    Good food and service again

    Not my first visit to Rafael's. Again the food was great with the duck breast a perfect pink in an excellent Cumberland sauce. Cheesecake was good but could perhaps have been better with more passion fruit to balance out the lemon curd.

    Birthday dinner

    Lovely evening for my son's birthday. Excellent service and fabulous food. The owner/chef explained menu to us from a blackboard. Wide variety and happy to adapt to suit individuals. Cosy friendly atmosphere.

Using Scottish ingredients to serve a mix of classic Spanish and Mediterranean dishes with a twist, Rafael’s is friendly and homely and you are always guaranteed a warm welcome.

Daily changing menu, relaxed surroundings

Rafael’s has high standards in and out of the kitchen, and it is this care and attention to detail in both food and service that has been the secret to Rafael’s success.
