Nice spot to relax

Good for drinks in a group or a more laid back date. Small and can get busy but so do most decent places in El Nido. Make a reservation if you can. Went a couple times during my time there. Service was good, atmosphere is cool, and if you can get a water view really nice place to hang out... read more

After a long day of being in the water, we went here after our dive. The dive centre which we dove is just downstairs and we had a nice chat with our friendly DM on this restaurant. The view during sunset is excellent with a nice Shisha on top of the table. Staffs are friendly and always smiling. Try their... More

We went here for their Shisha, and also ordered the butterflied (buttered?) shrimp (it was good but expensive considering there were only 4-5 pieces). Service was fast and the White russian flavoured shisha we had was good. The best part is the beautiful sea view and watching people go by from the 2nd floor terrace. We visited at around 5pm,...

Lovely spot for sundowners. We had dinner here and it was very tasty. The service is a bit slow, but the chilled vibe makes up for it. You won't want to move from this view anyhow.

Relaxed and nice bar with by the beach at the second floor. Specialy are the sishas, they typically have 3 or 4 different flavors.

Besides the great breakfast, the view is also nice. There's a variety of breakfast combinations. The New York and Belgian breakfast will satisfy your hunger :)
