We went a few times to eat there during our stay in Palawan and we weren't disappointed any time. The food was delicious and they're very efficient so that you don't have to wait long for the food.

We really enjoyed our dinner at El Nido Grill, because all the plates were extremely tasty, plus there was live music at the restaurant that night. I totally recommend this restaurant. My only suggestion is to enlarge a bit the shrimps portion. Prices were decent...enough.More

Al fresco dining, beachfront view, nice music, and great service. The food was great and serving portions was big. Value for money is definitely worth it.

Good was great, drinks slightly expensive. We didn’t like the Hulu Hulu desert, but that’s just our taste. We would recommend it as the grilled fish and squid were great.

We arrived in Lio Estate just in time for lunch. We checked in immediately at Casa Kalaw and went straight to El Nido Grill to join the rest of the group. Four were already in the middle of their lunch and the Crab and Shrimps...looked quite appetizing. We ordered the usual grilled delicacies of squid, shrimps and fish. In between we were exchanging stories and trying to get acquainted with the other guests. As can be expected all of us had a hearty appetite coming straight from Metro Manila and an hour of flight and 30 minutes of boat ride from the airport. The food was delicious and the resort ambiance made us more hungry. The restaurant had good service and the grilled delicacies came fresh from the sea.More

Lio brach branch of El Nido Grill the food is good and serving is very generous. while enjoying our crab and liempo over an iced cold beer, we weren't aware that it was nearly 10PM and suddendly the bill came to our table without even...informing us that they will be having their last call for orders OR if its okay to give and settle the bill.. we havent finished out food yet. when ask one of the servers if this is their policy, she answered without blink of an eye a "yes". we asked for their manager. he just unsincerely apologizes and told us to remind their staff in the future. thats it??? not going back.More

We went here for lunch on our first day and didn't expect much. Went out of the restaurant fully satisfied after finishing our orders of their specials. Went for dinner on our second night to validate if the food was really great or if it...was just a case of us being very hungry the first time. Went out of there even more satisfied than the first time. Definitely worth returning to!More

Went here with my GF and her mom (both Filipino) we have been traveling around PH for 3 weeks now and this is some of the best food we had. Tried a grill in Boracay before El nido grill is 100 times better! Also the...prices were fair. Great service, great food, great ambience!More

My wife and I have been to Lio beach twice this year. The first visit El Nido Grill was not open yet and man are we happy they were open the second. As far as my tastes go, this is the best option for eating...on Lio beach. The sinagang and BBQ Chicken/Pork were all great. The live music in the evening adds to a wonderful atomosphere. You do have to choose your seats wisely as there is a BBQ grill that puts off a lot of heat/smoke but other than that, I have no complaints. Service was typical/average but the food was great!More

Dishes where Squid and Shrimp, Squid quite good in size and taste, shrimps where algo good in taste but few in portion, the amount of smoke coming out of the kitchen was way to much plus the demotivated waiter made the experience quite average.

As we stay in one of the hotels in the resorts, I would say that El Nido Grill is one of my favorite places to eat. I love the grilled squid, pork and most specially they reserved a crab for me on our last night...in the resort. Big Hooray to Ate Magda for excellent customer service. Just thinking of the food I feel hungry. When in El Nido, come and dine in El Nido Grill!More

Been here with my wife and we directly decided to come back. The grilled seafood and also the grilled meet dishes are very delicious. Additionally we tried two side dishes which names I cannot spell. Both were fantastic. One more thing which makes this place...very special is the daily changing love music. We definitely can recommend this place.More
