Three stars is the average between the four stars of noodles with vegetables (very yummy), and two stars of the French fries, not good at all. Normal prices and service. Bonus, you're eating at the same sand, five meters to the sea.

Nice place to have a drink and eat a meal. Food is ok. Prices are reasonable, about the same as the other places on the beach, and definitely cheaper than the seafood places right next to it. Friendly staff. Pool table in the back, 50peso per game.

The German owner of the bar can often be found slinging shots behind the bar. He's chatty and fun. The drinks are fairly priced and the offerings include imported German beer amongst the usual San Miguel brews. We didn't try the food, but portions seemed fair and dishes looked good for pub/bar food - not overly high end. Definitely a... More

I love the place. Especcially the german snitzels. It breathes the old school el nido before major investors came in. Don't expect top notch dishes and service,.. But instead expect to be at a place that gives you a sense of el nido 10 years ago,.. Expect friendly owners with lots of stories, expect great value food,.. A mix of... More

Great location, poor tables and chairs I have been only for breakfast which was good and cheap and they serve French press coffee and nice bread. What I didn't like was that in the 7.00 am breakfast the music was so load and some guests are just drinking and dancing which was. Not comfortable at breakfast time

We ordered a chilli con carne that usually is served with meat, beans , nachos and cheese . What we got was meat,beans and some rice. Nowhere in the world do they serve rice with chilli con carne. When we returned the order, the chef came to Our table and acted arrogant that it how they serve. Then we ordered... More

Apart the beachfrontlocation the restaurant is nothing special, service slow and not attentive at all. Interesting when the bill comes and there was a clear mistake the owner instead of checkin and apologizing asked us what else was in the plate like we were cheating them... consider changing approach to your customers!!!

Enjoyed a meal over the Christmas period here...other reviews are pretty much spot on in that the food is good (pizza was the best I've had in a while!)..but the service was a little frustrating*
