“Fine if you only want expensive fish”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

This was not a great experience. Little interest shown in us until we had found ourselves a seat having spent 5 minutes searching without he help of staff. If you like fish you'll be happy with the menu, but if not you'll be very limited. I felt the meal we had was very overpriced at €186 for four of us (one vegetarian meal an four fish). In my opinion there is equally as good available elsewhere at a far better price.

“Beware”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

This restaurant is down some steps on the beach. No menu on display until you get in the restaurant. Very pricey for what you get and nothing special.

“Best Restaurant in Albufeira!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014


Ruina is definitely a must when visiting Albufeira!
Start off by choosing your starter from a selection of salads at the window or the delicious fish soup they offer, then choose your main from a selection of fresh fishes. If you prefer they also have other dishes to offer, however the fish is the star!

The you are seated and just enjoy the location and view! The restaurant has a terrace directly on the beach or you can have a table inside or on the roof top.

Be sure to take a jacket for dinner as it tends to get chilly.

“Hits the spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Fantastic view and fantastic food. Seaford galore and the filet mignon is right up there with the best available. Reccomended.
