    Nuestra experiencia en Raphael Peruvian Cuisine fue simplemente espectacular. Desde el momento en que entramos hasta el último bocado, cada aspecto de nuestra visita fue una celebración de la cocina peruana auténtica y deliciosa. Para empezar, el Mahi Mahi Tiradito fue una elección brillante. La frescura del pescado se combinaba perfectamente con la salsa, creando una explosión de sabores en cada bocado. La presentación era una obra de arte en sí misma, con finas láminas de pescado dispuestas de manera elegante en el plato. Los Anticuchos, esas brochetas de carne marinada y asada, fueron un verdadero placer para el paladar. La marinada aportaba un sabor delicioso a la carne, acompañados papas con chimichurri, brussel sprouts y una salsa espectacular! Los anticuchos me hicieron sentir como si me hubiese teletransportado a Lima! El Pulpo al Grill es un plato que requiere habilidad para lograr la textura perfecta, y en Raphael lo han dominado. El pulpo estaba tierno, el Ink Risotto estaba irresistible. También probamos el Cochinillo, un clásico de la cocina peruana. La carne jugosa y la combinación de especias en el carapulcra lo convierten en un plato verdaderamente memorable. En resumen, nuestra elección de platos en Raphael Peruvian Cuisine fue excelente. Cada bocado fue una experiencia sensorial que superó nuestras expectativas. Desde la frescura de los ingredientes hasta la habilidad en la preparación. Definitivamente 100% recomendado! A la próxima vamos a probar el Pulpo al Olivo y el Lomo Saltado!

    Raphael's food is of high quality and creation, therefore I can justify the price. I love that he is bringing Peruvian cuisine to Ottawa, but for the price, the service has to be top shape as well. The waitresses seemed very distracted - the drinks and flow of the meal was very slow, eve though there were several servers. Otherwise, a great experience.

    I moved to Ottawa about 1 year ago. So far I had not been to a restaurant that impressed me. But this place finally did! The food and drinks were amazing! The interior of the restaurant is very nice and the service was great. I think this is the best restaurant in Ottawa! The price is also great for the quality of the food.

    We decided to try a new place for our anniversary and chose Raphael’s. The server Mustafa went out of his way to make sure that our experience was a memorable one. His attention, suggestions, and overall service was praiseworthy. The food was very flavourful. We would definitely go back again.

    We ordered 4 small plates for 2 of us & found them all flavourful & enjoyable. The vegetable dish was the home run winner. Our server was friendly & polite. Lighting is low. Noise level is fairly high. When our busser brought our dishes to the table he placed 6 dishes on the table (there were 4 of us) & did not identify any of the dishes. We had to call our server over to identify what each dish was. The wine list is fairly pedestrian. I think it would be wise to upgrade. And I think our server could have been more attentive with our drink requirements. The green salad could maybe be a bit more interesting (although the dried zucchini & corn were a nice contrast). The chef is very creative & each dish was a multiplicity of ingredients. He blances them nicely.

    The service was quite slow. It took 45 minutes before we received our food, even though few tables were occupied at that point. (We had an early dinner.) Some of the food was excellent but the seafood was encrusted in a lot of deep-fried breadcrumbs, so much so that the squid was hard to find. The round tables for two diners are very small. There was no coat rack -- surprising for a place that clearly aims to offer fancy dining.

    This restaurant deserves every kind word, and your time and money. The food. Wow. Unique, fresh, incredibly flavourful, beautiful. To step into this establishment and try any dish is to travel and experience very unique incredients and flavours that you likely have never had before. And it will change the way you think about many of those ingredients. The service. You will be taken care of by a very helpful, patient human that genuinely cares about your involvement with flavours. Our server, Kimia, was very understanding with our slew of questions, from portion size, to balancing of flavours, to wanting us to have the most varied experience. She walked us through favourite dishes, explained what we would experience very well without ruining surprises, and we genuinely loved each dish she helped us select. The drinks were wonderful, a cocktail and wine list included some wonderful options to complement just about anything on the menu. Music was never too loud, so conversations were easy and not too shouty. Spacing in the dining room felt thoughtful, enough space to keep conversations and space precious, and left room for the server to access the table without interrupting the next. The amuse bouche was a nice surprise, and so delicious, and a bonus dessert tasting from the pasty chef was kind, and a perfect wrap up after our dessert and aperitif. We’ll be back, this restaurant is incredible, has a constantly changing menu to keep experiences fresh, and offers incredible value with each dish and every human that puts their hard work into every inch of the place. Recommended, 11/10.

    busy on a Friday night with a high noise level, service good, very friendly but a little slow maybe because it was Friday night. Food was great to good, Only complaint is about the pulpo al grill which tasted OK but consisted mainly of squid colored rice and very little octopus. For $46 I expect more.
