We are just home from our holiday in Alvor yesterday- we had the pleasure of eating in this fine restaurant on Friday night- thankfully i booked it 3 weeks before going on holidays. I can't praise your restaurant enough! As a family of 5 we really enjoyed our meal from start to finish! And so reasonable too! Before leaving we tried to book again for another night but unfortunately it was booked up until the beginning of September! Thank you for a lovely meal and Will definitely Will be back on our next visit! Keep up the good work!

After two attempts finally got a table in Ruccula on Sat 24th Aug. The welcome was warm and the staff professional and friendly. The food outstanding. The fillet beef with goats cheese was a special and it didn't dissappoint. The carmel tart was another highlight. Tripadvisor getting it 100% on this one there is no doubt!!

Ruccula is our favourite restaurant. We visit Alvor every year and were lucky enough to go to Ruccula's twice this year. On arrival you are greeted in a friendly and swift manner to your table. We sat on the terrace which is lovely with views of the harbour. The staff are fantastic take the time to chat to you and talk through any dishes you might have questions on.
I had the cod goujons for starter the first time which I can thoroughly recommend and the second time I had the special which was haddock fishcakes! They were so yummy, sometimes fishcakes can be quite heavy these were perfect fluffy and light! For my mains I had the breaded chicken which was lovely and the second time again the special of Steak with Goats cheese on top. The steak was perfectly cooked and I love the poached pears on the side of the dish makes it really unusual. The restaurant is reasonably priced, especially when you take the service and food quality in to account. We will be back next year keep up the good work guys :) The Nelsons

We have a house in Alvor so we visit this restaurant at least twice when we are there. The quality of food , service and choice is always excellent whenever you visit, summer or winter. Word has obviously spread and quite rightly so - therefore we always try to book from the UK prior to arriving in Portugal to ensure we always get a table. We have visited with various groups of people and also as a couple and the service and food are always consistent.

We normally head to alvor most years and for one reason or another have never had the pleasure of dining here.This year we decided to give it a try and boy were we glad .Having known to book in advance we got friends of ours to do it while they were in alvor.From the time you enter till you leave you are looked after to a very high standard which translates to the great food.For a party of seven including some starters all mains /wine /beer/soft drinks/2 dessserts.Bill was 140e.Well worth it.Also kids can have most things off adults menu as a kids portion.
