“Go for the drinks, stay away from the food”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Look, if you think a nice view is more important than the fact that the food here is awful, please eat at this restaurant. If you actually enjoy eating and expect to have a nice meal, do not go to this restaraunt, it is awful!!!!
Went there in late December 2013. The mushroom cream soup not only came from the can, they actually watered it down. It was dreadful, like something they might serve in prison. I also ordered the Mexican Steak. The meat was tough, I'm afraid of where or how it stored prior to it being served. Again they served it with some tomatoes and onions that I guarantee you were straight from a can. A shame considering there is plenty of fresh vegetables to be had in this area. The drinks were reasonably priced, but don't let that lure you into staying for dinner. There are many seats with good view of the El Nido sound. But most restaurants in El Nido can make that claim, it's just this one that make you shake your head in regret after eating their offerings.

“Tha badest experience i never had in a restaurant”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

We came in this place on the advice of a local people, we were 8 persons having diner. Many choice on the menu but when we start to order, the waiter told us there was no burger and only one steak available on five ( the T-Bone steak 350g), the most expensive. So i order this one and three of my friends order pizza but 3 minutes later the waiter came back and told us there was only 2 pizza remaining, no many choice at the end !
The first plates were served, no problem i'm gonna wait 5 minutes (i asked for red steak, it should be quick). 5 persons finished their plates and i was still waiting mine.
2 persons ordered fried squids with rice, they had time to eat the whole plate of rice and still no squids. Finally my steak is served and the squids of my friends at the same time.
I could'nt even see my steak because it was under an half liter of mexican sauce !
The steak was supposed to be 350g but it was full of fat so i think i just had 5 or 6 forks of meat at the end so i was still hungry after dinner, a really bad dinner.

“Happy hour coktail trap”
Reviewed December 18, 2013 via mobile

I'm usually not falling for flashy commercial signs but i hot caught on this one.

We have been attracted by the happy hour offer of this place: "buy one coktail of the day get one free" with written on top of it P75. It appeared that the coktail of the day (a mix of pineapple and cranberry juice with little rhum) was in fact P160.
Curiously on that happy hour offer (clearly a tourist trap) all the prices are indicated (rhum mango P60, rhum pineapple P60, Bailey P75) except for the coktail.

When you leave they announce the price of the coktail is P160.
Clearly i would not recommend this place for its lack of honesty and clarity on flashy happy hour signs.

Make you sure you get the price right for what you order.

“Seriously go elsewhere”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We had food from this restaurant delivered to our hotel as our kids were so exhausted from spending the day not he water. WHilst I am so grateful that they delivered the food, it was so awful that I could barley eat it. My food was so cheesy it was like gloop. There are better options in El Nido.

“Average”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

Food not stellar but acceptable (servings are huge though).
Food a bit overpriced (even compared to other restaurants in El Nido).
Good service though.

Overall, nothing special. Most other restaurants in the area much better.
