“Visiting Family”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I was visiting family who live in pattaya and they took me to Ruffino Restaurant and Lounge for sunset cocktails which was just awesome the Mojito was one of the best I have had and trust me I like my Mojito, the sunset was amazing and snapped some beautiful pics! Dinner was to die for crispy tasty excellent quality fritto misto, tasty perfectly baked pizza's and the homemade pastas were just awesome! The staff were friendly and nothing seemed to much trouble, I hope my family stay there a while as I want to go back.......

“fab food and views”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We started off outside by the pool. This is lovely relaxed rooftop drinks area with the ocean theme continued with groovy blue lights dotted around which remind you of the jelly fish and sea theme elsewhere in the hotel. the resident dj was great, playing really relaxing ambient music which was lovely creating a very relaxed chilled atmosphere. Not too loud, just perfect. After a couple of good cocktails we moved inside for our meal. This a small restaurant with a great intimate feel to it. We ordered the sharing platter of antipasto for starters, this was excellent and very generous portions, the Parma ham and Parmesan chunks were particularly good. We ordered the ruffino chianti, which was very good. My husband had the ribeye and I had the tuna, very good too. The accompanying sides were good as well. Then on to the desserts which were a revelation! Absolutely lovely, we had divine melting chocolate pudding and panacotta with fruit coulis we ended up sharing as both were heavenly. We finished with coffee, good and strong, not too bitter, nice and hot with a fab dark chocolate, super. We will definitely be back as locals. The service was excellent, well done Amy and her team!

“Really Good”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Arriving at this restaurant was great in the glass elevator and emerging on the roof top, we had a round of drinks including an ice cold beer and a mojito at the lounge next to the pool then watched the sun go down which really never gets old where ever you go. We dined inside with beautiful views of Jellyfish, the open kitchen and the well stocked wine cellar, started with a tortelli and carpaccio with truffle which were honestly perfect the tortelli was al dente with a beautiful flavour, followed by an ossobuco and a lamb cutlets, I can still taste the ossobuco, sublime, we had a bottle of Ruffino Chianti and was explained by the attentive staff that the restaurant is affiliated with the vineyard and finished off with the cheese platter. We will remember this meal for all the right reasons for a very long time to come, and will definately go back should we be in Pattaya again.
