Description: The innovative, elegant style of the MANI Restaurant is setting new trends on the Berlin eatery scene. Head chef Octavio Bravo serves up French cuisine, experimenting with Eastern Mediterranean ingredients. The best way of getting to know the menu is to order a mixed selection of starters ('chuzpeles'), placed in the centre of the table like tapas. Appetizers like Calamaretti with quail egg and harissa mayonnaise or cauliflower with salted lemon, garlic butter and almond are peculiar but encourage the desire to discover the culinary range on offer. Dark furniture, restrained lighting, an open kitchen and a fireplace carved in green marble emphasize the elegance of the restaurant. Photographs of the MANI team by Oliver Rath grace the walls. Seating is available outside in the peaceful courtyard, weather permitting, and anyone wanting to watch the denizens of the Torstrasse scene can sit outside on the terrace. The MANI Restaurant celebrated the award of 'Scene restaurant 2012' in September 2012.

“Superb food!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Me and my boyfriend spent new years in Berlin, and we had our new years dinner in Mani Restaurant. And we couldn't have picked a better place! Everything was perfect. The interior was modern and stylish, but at the same time very cosy and warm. The service was great, you couldn't ask for more! And most important of all - the food was suberb! Without doubt one of my best food experiences ever! Their seafood was really great, and our main course was inspired by the french kitchen with meat and foie gras. We also had some kind of bird (pigeon, I think), which was extraordinary!!! They also had a good selection of wine, and not too expensive either. We loved this place, and would definitely go there again if we could!!!

“Stunning meals”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Really enjoyed the place! The interior is really cosy and at the same time stylish. But the main thing is food, of course. It was delicious. We even felt kinda guilty for consuming these masterpieces. Definetly worth visiting. And there are lots of designer shops in the area, so you can walk around after the meal.

“Cool restaurant with interesting cuisine”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel concierge as a little different. It was indeed, both in decor and cuisine and certainly not typically German. The cuisine was mediterranean but with a french twist to it. Reasonably priced with an good selection f wines, including both Israeli and Lebanese wine, to give it its Middle Eastern credentials.

The food was clearly all cooked from fresh ingredients in an open kitchen. There was nothing 'safe or traditional' on the menu so everything was a little leap of faith but everything we ate was excellent - the tuna pistachio starter was particularly good.

Would certainly recommend it
