It was a big mistake to dine in this restaurant, foods are way too expensive. Not worth it at all. We asked for their bestseller which was the Buttered Shrimp for Php320! 7-8 pcs of baby shrimps! salty, oily, nothing special!!! I ordered their Chicken Frontier with buttered Spaghetti and Vegetables for Php250 and I could not eat their uncooked... More

It´s a really fun cosy place to see the sunset over El Nido! Definetely worth to go for dinner after a long day of diving! Environment and people are great.

We ate breakfast here daily during our five days in El Nido. The breakfast is top notch. The jam, to me, tasted like captain crunch cereal; big fan. Never ate here otherwise, but the drinks and hookah are great. Great view. Nice interior.

Food is good, but nothing you will remember and want to try again. The people working there is super nice, but as fast (or as slow) as any other place in el nido. Is not the cheapest place, but prices are quite reasonable... Summarizing, is a nice place, perfect for hanging around after a diving day. My suggestion: try the... More

We had a good time with friends here in Habibi Resto. After dinner, we searched for a bar to chill and when we saw this place, we got curious about shisha and try it for ourselves. Beer is cold and music is great. :)

Nice place to hangout, it's located just by the beach, on top of our favorite dive centre (Submariner). Food is good and (maybe) the only shisha in town. The staff told us that it was started by a German & Filipino couple who met in Dubai :)

I love the food in this restaurant but not a fan of their service. Having dinner alone and almost asked to move table for twice. Food is amazingly good but slow.

One of my favorite restaurants we visited while in the Philippines. Amazing frappucinos and great food. I would've loved to try the shisha if I hadn't been running low on cash. The location is nice too, on the second floor with an open wall facing the beach.

It was a pretty nice, but small place. The ambiance was nice and I had a great time w/ my friends here! The shisha was pretty good! We ordered the strawberry-flavored one and we also got some caffeine fix! They have accommodating staff and it was such a chill place. :)

Part of the Submariner's diving centre operation with a very pleasant laid-back vibe. Nice staff and good, simple food. The last night we spent in El Nido we asked them to make a roast fish and it was really yummy, thank you!!
