Good food and lovely staff. They also have a tourist information inside the shop. Here you can book your tours, flights etc. Great omelets and pasta dishes! ...not so great fish n chips ;) The basil mojito (non-alcoholic) is a must try!

Overpriced but was worth one visit to have a nice quality meal. Nice staff and good food, not great. Art cafe was nice for boat tours - sadly all of those are over-populated.

We went there for breakfasts but the coffee was disgusting, the pancakes were served with glucose syrup instead of maple syrup or honey. The waitress wasn’t really paying attention to us and the prices are way too expensive.

Good food that’s relatively quick with a very nice view. Make sure they repeat your order because they forgot two things we ordered.

It's on the waterfront in downtown El Nido, which is a small town. Everywhere is close to it, at worst it would be a 50c trip in a tricycle.
