Heard this music and followed where it was coming from. Went inside for a drink and a light meal and was not disappointed. Had a beer and the paella. They had great tunes, atmosphere was really nice. Had a bohemian feel to the whole place.

It's on the waterfront in downtown El Nido, which is a small town. Everywhere is close to it, at worst it would be a 50c trip in a tricycle.
