Nice View while you dine

We visited the place for an early dinner and it was not crowded. The place was relaxing at the moment. Food was great and the service was just average. Recommendable for people who just want to relax during the day or before sunset.

I like their mango ginger shake. very refreshing and cool for a warm balmy day or simply as pick-me-up. we also tried their coconut - pandan shake. but we definitely preferred the mango ginger shake better

The view on the sea from the top floor is lovely. The staff was friendly. My friends and I ordered different dishes. I got a basic sandwich but it turned out to be quite wonderful with a nice cheese and good bread. I also tasted some of my friend's prawns curry. It was delicious.

Go here and order your dose of Pizza, shisha and seafood. Value for money and best taste in town. Also a good way to relax and enjoy the view of the Beach front of El Nido's capital.

Enjoyed their pizza and enjoying our drinks while comfortably sitting on their sofas. It's very homey restaurant. You're just like drinking your beer in your home :). But I don't like their fruit shakes. not quite good.

Nice place with good views and food to stop off and relax in the afternoon. Get a bit of discount from prices if you have booked a diving course beneath and you can ask for larger contents on the plate.

Me and Couple of my friends stopped in El Nido for around 5 days. 4 of the Nights we spent in Habibi. It was just a great place to kick back, order some of the best fresh fruit shake we had tasted in El Nido and mingle with different people everyday who were also enjoying the relaxed atmosphere.

We had dinner at Habibi. Unfortunately it was a bit quiet, but it's off season. The food tastes good. I had the chicken curry and my brother the mushroom pizza. After dinner we tried the chef specialty, Crêpes with rum and cinnamon (see photo). It's sooo good! We definitely recommend this. It's not too sweet. The day after we had... More

Got the prawn curry and the vegetable spring rolls. The spring rolls were fried but still tasty. The prawn curry was great. Curry was bold and savory and the prawns were well done. You also probably want to get an order of rice as well. We did peach Shisha also. It probably lasted us 45 minutes and probably could have... More
