Our strikingly designed Caribbean Asian restaurant brings the spirit of Asia to the heart of Puerto Rico. Let us take you into a vibrant world of fresh fusion food created by our locally famous chef, Mario Pagan. Avocado chili drops, tuna poke pegaito or spiced adobo kurobuta ribs are some of the recipes inspired by the flavors of Thailand, Vietnam, Korea & Japan. Experience the passion of the chef in a lively atmosphere and a dramatic setting furnished with marble patterned floors in the first floor of O:LV Fifty Five.

Be dazzled by our Sake and Japanese whiskey infused cocktails or let our expert mixologists create a bright combination of flavors for you! It’s a truly one-of a kind experience, where sharing is encouraged and superb is required.

Our dress code is casual elegant. No shorts/flips flops allowed.

Your table will be reserved for 2 hours. We have a 15 minute grace period for all tables. NOTE: When booking outdoor seating, it is for the terrace at RAYA, not ARYA Rooftop.

                                              Outdoor seating had no ventilation or fan, heat was overwhelming. Was sweating all through the meal. After asking several times to be moved indoors, we were told there were no tables available, despite several tables being empty. Food was not bad, but nothing special. Definitely Overpriced. Service was really slow. Valet took forever. Outside there was absolutely no ambience, it was basically like dining in the middle of the street. Not at all what you would expect for a meal costing over $100 per person.

                                              The food is excellent. Be prepared for a leisurely wait between courses, but it just gave me time to digest this excellent food. Generous portions and amazing flavors.

                                              A few items were overpriced for the type of food being served. Other than that, good ambiance, service and presentation.

                                              We had a great dinner at Raya. It’s a pretty small, modern and nicely decorated restaurant. We were tucked in a table for 2 at the back of the restaurant. All the staff were thoughtful, attentive and very professional. There are both appetizers / tapas (small plates) and main dishes. We enjoyed our dishes and drinks and there were some nice touches by the staff throughout our meal.

                                              My significant other and I chose to go here on our last night in Puerto Rico. I'd heard great things about the restaurant and thought that it would be a great end to the trip. A few notes: 1. My girlfriend has some food allergies, which I noted in the reservation. Our usual experience at top restaurants has been that we are either met with a menu that is marked with she can and can't have, or at least a waiter/front of house member that is knowledgeable about this issue. Upon arriving, we had to let the staff know about her allergies again as they were unaware. While our waitress was helpful, there was a lot of back and forth between our table and the kitchen versus a smoother experience. 2. The cocktails were great! I loved the El Navegador. My girlfriend's lemonade was also delicious. 3. The appetizers were tasty. I had the wontons, and our waitress comped an appetizer for my girlfriend as a treat for her to try which I found nice. 4. The main courses, however, were okay...yet not worth the price. The lo mein was a bit greasy. My girlfriend's duck was more dry than moist. We were left feeling that we'd received less than what we had expected, and certainly that we'd had better main courses at other restaurants for half the amount! Overall, this was an okay end to our vacation-- rather made up for by the view of the bay as we sat outside, yet still lacking due to what I considered less than stellar food.

                                              Everything about our experience here was wonderful. Food, cocktails, and service were fantastic. I don’t write reviews but I felt after our experience at Raya, that I should make an exception. What made the evening even better was the service from the bartender, waiter, and manager all just taking a moment to make sure that we had what we needed and that everything was to our liking. Great experience and we will be returning.

                                              Pasamos una gran noche con mi mujer, no solo por el ambiente del lugar (decoración, estilo, aunque muy ruidoso si se está adentro), sino principalmente por la atención y la comida exquisita. Muchos platos elaborados para elegir, así que sin lugar volveremos para seguir probando. Muy buena cocktelería también.

                                              Service was great. Started of with some Salmon Billcarte brut served cold and replenished as needed. Appetizers were spring rolls (ok) and tuna sashimi which was excellent. The entrees were ok. I had the miso bass, the Brussel sprouts which accompanied it were delicious. The bass was properly cooked, but the miso was very understated and the croquettes chewy and cold. Not a pleasant combination. My spouse had the Dick which he enjoyed but didn’t love. The sticky pudding dessert was wonderful and the ambiance very pleasant. Overall a nice night. Next time may just go for champagne and dessert.

The food, ambiance and service was outstanding! 5+ stars for our waiter Carlos: very helpful detailing the dining selection & cocktails.,The only disappointment was that we arrived early to have a drink in the rooftop, which seemed pretty open, but were told it was all reserved. Next time in Puerto Rico we will definitely go back to Raya!
