Nice place to stay for a drink

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. Shisha is... More

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

The place is clean, quiet and has a nice view of the bay. The prices are ok, and the service is adequate. I was quite happy since this is the only place that had Shisha!

A great place to enjoy a cool drink and tasty food watching the sunset over El nido beach, or enjoy a lovely breakfast with great coffee. Lots of choice from traditional to western style. Mel and Shane will be on hand to help with anything you need to ask and Miko is the guy to mix you a long cool... More

Walked here thinking there would be middle eastern food on the menu, unfortunately was just American (pastas and burgers). My boyfriend and I both ordered pasta, the seafood and a bolognese. Both tasted like they were out of a can, and made for an overall disappointing meal. Definitely would not go back for the food, maybe for the shisha.

Food here is great ! Had to return for the second time. Had the prawns in garlic and chicken curry. Both delicious and portions are abundant. Well worth it!
