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.

His passion for the culinary side of life started at a very young age, spending most of his time in the kitchen. After travelling throughout the world he chose Berlin in 2010 as his new hometown, thrilled by its amazing cultural diversity. Together with his team he creates uncommon exciting new dishes, which offer the guests an unforgettable culinary experience. The concept of the open kitchen and the direct contact to the guest is what Octavio enjoys the most – be close and having the personal connection to the guest is very important to him. The casual atmosphere generated by the combination of charming service and best French-Israeli cuisine, is what the Mani Restaurant stands for. The excellent and visionary composed New Year’s Eve Menu is a perfect sample of what Octavio and his Team are capable of and could also be a great start into the New Year.
