Nice place for ש breakfast

Manta Ray located in Tel Aviv 'Lahat' boardwalk at the beach front, about 10 minutes walk from Jaffa. Nice view and very good atmosphere. Ordered from their breakfast menu omelet, bread and salad that were very tasty. Remember to book your place in advance, especially during the weekend.

Excellent food, well selected wine, very attentive service. Dollars spent clearly worth the enjoyment experienced. Definitely recommend to those who think of seafood in the area.

I've been at Manta Ray on numerous occasions but this time the service was sub par. We had a reservation for 8PM. Arrived a bit early 7:45 and were seated. By 8:45 - we were still not served. The waiters said the Meze appetizers were 'being prepared' but that was a poor excuse. They didn't bother bringing anything, not even... More

We ate here twice after having eaten here 5 years earlier. The fish is fresh and well prepared and the sides are good too. The wait staff could use improvement, but we're friendly. I guess since we are repeaters, that is a good enough recommendation.

We went for a seafood dinner - had a few of the small salads to share, then fish and bouillabaisse for mains. All dishes were delicious and accurate - flavours delicately mixed to create perfection in every bite. The restaurant is slightly on the pricy side, but the food is well worth it in my opinion.

It is just amazing how kind people are to you there. I definitely recommend this place. The food has an amazing taste and besides that i strongly suggest to get Malka Blonde beer. Wonderful taste.

Manta Ray is a total sensory experience. It is all that is good about Tel Aviv encapsulated in one place - the staff, the people, the food, the style of it all. It simply oozes Tel Aviv high style but in a totally relaxed way. There is nothing to be faulted. The food is excellent. The style of the food... More

I had a dinner for my girlfriend's birthday and was amazing. A very good place in front of the sea. Seafood is fresh and most of the time served with good vegetables. I would suggest to book a table before.

Manta Ray is busy... don't try without a reservation... and they will want your table back in two hours... it is a hip place to be eating. The service was great, multi lingual, friendly. The food, particularly the fish dishes are delicious. They also have a great Tenderloin Steak, cooked to perfection... we had three meals and tapas to start...... More
