The food was fantastic- some of the best seafood I've tasted. The setting was great with a nice view of the sunset. The only reason it doesn't deserve 5 stars is that the service is a bit slow.

Manta Ray had been touted as one of the top ten restaurants in Tel Aviv, especially if you like fish. Well, I was very disappointed with my dining experience at this restaurant. The service was slow, with a touch of arrogance. The mezze was the least interesting and most unappetizing that I have eaten in Tel Aviv and the grilled... More

Recommended highly by Shenkin Hotel staff despite less than enthusiastic reviews. The location on the beach is unbeatable. The waves are breaking as you walk through the front door. The staff are welcoming but let you know they have a good thing. The white beans and octopus starter and the whole calamari main course were excellent. The shrimp risotto was... More

We were recommended by our hotel concierge to this restaurant which was a short walk away. The restaurant has a beach front facing with a spectacular sea view with both indoor and outdoor terrace seating. We were warmly welcome and choose to seat outdoor. The owner was friendly and came to speak to us. The restaurant specialize in seafood and... More

This restaurant is right on the beach. Its glass windows give spectacular sea views. All the dishes we chose were nicely presented and well prepared using good quality ingredients. The service was excellent. I can unreservedly recommend Manta Ray.

Firstly the location. It doesn't get much better than this. Right on the beach - literally. At night with the floodlights on the water, it's still beautiful. Because this is winter, and it was night time, the terrace was closed, but there are huge picture windows on the special view. Note: in summer when the terrace is open to guests,... More

Had lunch on Saturday with my family. Very nice and relaxed atmosphere, the outdoor area is almost on the beach and as the weather was wonderful though we are in December, it was really pleasant. Service is professional but not stilted, friendly and with good advices. At first we went for the small salads they proposed and everything was very... More

Was there for dinner this November but it felt like summer. Located at the south end of the 5 mi hyper clean Tel Aviv sea shore (a sandy beach) it offers a nice view on the illuminated Jaffa citadel. Typically mediterranean food and ingredients. Try the mixed starters to share and one of the fish dishes. The local merlot is... More
