The chicken burger and spring rolls were unreal! Our group went here when the town was flooded, it was great as it was on the roof top, where it overlooks the ocean- so beautiful! The staff were friendly, and I definitely enjoyed my food! Thanks...More

Really disappointed. Shisha was so bad and the food that we had was also very bad. Its funny cause they recommended their chicken kebab as really good one. Place to avoid.

The food came out quickly and lived up to our expectations based on the price and other reviews. Nice view of the ocean here!

Very poor service. The girls just stood around and never came over. We had to call them over to order every time. The food wasn’t bad. The view was the best bit. Wouldn’t go back.

Drinks are hard to come by early in El Nido. So if you're looking for a morning cocktail I recommend you go upstairs to Habibi where you can find service. They're super friendly and open early hours.
