I have dined here 3 times and each time it has been a great evening. The atmosphere is lovely, the waiters are friendly, especially Joad who was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list! The bread basket they give you to start with is amazing - the best bread in Peru. All the dishes we tried were fabulous... More

Just enjoyed a lovely evening - tapas, drinks and good company! The service was exceptional and even though they were booked out they still managed to make us feel very welcome.

We looked up nearby restaurants on the iphone and nearly walked past this one. It was just 2 blocks from our Hotel, the Radisson in Miraflores, but there is no sign out front, just a guy in a suit. We walked right past him then turned around, certain that this was where it showed on the map. Sure enough, when... More

I booked wrongly for 8 instead of 9; however, when I arrived, they could fix the problem quickly. The food was great every single dish that we ordered was outstanding with the exception of the spagethis that I expected more.

Beautiful food, impeccable service without being pretentious, worth every single dollar . I absolutely love the way food was presented, every single dish had lots textures and flavours, bread was to die for.

The place serves good food in a buzzy atmosphere. Enjoyed all the dishes (apps better than mains as in many places) although the sardegnian gnocchi's broth was too salty. The seafood incorporated in the dishes was awesome (thinking mainly of an egg tortilla topped with several large pieces of fairly luscious uni).

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.
