Great setting and divine food. We had a mix of the tasting menu and the lunch menu between the 5 of us. The lunch menu really is tremendously good value and the ability to choose which courses you want and thus eat with people having the tasting menu is a great idea. Wine list is very good: we had a...

As soon as we stepped out of the lift knew we'd been here before and had a great experience - it lived up to the memory this time. We chose to find Facil on the basis of a review magazine, we had no reservation but walked in for lunch which seemed to surprise but not phase the Maitre D'. The... More

Surprise romantic lunch there, made extra special by the amazing service by the attentive staff. The attention to details was superb, to the point where my handbag got its own here stool to sit on! The food, of course, was brilliant and beautifully presented, the wine recommended by the sommelier was perfect.

From the moment we've entered to the restaurant until the moment we get out, the same feeling was holding us, feeling that we've arrived to a fancy place with professional service and heavily tasty food. I recommend for lunch if you want to enjoy from 2 mechelen stars resturant with reasonable budget.

Had a lunch on Facil. Restaurant and service is the best and most elegant we have seen in Berlin. Food was fantastic, nice decor and zen atmosphere, 2 course lunch menu was around 35euro, it was a good value for money for a 2 Michelin star restaurant. Definitely recommend for Berlin trips

Nice restaurant, very good food with wonderful presentation with the worst sommelier I have ever seen: rude to me when I made a question about the service, giving moral judgments, teaching nothing about the wines and showing arrogance to the guests. I am a wine collector, I have been in many michelin star restaurants and all sommeliers were very, very... More

We went there at lunch time on a wednesday, the place was very quiet but the ambience in the outside terrace area was great. Beautiful set up, very light and tranquil with the sound of running water in the background. The sommelier was first class, recommending some perfect wines to acompany our meal, the waiters professional yet good humoured, a... More

My wife and I enjoy good food and have been fortunate enough to have eaten in great restaurants around the world. For the past half dozen years on our annual trip here we have always had excellent food in Berlin but our first two choices were closed on Sunday and Monday so we chose this place as a reliable Michelin...

Facil is a star Michelin restaurant and so expensive, but the food is delicious, the service is perfect, the ambient nice. You shoud make reservations, if you do not want to expend too much, go there for lunch, they have an executive menu, it is worth each penny.
