“Very unique and delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

We ate at Facil earlier this week, and of the similarly rated restaurants where we ate on our trip (Vau, Fischers Fritz, Uma), Facil was the only one filled to capacity. We were graciously greeted as we entered the 5th floor, and the hotel was a bit modern for my tastes, but very nice.

We opted for the tasting menu, and our sommelier recommended great German wines to accompany. One of the other wait staff accidentally poured a taste out of our bottle to another couple, and he graciously removed 20 Euros from the cost of the wine bottle. He handled the situation with grace.

The meal was inventive and enjoyable. The only drawback was the length of the meal. We noticed this often in Berlin, meals tended to drag on forever. Our meal at Facil was 3.5 hours... Highly recommend (but be aware of the time.)

“Grand restaurant, mérite son étoile Michelin.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

Nous avons séjounés dans l'hotel Mandala pour cinq jours. Les déjeuner du Facil sont très bien, buffet haut de gamme ( fromages rafinés, terrines) mais aussi divers choix d'oeufs préparés. Excellent cafés,service à la hauteur. Nous avons pris deux repas du soirs avec un menu gastronomique très intéressant et un bon choix de vins. Excellent service. La visite au Facil s'imposse si vous aller à Berlin.

“Innovative, different and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

We booked the entire restaurant out for a dinner with business partners and absolutely loved it. The menu was different, slightly experimental and delicious. The wine selection was very good and the service was friendly, efficient and quick. This was really a gastronomic experience and everyone gave very good feedback. The whole team at Facil can be very proud of their restaurant and the food they serve. I look forward to one day going back there.

This is not a cheap place to eat, but the experience will live with you forever. Every course of the tasting menu was perfect.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

The food was exquisite. Inventive, beautifully presented and delicious. From the selection of amuse-bouches to the cheese plate, everything we had was truly memorable. The only thing that let the evening down was the slightly poor service. As an example, I had just started to eat one of the tiny amuse-bouche when the waiter came to take our order and hovered by rather insistently. And for my starter and main course on both occasions the waiter/waitress grandly described the dish but got it wrong. Don't want to overplay these things because they did not in any way spoil an evening of superb food. We would definitely go back and definitely recommend it for a special occasion.
