The FACIL, Berlin's oasis of culinary culture, offers a refreshing combination of elegant lightness and pure luxury, modernity and understatement. The restaurant treats diners to the very best cuisine and it has an easygoing feel. The service is excellent and you have the chance to relax and escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life. The core of the FACIL philosophy is the lightness of being. In culinary terms, the food will melt on your tongue. The restaurant offers a selection of natural cuisine which is both unpretentious and ingenious.

A great overall experience

We were a group of 6 people who visited Facil April 13th. We had a great overall experience. We had eight exquisite dishes and wine that complimented the dishes in an excellent manner. Recommended if you are looking for a little luxury.

Our friend recommended we go to this restaurant and I had also found it on top Berlin restaurants. After being here for a few days I realized that Berlin has many 'underground' eateries which offer a much better experience than this. The food was good, not superb and the waiters and sommelier were attentive and quick to respond. The menu... More

As my professors always said, start your criticism with the good. The food tasted good and the service was extremely attentive. I would say it's a strong 3 1/2 stars. For the bad, how does a two Michelin star restaurant have a sommelier who doesn't seem to know much about wine? Additionally, the wines offered by the glass were not... More

My friend and I booked dinner here as it is one of the finest Michelin-starred restaurants in Berlin - the fact is was in the same hotel we were staying in was a bonus. As would be expected service was excellent. The amuse bouche were delightful. My main course of vension with yellow plums is one the I will never... More

Outstanding desserts - what actually made it worthwhile ... slow service (although the waitresses were extremely attentionate) ... overrated (and undersized - sometimes ridiculously so) food (nouvelle cuisine is sort of dépassée).

Recently went to Berlin for the weekend and fancied something special. Had heard good things about restaurants in Berlin and wanted a Michelin starred meal. We went on a Monday lunchtime and had the 2 course set menu. Lovely room and very light, tables spaced nicely. Little footstool for the ladies handbag, nice touch. Food was stunning and even though... More

This was the highlight diner from my last Berlin trip. And we could'nt chose a better place: it is well located in a busy neighborhood, and once you step into the Mandala Hotel building, you are getting into such a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere. We had the 6 courses night menu: right from the amuse-bouche to the desert everything was... 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.
