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 my firts time at Raya and what a great experience, food was delicious. We had to seat outside because there was no reservations available inside, and even though there was little noise with the cars passing back and forth, the food experience was so good that we didn't mind. The truffle edamame was really good so definitely recommend. Main dishes we had tuna poke bowl, pork belly and mongolian kobe brisket, they were all delicious, brisket a little dry but great flavor and huge serving. We had all 3 desserts recommended by our server who by the way was awesome, pudding, yuzu cream rolls and buñuelos, there was no leftovers, right amount of sweetness and delicate flavors. Lovely dinner all together. Will definitely return.

    This is the third time we have dinner at Raya. Main problem is that the food all have similar taste. As the cheff tried to recreate an Asian-Caribbean fusion, i guess, Asian taste predominate all over.

    This was my second time here. First time was great, this time not so much. Food was really salty and definitely not worth the $$$$. Also, I drank 2 glasses of water in a highball glass and was charged $16. I ordered wine too. That’s a money grab by the restaurant. I would not recommend.

    The food was A-MAZING! So creative and so full of flavor. The Shrimp Gyoza and Lobster Speing Rolls were sooo good!! The Duck Pegao and Wagyu Briskett were 🔥. Our table service was fantastic, but cocktail service was a bit slow due to being understaffed. But the cocktails were excellent! Definitely recommend!!

    I've been to Raya there three times. The first thing that must be noted is that Raya is a nice bistro, not a restaurant. Great ambiance and decor. The bar is superb! Great creative and well prepared drinks by an obviously well prepared bartender. In terms of food, there are excepcional dishes on the menu but others are not at the same level. Service is acceptable but a little slow. During this visit we returned one of the accompaniments (charred brussel sprouts which were grossly overcooked and sour) and the waitress simply took the plate away without neither offering to redo the dish or a replacement. No apologies either. Most of the times we needed something in our table we would have to call the waitress and wait until she would give us attention. The service is lacking in details towards the customer,; e.g. failure to make specific offers to the client unless they were responding to one of our questions. This beautiful place deserves better.
