I was was about to have a panic attack (yes, I thought... More

Here is the toolkit for a PERFECT and romantic evening: Table on the terrace, book for 45 minutes before sunset, lemon margarita, mezze (great little appetizers), Seafood to Share, Vanilla/whisky/dates ice-cream. Top it up with a good local wine. Walk back to the hotel - you will need the exercise. None of the dishes are guaranteed - they all depend... More

After a delightful walk from our hotel in Old Jaffa, we got a great table on the back deck overlooking the sea. We arrived without a reservation, and the restaurant was otherwise full. All staff members were delightful, and the waiter was so helpful, as it was our first night out for dinner in Israel. Both fish dishes were prepared... More

I have had dinner at Manta Ray at least 3 times over the last 9 years and I am never disappointed. Great seafood, and desserts. The location and view of the ocean is beautiful.

Highly recommend to arrive late afternoon- before the sunset, and enjoy the wonderful view. We usually go for a light early dinner of tapas dishes- they are superb and cost only ~20 NIS each. Highly recommended.

Nice restaurant specialised in seafood and fish. Very good location on the beach with a view of Jaffa. Good food but can be crowded in the evening - and the service is good but slow then.
