The service was great and food was amazing. The T- bone was over 3 pounds! Try the pastas as well. Good place to take the family or a date.

Came here twice for food while on holiday in Croatia, had a great experience on both visits. If you're a steak lover you have got to have the big steak here. It is the largest I have ever had 1.5kg and one of the best! I did think the quality may be compromised given the price so ordered a peppercorn... More

Beautiful place with a very friendly and warm atmosphere. The food is so tasty and full of flavour, but the best meal to order is barbecue meat. You wont be left hungry or dissapointed.

Came to Rafaelo's at lunch time, ordered linguini alfredo with small shrimp, the portion was so big that 2 of us could not finish. Service was quick, food tasted just fine, and the waiter was polite.

This place is just a place where you can get regular meat and fries meal. The location is nothing special, the food is "just ok", the staff is again very regular. I see that many reviews were unpleasantly surprised with the service, there was nothing good not especially bad with it in my case... again, just "average" eatery.

Food was fine & portions large but evening was marred by shocking attitude of waiter. Unable to appreciate food for this reason. We had called in earlier & reserved table however on return the waiter we spoke to looked blank & said we did not!! After eventually finding us table he was rude & abrupt throughout the service.
