Lima: Restaurante Rafael

SLO | Jan 13, 2008 05:25 PM

I can't figure out why this amazing restaurant doesn't get the props it deserves. Just got back from 3 weeks in Peru and this was the absolute best meal of the trip if not the best we've had in many years. In addition to great food, there is a great local vibe.

Had seared scallops, crunchy shrimp tempura, goat cheese gnocchi and those were just the starters. The fish was amazing as was the lobster risotto.

We also ate at Tanta, part of the Astrid & Gaston group, great fun as was their takeaway sandwich place (forgot the name).

Need a reservation, go and enjoy!
