Beautiful veiw of the beach while dining, food was average

This trendy restaurant had a great vibe. You could have picked it up and sat it in NYC. Food was average. I had the scallops and shrimp with fennel puree, the scallops were were perfectly cooked but the shrimp were overdone. Salads were great I would recommend the tasting salads for starters.

Visited Manta Rey last week. Have been there many times and enjoyed. Last week we have a real bad experience. The first dishes tasted all the same, no spices and nothing special. The fishes were standard. It was disappointing and I hope it is a singular one time case. And it is expensive.

My partner took me for my birthday. We sat in the outside patio right next to the beach. Great appetizers and mains. Stick with seafood and you won't be disappointed.

Went here whilst in Tel Aviv. It was recommended to us by some guys who go here on a regular basis. The starters are good - lady brings over a selection of dishes and you choose what you want. Mains - stick with the fish! There's others but no point really. The crabs are good. All in all, very good.... More

And the food there is delicious too. Manta Ray is an institution in Tel Aviv. Yes, the food is expensive, but it's good and the view of the clear green/blue Mediterranean Sea from the beach is unforgettable. When I was for breakfast, the test evacuation alarm went off. 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
