One of the best restaurant/ cafes in El Nido. Well attended by tourists throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is good and reasonably priced. Staff are pleasant and attentive. A good place to chill out while waiting for the weather to clear or a boat tour. Visited many times during our stay in El Nido.

The best cheese icecream! Pretty good food and drinks as well. Can arrange tours upstairs and a really great souvenir and gift shop downstairs. We have visited here for the past three years since 2014 and will keep coming.
