This "bistro" style place is open only for dinners. Seating is limited so call in your reservation. The menu changes with the season. Service is good. Prices tend to be higher than average but you get what you pay for; delicious and beautifully presented meals that will keep you returning.

Awesome food in a very intimate environment. Style of the restaurant is a little country for my tastes, but the food was excellent and the staff did an excellent job with our group of 15. Price was very good for what we got and everyone walked out with a smile on their face and a belly full of food. Looking forward to visiting again when I am back in Salem.

I celebrated my 30th birthday here with family and friends and absolutely was so happy I choose this gem of a restaurant. The service was amazing, intimate, friendly and one of a kind. The food was perfect and tasted so fresh and delicious and can accommodate anyone’s palate. The owners were so great to work with and I am sincerely grateful for their service.

Rafns is a wonderful place for dinner. The setting is beautiful and yet relaxed and comfortable. The service was attentive (thanks, Michael!) but not intrusive. And the food was really wonderful. Highly recommended!
