Crafts Rooftop Restaurant, is a famous Boracay restaurant, boasting the best Indian food on the island. As well as it's excellent authentic Indian food, it also has an excellent international menu including steaks and ribs. With its Rooftop views of either side, looking over white beach and watching the Kiters over on Bulabog, it's a great sunset viewpoint. Couple those with the sea breeze and great music, its a great place to be, eat, drink and socialize. The coldest iced beers and ranges of popular imported brands, makes this a great place to enjoy your favorite drink.

I read a few reviews and thought I'd try this place for curry. If I could give it zero stars I would. Honestly, this was dismal, for 400 pesos you get maybe 3 small pieces of overcooked chicken soaking in a horrible salty curry sauce that didn't resemble any butter chicken I've ever had. I think it's the worst curry... More

We apologize that you suffered such a dissatisfaction. It appears there were two issues, the curry flavor and the price. The flavor can be preferential or perhaps rare and unlikely, it really was a miss, for which we offer an apology. As for price, we certainly are not expensive on Boracay, unless you are referring to back packer restos, of... More

We reached the Crafts grocery store, and had to ask the guards the way to the roof top. Well, the stairs to reach the roof top was worth it. We were here for a late lunch. And the lamb biryani and samosas were great. The mojito was nice.

Firsts time we visited this place was in April 2013 and at that time we NOT happy about the food. It changed! Steve, the owner, did it.

Hi, Thank you for your great review, very nicely said. Yes, there have been many changes over time and Crafts Rooftop has moved more towards being more restaurant focus. So the expat bar is a little less obvious nowadays, but still the great music, ice cold, beers, good views and great food. Hope to see you back here again soon,... More

My partner and I decided to visit Crafty's after reading some good reviews about their Indian menu. The menu was extensive with a good variety so we decided to have a feast. We had Onion Bahjis and Lamb Colcha as appetisers and they were delicious, especially the Colcha which we had never tried before. The portions were large enough that... More

Greetings from boracay, a place where really good food is sometimes sparse. Crafty's roof top bar has solid Indian food. I have now eaten there three times, a figure that will most certainly grow as we still have almost two weeks left here. My first visit wasn't that special.

Crafty's became our ' local' while we were in Boracay, not only for the great food but also the atmosphere and company. The Indian is delicious, really tasty and spicy and plenty of it.We very much enjoyed just sitting at the bar chatting to the wonderful barman Norman, other tourists and expats. Norman is an absolute asset to the place,... More
