Messa is a restaurant with innovative food combinations, but the food - excellent - is not the only aspect to appreciate. The restaurant decoration is enjoyable as well. High chairs, white curtains, some high tables create different environments in the same place, without a real separation among them, but at the same time making you fill apart from the rest... More

Good food good service great atmosphere the price is over the top and do not justify the whole place. I believe that the chef Aviv Moshe can make it ,he has imagination and ideas

Messa gives you the best value for your money . The restaurant is very elegant. Great service and the chef really knows the job. The price for business lunch is very reasonable. Don't miss it. Great for special occasions.

This is one of the restaurants we like for any event. We booked the private room and has a great feast. Worth mentioning: the riviollis, Caramelized salmon, sea food dishes, Veal "baklava and Strips of beef fillet, mushrooms, potato cream in chestnut balsamic stock. Can't wait to be back!

Everything was great about this place. Located among other upscale restaurants in Tel Aviv. The food was not terribly expensive. Atmosphere, pastas, and desserts were amazing. I will definitely return!

The meal was a gourmet delight. I have eaten in places all around the world and this was among the best. Met the chef. No formal training but knew what he as doing. Cuisine was best compared to classical French but not as rich.

Trying hard, but far away from what they attempt to be. Nice people, lousy service, good quality of food, chef is fitting European higher standards. Kleenex? table that does not have a tablecloth? nothing to talk about? Check it..

Food is really good so is the service. attention to details and also in a central location. however, you better make a reservation for a table well in advance or you will find yourself sitted in the concept table (high table in the center not so comfortable)
