Trendy shisha bar with good food

My mom and I stopped in here upon a friend's recommendation. Had chicken wings, hummus, and drinks. Everything was great, but we had to order more naan to go with the hummus. (But the hummus was excellent!) It's a lovely (though cramped) spot, and the staff is nice. Very nice bathrooms, too, and... read more

It's a cozy place and we had our breakfast and sometimes dinner there as we enjoyed a view of the beach. The prices are very reasonable for what you get and the drinks were great. The service was good and they were helpful.

After eating dinner, our group of friends went here for a smoke. It's not very big, but we showed up late enough that seating wasn't a problem for us. They have a variety of flavors and some beverages if you're thirsty.

This restaurant is located just above the Submariner Diving center. It's convenient place to get a breakfast if you are heading for the dives. They also give you additional discount if you are diving with the dive center. Good shakes and drinks which we enjoyed after the diving day. Nice view to the main beach.

Lovely meal, service was a bit slow but the restaurant was absolutely packed out when we were there. Drinks were fast which made up for it. I had chicken curry which was delicious and the chicken wings entre was really good as well, worth the wait.

Visited a couple of times round New Year and loved the place. Food was good, drinks reasonable, the shishas flavoursome and the staff both attentive and fun. Good spot to while away the afternoon and evening, watching the sea lap at the shore and what I call 'busy quiet'. Enough people for an atmosphere and conversation, but quiet enough to... More

Food , service and view are great. Plenty of choices and also quickest than other places in El nido . Will definitely come back and I highly recommend it . Would have given 5 star if they had German dark rye bread. They even have nespresso, a real treat in the Philippines.
