I'm grateful that my boyfriend's brother recommended this place :) We went here last April 7, 2022, around 5:30pm to beat the dinner rush. Luckily, there was a spot available with a perfect beach view. The weather was gloomy, so no colorful sunset, but it was relaxing all the same. The serving sizes of the seafood we ordered were HUGE, and it didn't take long for them to be prepared. The Sweet Chili Crab was superb! They had a 5% service charge, which is better than most that have like a 12% service charge. Definitely go here before or after peak hours to avoid large crowds. I will be including a video of their menu soon in a YouTube video :) The only con I found was since it was basically located in front of the beach, there were a lot of vendors that would constantly approach us, offer us to buy their goods, and sometimes even stayed and stared while we politely told them to go away. Kind of made eating awkward. I'm still giving them 5 stars though because the food was amazing and the prices were reasonable for the sizes.
So on our way back from our tours I asked our driver where to eat good locally and he recommended this place, I looked at their menu and it looks pretty good, we went and ordered Bistek Tagalog(9/10) , Baked Clams (9/10), Seafood Pasta (9/10), Carbonara (9/10), Chicken Nuggets (7/10), Fried Calamari (8/10), Garlic Butter Shrimp (10/10), Banana Shake and a Mango Shake both 10! It has a nice view of the beach, nice ambiance, fast service and great food! I would definitely come back and eat there again, we actually wanted to just keep eating there our whole stay but we had to try other places too. So far this was our favorite in our El Nido stay. Just 8minutes walk from our hotel, you can either walk through the beach or through the main road and do a little shopping. Overall a 5 Star gem of a restaurant amongst the many restaurants near the beach. We had a group of 4 and it's perfect for a bigger group they have another side that might fit 6 or larger but not sure how many max. Did I mention the seafood they use are fresh just outside the restaurant? Yes now you know, you can pick the ones you want to eat. Enjoy!
They have oysters! 100 peso each. Ordered one and it was huge, like my entire hand! I've never seen such a thing. As of the restaurant it's a fish restaurant overlooking the sea. Prices are ok. I ordered garlic butter squid - it was super salty and kind of average taste. Unfortunately they wanted to charge me 380 peso instead of 250 as it stated on the menu. Once the incorrect amount was flagged up it was immediately rectified. I'd go back for more oyster (they need to put them in ice though, it would be nicer cold).
The seafood pasta and mango shake were great. Good price to quality ratio. The crab is not worth it though. 650+ service charge. Barely tasted of crab as it probably wasn’t fresh. Still a good place to eat at. Just maybe avoid the crab.
We have been looking for a good seafood restaurant in El Nido for about 9days, didn't expect to find it on the 9th Day! This is by far the most unexpected eatery to have the best and freshest seafood! 👏 The eatery was just an ordinary go-to, nothing special in set up, just chairs and tables, but it was full because their food was great, the view is amazing and its simple in the perfect sense. You get to choose the fish you want and the staff will guide you through the kinds of seafood available. You can have it cooked your way as well. The only off thing about it was that the service was too slow. It could probably be because we went at a peak time. Overall, great food; great experience 👌
