Description: Rays on the Bay Restaurant is known for its fresh seafood, farm-to-table cooking, handmade artisan pizzas,local island favorites and the coldest beer on the Big Island. Guests will enjoy warm and welcoming service, ocean front views, live entertainment 7 days a week and of course the chance to see live Manta Rays feeding in the ocean directly infront of the restaurant. Rays is also the best spot to see a brilliant and romantic sunset while you gather with friends to enjoy hand crafted cocktails, pupus or dinner.

Great food and great service. Highly recommend the ribs which the chef says he seasons repeatly for three days! Best location for Manta viewing and with tables right on the water. Make sure to make a reservation as it is very popular :)

they have a really beautiful view--the sunset is beautiful, nice and interactive staff, sadly didn't make up for the flavourless food :-( which is of course on the pricey side given their location

We ate here 4 times as we stayed at the resort for 2 weeks. After our first visit, it is amazing we returned, but given it was the only choice without getting in the car....We had a better experience with the following three visits. The reason for our poor experience was partially our waiter, Jacob, who was rude and sarcastic. We enjoyed the servers we had on the remaining visits.
