Quality food & attention to detail is spot on. You don’t need to be sitting on the marina to get a great dining experience. Luis cares about what he puts out on your table. Great service as well. Daryl

Rafael is a quiet restaurant in one of the Dom Pedro hotels, although managed by an outsider. Staff is friendly, but not very professional. Food is very good though. Pity the couvert starters do not include the typical "cenouras alimadas". I had a good prawn...More
