Seafood pasta in rich creamy white sauce was tasty and generous portion with shrimp, squid, mussels. Much tastier than tomato base sauce. Grill pork steak with mango salsa with rice was tender and juicy. My fish in banana leaf with mango salsa was a bit dry with no sauce. Service was good with 24 hr free wifi. A bit expensive... More

nicest but not the most expensive. Here they have real food with really good quality. Service is exceptional. If you book with them they can also pick you up. Price is higher than in other restaurants but affordable.

I was in El Nido with friends and this is the only place to stay! It is clean, the lands are well cared for, and the staff is so friendly and kind. The restaurant was the only place we ate our meals because, it's just the best. Freshest and most delicious on the island for sure. We loved chatting with... More

We came to Cadlao after having been in very basic accommodations in Coron for 3 nights, then we had been on an expedition with Tao Philippines for 5 days. Our first night in El Nido, we crashed at a very basic but clean and nice place next door to the ArtCafe called "Aqua." But upon reflection, we decided that between... More

It's El Nido so I won't wax on about how fabulous that is - just by coming here, or planning to, you've made the right decision. What sets Cadlau resort apart for me is: Rooms are simple chalet-style. Good cotton sheets, good choice of pillows, nice little balcony. It's not flashy but it's done well, and little touches like proper... More

We went for dinner here both nights we stayed in El Nido and I guess the fact that we came back again speaks for itself.. the food was delicious! I can recommend the seafood curry to share and the mango daiquiri, so good!

They have a free tricycle service to & from the town so i never walked. Breakfast is inclusive of our stay and i never got tired of eating their breakfast which consist of several options... More

Ideal restaurant for couple outside from noise of el nido town just in front the beach. 15 minute walking or call the restaurant for free pick up from the end of the beach. Good atmosphere and food. A little more expensive that the other restaurant but for a good reason. Thei accept also credit card. Positive experience

The location of this restaurant was nice, but our experience eating there (3 times!) wasn't exactly great. The staff was very good! The food was also ok+. We recommend it because we didn't see many good alternatives around. Hopefully some chef reads this and make some competition! :-)
