A 2-Michelin-starred restaurant located in the Mandala Hotel, where we stayed. Our 8-course dinner lasted over four hours. Each dish was well prepared. Our substitution requests were accommodated without difficulties. I substituted a fish course with the steak tartare, while my husband opted to forego the tripe course in favor of an onion-themed course. We shared one bottle of German... More

Lovely tasting menu, service, and atmosphere. However, I was not blown away by this Michelin starred restaurant. I definitely recommend eating at Facil, but the intangible 'it' factor was missing that would have made it an unforgettable evening.

One of the best restaurants I have ever dine in. State of the art. Extraordinary service. We'll trained stuff. Great hospitality. Food is like a piece of art - lookers amazing, tastes - even more. Find a good opportunity, nice company - and simply enjoy.

We had breakfast there every day of our visit as we stayed in the Mandala Hotel where the restaurant is located. Excellent food, excellent service, beautifully decorated. It feels like your in a garden although you are in the middle if a very busy big city.

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
