the menu was small and limited
dishes were expensive-though very nice-but small portions for the price

We could not get a reservation. Last night we did and it was worth the wait. We started with some very inventive salads, saon with herbs, grouper tartare, mullet cervishe. We the had sea bream baked with local cheeses Nf a cast iron crock of mixed seafood. All were excellently prepared with great views. As for service, lets just say that this is not a national strongpoint.

The service here was excellent, and the food is wonderful. There is a lot of choice on the menu (although it is primarily seafood). The highlight of the meal was the meze to start - they bring several dishes on a tray and you can choose (dishes are priced individually). The view is phenomenal, you are practically on the beach. Watching the waves roll in is fantastic. If you are vegetarian, ask for the special vegetarian menu (I found this out afterwards!). There are not many dishes suitable for vegetarians on the normal menu, but they are happy to give you the vegetarian menu. Desserts looked incredibly tempting but we were too full. It may not look that salubrious from the outside, but Manta Ray is fantastic.

Wow - just seating in this restaurant and watching the see waves 20 meters from you is amazing.
Add to this the good food and relaxing excellent service and you got one of the best restaurants in Israel and in Tel-Aviv.
They call their breakfast "Optimistic Breakfast" - Looks like they know what they are talking about with that amazing see view in the morning...

Also have great cook book of their own that they sell in the restaurant - recommended as a person that loves food and cooking.

The place is sure busy. We were seated quickly but then it took about 20 minutes till the server came by to get our order. Once we did order though, the food was great. Some really wonderful tapas-just remember that each one costs. We ordered a lot thinking they were all included for the price. But they were some of the best tasting food we had on our trip. Great views as well. Only issue that dings the place is the service-asked many times and differing servers for some water but none ever came. So just know that the hassle you go through with the service is worth the food you get.
