Everything was perfect, food, service and atmosphere. Chef has a good imagination. Great location and the prices were not that high. Will come back.

First diner experience in Berlin- was fantastic! Food is delicious and uses a combination of traditional ingredients with a twist of vegetables, herbs and spices and different textures. All dishes were fantastic. Excellent wine selection of wines. Impeccable and friendly service. Great decor and relaxed ambiance. A must.

This is a real treat, and I especially recommend coming for lunch, which is excellent value for food of this quality. The restaurant has recently been awarded its second Michelin star, which is entirely justified. The dishes are beautifully presented, with great attention to detail, and all of them are delicious. There is an emphasis on traditional German ingredients, but... More

We had lunch at Facil and absolutely loved it. The set menu comes at a reasonable price and it is very much worth it. Each dish is so beautiful to see that you almost don't want to eat it! The portions are also a good size so you don't feel like it's all for show. The atmosphere is very pretty... More

As we were expecting, when having lunch at a 2-star restaurant, we had some wonderful tasty creations, beautiful platings, excellent wine pairings and a relaxed but attentive staff. A four course lunch in this range with a couple of glasses of wine sub 170€ for two is a quite good deal. I give it only four stars because 1) we... More

We were only in Berlin for a couple of days and wanted to eat somewhere special. The hotel its based in looks a little standard but the setting of the restaurant is great. Staff are personal and attentive, the food is great and I'd definitely recommend if you're a foodie looking for something special. We had the tasting menu and... More
