Great experience, amuse bouche, starter and main course all excellent. Disappointed that our first, second or third choice wines weren't available but settled on a very good bottle of Malbec. Pricy, but not overly so. Very busy, good buzzy atmosphere and didn't feel hurried.

Rafael certainly doesn’t need a good review from me to fill the seats. At this point, you can barely get in! The food is amazing - whoever heard of Macadamia bubbles?
I am writing this review to thank the staff of Rafael for being so gracious to my husband and I. We went to Rafael without a reservation on a night that, through some act of aligning planets, they were able to seat us at a table in the bar. The staff was more than gracious to us, even though we were dressed in casual clothing and were, obviously, not regular customers. It is refreshing and worthy of comment, when people who have every right to be condescending, choose to be gracious and lovely hosts.
Do make a reservation well in advance in case the planets don’t align for you.

By chance Raphael is just in front of my hotel. You can stay on the br and have a nice dinner with excellent food and fabulous cocktails
