Description: 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.

“Great Indian and a cracking bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had 5 dishes to share and all were delicious and authentic. The fish was a little dry but they had warned us they only had Tuna, and so our choice. Great atmosphere and very friendly. not a flashy restaurant like so many in Boracay.

“Cold beer with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Went here on the fourth day of our two week vacation in Boracay. After some poor food and over priced warm beer on the white beach area this place was a real change with ice cold beer at the right price without being bitten by sand flies. There is always a pleasant breeze, found that this is the place that most of the local Expats drink together with many locals. Found the food really good, The Indian dishes are really good and not over priced. We did not like the curries atTrue foods but here they are the real thing. All the staff are friendly. We will go to this restaurant next time we go to Boracay.

“Great Bar and restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This bar is worth climbing the stairs to get there. The beer is ice cold and the Indian food is certainly the best I have found in the Philippines. There is a vast menu, all the meals we had there were very good. The company in the bar are also fun, many expats and locals use this bar. You can find a wealth of local knowledge to enable you to save a lot of time finding the best places to visit whilst on Boracay. Of all the curries we had there the buttered chicken was our favourite together with the fresh cooked nan bread. Will make this our local next time we visit Boracay

“Great Curries, Views and Breezes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Crafty's is a great little hang out and often populated by local ex-pats, so you can guarantee lively conversations and most are happy to share tips on where and where not to visit on the island.

Crafty's serve some delicious curries, amongst other delights, and I'm addicted to their nan breads, particularly the stuffed ones.

There's usually a good range of bottled beers, lagers and bitter and the guys are happy to make fresh alcoholic shakes too .. so you can look like you're being healthy even when you're not.

Crafty's Bar is, as it says, on the rooftop of Crafts Supermarket (Green Building at the top entrance of D'Mall), whilst the stairs can be a bit of a killer, the views once you're up there are fabulous and you can almost always guarantee a lovely breeze
