About us

Raphaël Express brings Chef Lizardo Becerra's Peruvian food to Ottawa. Enjoy a seasonally evolving menu that features Ocean Wise-recommended seafood, bold Peruvian ingredients, Pisco-based cocktails and a fun atmosphere.

Open since April 2021, this (rather) hidden gem brings a taste of Peru to you! Our dine-in space, called the Warique, offers freshly prepared food in a fun and unpretentious setting.

We also offer takeout - order online through this website or phone us at 343.463.3590 - and delivery with Getit Local, UberEats and Doordash!

Finding us at 232-250 City Centre Ave

We have been told that we are a hidden gem. When you turn onto City Centre Ave, drive to the end of the road, beyond Orange Gallery. Turn right, and drive up the ramp that takes you to the back of the building (250 City Centre Ave) on the second level. You'll find us at Unit 232. Please, don't hesitate to phone us at 343.463.3590 if you have any questions!


  • Best restaurant in town so far so good. You will travel to Peru 🇵🇪 with the food and have a excellent time. And best thing is you will fell like you are at your "casa".
  • This is the best Peruvian restaurant in Ottawa. Chef Lizardo is a master in the cooking art that not only pleases their customers’ taste buds but also their eyes in every single occasion. Food is well prepared, well seasoned, authentic to the Peruvian cuisine, balanced, colourful and fresh. Pro tip: Make your order well in advance as the place can get super busy at times. If you choose the curbside pickup service, the restaurant pampers you with a beautiful postcard-like message and, of course, delicious and very well served food.
  • A true luxury to eat at Raphaël Express. Its entire menu exudes the creativity and great talent of Chef Lizardo Becerra. The ingredients are fresh and the perfect balance of flavors that it achieves in each dish are simply overwhelming. My favorites, Tuna Tiradito, excellent service and very warm atmosphere.
