the food was sumptuous and the price is just reasonable. you just have to give seats to others after your meal since a lot of people are queuing.

The location is a bit off from the Aplaya but the tricycle ride is worth it. Sea Slugs offers dinner buffet for just Php 300/person and you won't regret eating there. The selection on the buffet is very good (of course we didn't expect too much since it is just budget buffet) but the highlight of the restaurant is the... More

This place has a new name, but is still in the same spot. The waitress didn't know what some of the drinks were. They were also out of quite a bit of the food. The setting is nice. Just check to see if they have the food you'd like before you place drink etc. orders.

My BF and I went here for lunch on the very first day at El Nido, as a vegetarian my options were quite limited but my BF enjoyed the seafood they had served. My vegetarian pizza was average and although I have a pretty week stomach I had no problems. The service was not great but it was tolerable. Since... More

We loved the sizzling squid and the grilled shrimp. We looked around looking for seafood in El Nido. We imagined it to be swarming with seafoods. We found it hard, until we were directed to the seaside and we walked.the stretch and asked around. Seaslugs is now known as Seaside. Just accross the Squidos in the town proper there is... More

We have stayed at this place and the rooms are great. Clean and comfortable, it's nice quiet there so we sleep well. The service is outstanding. The restaurant is upstairs and the food is great as we know from them before. On Wednesday and Saturday they have buffet dinner really good. Thanks grace and Ray

I was looking for authentic bird's nest soup being in El Nido. They had it but I was disappointed. I've tasted better soup at Chinatown Manila. It was expensive at 450 pesos! Nothing we ordered tasted as good as the food they served on the boat tours.

We picked to eat here as its a nice spot by the beach. The food was disgusting and possibly the worst service I've ever had in my life. The staff were awful, completely ignored us, when she put my food on the table she didn't even look what she was doing and some of my food slid off the plate... More

I didn't like the food. To be fair though, the servings were big. The location is good as it is by the sea. You can eat while hearing the waves and your feet can feel the sand. They have a new name now. I forgot the new name. But in the sign it says - formerly known as Sea Slugs.... More
