Mediterranean
Layla is the new modern Mediterranean x Middle Eastern restaurant & bar in Berlin hosted by cosmopolitan chef Meir Adoni. His restaurants in Tel Aviv and New York are already well established and distinguished as the top places in the culinary scene.
Layla Restaurant offers a casual-fine dining experience with a menu that allows sharing dishes between friends along with an à-la-carte menu.
For a more speakeasy evening setting, guests can choose to sit at the rounded bar and order a nice selection of bar food and complementing drinks.
The drinks menu consists of a well-selected choice of local spirits and organic wines. The wines list predominantly contains wines from Europe as well as the Middle East. Emanuele Broccatelli, a renowned Italian mixologist, is in charge of the drinks served at Layla. He is creating new concoctions complementing chef Meir Adoni’s food.

Schöne Location , netter Service , Essen und Zubereitung gut aber nicht wirklich ausgewogen, zB zu viele unterschiedliche Saucen bei einem Gericht, miserable Weinkarte leider, schreckliche Empfehlungen des Sommeliers, besser Bier oder Champagner trinken, denn das ist ok. Hintergrundmusik extrem laut und störend

Nice restaurant with great atmosphere - open kitchen, depending on your table you can watch the cooks...
Dishes were very good and tasty but pretty heavy - had a stomach full of stones for 20h without eating a lot.
Services was ehmm improvable. When we received attention it was fine but we rarely received attention. It wasn't crowded.

Nice experience but I had better dinner and much better service for this price.

To start off with, the food is not bad. But definitely not a show stopper! The concept seems to be a middle-eastern-japanese crossover, which firstly sounds very interesting. The japanese parts (sashimi) were definitely better than the oriental parts. Afterwards the feeling remained that it’s more made for Instagram, means it looks better than it tastes.
The portionsize was mostly ok, some (fish doughnuts for example) were a bit small.
Also the wines were not very interesting.
Service was friendly but not very well briefed, most of them speak only english and it was hard to understand them due to the loud music. Felt like a very young team without lots of routine in gastronomy...
The location is beautiful but not really cosy. If you want to talk relaxed it might not be the right place.
The drink at the bar was pretty good though!
All in all: way too expensive for what you get!

One of the most exceptional dining experiences we’ve ever had. Ambiance was fantastic with the open kitchen as the centerpiece. Very relaxed bar area with unusual selection of cocktails. Every course was exceptional in its presentation and taste sensation. Highly recommended.

Essen war gut, Service weniger. Nach anfänglich reibungslosem Ablauf passierte plötzlich nichts mehr, der nächste Gang kam nicht, wir konnten keinen Wein und Wasser ordern etc. Wir haben die Oberkellnerin angesprochen, die sich sehr engagiert gekümmert hat (allerdings nur mit mäßigem Erfolg, es dauerte weiter...). Das Personal schien uns angesichts eines vollen Restaurants überfordert zu sein. Schade!

It was my first time at Layla and we all loved the food and the service. besides the fact that we waited a while for our drinks everything was just perfect. We had 5 pre dishes and 2 mains and Qatayef was my absolute favorite pre. As Mains we trieds Steets of Beirut and Grilles Octopus - both highly recommended. Will come again

Zu teuer, für das was es ist! 17€ für riesige Stücke rohen Blumenkohl und ein paar Stücke Lamm, die schon eher an Hammel erinnerten ist übertrieben. Dem Essen fehlte im großen Ganzen das gewisse Etwas, vor Allem die Balance, Salz, Säure etc. Das Auberginencarpaccio war viel zu süß. Der Salat war gammelig, was sehr schade ist, wenn dieser sogar im Lokal selbst wächst. Der Service war freundlich, allerdings auch mal wieder Berlin Style englischsprachig. Und ich hätte ich eine Entschuldigung erwartet, nachdem ich auf den gammeligen Salat aufmerksam machte.

It was a nice evening, wunderfull , delicious food.

Unfortunatily: The service could be lot better. Less „cool“. More professionell would be nice.

Prices are high.

Music was lot to loud. Had to scream.

But the food is really great.

The food had great quality, however it was a little too avant garde for my taste when I am eating Israeli food - I personally like it a little simpler. Drinks and service were both amazing, but the lighting inside was too bright and bathrooms are too far away since the restaurant is located inside a heavily lit hotel.

Es war laut wie in einer Kantine. Personal spricht kaum Deutsch. Essen zu teuer. Selbst habe ich mein Essen erst 20 Minuten nach meiner Frau erhalten, weil es angeblich einen Schichtwechsel bei den Küchen gab!! Für den Preis nicht empfehlenswert!!

Guten Tag,
ich war jetzt das dritte Mal bei euch. Das Essen ist wunderbar, Service, Ambiente alles!

Lediglich die MUSIK IST SEHR LAUT.
Und weil die Musik so laut ist, reden alle ganz laut, was sich insgesamt hochschaukelt zu einem irren Geräuschpegel.

Gerne komme ich wieder!

Liebes Lyla Team,

sensationelle Küche und sehr schönes Interior! Allein die Kalbszunge war anders als erwartet - zu schwere Sauce, zu französisch. Die vegatarischen Gerichte sind allesamt grossartig.

Bis zum nächsten Mal, wir freuen uns
