Located just off the beach between Jaffa and Tel Aviv, Manta Ray is a popular seafood restaurant frequented by locals and tourists.
The restaurant offers a large, air-conditioned dining room. However, if you can stand the humidity, you might prefer a table on the outdoor terrace looking onto the beach. The view from here is quit enjoyable with the Mediterranean directly in front and the charming Jaffa port to the south.
Located on the sea, Manta Ray of course specializes in seafood.
For starters, a tray of over a dozen mezze plates is brought to the table. For NIS 13 you can choose between eggplant mouse, fried goat cheese served with beets, figs stuffed with cheese and chimichurra sauce and a shrimp and mango salad, to name a few.
For an additional NIS 13, homemade Balkan bread is served hot from the oven with olive oil and salt- a great accompaniment for soaking up extra sauce or dressing!
The dinner menu features a wide array of seafood. For non-seafood eaters, selection is limited: chicken kebab or beef fillet. Main dishes range from NIS 75-100.
Manta Ray is also very popular for brunch.
Extra attention is paid to delivering food straight from the kitchen to the table, so patrons enjoy their main course steaming hot, as the chef intends.
Manta Ray offers a full bar. Popular beverages include sangria blended with ice (NIS 35) and cava, sparkling Spanish white wine (NIS 35).
