We had an excellent lunch at this place. Very well and elegantly designed dishes, quality ingredients. All of our dishes were in harmony, not overcomplicated or pretentious.
Loved every bite. Professional and friendly service.
Well worth it on every regard

As we were expecting, when having lunch at a 2-star restaurant, we had some wonderful tasty creations, beautiful platings, excellent wine pairings and a relaxed but attentive staff.
A four course lunch in this range with a couple of glasses of wine sub 170€ for two is a quite good deal.
I give it only four stars because 1) we found the waiters not being quite sharp (keeping on speaking German to us, not knowing the menu too deeply, being a little slow on refilling water glasses) and 2) the whole experience was too much what I expected. I was simply neither very surprised nor totally blown away.

We were only in Berlin for a couple of days and wanted to eat somewhere special. The hotel its based in looks a little standard but the setting of the restaurant is great. Staff are personal and attentive, the food is great and I'd definitely recommend if you're a foodie looking for something special. We had the tasting menu and they were very accomodating and changed the menu to accommodate my pescatarian wife.

Facil offers a great value lunch offering of 1, 2 or 3 courses. It's the best way to try these wonderful Michelin starred restaurants without breaking the bank.

Went with a friend and from the first greeting to the last, every person we encountered was super friendly and helpful. Service throughout the meal was consistently thoughtful and attentive.
The food was marvellous. Light, tasty and visually appealing.

Definitely would recommend Facil and already looking forward to going back there!

When you go to a Michelin-starred restaurant (and this one has 2) you expect something special, in the combination of flavours, the innovation of the dishes, the ingredients... The 8 course tasting menu was good, not excellent, (one dish was not to my taste at all, but that can happen i suppose); in short not what I expected for such a high price. The service was slow (it seemed they had difficulty serving our group of 9 all at the same time) even though we all but 2 had the same menu. 8 dishes is already a lot (too much for my taste), however with such a slow service it became quite a drag.

The atmosphere is nice of you like a bit of show, in summer it must be nice with the sliding doors open; however you do notice you are in a hotel when you get to the restaurant.

Would not spend my private money there.
