We went initially for breakfast on a suggestion from friends. It was original, delicious and beautifully situated overlooking the beach in Tel Aviv just before Yafo. Amazing baked goods and dips. Service was friendly and worthy the price. It was so good we went back for dinner the following night. They were very accommodating for our kids. Great cocktails and... More

Manta Ray never disappoints. The food is good, the fresh ׳mazes' (small dishes with different tasters) are great, the bread excellent. A little over priced with great sea view (order a window table) no wonder Manta Ray is a hit with tourists. Enjoy!

Very good local restaurant and high end clientele. Excellent choice of food, and the restaurant is right on the beach. Recommend reserve in advance. Really good.

We went to this restaurant based on reviews in Trip Advisor and another source. We were very disappointed with the whole dining experience. Manta Ray is beautifully situated near the water and it must be a lovely setting at lunch or at sunset. It is quite large and as we entered a group of 40 people from a bus tour... More

Together with 2 colleagues I had dinner here on a stormy night in February (cold for TLV standards). We made reservations up front and that's a necessity, due to the setting it's a very popular place, was packed even on a Wednesday evening. As starters we had a selection of Middle East/Israeli dishes and that was nice, you pay per... More

Best location in Tel-Aviv, make sure to order a few days in advance and even a week or so before if you're looking to sit at the porch in the weekend! Amazing breakfast, wonderful dinners and don't forget to try some cocktails! Ask for the frozen lemon margarita! For desert try the corrupt chocolate, can't go wrong! Enjoy

The view is lovely and the food delicious but pricey. I would not return because of the service. All foreigners or tourists are shuttled to middle of Resteraunt, no view windows. Every person who did not speak Hebrew did not get a window table even when many were unoccupied.

In December 21,2014 I went with friends to really nice place "Manta Ray" witch locating right on the beach of Tel Aviv right by sea! We had a table out side with view to the sea, it's just add amazing atmosphere to us! Food was good but can't say really something special, let's say I was expected better food in... More
