“Okay, but did not live up to the hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

We've been looking forward to visiting Manta Ray for a long time, but have to say it was just okay. The meze were fine, and the one really outstanding one was the egg-plant puree. The seafood was only average, not memorable. The dessert was pretty good. View is nice, and the place is crowded. Our waiter was helpful and well informed, but there was a significant delay between when we got the appetizers and when we got our main course. If you want a nice meal on the beach, Manta Ray will probably meet your expectations, but if you are expecting to be blown away, try elsewhere.

“Breathtaking Location, Brilliant Seafood, Reasonable Prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Located right on the beach (on the se side of the promenade) the location, atmosphere and views are amazing. The menu has a great selection of seafood with some non-seafood items to accommodate those so inclined. To top it all off the prices are reasonable for the high level of cuisine (about $25 - $30 for first and main course without wine).

“Eating there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

We didn';t actually eat there but people staying in the hotel ate there and said it was fab - loads of choices and the food was excellent. It is just at the beginning of the way into Jaffa, not in Jaffa itself.
