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.

Expensive dinner for Berlin average price. However, interesting and innovative menu choice. Great Australian wine.

Sehr gutes Essen, aber ... die Atmosphäre und der Service haben uns den Abend ein wenig verdorben. Die rummeligen und schlecht beleuchteten Plätze rund um die Show-Küche fanden wir von Anfang an ungemütlich, aber unsere Bitte um einen ruhigeren Tisch im hinteren Bereich wurde abschlägig beschieden - ohne Begründung. Auch sonst war der Service wenig verbindlich, den Abend über haben wir ungefähr ein halbes Dutzend verschiedene Gesichter an unserem Tisch gesehen, freundliche Stimmung kam da nicht auf. Für diese Gesamtleistung ist der Preis dann doch nicht angemessen!

Leckeres Essen und nette Bedienung. Leider entsprach das Online-Menü nicht vollständig dem was an dem Abend auf der Speisekarte stand. Auch die telefonische Erreichbarkeit könnte besser sein.

Alles in allem ein gelungener Abend mit sehr leckerem Essen! Ungezwungene Atmosphäre, netter Service. Die offene Küche ist ein Hingucker. Das Weekend Menue war ein Sharing Menue, hat uns gut gefallen.

Die einzigen Kritikpunkte: 1] Jeder Gang für sich war super, in der Summe war es mir etwas zu viel Öl & Fett. 2) Wenn man keinen Wein mag, gibt es zu wenig interessante Alternativen. 3) Leider keine Plätze im Freien (mag an Corona-Einschränkungen gelegen haben). Also: Gerne mal wieder!

Great restaurant for a revisited experience of israelian cuisine. Amazing wine choices, high standard but relaxed atmosphere. The central kitchen makes the whole cooking process visible, and this is fascinating.
Lovely and unique

So we have been guests of the hotel and wanted to spontaniously eat in the restaurant. As we arrived we got a very unfriendly service who told us that without a reservation nothing would work here, what we did understand.
BUT he was SO unfriendly and unpolite that even I (as a yoga teacher got) angry at him!
As far as good we went back in our room and reserverd a table with this application. It worked, the table was booked.
So we headed back to the restaurant and as we entered the unfriendly guy came again and blamed us that we did reserved a table. He never apologized for his behavior or the mistake the system has made (which surely can happen).

NOT WORTH THE HYPE.
Service is everything in my mind. Even if there is no table a waiter should always be friendly!

The first and last course have been a perfect surrounding but we were a little upset that no one asked us for our preferred bread (we got the sesame one which was very oily) and we did not like the aubergine. Also there was a lot of garlic and Koriander which was simply overwhelming the other flavours. On top I had 3 whine instead of 2 on my invoice what I noticed on our way home. That was a little disappointing.

Layla eine aussergewöhnliche Erfahrung! Das Essen hervorragend, mal was ganz Neues, einfach klasse! Der Geräuschpegel war ok, aber wir waren am Corona Wochenende dort, das Restaurant war überhaupt nicht voll, was sonst wohl nicht der Fall ist! Reservierungen immer im Vorraus! Wir gehen auf jeden Fall wieder hin, wenn wir in Berlin sind!

Der Geräuschpegel ist für solch ein Restaurant viel zu hoch. Gespräche sind nur schwer zu führen. Die hohen Preise für die Speisen sind leider nicht gerechtfertigt. Die traditionellen Weine sind nicht mit den deutschen Weinen vergleichbar. Für zwei Personen war ein Preis von 160€ fällig. Das Restaurant ist in einem Hotel untergebracht, wahrscheinlich auf Grund dessen die leider zu hohen Preise.

Bemüht um Originalität und gute Produkte. Aber bei diesem Preis erwartet man auch Savoir-faire. Gab es nicht. Versalzen, nichts auf dem Punkt, weder das Fleisch noch das Gemüse. Das Abschmecken eine Katastrophe, da immer drüber. Sehr schade. Nicht zu empfehlen. Israelische Küche kann so viel besser sein, selbst in der einfachen Streetfood-Variante. Unter dem Strich: Überteuert für eine Küche, die noch Grundlegendes lernen muss, aber so tut, als wäre sie professionell.

At first we are surprised that Layla is part of a hotel. The service was warm and friendly. They were vere interested in that we have had a good stay in Layla. Our menu with starters und main course look great. The taste was also outstanding and we find that all ingredients fits together. In the kitchen they have their work very professionel.

The food were wonderful! There was an “explosion“ of wonderful tastes. The barman was very friendly, the host did his best to sit us in, we came one day early for our reservation and even the wrong time! He made an effort by convincing the kitchen/chefs to make us the last order! The waiter was knowledgeable on the dishes and genuinely friendly!

Quality of food a very good. Flavors are amazing. Attention to detail of presentation is great. Seafood not too fresh or were overcooked - scallops chewy. But its Berlin - sourcing of seafood is a problem. Service can be improved - beginning was fine then it got really slow. Price for Berlin standards is high. Compared to Nur in NYC - this is inferior but overall its a place you should try at least once. Ambiance is vibrant and hip. Wine selection limited and expensive.

Bad Service. Food to expansive. Hotel atmosphere. We ordered a wine, which was not available, the give us a other wine to taste and it was not good taste for us. But we have to pay it. Because the bottle was open. All the main menue was served while we are eating the starters. So the main course was cold if we started to eat it.
At the end we paied 100€ per person for bad service, bad wine and not very special food.
