I visited this place MAAANY times and ordered their tea pitcher for just 120 pesos. They have wifi all day (but better get a 3G sim card... they are cheap!) and amazing views of the bay. Food was not expensive at all, specially their noodles (good for 2 pax).

This is a must visit place in El Nido, on the beach front, friendly staff. Nice food, have a drink on the sand and enjoy live music in the evenings.

I do not know why the staff in our resort highly recommended this one to us. Food was tasteless and lighting in the beachfront seats was horrible. There were a lot of people when we visited and so we had no choice but to stay in the outside seats. It started drizzling when we were eating and I asked the... More

We spent a few days here with coffee, lunch, dinner or beers. All times have been great. They have some big noodle dishes you can share between two people and save you some cash. Their sizzling chicken dish was amazing. One of our favorite dishes in town. The view is great here and live music has been too. Also free... More

Ate dinner with my friends here. I ordered the crocodile sisig and stuffed squid. The squid was huge and the sisig was just yummy. Their fruit shakes are prepared with awesome garnish. Let their house band/performer serenade you with great classic songs while you're there :)

We ate here a couple of times during our stay in El Nido. The food and drinks were reasonably priced and service was quite good compared to some of the other places we ate. I would recommend the fried squid, fish and chips and garlic mushrooms although all of the other dishes we tried were pretty tasty as well. If... More

We loved our dinner at Sea Slugs! It's a small place (the service was sloowwwwww, but where else did we have to be!?). The band was great and the food was wonderful. Having dinner literally on the beach, with the jillions of stars overhead and our toes in the sand beneath our table was wonderful. Although the service was extraordinarily... More

When in El Nido, don't forget to visit Sea Slugs. Definitely worth it! It's right in the heart of town, within walking distance from all the beachfront resorts.

We spent a couple nights here during our stay. The food was decent, the drinks very good. The service varied. Sometimes it would just be so busy that service dropped, but that seems typical of any place. They have a great cover band that plays in to the night!

Food was decent, view was excellent, and it made for an enjoyable romantic dinner. It was a little expensive for what was offered, but that's El Nido for you. If you want good value, hit up the local places which offer tasty eats for a much better price (but a much less impressive atmosphere).
