Some people we met felt the place was overpriced. In our experience (we had a few meals her) the food very VERY fresh and the dishes were fairly sized (but they were not huge) and tasty. They have a rich menu with a large variety and also make good shakes (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) and the coffee was great - a... More

Had breakfast here and also did a little shopping at the Art cafe. It is the main hub of El Nido I believe as you can book and organise pretty much everything here, plus have great food upstairs! Keep up the good work!

With good variety of food but a little bit pricy. Nice ambiance The cigarette smoke at the veranda is flowing to the non-smoking area. The senior citizens card of balikbayans were not honored.

I had a totally undercooked fish fillet (no indication of what fish is used) with ice cold mango salsa put over it: just awful! After my complaint I was given a 30% discount on the fish.

My girlfriend and I came here for dinner on a Saturday night. The live music was loud and popular with the many customers. We were lucky enough to get a table on the balcony, and we looked forward to a nice, romantic dinner. We ordered the bruschetta to start, and she ordered the pasta carbonara and I had the beef...

One of the safest places to eat in El Nido. Good food, good service, and most importantly, clean. With sickness bugs rife in El Nido town this if one of the best choices you'll find.

Nice venue upstairs, comfy and nice atmosphere for lunch. Sitting outside in balcony there is a small glimpse of the ocean only. Wicker chairs lot more comfy than wood. Lots of staff in attendance but on this occasion felt most were not that happy to be there. Not that happy looking, which is a surprise for Filipino. All looked very... More

Decent food overall, nice restaurant upstairs or you can choose to sit on the other side of the road right beside the water. The band inside was AWESOME when we were there. Good vibe. People say the wifi is great but it didn't work for any of my friends.

Thank Vanessa S
