I just want to remark that this is a 2 michelin star restaurant and I have no doubt that the food might be very good as well as their table service. We had a booking for Friday lunch to celebrate my b-day and was really looking forward to it as the head chef of 5 by Paco Perez (also in... More

Excellent food; great service. Initially ordered the two coarse meal, as we figured that we wouldn't need dessert at lunch; but changed our mind and ordered the third - the 2nd best decision we made that day. The first was going to Facil in the first place.

Dinner reservation was made a month in advance but on arrival, there was no record. I was able to show emails confirming my exchange with the restaurant but to no avail. Somebody somewhere had cocked up with our booking! The front of house chap was mortified. Luckily for us one table was a no show so we took their place.... More

What can I say about this place? Amazing They made a big fuss over me for my birthday with complimentary desserts and numerous petit fours and Amuse Bouche. I had the pork which is by far the best pork dish I have ever had in my life. I have been to numerous michelin star restaurants but this takes some beating.... More

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...
