We had Shisha here and it was pretty good! We live in Abu Dhabi so we enjoy Shisha at home frequently. They told us they have there Shisha shipped from Dubai. Along with Shisha they also serve good food!

Been here just to have some coffee after an exhausting yet amazing day in our tour. A very small place that can be their negative side as i believe it is the only place serves shisha and might be busy at night. The hot chocolate doesnt taste what i expected. Although it was okey i ddnt finish it. But the... More

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

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.

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.
