Mango float dessert was perfect, but dinner not so good. View is also not so good. Recommend for dessert :)

Thanks for the review and for loving our Mango float. Once the neighbours finished their renovations, the view will improve as well.

This is a great place if you want more European/western style food. The breakfast is by far the best food that I've had while travelling in the Philippines (especially omelettes). Pizza is also good.

The service and the meals are great. Used to enjoy my breakfast on the terrace overlooking the busy street of downtown El Nido. Will return there this year for another week and already am looking forward to it.

It's on the waterfront in downtown El Nido, which is a small town. Everywhere is close to it, at worst it would be a 50c trip in a tricycle.
