Asian
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.

This was the best meal we had our entire visit to the San Juan area. The drinks were beyond exceptional. The food was absolutely phenomenal. Johnathan gave the best service. Next time we come to Raya we will most definitely ask for him. I personally work in fine dining and this experience blew me away. We asked Jonathan to pick out wine to pair with our entrees and without a doubt, he nailed it. What an amazing finish to our visit, which makes us want to come back again even more!

Covid wise it was good except for one exception: They had a banquette next to me that sat four people across with the two tables and two different couples pushed together with zero space between.
I ordered two appetizers and planned to order a third so I could get a range of the chef's cooking. Both appetizers came at exactly the same time. The restaurant needs to learn about proper timing.
The food was good but not excellent or outstanding in any way.
The ambiance and wait staff were excellent.

Hosting out of town guests and it was a lovely setting for our dinner. Drinks service were perfect. My only complaint is the food is terribly over salted. To the point it’s not enjoyable.

This was a bachelorette dinner for a childhood friend, and Raya was the perfect setting. Next to the Condado lagoon, the restaurant was intimate but lively. The Puerto Rican/Asian inspired menu was spectacular and perfect for sharing appetizers and main courses. Our reservation was at 7 and we were the last ones to leave the restaurant at midnight. Go to Raya before it’s impossible to get a table!!!

Outstanding service and food. Exceeded expectations. However, when I made the reservation I specified that it was a special occassion ( wedding anniversary) and they had no special details for the occassion. This would have made the experience that much more special.

A stunning building and professional staff . Was actually disappointment in the food. We tried one of each tapas and found them wanting and lacking real texture and flavor . ( bland ) . Pity as the venue is a fantastic location and 10 out of 10 for the visuals

The servers were excellent and knowledgeable. The seating arrangements in the restaurant were poor. Some tables were by the kitchen in a dark alcove others were by the doors leading outside to the terrace where other guests were eating. SERVERS had to keep going in and out. The food was innovative and tasty except for the duck which was extremely salty do not recommend the duck fish.

I went alone during a vacation, requested to sit out side to enjoy the view. The food was absolutely amazing and the drinks were perfect. The service was very welcoming although I felt forgotten during my entire meal, nearing the end I had given my card after finally receiving my check and it took nearly 20 minutes, It began raining so I tried to get inside the door was stuck and I stood there embarrassingly trying to get inside with no help from the multiple employees that saw me. I got inside and whom I assume was the manager helped me and my check was still unpaid so she took care of that and sent me on my way. I truly enjoyed the meal I was simply underwhelmed by the service.

We were seated immediately at our table. Very good waiters and fast service. The Lychee Martinis and Rum were good.
The bacalaítos were too greasy, the Gyoza were not tasty since it was mostly the outer layer empty inside and the volao pork was not crunchy and the flavor was bland. The view to the Lagoon breathtaking. Went to eat proper dinner at STK after lucky enough there was space available bar seating.

Outstanding in every way; went to celebrate my mother's birthday here yesterday, and we were treated so well from beginning to end. The food and cocktails had phenomenal, intricate flavor profiles. The aesthetic also had a tinge of magical surrealism, and it worked well together. Another triumph by Chef Mario Pagan
