    From start to finish, Raphael was pure perfection! Warm and cozy decor, excellent service, small but perfect wine list, beautiful presentation, and delicious food! Had the rockfish jaleo and ate yuca for the first time. The dish was amazing with a lovely presentation. The dipping sauces were superb! Really enjoyed the spicy one that added to the yuca. Highly recommended for a night out with friends.

    Good spot for an evening out, however we would expect better quality service to go along with the vibe the restaurant is aiming for. There were a series of mishaps that made some moments awkward and disappointing, which led to an average experience overall. We tried a variety of plates and some were better than others. Price point a bit high. Worth a try.

    We loved the food, the drinks and the ambiance was really nice. However, the service was a bit slow and we found that it is overall a bit overpriced, given the size of the portions.

    It was a party for our tastebuds! The Tiradito de conchas stood out with a refreshing flavor, the braised duck just melted in our mouths and we really enjoyed our main course Asado Criollo (we were happy to see this dish back on the menu). The restaurant has a nice vibe and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Great cocktails as well!

    One of those menus with so many great sounding options it’s hard to choose. Big flavors, beautiful restaurant, fun vibe. Quality, attentive service is hard to find lately, but everyone we met was friendly, and gave great recommendations. Made us feel very taken care of. And I learned I love pisco. Any occasion, check this place out.

    Constantly good food since the beginning. Our first visit to the Byward Market location on Clarence Street did not disappoint. On the pricey side though, expect to pay around $200 for 3 shared dishes, 2 cocktails and 1 desert.

    Ce joyau ce retouve sur la rue populaire et achanlandée Clarence dans le marché By d'Ottawa. Dès que l'on y entre, une ambiance lounge chic mais aussi relaxante nous attend. Nous recevons un accueil chaleureux des hôtesses. La musique et le décor rappellent l'Amérique du Sud avec une touche moderne rafraichissante. Les plats délicieux et artistiques permettent de naviguer dans une expérience culinaire unique dans la région d'Ottawa-Gatineau. Les plats sont expliqués par le serveur avec soin. Nous sommes arrivées pour une réservation à 17h30 un jeudi, et à l'heure de notre dépaet vers 20h, le restaurant était presque alors rempli, mais il était toujours possible de tenir une conversation aisément. Félicitations pour l'ouverture du nouvel emplacement du restaurant Lizardo (chef et propriétaire) ainsi qu'à ton équipe!

    We had such a lovely time. Service, ambiance, and attention to detail; nothing was over looked. The only thing better, was the food. Love and quality craftsmanship was poured into each dish. And those on this site that might scoff at the prices, they aren’t the ones you want to listen to. If you care more about the quality of the ingredients and the care that was used to prepare them, then you will surely love your meal at Raphaël Peruvian Cuisine.

    It was their first night at the Clarence location so the service was a bit slower and a little disorganized which is to be expected. Water cups were cleared off the tables while we were still working on dessert which was odd. We would have like to order another round of drinks after our plates were cleared but wasn't really given an opportunity before being presented with our bill. The food was good but the portions, and taste did not live up to the price point at which they were charging. The overall atmosphere was a very warm, fun and welcoming dining experience.

    $49 for a tiny portion of Lomo Saltado is absurd. Will never visit again and I would not recommend going. Food is good but not good enough to justify the prices. Better options for cheaper in Ottawa/Gatineau.

    Raphael Express’ chef and team deliver a top rated service. The food is tasty, loyal to its roots and cooked/served with a distinctive and very enjoyable gourmet twist in terms of flavours, colours and texture. The service is fast and the approach of the servers is warm and friendly. Important to note that the quality of their dishes is consistently high whether you dine-in, you go for a take-out or if you get your food delivered.

    Great cuisine, this is the second time I've eaten here. The menu/food is accessible to people trying Peruvian food for the first time. The ambiance is great, the pisco tasted great and the three of us had a great meal and drinks. Service was excellent, positive and they didn't rush us out even though we stayed 30mins or so past closing. Will go again.

    Hidden gem - off the beaten track - urban warehouse vibe. Amazing menu and service. Our server was helpful and enthusiastic about the menu. Introduced us to Peruvian delicacies and history of various dishes. Attentive and friendly. We were a larger group including teens - everyone loved it. Beautiful cocktails. Go for Pisco sour at sunset and sit outside!
