Our strikingly designed Caribbean Asian restaurant brings the spirit of Asia to the heart of Puerto Rico.

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.

    Amazing food and attentive staff, great experience. Ended up on the floor level outside bc I did not specify roof on my reservation but it was still an awesome outdoor dining view at the ground level.

    Loved our dinner and cocktails. RAYA Mai Tai was so delicious. Their menu is so different. The best dish was hamachi which our waiter, Johann recommended. We also ordered the dumplings, maduros stuffed with chorizo and chicharrones lomein. Everything we ordered was delicious. Johann was able to explain each dish clearly and we sat outside overlooking the lagoon. Perfect evening.

    Johan was amazing! Best waiter there! The food and drink were fantastic. We did not have one bad dish or drink. They made our anniversary dinner a special time. Only negative would be the outdoor lighting was harsh. It was brighter then we' prefer. We were offered another table but we were already settled into our seats.

    Unfortunately, we didn't enjoy our experience because the air conditioner was extremely cold. We ask many times for them to turn it down and they said they would and didn't. We asked to be changed to another table that the air wasn't hitting directly but they wouldn't. We ask for the manager, and he try to move us to another table that also has the air condition hitting directly. Finaly, they changed us to a table outside. The food was amazing, but we couldn't enjoy as we hoped for.

    Everything was very good, but we could not enjoy the ambience as our table was hidden in a corner next to the kitchen door. There was also a large party nearby and the noise was very loud. We did enjoy our food very much and the service staff was super friendly. It is just a shame that we had such a hidden table.

    Great service. Great experience. Would definitely return. The brisket was so flavorful. Great portion for two. We started with the lobster spring rolls and chorizo wonton. The chorizo was subtle and not as spicy as we are used to but they were good.

    The food was awesome and the service over the top. There was a large group of men in this small space that were very loud. Large glass windows overlook the lagoon. Bacalaítos was different than expected and a little tough. However, the Shrimp Gyoza and the Duck Pegoa Fried Rice were excellent.

    The wagyu meat is phenomenal!!! Our waiter “Aramis” was spot on with the recommendations throughout the courses, the drinks were awesome and it was a great experience, the “elotes” with the ribs weren’t good tho, but everything else was great!

    Overall experience was good. There was no music outside and ambiance was off. We proceeded to go upstairs to the rooftop which was beautiful BUT very empty and lacking music/ambiance. It has a great potential to have a good ambiance + good food and drinks. Given this I don’t think I would go back because the food was not mind blowing.

    I booked this dinner for the last night of my stay in Puerto Rico because it’s actually in the hotel I stayed in. When I originally booked this reservation, there was a specific menu online. That was not the same menu presented to us at dinner, which was a little disappointing. The ambiance is stellar, and perfect for date night. Although it wasn’t the menu I expected, the food was still delicious, just not as much variety as I expected. The service was really good, and the cocktails were great. While I don’t think I’d return, my meal was really good (Duck Fried Rice). I was just dissatisfied that they changed the menu, and there was no notice that their menu changed frequently. This would be a great first stop, or night cap to round out the night.

    Second year eating here. Food is interesting and outstanding. Service is top notch. Wagu beef sliders, lobster spring rolls, lo Mein with chicken were outstanding. Tuna tartare special was pricey for the portion, but really tasty. Will definitely be back next time in San Juan.

    Service was on point! Very nice restaurant, all plates where good, the restaurant is a fusion between asian and criollo so basically all plates have something fried and something raw. Appetizer: tuna toro w rice- small but savory. Main plate: sea bass, delicious savory and good portion, comes with brussels sprouts. Honey chicken: big portion two can eat from that plate- Savory. Overall is a great place for a date.

    We could only eat outside which was fine so we definitely didn't get the full indoor experience. The inside is very well designed, something I appreciate, and one of the more interesting spaces we've been in all of PR, but it did seem a bit noisy. We had high expectations for Raya because we LOVE their sister restaurant Sage right around the corner. My cocktail was great but we really only enjoyed 1 of our apps. The Kani Crab Rolls were excellent. The Shrimp Gyoza and the Lobster Spring Rolls had a strong fishy flavor and both almost seemed like they had been frozen and reheated. I'm sure that's pretty common for for the price of the restaurant it pretty much sealed our opinion right then. We ordered just one meal, the Mongolian Wagyu Brisket and it was excellent. We also ordered a really good Horchata ice-cream and cake desert that was excellent too. At the end of the day, a meal and parking that cost $200 with one cocktail, one entrée and 3 apps just didn't leave us itching to go back. We live an hour away and with a young toddler we thoroughly investigate any date night restaurant because it's such a effort to get out of the house. Again, waiting staff, hostess, ambiance, and vibe all get 5 stars but the food wasn't anything I'd probably even mention to my friends (except that brisket was great). Sage on the other hand, we've eaten there many times and brought large groups back so Mario def has a hit with that concept. Central in the T Mobile plaza is pretty good too. For my Asian itch, Yoko is the place to beat on the island but it's also impossible to get into and super tiny. It's also half the price so take that as you will.
