We went to 3 two-star Michelin restaurants in Berlin and this was the best. We had lunch which offers a better deal than dinner, and the wine pairing was great. I highly recommend this place! Although expensive it is definitely your moneys worth.

I went there with my wife and our 4 months old baby. They said it was superfine to bring a baby to the restaurant. We had a three course dinner each. Shortly said, fantastic. And the dessert I had called bonfire, is the best dessert I have EVER tasted.

Although the food is absolutely fabulous, as you would expect, being creative, flavourful and original, the personal service is what makes this whole experience such a treat. I have never received such informed, considered attention. A pleasure to be there.

My wife and I visited this restaurant at the end of October whilst on a short break in Berlin. I must say I can see why this restaurant has been awarded two Michelin Stars, the food was amazing we have never tasted such exquisite flavours before like this in our whole life. Apart from the food the service was impeccable... More

A last minute visit during lunch turned out to be one of the most enlightening gastronomic experiences in Germany. Food was impeccable in quality and presentation but also thought provoking. Service was close to perfect and very enjoyable. The bill with 4 entrees and two glasses of wine is well......

Visited FACIL for lunch in September 2016 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Everything is perfection - the welcome, the room and the food. We had the 6 course lunch menu - which was easily modified to ensure all courses were gluten free for myself. Every dish is memorable and beautifully explained by the attentive waiting staff. Not cheap but excellent... More

Went to Facil for dinner after a long week. Interior is excellent. Service was excellent, staff is very friendly. Ordered salmon and while waiting asked them to bring black tea. Teapot came with tap water (very distinctive limescale aftertaste), which is probably ok for a cheap fast-food chain but I didn't expect it from restaurant like that. Asked them to... More

The restaurant setting and interior is excellent, staff is very friendly and helpful, but the food... It is as if the chef was forced to be innovative and tried it all at once. My wife had four course meal, and it seemed like same spice was used in every meal (and we unfortunately did not like it). In addition, the... More

My wife and I were here yesterday, and I can still feel the tartar in my head. We're not into wine, so I cannot comment on that. The food however is superior. The dishes are beautiful, and are very tasty. We actually tried around 8 dishes. If you have one thing to try, I would go with the tartar, which... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

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.
