We have been trying different fusion Israeli restaurants over the last year and are amazed at the innovative nature of Israeli Chefs jay have decided to veer away from the standard Hummas and Shwarma boring stuff. It is quite difficult to make it in Tel Aviv as it is so to our surprise Messa turns out to be one of... More

We were really looking forward to this but i have to say it did not wiite live up to our expectations. It was lovely but not exceptional. My starter and desert were wonderful but the main course dish was quite disappointing. The service also was not awefuly friendly. We did expect more from a place claiming to be the institution!

We were on a work evening out so got a limited version of the menu but even choosing between two main dishes was hard. Everything was delicious, beautifully presented, and the wines which accompanied the meals were well... More

The whole experience - very interesting combinations of food in a beautiful place with a very good atmosphere, in a very good location (Sarona Market on one side and Haarbaa st., close to Rothschild ave.). This restaurant is expensive, but worths the price. I went there for a business deal, which was very fair priced. The meals are not big,... More

We had late lunch in this chef restaurant. The " business lunch" included 2 dishes and costs 146 shekels. All dishes were worthy the price, but the desserts and particularly " Sarkusy" were amazing... The service is professional and friendly Highly recommended
