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.

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 :)

We found it difficult to find a nice spot for breakfast in el nido (most of the places didnt have nice bread) but after searching for 4 day we stumbled upon habibi after going diving. their breakfasts were delicious and filling as well as being very cheap (150-180 pesos). It was a lovely place to sit and watch the boats... More

Much too my surprise there was an TripAdvisor award on the wall in this restaurant. The menu is very simple and not much on it. The food is poor and just thrown together. If it wouldn't be for tourist I doubt this place would work. On the other hand as an bar it's a nice place with beautiful view from... More
