Beautiful location and great food!

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.

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

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.

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
