Me and my husband came to try the so called "must try" when you are in El Nido. The place is so romantic it's just a little bit hot (maybe the table we get has no electric fan) the staffs are super friendly and the food is okay. Overall our experience didn't meet our expectations. Because the way they say... More

Very attractive restaurant with nice ambiance. Food is attractive and nicely presented but fairly tasteless and pricey. Staff is ok. Limited breach view. Foreign visitors made up the majority of the patrons during my visit.

This place was average, so I'm not sure why people love it so much. I'm saying this as someone without high expectations. I think the big appeal is that they accept credit cards, which is nice since not many places do. The food was good, drinks need much improvement. The service was ok, but our waiter seemed to have an... More

Art Cafe is conveniently located near El Nido Beach. It is a well oiled machine and my go-to place for many of my needs during my stay. I arranged 2 tours and a van ride through them. I was also able to exchange my currency, eat a nice meal (or two or three) and purchase cold water and other items.... More

All kinds of food you're looking for - typical food, pizza, pasta, salads etc. Good prices. Homemade ice cream and cakes. Very impressive. However, the staff is rather inexperienced and cannot tell you anything about the menu. But it seems like that everywhere in El Nido. I especially loved the pancit canton which is made of usual spaghetti, but so... More
