FACIL, is located in the Mandala Hotel, on the Potsdamer Platz, across from Sony Square, on the 5th floor courtyard. You enter the restaurant with a walk down a dedicated hallway that opens onto the glass enclosed stunning restaurant. Tables beautifully spaced so you're having your conversation, not your neighbors. Apparently the glass opens in Summer, but I go to... More

Facil is on the fifth floor of the Mandala Hotel in a beautiful glass "box" with only 15 tables. It was a prix five New Year's Eve menu and every course was better than the last!

I came here to try the set lunch. I ordered 4 courses for 60 Euros and this is extraordinary value for this standard of cooking. I had a beef tongue dish to start. It was light and technical and set an excellent reference point for the rest of the meal. The next course was octopus and I am told that... More

Yes. Surely. One of the best restaurants - definitely one of the very best in Berlin. I've visited this establishment twice. First time a couple of years ago when they held one Michelin star and I was very impressed. Now, some years later, they still impress, but what has happened between the first and the second star? When restaurants get... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. 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 down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
