Large servings

Tasty meals and affordable price! Large servings and friendly staff. You can take seats on the beach front. Pizzas are so good. Although we waited for about 30minutes for our orders to be served but it's fresh from the oven.

Food: Food preparation took 15-20 minutes. We ordered Sinigang na Isda (Tuna) for 350php and Buttered Shrimp for 180 plus 3 cups of plain rice for 50php for a total of 680php. Divide that by 3 people so that's roughly 230php/person. Not bad. Not too mention the food is actually really good. We liked the Sinigang and Buttered Shrimp. We... More

The only restaurant we ate twice. My boyfriend and I love to travel but above all we both love to try restaurants or try the top "where to eat restaurants" in a particular place. The place is very relaxed, the staff were attentive to your needs and the foods were great.

I stayed in El Nido for two weeks and spent many hours in Artcafe. The good food, fantastic mango shake, and friendly staff made me come back time after time. It was also a great place to meet new people, and I made many new friends here. Well worth a visit!
