Having heard so much about Rafael before my visit, maybe my expectations were too high. Don’t get me wrong, the food was good. Probably the initial disappointment was that Rafael does not offer any non-alcoholic cocktails, something pretty much all other good restaurants in Lima...More

This is a fantastic restaurant. Italian inspired cuisine in a fairly formal setting. Food was very tasty and service was good. Definitely worth checking out.

One of the best restaurants in their neighborhood. Casual and comfy. Understated but excellent menu, food and service. Prices are reasonable. Easy walk from Parque Kennedy and Larco Mar. Highly recommended.

The bar area has normal lounge type tables (which you can eat at). The bar itself is with stools - and higher in height, much like any standard bar...
