I had the Pumpkin Soup with bread, and found it quite disappointing. It was too watery and tasted like instant powdered soup. One of the cheapest items on the menu at 120 pesos but still not worth it.

Ate here twice, nothing extraordinary but service was good, prices reasonable, and portion sizes were good. This place, squidoo's, and the curry place are the picks of El Nido if you don't want too spend too many pesos.
