The food is very good, great vibe, great music. The staff is above average, unlike so many places in Palawan. We ate here almost every day, for 10 days.

Happiness beach bar is a vibrant and colorful getaway from the craziness of El Nido. Ideal for healthy breakfasts or to sip some very expensive imported wine, happiness beach bar brings a cosmopolitan vibe in the fast paced urbanization of el nido.

Fresh pita bread, amazing hummus, excellent staff, great drinks...Food is fresh, clean, and worth every pesos they charge...You would be missing out if you didn't stop into their NEW LOCATION on the waterfront of El Nido...

After we eat a lot of squid and fried stuff, this restaurant was really good in terms of food and drinks. You really have to try the fries and the coconut dessert.
