Safe haven

Facil… 2 stars!
And it is deserved! One of this dinners were the security, the professionalism and the knowledge shines thru, in every serving and poring.
I missed the lobby pick-up, they have at Hugo’s. And they could have informed me at the entrance to the Mandala hotel, -that Facil is at the 5th. Floor. But when that we sorted. It was pure pleasure and tour de force experience.
We always go for a Menu and accomplishing Wine Menu!!! We are so naive that the Sommelier at a top class restaurant, knows more about wine then we do. -He was either very lucky or we are right in that assumption.
6 cause menu + the small “hellos” from the kitchen. It was good… better… best. The Scallops were the best we ever had! And the golden rice was just as decadent as we like it. You are at a ** restaurant, it is, and was as it should be. Great.
Its luxury and every sense should be played with, surprised and tampered with.
They do that at the Facil.
So if you are in the area, are looking for that kind of experience… Facil is a safe bet, and on our further list for a revisit.

I have lived in Berlin for over a year now and tried most of the top restaurants in the city. Facil is definitely close to the top. The food is imaginative and beautifully prepared and presented. The service is excellent and strikes the right balance between attentiveness and privacy.
The room itself is stylish and the space between tables means you really do get to have an intimate dinner.
The cost isn’t cheap but you get what you pay for - excellence in every part of the experience.
Highly highly recommended.

For our last night in Berlin we tried this highly recommended venue. The room is gorgeous with the view to a tranquil garden, interior water features, and Murano vases on each table. The staff was mostly inviting and the sommelier extremely accommodating. We opted for the a la carte menu mostly because the tasting menu seemed a bit too much food. In retrospect we should have done the 4 course menu as the dishes are tapas/sized. The amuse-bouche were terrific. The venison was the best ever tasted and my grilled duck breast superb. Having beered-out in Berlin we appreciated that the Sommelier suggested wines by the glass that didn’t break the bank. We dressed casually which seemed acceptable although some diners were dressed to the nines. If you are in the mood for a 2-starred restaurant with the requisite price this is a delightful experience in the great city of Berlin. Only complaint was the lack of a salad option on the a la carte menu - picky, picky, picky!

The food was fantastic as was the service. Whilst quite full for a Monday evening, it was relatively quiet. Possibly reflecting the more subdued character of the restaurant. The food was - as noted - fantastic.

The set lunch on weekdays is fantastic value for money. All dishes were excellent and of clearly two star level. The best were the desserts we thought.
