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!

We are temporarily closed as we move to a new location. Thank you to everyone who supported us while we were open!


  • 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.
