Went for dinner with my wife who is gluten intolerant. From start to finish the service and experience was excellent. The atmosphere, despite being within a hotel, feels tranquil as there are water features and plants throughout the restaurant. The food and wine was perfectly chosen and served and everything was made gluten free to accommodate my wife. A really... More

My friend and I stayed at the Mandala and had the best meal in Berlin at their Facil Restaurant. Everything was top notch. We were as impressed with the food as well as the service. The staff were very attentive yet unobtrusive. We noticed they circulated among the tables like a well choreographed team. It had been a most memorable... More

Visited in lots and lots of high end Michelin star restaurants worldwide. This one is truly one of the best. Every single aspect of this place is implacable. Ambiance, service and food. Definitely one of the very rare places that I would be eager to come back for another unforgettable evening.

I came here for dinner and it was a nice change from all the heavy food that Berlin offers. The restaurant itself is beautiful and very relaxing. There's a courtyard in the middle and all the walls and floors are white, so it's a clean and modern place. Great setting for a date or a quiet (but not too quiet)... More

We went here on our last day in Berlin. Everything about it was brilliant. The restaurant is on the 5th floor of a hotel. When you arrive you're greeted by attentive and courteous staff. They were extremely helpful in discussing our menu options and wine to accompany the dinner. The place itself feels less like a restaurant and more like... More

I visited with my brother for the lunch menu. The restaurant is located on the 5th floor of the Mandala Hotel in a courtyard surrounded by trees. There is also a tranquil garden terrace for summer. Their lunch menu changes frequently based on the availability of the ingredients. The stand out dish for me was the beet root with yuzu... More

I suspect I'm being a little harsh for only giving 4/5, but FACIL didn't really blow me away as I was hoping it would. The restaurant itself is a stunning place, perfectly relaxing. I only had 3 courses which, with amuse bouche and petit fours, was good value for money at 51 euros. The food was all impeccably presented with... More

We had a wonderful dinner at FACIL, a Michelin 2 star restaurant. Everything was top notch - service was impeccable and the tasting menu was creative and delicious - excellent wine pairings. Well done!

Was an unforgetable night. The summellier is a great proffessional. The foie and salmon was very taste, all the dishes to try before the mains were awesome and the special steak was the best cooked I never ate. Expert and very good service. The desert chart is very original.

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.
