On August 1st 2015 the AMANO Group opened another hotel directly across from the Berlin Central Station. The Hotel AMANO Grand Central is the largest hotel the group has built to date and it remains faithful to the company vision: luxurious but affordable atmosphere that sets a new standard for urban travel. All 250 rooms are furnished in a pleasant and modern purist style with quality design and offer the short-term visitor or business clients the perfect comforts during their stay. Whether its business travel or a short city visit – the hotel AMANO Grand Central focuses on perfection in all areas: conference rooms suffused with light and equipped with modern technology, a fitness centre with a view of the government district, the premium location and the gastronomic concept leave nothing to be desired. Whether you are looking for a light snack or a business lunch: the ground floor bistro serves city visitors or Berlin folk with the finest culinary dishes. After a long day of meetings or a day of exploring the city, the spacious and opulently planted rooftop terrace with its bar “The APARTMENT” is the ideal place to relax and unwind. Here too, the creators of the renowned AMANO bar put great emphasis on a creative and quality bar culture that enriches the city’s night life and would like to invite Berliners and visitors alike for a sundowner drink in the summer of 2015. The whole team is looking forward to your visit!

“Tradition newly interpreted” applies to the concept of the vineyard Reverchon as well as to the concept of the MANI Restaurant.

The MANI Restaurant invites you to enjoy a 3 course menu with selected wines of the wine estate Reverchon on Monday, April 27th 2015. Reverchon stands for “dry, light & pure.” The wines of the vineyard are mostly dry in nature, low in alcohol, creamy with a well-balanced acid spine and pure in taste. That evening cellarmaster Ralph Herke will present outstanding wines of the new vintage that are classy and contemporary in style and quality. Created by chef Octavio Oses Bravo, the dishes will be served “family style“, placed in the middle of the table, in order to be shared. Hereby, the emphasis is placed on communication, interaction, and diversity.

The wine tasting for the price of 70,00€ includes:
3 course menu incl. wine company, water and coffee.

For reservations please contact our restaurant manager & sommelier
Peter Betz:

We are looking forward to a great evening!

Kind regards,
Your MANI Restaurant Team

New culinary Chef at MANI Restaurant

We like to welcome back Octavio Oses Bravo – a native-born Argentinian who grew up in Spain – to the MANI Restaurant. He was part of the first original culinary team before he took a two year creative break to gain new inspirations and impressions. Highly motivated he returned to be our head chef, fusing his new experiences with the already creative kitchen of the Mani Restaurant.
