We had dinner at the restaurant.the service was professional and efficient. The waitress was very knowledgable and helped us pick the right dishes. I particularly liked the veal tonsils and the seafood cuscus. The sea bass kicked flavor and was nothing to write home about. The ambiance is unique and the interior design is definitely up to a high end... More

While the food is really good, the service should be better. Yet this is a good returant with a nice atmosphere. Be sure to try the lunch menu (even on fridays) of you wish to enjoy this resturant's great dishes at a more convinent price. The variety is great.

This is not a place for a simple dinner. This is where you want to come & celebrate with your love ones. The dinner was marvelous. tasted were great, service was top notch, and the deserts were to die for... It is pricey. Very pricey. But for a celebration - this is where you want to be.

Amazing, amazing, amazing. If there was a Michelin guide rating Israeli restaurants, Messa would definitely be listed as one of the top restaurants here. The food is literally mouth watering and the service is amazing. But what are you doing here reading this review? You should probably tasting that Caramelized Salmon with Coconut Foam :)

I've celebrated my birthday there two weeks ago and it was perfect. We had some seats reserved at the bar which is cosy and special. Atmosphere was great, music was at the right tune, and the food was a masterpiece!

My friends and I enjoyed our final dinner together in Tel Aviv at Messa--at my request. I'd read and heard it was among the best in the city, and it didn't disappoint. What a meal! The restaurant looks like something out of Manhattan or Los Angeles--very white, very modern, very minimalist, and very dramatic. The service and food were outstanding.... More

Not a cheap meal, but no cheap flavors too. truly a gourmet meal but you do pay for it, do not arrive broke! I took my wife for a special date she loved it (and loved telling all her friends i took her here!) I had the Seared sirloin, with sweet potato tortellini and diced Foie gras sauce, wow! and... More
