Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great little spot just back from the beach (so no sand blowing in when it's windy!). Lovely food. I went for the spinach quiche and salad which was super fresh and tasty. Cocktails are also good. Very friendly staff, especially Joan!

We had both breakfast & lunch at this superb venue. Very fresh produce from their own gardens made for extensive tasty offerings. Great eco credentials - if only every place followed suit. Good views over the bay.

Great atmosphere, great drinks, great food! Stopped at Artcafe after it was highly recommended and really enjoyed my time - this is an El Nido must!! It’s really beautiful inside and if you sit on the balcony you can hear the waves on the beach...and feel the ocean breeze! I ordered a pizza and an espresso martini, both were just perfect!More

Went to El Nido for vacation, asked a local where to get good pizza. Was pointed to Artcafe. The food was great, staff was very friendly, especially Leoda. I recommend getting their mango float for dessert.
