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

We had a lovely experience last time we visited La Ruga, which was about 2 years ago. Unfortunately this time we were disappointed. The staff were fantastic and very welcoming. We felt the food was quite average; nothing was wrong enough to send the food back, but it didn't live up to expectations set by our last visit.
