Great fresh seafood

We visited this restaurant because it is highly recommended by our tour guide during our island tour. We arrived there around 630PM and the place is jam packed. When we entered there were no available seats since we didn't have any reservations good thing we found the family that was with us on the way to El Nido so we... More

Nice location and the food is good.. But the service is like a slug.. So slow and not friendly.. Looks like they don't care if it's full or empty.. Such a shame!

I could say the food selection is great & tastes good for a cheaper price compared to others. Music is cool too! The tables though are just not neatly arranged & cleansed, very few staffs to accommodate your needs, and dogs are all over the area (expect in all of el nido shoreline bars & resto). The service must be... More
