I visited with my brother for the lunch menu. The restaurant is located on the 5th floor of the Mandala Hotel in a courtyard surrounded by trees. There is also a tranquil garden terrace for summer. Their lunch menu changes frequently based on the availability of the ingredients. The stand out dish for me was the beet root with yuzu... More

I suspect I'm being a little harsh for only giving 4/5, but FACIL didn't really blow me away as I was hoping it would. The restaurant itself is a stunning place, perfectly relaxing. I only had 3 courses which, with amuse bouche and petit fours, was good value for money at 51 euros. The food was all impeccably presented with... More

We had a wonderful dinner at FACIL, a Michelin 2 star restaurant. Everything was top notch - service was impeccable and the tasting menu was creative and delicious - excellent wine pairings. Well done!

Was an unforgetable night. The summellier is a great proffessional. The foie and salmon was very taste, all the dishes to try before the mains were awesome and the special steak was the best cooked I never ate. Expert and very good service. The desert chart is very original.

I'm not sure if the Michelin star was given for service or food but both were very good and worth the price for lunch. The restaurant is not big, but it is clean and modern. The food will not disappoint. The service was second to none.

The restaurant is well-lit, modern and comfortable (and especially practical if you're staying in the hotel). The welcome was warm and we were seated immediately. However, the menu was overly complicated and I found the idea of having four or five dishes daunting. So I ordered three, two of which were unremarkable, while the third was quite a good dish...

If you are looking for a good place for a lunch. FACIL is ideal. The service was attentive but not over so. The advice was excellent. We enjoyed our anniversary and am grateful to my German friends for their good counsel.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
