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.

The service was great, and the staff's English was seamless. The food was very good, and the ambiance was really nice. Don't be put off by the communal table; it's comfortable and fun. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Brilliant food, plenty of interesting options for vegetarians. You must save room for the deserts, these are especially exciting!

This was one of our best meals in Isreal. Everything we ate was delicious. I had the mushroom risotto and my daughter had the salmon. They have an extensive wine list. The deserts were excellent. There was a delay in the service of our main course. The waitress was aware of this (there was no need for us to complain)... More

1. the decoration is very nice, which is the best thing about the restaurant. 2. the food was terribly dissapointing, considering the high-end cost of the meal - around 160$ for a couple with no wine or dessert. 3. for the first course we had sweet chopped veal baklawa - which was too crunchy and simply too simple for its...
