I am a lover of the lunch courses which the restaurant offers from Monday to Friday at reasonable prices. You will be pampered by a three course menu at star-level which is supplemented by different ameuse-geules, great breads and afterwards sweets and chocolades. The atmosphere...More

For our last night in Berlin we tried this highly recommended venue. The room is gorgeous with the view to a tranquil garden, interior water features, and Murano vases on each table. The staff was mostly inviting and the sommelier extremely accommodating. We opted for...More

The food was fantastic as was the service. Whilst quite full for a Monday evening, it was relatively quiet. Possibly reflecting the more subdued character of the restaurant. The food was - as noted - fantastic.

The set lunch on weekdays is fantastic value for money. All dishes were excellent and of clearly two star level. The best were the desserts we thought.

Recently dined at Facil and found the food and ambiance quite good. The experience was marred however, when I received the bill. It was 50% more than I had anticipated. We all ordered the 4 course fixed price menu. Two of us inquired as to...More

We stayed at the Mandala Hotel in Berlin for 6 nights, and elected to splurge at the hotel's restaurant, Facil, on our last night. The space is impressive and very comfortable for private conversation. We elected to try the tasting menu without wine pairing. Service...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop

When I was there, everyone was dressed elegantly but in different styles So, as far as I know there is not a dress code. If you go, I think it is nice to also dress nicely for a special restaurant.
