Yes very expensive. The higher the floor you dine on the more expensive it goes.

Someone posted a few days ago that they paid for 2 people + bottle of rose wine & it was €90, you are only paying for the location. There are lots of places far cheaper.

In March I've paid 60€ for 2 without wine (we've chosen fresh fish - red mullet)

Yes, it is expensive, but I love it and make sure we go at least once on our yearly visit...never had sea bass like it before or ever since!! If you have a special event coming up then treat yourselves and hope you enjoy

Ruina's food is no better than many other restaurants. Where others will charge €40 p/kg for sea bass (robalo) or dourada (golden bream), they will think nothing of charging €60 - €80 p/kg, depending on what level you eat on. There is another excellent restaurant straight opposite, not cheap but nothing like this. Called Cabanas Fresca, it is the first restaurant opposite Fisherman's Beach.

Bld why Ruina is so highly rated I don't know, location comes to mind. I have had Golden Bream (My favourite fish) in lots of different restaurants around the city at a lot less than they charge and its been superb.I wouldn't even dream of stepping through the door at those inflated prices, once bitten twice shy comes to mind.
