Description: The Ruf Restobar, located just a few minutes walk from the back and front beach at the rooftop of Ferra Hotel Boracay, is a getaway from the noisy and busy atmosphere of the main road and beach front. It's chill, relaxing yet classy ambiance provides a cozy dinner venue not only for couples but also for family and friends who want to have a wonderful dinner out. Our wide variety of Asian fusion choices and extensive drinks offering will surely provide a satisfying and gastronomic escape. A n amazing view of the sunset and the stars is also visible right at the rooftop restobar providing a visible and colorful view of the horizons-definitely a must-try in Boracay.

“Perfect Place to Dine Out and Chill Out in Boracay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2016

Ruf Resto Bar is a great place to have dinner and chill out when in Boracay. It is located at the rooftop of Ferra Hotel, where we stayed. I found the place cozy and very relaxing. Just a perfect place to cap off the night. They have a great selection of Asian food and other cuisines. We were able to try their Truffle Mushroom Soup, Sate Sample, Butter Poached Salmon, Grilled Back Ribs, Pork Binagoongan and Calamares. Everything was great but calamares and the sate sample were my most favourite. We were also able to sample their delectable desserts. We were so full and satisfied.

Aside from the sumptuous and delicious food that they served, what I’ve found pleasant about Ruf Resto Bar was the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. We really had a great dining experience at the restaurant bar. It is indeed a fantastic dining spot that offers great food choices for everyone.

“Delectable Selections”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2016


Highly recommended bar and restaurant to visit in Boracay. Apart from their excellent service and accommodating staff, they have one of the best dishes and cuisines I have tried in the island.
Here are some of my recommendations that one should not miss: Calamares, Truffle Mushroom Soup, Sate Sampler, Butter Poached Salmon, and Grilled Back Ribs.
Their perfect roof-top location, architecture and vibe is perfect for barkada/family/intimate dinners. Plus they got a wide selection of cocktails to match their delectable food selection.

“nice place to chill!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2016 via mobile

Visited the RUF with my BFF, who's in the Island for a short visit. Went to the RUF, for it was recommended by some friends. nice chill / relaxing place, compared to the very crowded and noisy white beach. staffs re very friendly and helpful - always smiling, even if there's only a few of them.Also, they can improve their playlist - more on chill and not too up-beat, and not too loud- volume must be regulated/minimal, so we can enjoy our conversation (hear each other. overall,It was a very good experience for us! We will be back!!

“Greatest meal and service in Boracay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2016 via mobile

This place comes with a local menu which also includes western style food variety. The view is great overlooking the surrounding and the srvice was excellent. We had the greatest meal there. Ordered the best soup and also was provided the best service. It is a windy place and a place you must visit.

“Great service, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2016

Had dinner in this nice roof top restaurant on Bulabog side of the island. The restaurant is located at top floor of the Ferra hotel.
Service was excellent, and the food was very tasty and reasonably priced. Went back also for sunset drinks one evening, and the level of service was again excellent.
