“good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Nice place. Real good food and good value for money. I recommend to go early. We arrived just before 6pm and a few minutes after the place is full. I recommend the shrimp Thai style - warning its hot but lovely.

“Last dinner in El Nido”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

It has imposing entrance of giant bamboo chimes with very relax ambiance and has as well great view of the silhouettes of the setting sun. Great grilled sea foods of generous servings! This side of the beach should be preserved by prohibiting the exit of water drainage towards the coastline. It's not sanitary.

“Fairly average beach place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

The food was OK, we had fish which was fresh as everything is bought same day as no electric during the day. It is right on the beach so the waves come up tp the wall at high tide. The service was not that good, I felt this place was more of a bar than restaurant.
We did have breakfast there and the pancake was pretty good but coffee is instant. I did not find any decent places to eat in El Nido and there were all fairly expensive for what you got. The place next door El Nido Corner is probably a better bet for a sit down meal but not by much and their shakes are a right rip-off.
