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.

Quality of the cuisine and service: Top. But the restaurant lacks adequate heating system. Too bad, we went out frozen.

We went to 3 two-star Michelin restaurants in Berlin and this was the best. We had lunch which offers a better deal than dinner, and the wine pairing was great. I highly recommend this place! Although expensive it is definitely your moneys worth.

I went there with my wife and our 4 months old baby. They said it was superfine to bring a baby to the restaurant. We had a three course dinner each. Shortly said, fantastic. And the dessert I had called bonfire, is the best dessert I have EVER tasted.

Although the food is absolutely fabulous, as you would expect, being creative, flavourful and original, the personal service is what makes this whole experience such a treat. I have never received such informed, considered attention. A pleasure to be there.

My wife and I visited this restaurant at the end of October whilst on a short break in Berlin. I must say I can see why this restaurant has been awarded two Michelin Stars, the food was amazing we have never tasted such exquisite flavours before like this in our whole life. Apart from the food the service was impeccable... More

A last minute visit during lunch turned out to be one of the most enlightening gastronomic experiences in Germany. Food was impeccable in quality and presentation but also thought provoking. Service was close to perfect and very enjoyable. The bill with 4 entrees and two glasses of wine is well......

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.
