We were visiting Vanilla beach and decided to eat here after such amazing reviews. The food is great, service good & good value for money too. The dishes are really interesting, I recommend the squid and tofu, my partner had this and said it was...delicious. I really recommend trying it out !More

This place is definitely worth a 2nd try! We were served by ANGIE & we were amazed as how much detail she knows is the food they serve. My husband and I both had fish and was much elated being served fresh catch! The Chocolate...Mousse made with Palawan Cacao and liquor soaked sponge cake bottom was excellent! A definite MUST VISIT when in El Nido.More

This little restaurant was our favorite on the Philippines. The food is absolutely perfect and not so local as you might think when reading the name of the restaurant. The waiters are sooo kind and sweet and again the food is amazing!!!

I and my friends were in El Nido and were at first attempting to get seats at the restaurant on Vanilla Beach but it was full. We then walked over to the row of shops and saw Local Provisions, which looked neat and inviting. The...menu was interesting and when our food arrived, all of us were satisfied with the taste and quality of our dishes. The salads were fresh, my rice bowl with fish was delicious, and the lamb pizza was great, too. Everyone in our group had something good to say about their food. The staff was friendly as well.More

Before eating here we quickly read the reviews. The catch of the day was good. But everything else wasnt great. The fries where expensive for what where clearly frozen. The sisig was a bit tough and rubbery, something I usually enjoy. Shame, maybe bad timing,...we where the last customers.More

Hello Eddie, Thank you for the review. We're sad to know that you had a disappointing experience with us. As for the expensive french fries, yes it's imported and the menu didn't state that it was "hand cut and local". Just so you know, local...More

We dined at local provisions for dinner and the staff were very welcoming and accomodating to our queries. The food was delicious and the cocktail menu was fresh and exciting! Our waitress, Junna, was an absolute pleasure and was keen to share her local knowledge...and ensure we had a pleasant experience. For such a newly established restaurant, definitely impressive and worth a visit!More

This was honestly one of our best meals we had while in the Phillipines. Fresh and flavoursome and making it even better it’s owned by a Filipino with all produce sourced from local farmers only (hence the name). Would definitely recommend and certainly go back...again!More

After spending the day at Vanilla Beach we decided to check this place out. It was warm and welcoming from the outside. The food, ambiance and service were great. There is inside and outside seating, a nice variety of fresh, delicious food, good portions and...charming decor. We really loved eating here. One of the best meals we had while in El Nido. Highly recommend.More

Local Provisions was very accommodating to our group of 11, setting up tables outside where we requested to eat. Angie, our hostess, was efficient and unfazed by our large group. I ordered the catch of the day, a grouper grilled with lemongrass and curry sauce....It was delicious! The group shared a ginger bread brownie and chocolate tablea mousse for dessert which we all enjoyed. We were all happy with the food we ordered and appreciated the chef stopping by to chat. I highly recommend Local Provisions.More
