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

Staff is fantastic We had 5 courses Beautiful presentation and flavors Preferred the fish courses and flavors minus the blackened cod ( not as noteworthy as rest) Pork was excellent too. Did the pairing and wished he would ask our preference. It was 4 whites and I felt we could have moved red one course earlier. There was one point... 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

Was very good, but no special surprises, almost all expected. The sommelier could have been more talkative, he didn't say much about the wine, we're used to French ones who tell the the story of the grape and how it felt and the mood it had when it was caught .. they made us dream. With this one we had... More

I appreciate that it is one hell of a statement. But both my wife and I would standby it. We have eaten in some of the best restaurants in Dubai, London and New York but this tops it. They say it has two Michelin stars if they haven't they should have. Ok so it isn't cheap but I'm putting this... More

So many "fine dining" restaurants fail to live up to expectations. Facil is an exception. From the moment you enter, through the experience of ordering, being served and simply sitting back and enjoying the multiple dishes (including many amuse bouches) you know you are here to be spoiled. I started with the intention of making a mental note of the... More

The lunch was most reasonably priced - food was great, service was excellent without being intrusive, and the surrounding bamboo plants was lovely and calming.

It doesn't take long to see/taste why this is one of the best places to dine in Berlin, and how it received it's two Michelen stars. We were lucky enough to get a table on the terrace on a very hot summer's evening. It's a very contemporary beautifully designed space. Everything we ate - from the canapes to petit fours... More

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.
