The star of FACIL is the food: innovative, clever, and excellent. Most memorable was a tartar of beef on a bed of shallots (confit, I think) with caviar on top, which was worth the visit. Also superb was a dish I can hardly even describe with crab. The fish was cooked such that it melted in the mouth. Another beef... More

We make a reservation and this restaurant requires you to leave your credit card details as no show up means they can still charge your card. We arrived on time and we were really impressed with the food and the service was excellent. Every dish had it's signature taste and we loved this. Very cosy and nicely set up restaurant.... More

For a top place it was, surprisingly, not so difficult to get a table for lunch. Huge, airy place with lots of place and a light modern, decor. Food was sublime, we particularly enjoyed the cold mackerel soup with oriental herbs and the guinea fowl main course. The service, though totally correct, is a bit stiff and somewhat over-attentive, but... More

The place is very good. The 8 course menu was a good choice, if the time allows. Amazing combination of tastes. Service could be more relaxed and show less arrogance, even though the place is successful.

Wonderful food and attention to our table was stylish and very on the ball without being obtrusive. The design and flow works well but every diner looked the same and as such the ambiance was a little boring and lacking. Was I any different? Probably not! I wouldn't come back in a few weeks when I come back to Berlin... More

Nice dining room, correct service - not too talkative - which is the way I like it. Most of the tables were booked for lunch but the staff managed well to attend to every table as I could see from my position, overlooking the entire dining room. And they did not forget about me even though I was a "loner"... More

Best restaurant during our weekend in Berlin Facil was the full package, lovely setting and AMAZING food. From the moment I booked on the phone until we left, staff make their best effort to be courteous, attentive. They also were knowledgeable about food and wine. The food was so good I nearly forgot to drink the paired glasses of wine.... More

Facil's taste and culinary presentation is amazing, but I found the atmosphere and attentive service to be the best aspects of the meal. I found it difficult to find because from looking at the pictures, it appears this restaurant is on the main floor with a gorgeous garden despite actually being five stories up. The service is also attentive without... More

We had a very good time at Facile. The restaurant room with its glass walls on all sides, and a view to a bamboo garden, is very nice and has plenty of space between the tables. The cuisine at Restaurant Facile skillfully combines classic European creations with exotic spices and ingredients, creating an interesting and unique dining experience. At the... 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.
