Nice live music at nigbt

I enjoyed coming here at night to enjoy a few drinks at the bar while listening to live music. My husband and I only tried the Hawaiian pizza, and it was delicious!

i am writing this review between waves of sweating and vomiting. Had the vegetarian pizza on April 16 2015. Started feeling uneasy in the stomach as soon as I left. Dizziness followed. I know I got food poisoning here as I can slowly feel the soreness moving from my stomach to my intestines, and it is all I've eaten the... More

It also looked like a traveler's choice in El Nido. A lot of people, mostly foreigners, dine here. Food selection is wide and good too. There's live music every night so it has fun ambiance to it. End your meal with their desserts especially their home made ice cream. Really good!

Great food - a little pricey but usually worth it. One of those places that has quite a western feeling... a tourist favourite place full of comfort food and guilty pleasure that you find while you're travelling where you are guaranteed a tasty meal and good atmosphere.

Artcafe helped us book our scuba diving. They were very helpful. Cute little store with lots of goods and restaurant/bar upstairs. Didn't get a chance to check out the live music but it looked like a nice space!

One of the best dining destinations in El Nido town. The variety and menu provides what is not readily available elsewhere in town. Entertainment is also available on the evenings. Do try their homemade ice cream.
