I had lunch here last Friday, opting for the full 8 course tasting menu and would thoroughly recommend dining here. I felt the presentation and depth of flavour throughout each course was exceptional and would genuinely struggle to pick a single fault in any one...More

Was there for a work dinner. very average and lacklustre for a 2-Michelin Star Restaurant. Service was cold and robotic. Food is salty and the duck was bad. Worst of it, at the end of the dinner, they will blatantly ask for tips. Left a...More

We celebrated my husbands birthday at Facil. The food was excellent, except for the pigeon - I should have taken the lamb. The dessert was a beautiful chocolate dream come true in the shape of a pear. And don't miss the Dom Perignon from 2006....More

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

When I was there, everyone was dressed elegantly but in different styles So, as far as I know there is not a dress code. If you go, I think it is nice to also dress nicely for a special restaurant.
