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.

Perfect service, artful delicious food and a beautiful gardeny ambiance. My husband and I were certainly impressed with all the positive aspects of the restaurant, starting from the front desk who were all extremely attentive and accommodating to us, with no reservation and certainly under dressed. Worth every penny!

Nice service, presentation of food could be better. Food was interesting but it did not feel like a dinning experience. Food was nice, wine could have been better. Something was missing. Overall, very good but not excelent.

On the one hand Facil is eye-wateringly expensive, but on the other hand you do get fabulous food. On refelection I decided that this was my best ever meal. This is not an honour I award lightly. The previous holder was a night everything came together at Gidleigh Park a good few years ago, and before that it was a... More

My fiancé and I went to Facil for my birthday whilst on a short break to Berlin. We opted for the lunch menu as it was 1/3 of the price compared to dinner. All of the food was incredible and well explained, the service was perfect and whilst the restaurant itself is several floors above the mandala hotel it feels... More

One of the best restaurants I have visited to date. Our meals were warm, delicious and were of large size! Our waitress was absolutely lovely and outgoing. The rest of the staff were also very caring and made sure we were always attended to. Our waitress also realised we were Scottish! Which is rare because lot of people in Germany... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. 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 theatres 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.
