We were on the main strip in Milaflores and not happy with what we saw for restaurants, my iPhone came through for us and recommended Rafael's :-) No reservation so 4 of us ended up sitting at the bar and it was SO worth it. The Maitre'd took us under his wing and helped make the evening special. Towards the... More

Saturday night diner. Very busy, and extremely noisy specially in the bar area where diner is also seven. Having said that the food was excellent and worth a couple of stars in a french guide. Service was correct. Pricey

We had a great dinner there while we were in town. Their Pisco Sours were very good, and so was the Guinea Pig! We really wanted to try that while we were in Peru, and it was fantastic! Nice place, and the service was very good.

Forever and ever, amen. We had a great family dinner there, and enjoyed every course we ordered. The tacos were my favorite but the lamb was also delicious. Additionally, they very competently handled the gluten free dietary restriction.

There is a lot of hype here and it might be the cool place to be, but we were seriously underwhelmed. There was confusion over our reservation and the hostess was rather rude. Our concierge had made the reservation and evidently it was not in the books. After a bit we were given a bar at the table (which was... More

The food was delicious and nice service, but the only downside was a rather heavy deco and not that relaxed atmosphere. The drink list was very extensive with a large selection of piscos. The food menu was typical Lima/Peruvian selection of dishes with a hint of modern interpretation. the tuna carpaccio was nice, but the seafood tiradito was exccellent. For... More

Rafael was amazing. My boyfriend and I arrived just after they opened on a Saturday night. Although we didn't have a reservation, they made room for us at a small table near the bar. Our sever was very happy and helpful. We shared a starter and two pasta dishes before ordering dessert. The scallops had a particularly nice flavor. I... More

The food and the service was great. But I would like the meal suzes to be bigger (was not enough for me and my wife). Expect 20-25 USD for a main meal (2016).
