Delicious smoothies right on the beach!

Loved hopping off our dive boat and going here for an amazing smoothies (fruit shake) served in cute jar glasses. It was beautiful swimming in the beach and coming back to our table on the sand to relax and drink yummy drinks! Winner

The food here was delicious. We had it every night. Try the crumble desserts and the lambanog (distilled coconut liquor). Wait staff is super friendly and helpful.

Amazing food and awesome service. We went twice during our stay in El Nido as it was so delicious. Great seafood and curries everything we had was high level. Also nice to see a wine selection. The homemade ginger ice cream was soooooo good!

The place is quite and you can have a nice walk from the town to the restaurant. They serve good food in good servings. The kids love their burgers, the chicken curry was the best!

This place really caters for travellers. Imaculate gardens and lawns. All very well maintained. The restaurant all wooden and looking out to a perfect view of cadlao Island and sunset. The meals here are perfect, a little more priced than in town however worth it.

We first went to this place because we lived nearby and it was raining cats and dogs. But the food was so delicious that we came back for one more dinner. Both were great, especially the fish dishes.

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.
