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

Facil, one of two eateries in the first rate Mandala hotel, is swell for breakfast but underwhelming at dinner. Too many little tasties served before and during dinner. Dishes are over sophisticated. And the bill is easily a minimum of 100 Euros per person. While we enjoy a really special meal, for which we are willing to pay, this, unfortunately... More

I had the pleasure of having a 4 course lunch from the dinner menu. The service was exceptional and the food very innovative. Fantastic value for lunch in highly rated restaurant. I highly recommend it and will definitely return again.

Delicious food, very friendly staff. Except for the sommelier when we first ordered a beer. When we ordered the wine menu he became friendlier. A bit pricy, but worth it. Especially having lunch here as an alternative for dinner. Jeans are allowed and no tie required, which makes it a bit more easy going.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood 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 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.
