Lovely restaurant for a special occasion. My wife and i dined there while on a recent trip to Berlin. Food was amazing. Each course was an absolute delight - presentation was superb and taste matched. We had 7 course menu (skipped one course) on the best of kempf menu. Setting was lovely and place had a good atmosphere. The Sommeliere... More

We were enjoying the "Best of Kempf" menu during the Xmas Break. We mixed some of the vegetarian options into our menu. Nibbles and surprises were were good, but not more. Black Cod with deconstructed salted pickles and almond milk was quite interesting. The gras carp with vienniese fish soup (or foam) and black truffle was excellent. With rock octopus,... More

Overall you really cannot complain about the quality of the dishes. It's top notch and well thought off. Our starters were OK but our main dish and desserts were of exceptional quality really showing why this restaurant has two Michelin stars... In short the bill is for sure at the higher side and what you get is worth it but... More

This fancy and elegant restaurant on the Potsdammer Platz is probably one of the best restaurants in Berlin. It has 2 Michlein stars and probably deserves the third! Try their tasting menue. 4 dishes are enough,since the Cheff will send you extra surprises. I most liked the Feasan and the desert. Quite expensive, be ready to spend over 100 Euro... More

Second time dining here, previously was dinner and only one michelin star. Unfortunately, as our evenings were already arranged, we were only able to make it to lunch. Both opted for 3 courses and matching German wines. A couple of amuse bouches got the taste buds working. Presentation, taste and wines were all excellent, as too was the service. Polite,... More

My boyfriend and I dined at Facil at the end of November 2014 and it was one of the best meals we have ever had. The two Michelin stars are very, very well deserved. The food: We ordered beef tartar and mackerel with foie gras to start and the flavours and presentation was absolutely spot on. Veal and beef shoulder... More

I turned up just after opening at 7 pm without a reservation and sure enough there was one place available! I am surprised how often this approach works at high end and popular restaurants, but perhaps it helped being on my own since I was led to a table at which two places would have been a little bit of...

Facil is the Michelin starred restaurant of the Mandala hotel in Berlin. The first time we went dining there, the evening was a complete surprise. I mean, knowing what traditional German Cuisine usually means ... Every time we went back, we never were disappointed. Combinations of flavours, textures, ever perfect wines ... Awesome. Don't forget to make a reservation when... More

This is a great place for a special meal. My family went here for our special meal in Berlin and it was a fabulous choice. The place is on the roof of a hotel; the ambience is memorable. I felt we were dining in a gorgeous greenhouse with a great view. Most of us had the 4 course tasting menu;... More
