“Fantastic meal at the Rucculo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We celebrated our friend's potential purchase of a property in the Algarve by eating at the Rucculo and what a good choice!
Great food, great service, great restaurant - the fillet steak with goat's cheese was divine - reasonable prices and well worth a trip. Not to be missed!

“Best food and service in alvor by a mile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This is without doubt the best restaraunt in Alvor. The service from the moment you enter to the moment you leave is superb. The food is also excellent and extremely good value. The house wines were also of a very high standard and again were excellently priced. i could have happily eaten there every night of our stay.

“This is the best restaurant in Alvor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Had a really lovely meal at Ruccula. Everything was first class, the steak, the wine the atmosphere. We are never disappointed there, the staff go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your evening. The restaurant was full at a time when the rest of Alvor is struggling, so this shows how highly thought of this restaurant is.

“Best Ribeye in town”

Ruccola is very consistent, always nice to see the same staff year after year and the Ribeye of the special board in garlic butter sauce was the simply outragously good!

“One of thebest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Having just returned from our most recent trip to Alvor and after eating in this restaurant on many occasions, thought it was about time we out our review in. This is without doubt the best place to eat in Alvor. Staff very friendly and make you feel welcome. Richard the owner is always welcoming and please to see you. Would recommend pre-booking as always busy
