    Everything was so delicious and flavourful, healthy portion sizes for the mains and small plates alike, lots of fun cocktails and wine pairings to choose from.

    Sitting at the bar is nice only that the front door opening and closing when the weather is cold makes it unpleasant for dining with cold air rushing in.

    Raphael Peruvian Cuisine has a vibrant friendly atmosphere where you almost feel like you're in Peru. The servers are knowledgeable and efficient and the food is delicious. We reserved for 6 pm dinner when the restaurant was fairly quiet, but by 8 pm, it was hopping. Highly recommend this restaurant for a lovely evening out.

    This was our first time at this restaurant. We had a set menu for Valentine’s Day. Every course was delicious, well portioned and filling. Each course was interesting with a great mix of tastes. I would recommend the pisco sour cocktail to start. Their wine list is also varied. We were given a rose at the end of the meal which was a special touch. The restaurant has a nice vibe with plants creating a soft and intimate setting. We’re definitely coming back to try their regular menu.

    One of my favourite restaurants in Ottawa. I’ve been dining there or ordering from the City Centre location during the pandemic. Love Peruvian food! Only the dessert was a bit of a let down. Doña Manuela was a bit ordinary. But the appetizers were the best! I love their Elgin location. Super busy, great vibe!

    If Michelin gave stars in Canada, these guys could probably get a star. The food was fantastic. There weren't many people when we went in, but because of the hard surfaces was fairly noisy. We will definitely be back

    You should put at least one or 2 more options that are not marine food as well as the main course. Maybe it’s because your restaurant wants to reach more Canadians customers but as a Peruvian asado ( even if it’s ossobuco) with mash potatoes is food for patients in a hospital. You should give another option maybe with some pasta a la huancaina or risotto in aji Amarillo sauce. Just an idea…

    Raphael's menu is creative and offers interesting options. The staff, in particular Mika (apologies if I misspell her name!) was so passionate about the food and her knowledge of it was outstanding. The food presentation is so amazing you don't want to eat but of course we ate every morsel. I will be back!
