Last August 22, we were able to celebrate at this hotel restaurant and all I can say is wow! We were so amazed by the quality of the food they served and the hospitality... that really mean so much to us. It was my parent'...s anniversary and I am beyond delighted that I was assisted and accommodated by Ms. Mariel with all my requests. Thank you Ms. MARIEL, KALOY and Team! Also a big shoutout to the Chef, Chef RAM which is from Baguio. My father was so happy he met another Ilocano in Boracay. We will surely go back and we will not miss to book again in this place. Thank you and surely, with those kind of people and service , God will bless this more. ❤More

Dined at Ferra's Ruf Restobar once again during this recent trip. They have now transfered the restobar from the original Ferra Premiere Hotel to the newer Ferra Hotel & Garden Suites. The dishes are still as good as I remembered them to be. Recommended dishes...are their nasi goreng (spicy!), calamares, and sisig. Yum!More

Ferra Hotel has always been the hotel of choice for my husband and I when we are in Boracay. This is our 4th time staying here and the first time for our 2-year-old son. We stayed for 8 nights this time. The food at The...Ruf Resto Bar is consistently excellent. I’ve dined here a number of times before (before it was located on Ferra Premier Hotel) and it still amazes me how they manage to maintain the level of customer service that they have. It always doesn’t seem that we are guests but family members and the staff always have ready smiles for everyone. We had a lovely dinner with some friends and we had; Nasi Goreng, Calamares, Pork Sisig, Lumpiang Shanghai, and Crispy Pata. Everything was yummy especially the Calamares and the Nasi Goreng (my favorite since my first stay). We ended the night with bottles of cold beer. It was a lovely night and a wonderful dining experience. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and Ferra Hotel and the food at The Ruf Resto Bar is consistently great.More

The Ruf completed our last day in Boracay. Due to a medical emergency, we had to adjust the time of our dinner, but the staff and the manager were very accommodating that not only they allowed us to reschedule but they also offered a van...to fetch us from our hotel, for free! They also brought us back after the dinner. Their ribs is the best ribs I’ve ever tasted! Great food overall! Not to mention the amazing efforts that they put in the arrangement of the room, it looks really romantic. The staff and the manager are amazing! The surprise was perfect. Will definitely go back here again. Highly recommended! 😊More

Over the top service... we came here for our 30 th anniversary and couldn’t have been more satisfied, surprised and filled with delicious food!! The staff were so friendly and helpful and because of our reservation , we were seated by the pool in a...special area. We enjoyed the baby back ribs and the green salad with grapes and candied walnuts... they surprised us with dessert and everyone sang a song and they brought us balloons!! Very special place and we’ll be back! Don’t miss it when in Boracay and the hotel also looks great!More

My wife and I were procrastinating writing this review for Feb 11th when we visited The Ruf for our evening meal. The good TA reviews got us there but it is Lyn's and her team of waiters/waitresses/bar staff that made us leave the place with...a big smile at the end of our evening meal. The entire staff clearly take pride in keeping up their high TA score. The atmosphere and food were simply the cherry on top of a great memorable evening in Boracay - probably one of the best experience in fact. It is clearly worth tracking down this place and stepping out of the restaurant beach strip.More

How to start. Searched in Trip Advisor where to have a good dinner as me and my partner will be celebrating our second anniversary. The Ruf Resto Bar is at the top of the list. And Boy did it deserve the best! Let me elaborate:...I reserved via messaging them in their FB page. They are very responsive, immediately reserving a seat and asking if we are celebrating. I told them we are having our 2nd anniversary and didn't think much about it. We reserved for 5.30pm as Sunset view us reputedly superb. Fast forward to March 2nd, we had quite a bit of time finding the place. It's relatively near the D-Mall but in one of the smaller unpaved side streets. The restau bar is located at the top floor of the Ferra Hotel, which looks like a nice boutique hotel. As soon as we disembarked at the rooftop, we saw they had prepared an elaborate table for two in red, with heart-shaped napkins! We were ushered in by their really helpful and cheerful staff and assisted by server Lyn. We had the Romantic Dinner which consisted of a five course meal starting off with the appetizer of salmon and spicy shrimp. Our second entree was caesar salad and grape walnut salad, followed by parmesan soup and tomato soup. The main entree was grilled chicken for me (which was huge and tasty!) And a large babyback ribs for my partner, with a side serving of mashed potatoes and a plate of spicy shrimp pasta (also extremely tasty)! This was all capped off by a leche flan dessert and mango puree ice cream that will be prepared beside you (talk about cool). The serving size are huge ( i was starting to get full when the soup was served) and particularly tasty. I especially love the shrimp with a spicy taste, and that is saying a lot since I am not a shrimp-lover. See pics for how it looked. The place itself, being the rooftop bar of a hotel, looks great. They have soft lighting installed creating a warm ambient glow, and their rooftop pool creates a dramatic backdrop against the setting sun. The chairs are comfortable and relaxing, and they have soft instrumental music of OPM playing in the background. But the best part of this restau is really the staff and servers and crew. They were very friendly and helpful on the get-go, assisting us on all our requests, and even creating a surprise for both of us! They helped take picture of us and even provided good lighting so we can have a great sunset shot in the dark! Afterwards, just before we had our dessert, they started serenading us! An OPM "Kahit Maputi na Ang Buhok Ko". We just love it! Thank you so much for making me and my partner feel very special! And for all the extra effort from our lovely table setting, to the superb food capped off by exemplary service from you guys! Talk about going the extra mile! We had the best night dining in our Boracay stay yet (and this is our 3rd time in tue island) because of your service. That caps off my long review. To sum it up, it is true what you read in Trip Advisor. They deserve number 1! The best dining experience in Boracay!! Thank you to everyone and we will definitely be back!More

I would like to commend all the staff in the Ruf resto bar at Ferra hotel for a job well done. I was looking for a restaurant who can cater to my every need and can help me organize three separate events even if I...live in another country. They were very helpful and also super easy to talk to that is why all the events we had with them was a success! What ever budget you have they can make it happen. Everyone was truly amazing from organizing the parties up to the real event. The staff was full of smiles and was ready to serve! They were truly accommodating and friendly making you feel you are part of a family. I also loved all the foods they served and many of the guest told me that the food was really good! To the whole staff of The Ruf resto bar, Ms. Jenni, Nilo, Alvin, Carloy, Babylyn, Cue, Joy and Jaya thank you very much for the wonderful service! Thank you for making our events possible and a memory for keeps.More
