SINCE 1958: OUR HISTORY
In 1958 the two young brothers Rafael and Rodrigo Andrés, originally from a small town in Guadalajara, they opened for the first time the doors of the Rafa seafood restaurant in Madrid, in its current location on Calle Narváez, 68.
What in its beginnings was a small winery in which portions were served to accompany the wines, little by little and thanks to the work and the dedication of the years expanded into a dining room, growing from room to room, until it became the restaurant it is today.
His jump to the seafood restaurant was almost anecdotal, when one Christmas …
Rafael and Rodrigo, decided to buy seafood, however and due to their ignorance, the genre was not fresh and they could not sell it. Far from discouraging them, the experience prompted them to provide themselves with the best seafood on the Spanish coast , something they have not stopped doing since then.
Currently and for more than 30 years, the Restaurante Rafa is run by Rafa (Rafael’s son) and Miguel Ángel (Rodrigo’s son), maintaining the essence of the house: top quality product and seasonal cuisine with an innovative contribution.
In more than fifty years of history this house has been characterized by the excellence of its raw material and careful traditional cuisine . All stews, meats, fish and seafood are prepared following the original recipes.
Going to Rafa is to find the best seafood: red shrimp, crayfish or barnacles of excellent quality, without forgetting the best fish and meat, and the exquisite game dishes in season.
