The food is delicious and the service is excellent. Seafood is the speciality. They also make a delicious piscosour right in front of you!! Unfortunately no options in the menu for vegetarians.

Gourmet at all, from the starter until the last served dish. Great natural juices, the real and well done Pisco Sour is here, even personally prepared at your table... great Peruvian fusion gourmet done. Congrats to all the staff. Really high level in all, presentation,serving, environment, all. Fully recommended.

All the dishes are great, the waiters are professionals, the owners are an extremely charming couple and the vibe is just so perfect. Would keep coming back again and again. Strongly recommend then ceviche, the wagyu steaks, the lomo salteado and... More

I am living in Arica for a bit more then a year, but I visited Rayu a few times. The food is delicious, the waiters are friendly and the location is perfect. Also the perfect place to spend a Saturday evening with friends. A very recommendable place to go to!!
