A good place to sit in the open air and enjoy drinks while listening to a live group playing and singing, friendly staff and take credit cards

When my wife and I entered at around 7:30, the staff were very welcoming, and they even encouraged us to choose from a variety of tables right by the beach. After getting our seats, we ordered our cocktails, which were ok but overpriced, and our...food which was very good but also quite expensive. There was a minimum charge of 500 per head which we easilly went over with 2 drinks and 2 dishes. Nonetheless, my wife and I had fun soaking up the atmosphere. As time went by, we noticed some people entering the establishment looking for a table, but deciding to leave even if the place was just 1/4 full because all the good tables by the beach (including ours) were occupied. Then we started noticing that the servers were trying to take out our dishes even if there was still food on it, which was quite annoying but something we simply dismissed as poor training. But when they started offering to take our glasses out when they were nearly empty, that's when our evening started to get ruined. After a while, I asked for our bill, paid in cash, and the change was promptly returned to me without an official receipt. Well, I asked the server to prepare one for me, because unlike the establishment, I happen to be an honest taxpayer. Now this is the part of my review that comes in hindisight after that experience. First, when they took our glasses away, they never asked us if we wanted to order another round. That simply means they wanted us to leave so that our table would become available for other patrons who wanted a table by the beach. Second, there were other patrons whose beer cans were surely empty, but they were not being pressured to leave. Hence, giving us the impression that them wanting us out of the establishment was not just a matter of generating more revenue. One fact I haven't mentioned is that my wife and I were the only Filipino customers that evening. In fact, we were the only Asians there. Doesn't that seem like they wanted us out because they preferred to have a western clientelle? My wife and I have lived overseas and travelled all over the world for over 30 years, and we have been to similar establishments on numerous occassions. We have never felt more discriminated upon until last night, right here in our own country .More

Heard about this place that it was poppin and it did not disappoint. The owner of the bar Sarah luckily was there the same night and made us feel like family! We could tell that she gives her staff the best amount of work and...play balance and they have tons of opportunities to enjoy themselves while on the job. Perfect.More

Lovely beach bar with amazing service. Happy hour is always good. The pina coladas we’re delicious. Beach and road entrance. The bar had a great singer the evening we were there watching the sunset.

Beautiful interiors but we feel cheated with the drinks - barely tasted the alcohol in the cocktails we ordered. Like the jack and coke- we had this in double shots and “premium” alcohol but tasted more the soda more than anything else. If you are...up for some music played from a YouTube playlist and some average drinks, this is the place for you.More

Right on the waterfront with great views. We stopped for happy hour and grabbed a couple of snacks as well. Good drinks and staff, loved the ceviche but the calamari was not tempura battered, it was thick and way to much. The views though...

Very trendy and modern looking. Food was very good, great vibe to the place HOWEVER please check your bill ours had 10 bottles of San Miguel light between the two of us when we only had 3 each, being Publicans for the last 36 years,...we wouldn’t loose count till about 30. Innocent mistake may be. Great position with 2 for 1 cocktails between 4&6 pm and they are very good, wonderful view over the bay. Downside No wifi for customer use and considering the cctv they have covering the bar, perhaps they need to rethink the value of the customer.More

One of the smarter bars in the area. On the beachfront, nicely decorated and furnished. Nice relaxed atmosphere and vibe with sand underfoot. Great views over the bay. Decent music and not too loud so able to talk comfortably. Happy hour - 2 for 1...offer brings the cocktails down to a reasonable price. Whilst the staff are very pleasant and friendly- they really could do with some training. Ordering is very sporadic. Sometimes your order turns up , sometimes it doesn’t. We’ve visited 3 times this week, the service on each occasion hasn’t been great. However, they do try and they’re very nice. Major negative factor is no Wi-Fi which is quite amazing for such a modern looking place. Even the cheaper dives have Wi-Fi.More

Nice bar right on the beach, has a lovely feel and does really good cocktails, not as cheap as other places but you get what you pay for. They do have a happy hour between 4-6pm but make sure you order off the Happy Hour...Menu. Staff were nice but got a bit frosty when we explained that we hadn’t been given the Happy Hour Menu. We didn’t eat here but the food that fellow dinners had around us looked good.More

We both ordered the largest and most expensive meal on the menu, which was a P825 hamburger. The waitress assured us it would be big enough for two people to share. However, we ordered one each. We both left still hungry. The hamburger was just...an ordinary size hamburger. After receiving the food we asked the waiter for a knife and fork, to whichever he replied: "I am sorry sir, the kitchen is closed. We don't have a knife and fork." Completely surprised we asked a different waiter what time the kitchen closes. "We don't have a kitchen sir". Right now we still wonder where our hamburgers came from. Overall this restaurant was a very expensive and unsatisfactory experience.More

Too overpriced. Gets full and not so comfy. I am happy to pay for good drink but the music of the bar was overshadowed by music from next doors.

Hi Ezgi! The beach in front of SAVA in El Nido town is where the boats dock for day tours so it’s not good for swimming. The view is gorgeous for sunset cocktails and dancing after hours though!
