Lovely meal. Definitely either book ahead of your trip or book at the very start of your holiday. The view from the terrace was lovey, the menu had plenty of options to choose from, it was child friendly and the staff were very friendly and attentive at first but this did tail off towards the end of the meal hence the loss of a star when drinks were forgotten and coffee took forever. As the main waiter and his sister also a waitress both got too involved in a long, loud, heated and unprofessional sounding conversation with another table. But if it wasn't for this then I would have given this 5 stars.

We ate here on Friday night with friends who live in the village (booked last month). Staff friendly without being intrusive, we were welcomed like friends and enjoyed, from beginning to end, a wonderful eating experience. Although the restaurant was full, there were no delays in our service and no rush to leave. Excellent customer service and a superb menu.

This place is the bees knees. Have had numerous meals here over the last few years and couldn't rate it highly enough. You need to book weeks in advance , but you will not be disappointed . First class food , service and really lovely staff . Great value for money .

We visited this restaurant on two occasions on our recent stay to Alvor, we have also eaten there before. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you get a fantastic experience from all at Ruccula.
The waiting staff are helpful and very knowledgeable, they explain all your options available and will make any changes they can to accommodate you and your younger eaters.
The food quality and quantity is fantastic with everything cooked to perfection.
After a lovely evening with good friends and a good few drinks I declared this was in my view, the best restaurant in the world. On sober reflection, I am sure I my claim may have been a little exaggerated however I have eaten there quite a few times now and it always delivers a 10/10 experience

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!
