Our favorite place for dinner was The Ruf Resto on the rooftop of Ferra Hotel.

The ambiance is perfect, and if you actually visit at the right moment, you’re actually eating with the amazing views of the sunset. There is a daily theme for music, and you can enjoy dining in tables or couches, whatever you’re feeling on that day. The food was exquisite, Asian fusion, so we were actually able to enjoy Chicken Satay, Pork, Nasi Goreng with the rest of the local choices.
