We have been going to Ruccula every year since it opened and have never been disappointed. The staff are great and the food is first class. The chef's signature dish is the lamb shank - but everything is good. Lovely to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the sunset over dinner. It's so popular you really need to book ahead if possible.

Lots of people recommended this restaurant to us and we were not disappointed. The staff were very attentive without being all over you. The menu was vast and the food was amazing. One of the best meals we've had. Very reasonable too. Look forward to returning in September!

Came here after recommendation's and was really happy. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Food was lovely. Had the lamb shanks and my wife had tiger prawns and she said they were really nice. No issues with our child and buggy and supplied a nice dinner for him. Will be back and happy with everything.

We visit Alvor 2-3 times each year and without doubt Ruccula is the best restaurant in Alvor and indeed one of the best restuarant's that my family and I have been to. The food, staff, location and ambience etc are all first class. We would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant although it can be very hard to get a table if you do not book well ahead. (3-4 weeks in peak season)
