Very nice meal, my seabream was delicious. Service good with a relaxed & pleasant atmosphere. No complaints but would be nice to have some refreshing sorbet on the desert menu

Very good, as always. Staff have changed since our last visit but still excellent service. The daily changing fresh menu remains a popular characteristic of this restaurant too.

La Ruga is my favourite local restaurant, my experience there is always good. The tables are well spaced out with lovely crisp white table cloths, an elegant and cosy restaurant. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday, the service was excellent with attentive staff. There was a candle on the dessert and allow diners sang happy birthday to my hubby.

starters for 2 people was a disappointment, 2 of us had escargot and had trouble finding the snails, granted this cost was removed from the bill which we was grateful for, the remainder of the food was amazing like the first time we came and will still come back again. The sea bass was amazing as was the plum crumble

Superb! Excellent dining room. Helpful and friendly waiter. Great food and a treat for all four of us. The location, too, is great being in a charming section of Orford Road.

I have been a patron of La Ruga for many years and the quality of the food, the ambience and friendliness of the staff all make dining there a most enjoyable experience.
