Some locals recommended this place knowing I wasn't so pleased with the food I had in other places. I came here twice. I was welcomed very friendly and personal and got good service. They obviously have a lot a foreign customers and know what they expect. The ambient I would discribe as laid back with hippie vibes. It's phillipino food from Bacolod which is obviously a bit different to other regions. At my first visit I had a fish Sinigang which was nicely severed in a big bowl with the pre cooked fish and beans and tomatoes. The rich fish broth was added at the table into the bowl. I like this way of serving a soup. A simple dish with a great piece of fish that is not the usual served in this soup. Loved the taste and came back for the signature chicken which was nicely charred kn the grill. It was as good as a grilled chicken can be. As desert I had an avocado ice cream that was prepared with condensed milk and had a sweet creamy taste topped with cookie crumble. A very nice and different desert.
Great local restaurant on the way to/from Nacpan beach and near Lio beach. It seems family-run, and they put extra effort to ensure everything is great. I had a mango juice and a chicken adobo, which was great. Would love to go back anytime!
Easily our favorite dinner in El Nido, even though it was sadly our last. I could tell as soon as we walked in and heard Tame Impala and Arlo Parks playing that we were in for a special meal. Erika is super welcoming and friendly, the setup of the dining area is eclectic and fun, and the food is homey and delicious. We had the chicken inasal (marinated and grilled paa, or leg), the ensaladang talong (roasted eggplant salad served in a coconut shell), and tusok-tusok (fish balls with yummy sauces). If you’re near Lio Beach, a stop at Kape ni Manang is a must. It’s also less than 10 minutes’ drive from El Nido’s town square. Highly recommend.
Local cuisine, tasty food served in a beautiful way. We appreciated the openness of the owners and how open were they to supporting us with all the info we needed.
Definitely the best Filipino Restaurant in El Nido, Periodt This restaurant is heavily influenced by both traditional and contemporary Baculeño culinary scene. The likes of inasal, batchoy, kansi, and tsokolate can be found all over the restaurant's menu. The atmosphere, the staffs, and the owners will show you how the Filipino way of enjoying our meal. I cannot stress enough how this restaurant is a must visit whenever you're in El Nido. I recommend the following must haves: House Blend Iced Tea Ashley's Mocha Almondigas Sisig Ensaladang Talong Chicken Inasal Batchoy Lechon Kawali Josef's Adobo
