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.

We really enjoyed sitting at the bar and having drinks as well as dining there. The service was good, the staff very friendly and the food and drinks were great. I really enjoy the ambiance of Ray's and I love the view.

We came around 9pm for dessert and a peek at manta rays. We eventually saw a couple of rays, but it was really too dark for a good look, so go at sunset. As for dessert, a bit disappointing- loved the lillikoi frozen cheesecake, but skip the tropical bread pudding.
