Had a wonderful dinner experience. Fantastic creative dishes with all new flavor experiences and exquisite presentation. We went with the wine recommendations for all courses which were without exception a pleasure! The staff was attentive, friendly and also explained the special dishes very well.

It has the stars for a reason. Food and ambiance is just excellent. It is one of the few places where you can actually order the whole menu. This results in 8 courses. And although we settled for 5 all 8 dishes appeared on the table and everybody was ranting and raving about every single one of them. The only... More

Best 2017 diner so far. Amazing job from Michael Kempf and his executive Joachim Gerber. First diner of the new menu and it was a complete succes. Wide selection by the glass from Felix Voges. I recommend warmly this restaurant.

Excellent place for a special high-end dinner. Lunch is less expensive, with options of fewer courses. I went with the 3 courses, which was plenty for lunch along with wine. The space is very nice and fantastic for talking in a small group. Service was absolutely perfect of course.

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.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
