I had to try this place because of the good recommendation I've read. This is one of the places I feel comfortable eating alone because most of the restaurants I see serve couples.

The first time I visited this cafe was in the days when most of the island was without power for most of the day, so dropped in for some free wifi. I have been back since though, as enjoyed it so much. The food and drinks are good - not too expensive for a 'European style' eatery in Philippines. The... More

We are here because of previous peoples recommendations. Had fish fillet sandwich and El Nido salad. Both were excellent. Service was great - food arrived quickly.

The staff's are really nice and friendly. The place is really clean. The owner will even talk to you and discuss all about el nido. The music is also great. I just wish they would add more seats because these place is too crowded during peak season.

A LOT of mosquitos. Didnt enjoy the food entirely because of them. Food is on the average. Maybe on the nicer bunch compared to the other restaurants in el nido. Service is a bit slow so be a bit patient.

Food is nice as we try their pizza, paella and salad. It taste good and served fresh. The place is packed on a Tuesday night. I love the pizza. For me the price is a bit stiff but for foreigners its affordable. Their waitresses are warm, attentive and friendly A must try when in El Nido.
