Best sunset view in El Nido

Friendly staff, cheap wine, great food and a lovely view and then a free trike ride along the beach back to town - a superb quiet dinner for two in a lovely setting watching the sun go down

Food was great, and staff were very courteous. The view of the seashore from the dining area at night was just awesome. Also, brace yourself for an exciting tricycle ride through narrow passageways to get there.

In a quiet area, a 3-4 minute walk from the center of the town in a resort. The restaurant is on the water, which coupled with the quiet atmosphere makes for a great date place. Food was pretty good, and service very helpful.

Amazing fresh juices and delicious breakfasts and dinners. There is a lovely pool right next to the beach which we enjoyed. Lovely staff created a relaxed... More

Excellent food but a bit on the pricey side but well worth it and a refreshing experience from the beach restaurants. For a special evening it is a wonderful. We had 2 meals there and all was perfect, atmosphere, space, food, service. Wish I could have afforded to stay at the resort itself.
