This place certainly has a wow factor. The communal tables are great and you feel really part of the restaurant. Ben talked us through the wine list with expertise and understanding of our taste in wine, excellent white Israeli wine. Liel walked us through the menu in a mouthwatering way. The choices and mix of flavours were to die for.... More

The food is much better then the decor , they invested so much in this strange uncomftterbale no windows place, So only the knight table in the middle is possible for reaching your plate . But the food is amazing very special, At night they have indoor bar very smoky and special crowd . Better for lunch.

I don't think I've ever had a dinner quite as delicious as this one: caramelized salmon with wild mushrooms, zucchini and herbs. The service was quiet and professional; the space was understated, elegant, white, soft lighting. The bar is black -- exact opposite of the dining room. Everything about Messa was wonderful. Don't miss it in Tel Aviv.

I would consider travelling to Israel just to eat at this restaurant. One of the absolutely best gastronomical experiences I've had.

The food is still wonderful, but what seemed to have an innovative look a few years ago, and not a Classic one, doesn't feel like an innovative anymore, and a great one.

This restaurant has a modern and beautiful setting, the best food and great service. The blending of the ingredients in each plate is so delicious you want to eat slowly and enjoy each bite. Just perfect!

Messa is a great place to have a business dinner. Food is gorgeous and freshly made. Service is impeccable and preformed by knowledgable people. You can surely ask for a suggestion and you'll be awesomely guided. You need to try a bit of all their starters and deserts. Highly recommended.
