets slightly let this place down.

Austria had been highly recommended to us. We had a fine table, service was fine, but the wienerschnitzel was simply too big even we both ordered the small one. I wonder whether this size of meat is in accordance with the "dont waste food" movement. Half of mine went direct out again - even if we had not had lunch!

Waitress as very friendly, not an extensive menu but what they had was typical Austrian food of good quality and quantity. If your looking for a hearty filling meal you will definitely find it here. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Poor service, nothing to eat if you're veggy or vegan (well, they do have a poor salad on menu) and on top of it all, located in a dirty neighbourhood, and very expensive. My partner for the trip to Berlin ate the winner schnitzel and said it was excllent. I woulnd't know, because I'm veganm, but my personal overall experience... More

Not worth the taxi ride out to Kreuzberg. Have had better Wiener Schnitzel in London. Mine was tough, though to be fair enjoyed theirs.

Had the best wiener schnitzel ever at Austria! But be sure that you are really hungry before ordering since the big one is really very big! You can order a "small" as well should you not be all that hungry. Staff were friendly and the service was good. However note that they don't accept credit cards, just cash payment. We... More

We ate at Felix Austria and were very satisfied. Friends told us that Austria Das Original is better. No way. It is industrial, they are very old fashioned (no payments with bankcard) and not friendly at all.

Definitely a place to visit in Berlin, certainly when in Kreuzberg area. The food is original Austrian, the prices are moderate. The Wiener Schnitzel is great, but choose the size carefully! The big one is really big,

We were looking for a typical German restaurant and found the Austria Das Original. We left so pleased after a fantastic dinner. The snichtzel are the biggest we ever seen, the goat cheese salad was heavenly good. The friendly waitress gave her input to the good atmosphere in a restaurant we recommend strongly.

When in Berlin do as the Germans do and having a large, tasty schnitzel and a cold beer at this little place pretty much makes you feel like a local. Service was efficient, food was good, atmosphere was pleasant. I can't fault it. Would go again if I had the chance.

Description
For years, this place has been a must for fiends of traditional Austrian cooking, without chichi and flourishes. Here, everything is cooked by hand. The Wiener Schnitzel looms, just like before, beyond the plate. The frest country beer bubbles out of the basement. Those who can should not do wothout a sugared, cut-up pancake, the Kaiserschmarrn, with raisins.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
