When I was based in El Nido for a year, I always looked forward to eating in Tambok's. As a Filipino food enthusiast, I always looked forward to eating their delicious food during my day-offs. I'd always order take-out afterwards because I just couldn't get...enough of their treats. If you plan on taking a vacation in El Nido, this restaurant should be on your bucketlist!More

Just arrived to El nido and was searching for a place to grab a bite. Went in and ordered a rice bowl. Junna, the waitress, was very friendly, offered me some water and gave me a magazine to read. The food was very fresh and...delicious. Great value for money. Recommended to some friends and they also enjoyed. Just be aware that this place is closed on Sundays.More

Read an article in the plane regarding this place. We weren’t disappointed! Local modern Filipino food done extremely well at a reasonable price! No matter fully you get, make sure you try the desserts!

By far the best and easiest meal in El Nido. My girlfriend had the grilled fish which was tasty and fresh while I had the Chicken Insal and pancit buko. Good relaxed atmosphere with lots of locals.

We ordered the fish which they sell for a 400g fish and I'm sure it wasn't even 250g and a dish of noodles to share. The food is in the average and expensive to compete to any other restaurant. When we paid our bill we...had to go somewhere else to eat because we was still hungryMore

I definitely say the food is great not so expensive not so cheap. I go here with newly friend known in tours. The employee made our day great. Specially when we start to eat their food.

Sadly this meal didn’t live up to the hype I read about online. After reviewing the menu and looking on tripadvisor we chose 5 dishes and called them to deliver to our villa as we were only staying local. The food came and was very...disappointing. On point of ordering we asked for two dishes and they said they didn’t have them. The food was lacking flavour to be honest. Seemed rushed. Very disappointing to be honest.More
