Unbelievable food and service! So beautifully prepared and interesting, artisanal dishes. We had a great and extremely knowledgeable waiter from a Portugal who enhanced our experience that much more!

We ended having lunch here by mistake. Since we had a flight to catch we couldn't be exactly choosy. The tiradito was yummy. (I did not notice that I ordered this dish everywhere I went in peru, until my friend pointed this out...so I am a tiradito lover and might just be a tiradito expert...it was good...but not the best...the...

We had heard of Rafael's through our cooking teacher and decided to try it. WOW! The scallops are literally to die for. On top of that the lamb meatballs with curry sauce and noodles with duck sausage were delicious. The evening was topped off with excellent service and a great atmosphere. My only regret is Rafael's is in Lima and... More

Make reservations a few weeks in advance, it's a very small restaurant. The food was excellent! Service was great.

The four people at the table agreed to visit Rafael after analyzing various options. Decision based on referrals from friends and menu's offer, which combines the best of traditional country kitchen with new trends of fusion cuisine. The truth is that we were not wrong and we agree on the wisdom of the selection.

Recommend this restaurant because the food was great and the wine selection and prices were ok. As far as service, they need to work on it. We went without having a reservation so I do not know if that means that if you get a table you have to be thankful enough at everything you get afterwards. Plates took a... More

Love this place, the atmosphere, the food, the service. It's a small cozy place. The plates are small so you might not get full but for me it wasn't an inconvenience because the qualify and detail in the food is amazing. At the moment my favorite in Lima.

We ate here Sept 1st for my daughters birthday. We chose this place due to the good reviews. When ordering a table we was told they were fully booked but we could be seated at the bar with the same food menu. We arrived and was seated at a table close to bar so was happy! Food was quite nice,... More

The original plates we ordered, the lobster and the crab, they were out of them. The seafood is fresh and cooked to order. The lamb meatballs in curry sauce where out if this world and the fresh fish of the day, akishizo style made up for the lobster I missed.
