We visited this place several times for beers and snacks after the tours and diving. The place is clean and has beautiful views. Prices are reasonable and the menu has good options. The halopino-cheese sticks from appetizer menu are to die for! Did not try entree so can not comment on that. Overall, nice place!

We ate here on our first night in El Nido and it was good food! Quick service, nice view (on the beach above a diver shop) and a good selection of cocktails and shots. You can also order a shisha and puff away! Makes the place smell fruity!

We ate here twice during our ten days in El Nido. Both times we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It's nice to see such big smiles on the faces of the staff. The food was quite good, the souvlaki in particular...but I think maybe the hummus could be made with less lemon. The seating was comfortable... More

Came here a few times for drinks, Shisha and some food. The drinks were good and the food offered was tasty. Hummus, spring rools etc were all good. Has a great view over the bay. Little tricky to find. Walk along the mian street and you will see a sign for Habibi. To get access you have to go through... More

We stopped in for some Middle Eastern food...liked the small and quaint layout of the restaurant. No slippers allowed (ie no flip flops). Were disappointed in the quality of the falafel and hummus. The humus was soupy and the falafel was not very substantial (though heavy on cardamom seeds). It was packed in the 10 table restaurant. Lots of shisha... More
