We had just arrived in Tel Aviv. We were tired and hungry. Our room wasn't ready so we decided to explore. Do we go right or left from our hotel so we went left and found Manta Ray. We both had the seafood risotto and it was amazing. The staff was very helpful. We loved our first meal in Israel.

We went back, after some years... The fish dishes were as excellent as we remembered (we tried 2 dishes). Service was efficient but not particularly friendly. We got a table on the terrace with a nice view of the sea and the night beach life and visitors (interesting by itself:). On the down side: we did not enjoy the appetizers... More

Good sea fruits and fish dishes, and an amazing breakfast! great location just on the beach, about 1 km from Jaffa. Prices are fancy.

Manta Ray is another great restaurant in Tel Aviv. Typical local food with a very good taste, variety and cooked to perfection. Any fish here is a win, and so are any of the mezze they offer when you sit. Try to be seated outside if it's not too hot, the views to the Mediterranean Sea are worth a picture.

Went there with some friends for Brunch. Almost filled up, but we managed to get a table on the deck with the ocean view. lovely settings and good food for a hangover treat. Their Bloody Mary is perfect.

Though somewhat pricy, the food was good. As happened to me on many occasions in Israel, the main dishes were not impressive. Fish farmed (sea bass and dorade) fish prepared without much inspiration. However the starters were excellent and I would highly recommend to order some more starters and skip the main dishes. That will certainly enhance the experience.

Well-established, well-run, efficient restaurant with stunning views of Old Jaffa and the Mediterranean Sea. Fish is excellent, of course. Service is fair. Owner is friendly. Have returned many, many times.

Amazing food with a wide variety of options for any taste or preference. The service was very friendly and personable however they just didn't get things right. Mains came separately after the order was put through wrong. Having 4 different waiters probably didn't help the communication flow either. The 2 tables around also encountered service issues. I'd definitely go back... More

Although in a very touristic area manta ray has wonderful seafood and fish food. The view is beautiful, so it is a perfect combination. We liked the idea of choosing our starters (mazets) with no menu just by bringing them to the table and let us pick. The starters are quite innovative and different from what you usually gets in...

Packed on a Thursday night. Go when you can sit outside and enjoy watching the sunset during your meal. Really worth it. The food was amazing too... Really fresh fish that super well prepared. The tapas starter is great so you scan sample lots nd the seafood choices were all delicious. Fun and fabulous. We will be back
