2. Ristorante a Mano

While it might not seem as romantic as evening dining, we highly suggest heading to Ristorante a Mano in the early afternoon. Light floods in from the oversized windows and fills the dining room with a sense of charm and wonder. To top it all off, the Italian food served here is better than you’ll find at some restaurants in Italy. Add a charming wine list and dessert menu to that and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a mighty fine evening.

4. Spindler

Spindler is one of Berlin’s most romantic restaurants in part for the fact that it’s located just beside the famous Kreuzberg canal. During the warmer months, this is the place to take a date you’re trying to impress. Start the evening with a glass of French or German wine, of which we recommend the latter. Then, move onto the main course, which is so delicious it’ll be hard not to lose sight of why you’re there. The charming garden atmosphere, however, ensures you’ll definitely feel a bit of excitement and passion with whoever you’re with.

5. Panama

Panama is exotic, and that’s where its charm truly lies. While it might not look traditionally romantic, it’s the exoticism and openness of the restaurant that is passion-inducing. A scaled-back decor is contrasted by the upscale nature of the menu, which features dishes such as pulled lamb shoulder. Pair that with any drink on the menu and your stomach might fall in love just as much as you do.

6. The Grand

Dining at The Grand feels as if you’ve been transported straight into a 1930s European romance novel. From the grand ballroom to the peeling wallpaper, there’s something so undeniably classic about this restaurant that it’s hard not to fall in love when visiting. On top of the intimate atmosphere, you can enjoy Franco-German dishes that truly delight the palate as well.


FACIL is the proud owner of two Michelin stars, amongst many other accolades. You’ll find this romantic restaurant at The Mandala Hotel on Potsdamer Platz, which locals even know is one of the best spots to go for a passionate evening of food and drink. The slogan here is to “experience the ease of being,” and that couldn’t be a more perfect setting for an evening of learning to just “be” in the moment with your loved one.
