Came in for lunch, greeted with smiles. A very chilled out place, good atmosphere and perfectly decorated, where you can enjoy some scenery of the island. Service was quick, and the food was very good. DO try the pizza it is amazing!!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Indian food here. My burger ciabatta bun was a bit soft (I typically prefer a sesame bun) but overall good. The prices were a bit higher but we attributed this to the panoramic view - especially gorgeous at sunset! - and relatively discreet location of this restaurant.

Crafty's is an institution for residents living on Boracay. Always a great place to meet others the bar is friendly and lively. English Steve has taken the reins from Aussie Steve and it's even better. The kitchen has been upgraded and is famous for its Indian and other food. Great value.

Quaint. Awesome Spanish Omlettes. Owner was very friendly. Fresh variety of breads baked in-house :) Health-conscious (coconut oil for sale, coconut flour for sale, etc.) Price is very good (250ish PHP for breakfast entree and tea/coffee) Definitely a great place and will recommend to others!

This place does not look like much. It is a casual looking rooftop bar you can enter via a supermarket. I bet the view is great but I was there after sunset. But don't let that out you off - the Indian food is the best I've eaten. The cocktails are cheap too. Listen to me: just go.

Heard some hype about this place and decided to check it out for some Aussie/ British company. Unfortunately the few people present seemed to be expats engaged in their own banter or sex tourists. Ordered a creamy cocktail, but had to wait a while while they went out to buy the ingredients. The imported beers however were very reasonably priced.... More

A very relaxed locals hangout with a great view of the island. Entrance fee is the many steps to the pub which keeps it hidden & quiet despite being in D'Mall. Enjoy a pint, some Indian food, great service & possibly gain some local knowledge while visiting Boracay.

We are vegetarians and the food was just so terrible, very spicy & oily even after particularly requested to reduce spiciness and oil.... More

I sought out Crafty's based on the earlier reviews and the hopes I may find other Aussies there. Unfortunately my timing must of been out as there was just 3 other tourists there who were too engaged in each others company for me to interrupt. I ordered a piña colada however and an Aussie burger. The burger was devine and... More
