Rafagino restaurant


About Us

Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. In those rare instances when we might not meet your expectations, I promise two things: First, that it was not for lack of effort, for negligence or merely for dereliction of duty. Second, that we will try even harder next time. We might not always succeed but we will absolutely always try. As the proverb goes; if at first you don't succeed... you know the rest.

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.

A quarter of a century plus - Rafagino Restaurant just had its 27th anniversary on 01/04/2021. Thank you for being a part of our success and longevity.

Events - ​Monthly Wine Dinner -Please join us on Sunday, April 25th at 5:30pm for a 5-course wine dinner featuring the delicious food and wines of Portugal.

Often overlooked in the past, Portuguese cuisine is now being called Europe’s best cuisine. Although Portugal introduced hot chiles to Asia, tea to England, and tempura to Japan, the country’s cuisine still remains a mystery to most food lovers outside of its borders.  The roots of Portuguese food lie in both native peasant cookery and the ingredients obtained through trade routes established many centuries ago. Bread, rice, spices, pastries, sausages, and seafood — especially cod — remain the staples of many Portuguese meals. Portuguese food marries locally sourced ingredients (especially fish, seafood, pork and game) with a straightforward preparation that lets the flavors shine through with the predominant dressing for grills and roasts being olive oil, garlic and lemon, though coriander, cumin and paprika are commonly used in cooking. From the best seafood in the world to the most sought after and most tender black-foot pig, to the ever present dry-salted codfish and some of the world’s best olive oil, the secret is out.

To top it all off, Portugal as a whole has the highest quality production of wines at extremely reasonable prices in the world. Best price-quality ratio, period. With an immense variety of grapes only rivaled by Italy, the industry keeps on producing amazing new wines from obscure varietals at a rate not seen anywhere else. If you’re not yet familiar with them, you’ll soon come to relish a refreshing glass of vinho verde on a hot summer day, or a gutsy Alentejo red with your grilled meat, or a Bordeaux-like elegant Douro wine such as Touriga Nacional with any meal.

Come and taste it for yourself! We hope you can join us!
