Read an article in the plane regarding this place. We weren’t disappointed! Local modern Filipino food done extremely well at a reasonable price! No matter fully you get, make sure you try the desserts!

By far the best and easiest meal in El Nido. My girlfriend had the grilled fish which was tasty and fresh while I had the Chicken Insal and pancit buko. Good relaxed atmosphere with lots of locals.

Highly recommended by the locals for the best Filipino cuisine. I was left underwhelmed and disappointed to be fair. I love international cuisine and it didn’t ring many bells for me or my husband for an anniversary meal. I wouldn’t come back and considering the...More

Tamboks is a bit out of town, not near many resorts and up some hills. But it’s where all the locals go for Filipino food, and we found a trike ride easily after our dinner so don’t be alarmed by the lack of traffic. The...More
