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

Menu was the highlight and the food presentation was more and better than I expected. There was very good service. Choice of wines was the only issue but it was not a bad choice just quality of what was selected more than variety. I would rate this as one of the better eating establishments in Berlin and it will be... More

...hidden, compared to all the other great food temples around Potsdamer Place. Yet it is almost perfect. The composition of the setting, the view, the room, the interior and almost all staff is the surrounding to enjoy the menu and the selected wine list. a calm fest in the middle of the day.

We had lunch today. The total package is perfect. From the amuse bouche till the praline, it was great. My desert was absolutely stunning. (Something to do with forest). If in Berlin don't hesitate.

We had a most agreeable lunch here in November 14. The food was assured and well presented. Staff professional and the room was lovely. All combined to create a great dining experience. It was all done straight, no quirkiness which is probably because it is dominated by businessfolk. The sommelier is particularly helpful.

A 2 Michelin star gourmet experience at the Mandala Hotel. Facil is set out according to Feng shui. It is very peaceful environment. The food and service is second to none.

I booked this restaurant and stayed at the mandala. We made our booking 2 months prior. Was really looking forward to it, especially because was meant to be a treat for a friends bday. I don't know why I felt a bit let down, maybe because I probably ordered the wrong dishes which were not to my taste. I had... More

Things to do Nearby

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.
