This restaurant is so popular we had to book 10 days in advance. Staff and chef Richard are very friendly and welcoming. We return each year and have sampled various dishes which are all fantastic and really good value. Tom and Olive

Very disappointed, having visited Ruccula 2 years ago with a friend, we couldnt manage to get in last year as we were last minute and they booked up.

This year, decided to be ahead of myself and emailed them 2M before we were due to go to book last Saturday night on the terrace as it was my birthday. No reply, re-emailed them a month later with a read receipt on the email and to date I still have no reply !!!

Bad news Ruccala, we went to the Faustinos Steak House on the main strip and spent over £300 on our meal and night out - I cannot fault their food or service or atmosphere. An absolutely excellent place to go.

You need to book a table befor you go on holiday because it is that popular you will not get in. Any of the starters are amazing, I had the spring roll in sweet chilli sauce and my husband had the cod goujons all i can say is i wanted more they were both sooooo delicious. Main meals are also great not being a red meat eater myself I would reccomend the chicken breast with mozzarella and tomato, but if you love steak the Fillet Steak is highly reccommended. A must have is the dauphinoise potatoes also amazing!!!!
