It has the best buttered shrimp. The service is okay and gets crowded because it caters to most of the arriving tourist from land tour and those staying in the nearby resorts and glamping sites.. In front is a picturesque Nacpan beach.

This was my worst meal in the PH and that is saying a lot as food is normally mediocre. Grilled pork was chunks of pork fat fried, not a single bit of meat, what a ripoff!

This looks like a family business, making do with beach-side kitchen. The food is good and the drinks are cold. The beach outlook is hard to beat.

Can rent sunbeds (2)and umbrella for 400 pesos. Beer was cheap only 50 pesos. Food is SUPER slow and by the time it makes it to you it’s cold and does not even taste good. Ordered calamari was super dry and chewy, the fries were...greasy, hard and cold, and pork adobo was mostly pork fat and no meat-did not finish our food. Quality of the food needs to improve. I would give this place a pass as far as the food but the sunbeds and beer were great.More

Went here for lunch around 12:30 pm. Ordered 4 dishes and the lady took the order. She came back after 5 minutes saying only 1 dish is available and the rest is sold out. Won't even recommend

In front of the beach, that's the only good thing about it. We ordered snacks at around 12:30, the place was half full, it took them 50min to bring us one fries, and another 20min for a grilled squid. During this time, when asked how...long for the food, the answer was always the same, "it's coming". They only took me seriously when I said I would cancel my order and leave. They then probably hurried up and brought us a grilled squid not fully cooked and not clean, that went straight to the dogs surrounding our table, disgusting. Such a waste of money and time.More

They have a great location! I ordered the grilled squid and was pretty good with some rice. They recommend it over the fish. I ordered my food and went for a swim and they were great to let me know when it was ready. They...did have a few street dogs in the restaurant hiding from the sun.More

In this restaurant the food is good. But be careful when the cashiers prepare the addition ... it could prove more expensive than expected

Don't come for charm or warmth. This is a pack em in type of place, with eccentric and chaotic ordering and serving - we had wrong orders, no orders and more. This is a shame because the food itself is really good, a great chicken...curry, and grilled chicken and fish too. However, choice is limited on the beach and you'll want to get back to the sun, sand and sea anyway.More

A place to remember. Very good food just on the beach 🌊 The prices are ok compared with the prices from the city El Nido.

Ordered about two dishes and was informed an hour later that one of it wasn't available. Buttered shrimps were drowned in oil and served cold, avocado shake was a bit bland and Chopsuey was really ordinary. If a lot of people are rushing through Nacpan...beach, make sure to order your preferred food a bit earlier and follow up before it gets busy.More

If you are in El Nido you must go to Nacpan beach. It is one if not the best beach we have ever been. Not a lot of tourists (and we there in the New Year period). It is very calm and quiet. You can...really enjoy the sea. And if you are hungry sit in this place and order some sea food and enjoy. The sea food is good and the beer is cold.More

Kyla's Cocina is one of the very few places to eat at Nacpan Beach. We had lunch here. Chopsuey was ok, the fruit shake & fresh coconut were good while the buttered mussels are delicious! Highly recommended!
