The lights are always on at Artcafe - Good pizza, good fish, good smoothies, good banana cake, but a touch pricey though...

Dining in El Nido is usually spectacular thanks to it's location. The food is very good only in 2 or 3 places. Artcafe is one of the best places to eat in (food and service), although it doesn't really have a scenic view.

Inside the restaurant there is an office where you can schedule some trips. We tried some of them and they were very professional. And the food on the trips was probably the best in town. So we definetely recommend them!

Loved the milkshakes here, especially the coconut milkshakes. The pizza is also very delicious! Not the cheapest in El Nido but you are paying for quality. Wifi needs to be fixed though.

Restaurant, bar, and also they do arrange different activities such as island hoping. We also booked our mini van ride to Puerto Princesa from Artcafe. Also they have computers and telephones for rent.

This is the most crowded place in town, a lot of backpackers and tourists go here. Quit pricy for El Nido but still worth it.

Had almost all our meals here during the days in El Nido. Was never dissatisfied but also never applaud the chef or bartender. They do make quite strong drinks which can be annoying sometimes.

Nice atmosphere.

Try the mango tango drink and pasto pesto!
