We ordered Syadyeh and meat with rice, both were less than average! Appetizers are good. The place is nice but there was a party near by with loud music we couldn't enjoy the place !

A great fixed menu of tasty Lebanese food with good drinks and authentic live music. You can sit outside by the water which is a nice view, although sometimes the water smells a bit. Would recommend for a fun night out with a good meal at decent prices.

The restaurant is situated in the Marina area and has some really great views. There is huge amount of food choices - while this does offer something for every one, it does also lead to a lack of quality in some dishes. The starters are outstanding, and were greatly enjoyed. The mains offering was decent, but by far the disappointment... More

We've been in Bahrain for little over a year and can't believe we haven't tried Rayes before. Now i know what we were missing. Our friends told us to try it out. we just had one of the most amazing dining experiences in Bahrain so far. The location, the place, the set-up, the food and the service will sweep you... More

Food is great, been there several times for brunch on Fridays. Great choices and great varieties. Sometimes the music is a bit loud specially with live one man show. Its split in two areas, smoking and non smoking. Should try it if in the region.

They have an excellent food.. Its like a home made food! Its very tasty that you cant get enough... I give it four stars because of the location and the decoration need renovation.. The quality of the place is nothing comparing to the quality of food... I will definitely go again :))

Undoubtedly, Rayes offers the finest Lebanese cuisine on the island. Not only does it have the best Lebanese food, but it also lays claim to the ultimate location, situated right on the waterfront overlooking the marina with Muharraq skyline rising off in the distance. Dine al fresco while listening to the waves crash along shoreline or sit inside and take in Coral Bay's new lavish decor with large open windows that look out over the water while being serenaded by live Arabian music. Whether you want to relax by the sea and catch up with friends or entertain business clients over lunch or dinner, Rayes is the ideal rendezvous for almost any occasion. Its scenic waterfront location, modern interior decor, live music and exquisite Lebanese cuisine are certain to impress even the most discerning guests.
