Bringing a taste of Peru to you

Inspiration for Peruvian cuisine is gathered from the country’s multiple microclimates that span its coastal, jungle and mountainous regions. Periods of Peru’s history influence the tastes and techniques that you will experience here. Using some of Canada’s finest staple foods while sourcing ingredients directly from Peru, our chefs are spoiled with a diversity of flavours to play with...

… and play they do! Our menu offers
small(er) plates that invite you to experience the best of what Peru’s fierce and intrepid culinary culture has to offer. 
We welcome you to Raphaël Peruvian Cuisine, our expression of confidence
in the future!

  • 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.
