We stumbled across this place when staying nearby. What a find! Ended up having dinner here three nights - every dish was fantastic - the Philippine food, Mexican and Italian cuisine. Lovely service. Great for couples or groups. Would highly recommend.

After six years in the center of El Nido, the new and larger Lonesome Carabao Lounge is open at the entrance to Pops District in Corong Corong, just off the National Highway. Cozy and cool downstairs restaurant, open-air seating on the second floor, same great drinks, tunes and menu. Delicious food ranging from Mexican (our speciality) to seafood to pasta and everything in between, with many vegetarian options too. Awesome breakfasts featuring omelettes, huevos rancheros, breakfast burritos or shakshuka. Coffee brewed strong and fresh. Try our Chicken cordon bleu sandwich, pesto chicken pasta or a spicy Filipino soup for lunch. Take advantage of our late-afternoon happy hour or the even happier hour just before we close. Come give us a try!
