The palce is pretty crowded but the manager was friendly and found us a small table. We ate 2 salads which were tasty and my boyfriend also took a chicken shawarma which was ok. The best part were the healthy mango and pineapple shakes!

Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food was excellent during every visit. A diverse menu with tasty looking options, everything we tried was delicious. We're going to miss the food and can't recommend enough!!!

Perfect place for a good breakfast, and for an amazing happy hour (with the margaritas). Good atmosphere, good music, good dishes for dinner. Without a doubt... is the best spot in El Nido.

Great food, great service and great vibes. The menu details all the ingredients and possible allergic items. They were very happy to change something for me, giving excellent alternatives. Just loved it and I will come back again for sure.

We came to Happiness because they offer vegan options. We loved the loud music and happy vibes and atmosphere. You have the choice of seated tables or swings at the bar. I would say that the food was more Middle Eastern rather than Mediterranean as...advertised but still super yummy!! Delicious cocktails too - would recommend the peach daiquiri!More

Great vibe! I'm coeliac and cannot have even the slightest bit of gluten. Unlike most places (every place) I've been to in the Philippines, Happiness bar really took it seriously and made sure no gluten was in my food. They seemed to have a good...understanding of what it was. And on top of that the food was absolutely delicious and the staff were super friendly. Also, swing bar stools? Sold.More

We ate here a few times as there is a good selection for vegetarians and they accept card payments (5%charge). They don't give out WiFi though. After a few visits the menu is all pretty much the same and it's more expensive compared to other...restaurants. We ordered the hummus selection and were only given half a pitta for three large bowls of hummus. We were charged extra for additional pitta.More
