Super experience! Went with 2 other couples--the appetisers were all delicious and the appetisers were creative and tasty too. I had seafood stew with couscous, others had a steak, seared fish, etc. I don't think you could go wrong. The desserts were creative and delicious. Highly recommended!

MESSA is an elegant, first class restaurant. It is located in the heart of Tel-Aviv, near the SARONA shopping area. Decoration and atmosphere are amazing. Servings and wines do make fill you arrived to the culinary side of heaven. Service is perfect. Value appropriate for this first-class experience.

We went to celebrate my father in law's birthday and had a great time at this stylish and upscale restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious, I started out with a leek ravioli, and then had the Koh Samui style fish. Both dishes were outstanding and I highly recommend it. The service was very good, even after they screwed up my... More

Located on the Haarbaa street in central Tel-Aviv, the beautifully designed Messa restaurant offers reasonably priced (in Israeli standards) lunch business which offers a large variety of dishes ranging from salads and pasta to meat and fish. Although some of the dishes have a touch of mid-eastern cuisine everyone can find something to their liking. On the down side, as... More

Typical of the artsy fartsy pseudo chef kitchens of Tel Aviv. Too many flavours mixed together and nothing exciting except the hamburgers. The staff was very accommodating changing dishes for sketching else but if the taste combinations were right in the first place it would not have been necessary! Prices were way too expensive for the product received. Wine List... More

The food was epic. The Levrak fish dish was perfect. If you don't order wine, prices are pretty reasonble in accordance with the food and service you will get.

Unique seating with high top tables and chairs, intimate alcoves, and other seating arrangements. Food wonderful and a bit eclectic. Prices were pretty high, but worth it.

A sexy city like Tel Aviv, needs a sexy restaurant like Messa. Well located near Serona Market. Messa is great for memorable occasions with equally memorable food. Whether you are vegetarian or not you have plenty of good options. A restaurant sometimes is an experience and Messa truly can be that. For me it was memorable, the pasta is "al... More
