Art Café offers a really really good choice of food and specially brakefast. While in your hotel brakefast is small you find in Art Café the right choice. Stuff is very friendly, specially Raymund. He treated us very well as guests.

A lovely restaurant with live music in the evening. I went there a couple of times for lunch and dinner during my stay in El Nido. The balcony offers a great view. The staff is super helpful and the choice in food and drinks is...excellent. I enjoyed everything I ordered. It was fresh and of great quality. A place not to miss when in El Nido.More

We just dined here in Art Cafe restaurant. So I would like to start by the place. It is actually good and quite spacious, but the lights are dimmed. A bit crowded due to peak hours and the service was a bit slow. The food...serving and serving size are okay. The only problem (minor prob) was the pork schnitzel. Its taste was good but the meat and fries was not good. The kinilaw na tangigue, mackerel sashimi, el nido salad, hungarian sausages, grilled fish with mango, and baked back ribs, Everything was good except for a minor concern about vienna schnitzel.More

It was crowded when we ent there last Sunday so we tried again last Monday for dinner, but being there earlier. I so love the art cafe pizza, their best seller pizza.. it is a must to have. We also complimented it with the penne...chicken pasta. Love the local ambiance of the restaurant at the 2nd floor which is also overlooking the El Nido Beach. There's a waiting area in front if it gets crowded. The shops are in the second floor.More

Place feels a bit overhyped.. have seen it in several vlogs and blogs and decided to try it out, place looks nice and fun, but the food was bad, did not taste good at all. (sea paella and pasta carbonara), serving did not take long...and drinks were okay.More

Ate there everyday for a week while we were in El Nido. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The owner, Judy , takes great pride in serving farm fresh eggs from her own hens and freshly baked breads and...desserts! The banana pancake was probably the biggest and best I've had!More

This is one of the best restaurants in el nido hands down. Not only is the food deliciously prepared but it is also all grown on their own organic farm an hour from the restaurant.. hard to beat that. Atmosphere is wonderful and staff is...very helpful. Art cafe is a must while visiting el nido.More
