I really liked this place. The others in my party... meh. Not so much. I loved the Healthy Bowl (forgot its name) and the smoothie. Very refreshing and a soothing way to cool off from this heat. I recommend.

We visited Shaka in Bohol and I ordered the same dish - the one with chickpeas. In Bohol dish had more flavour compared to Shaka El Nido. However, my husband had burger and his was really good. Juices were also nice.

So grateful we were staying on Lio beach and found Shaka. Beautiful and delicious smoothie bowls, loved the sloppy Jose burger, and the tacos. The staff are amazing.

A must visit! This should be a must for anyone that wants to try something tasty, healthy, new and delicious. The fries/chips are the best that you can find on the island - proper hand cut potato fries with the most delicious’ketchup’ salsa. Burgers are...lovely, they aren’t dry, have good tasting cheese and well cooked. View is amazing and is one of the nicer views of the beach. There are some lovely little swings outside. Staff are friendly and polite and helpful. Always popular, especially for breakfast shakes and granola bowls.More

The burgers are not to recommend - the waka waka burger was dry and the sun dried tomato mix was sweet. The bowls are ok - more like smoothies than bowls.

I went to El Nido during peak season and I am not expecting to find a good place/service in any restaurant there. But I was wrong. I stayed in Seda Lio so I tried to look for a place near me. Lucky Shaka is just...near and their services, especially their food, are great! I ordered one of their Shaka Burgers and it was amazing! They also have this 'healthy alternative' foods that you can eat if you're on a diet. There are many varieties of food to choose from and you I guaranteed you will be satisfied whichever you chose. I highly recommend this restaurant not only for their food but their services also. Aside from satisfying food, I also had a good experience with their services alone - during peak season!More

Peak season and half the menu is unavailable with staff that are helpless and extremely poorly trained not being able to understand the difference between a soft/hard shell Taco. Tables are not cleared so the neighbors left overs are sitting in the sun.

I've visited the moalboal, bohol and siargao Shaka and was left bemused by the lack of consistency with the lio beach branch. The burgers presented were tasteless. The fries were greasy, the smoothie bowl was a mousse consistency. No value for money. Staff were slow....For the price you pay I wouldn't recommend to anyone. The only thing good about lio beach shaka was the location.More

I love Shaka and have frequented their other branches in the Philippians, however the service at the branch in El Nido was shocking. Food was great though.

Highly recommend a visit to Lio beach & Shaka! We visited twice and the food was fantastic as were the friendly staff! Definitely reccomend the flu fighter juice, the nachos & the wak wak burger! We’re not usually veggie / vegan but super yummy all...round!More

Dining at Shaka several times during my stay in El Nido was definitely a highlight for my time on the island. Being a matcha lover, I was deeply craving a tea during my trip to the Philippines and Shaka had it all! They have the...healthiest menu options for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a fantastic selection of smoothies and teas. Located in the trendy area of Lio beach, you can enjoy a healthy meal while watching the calm sea side. Staying just down the beach at Sea Lio, I ate here several times during my stay in El Nido and enjoyed the smoothie bowls, matcha pancakes, vegan burgers, tacos and the delicious pad Thai. I highly recommend visiting when in El Nido or their other locations in Thailand. It was nice to be able to eat healthy options at a fair price.More
