I have watched this restaurant grow from its humble beginnings around 1996 to become one of the best restaurants in town. It is Swiss/Filipino run and they also have a boutique on the ground floor as well as a travel agency. Each time i am in El Nido i make a point of eating here and each night the meal... More

We booked two tours (trips A and C) with the art cafe. They were very well organised, and they speak better English than some of the other tour operators. Bobby in the booking office/shop is particularly helpful. We spoke to another person on our trip who said she had booked another tour the day before with another operator and this... More

We appreciate your review very much and pointing out the tour and departure was smooth and staff efficient and especially that we were able to avoid much of the crowds. We will pass on the good review to Bobby and the Boat crew. For sure they will be happy. Thanks a lot. More

Thanks for your comment and the good review. We may not offer exquisite lunch buffets on our tours but a decent bbq lunch is served, of which you can certainly agree. Food safety is our top priority and therefore salads and other dishes are prepare in our kitchen and not on the beach. Thanks a lot. Have great travels. More

This is a solid place to visit and eat in El Nido. There's an upstairs restaurant and a smaller seating area across the street with views of the harbour. We came twice and were warmly greeted and served on both occasions. Good selection of fresh juice, pizza, pasta and fish dishes. The desserts are lovely also, I recommend the Mango... More

My guess is that every single tourist to El Nido stops by Artcafe at some point during their visit. It is tour and info central. You can even pay for tours using credit card which is convenient. They can book your van transfer back to Puerto Princesa. Art Boutique Cafe offers the very, very, popular Island Hopping Tour A, B,... More

Great idea! It has everything: good food (the ONLY place in El Nido that takes credit cards), all the tours and recreations, shop, tourist help desk. If you are lost or have any questions or need ANYTHING - you could come there and ask for help, reserve transportation or tour. As you can suppose, it's more pricey than other places... More

My boyfriend and I booked an island hopping tour (tour A) via the boutique and Art cafe. The booking at the cafe went smoothly and they had many different offers for activities in El Nido. On the tour day, the places we visited were beautiful, but unfortunately there were so many tourists which made it difficult to enjoy. Moreover, the... More
