If you are visiting El Nido this is one of the restaurants that you must try. :) Sea Slugs is now called Seaside but good thing the tricycle drivers know exactly where it is. We went there for dinner and I ordered a fish meal (which I already forgot) and my friend ordered a shrimp meal. Both were really REALLY... More

Ordered lobsters, gambas, and chopsuey. Loved all of it!!! Serving was plenty and worth it for the price. The lobster was understandably more expensive but it was worth it! It was fresh and cooked almost perfectly!

Food tastes good and priced fairly. We dined for lunch here. My bf ordered grilled porkchop, since steak was not yet available in he time we got there. Serving is big, it was served with two big porkchops and and rice. He liked it. I ordered crabs, i was opting for just steamed crabs, but the waitress insisted on the... More

Although the view and location is great, for a price of roughly 200-350 pesos per dish the food is really not worth it. We had grilled chicken, chicken cordon bleu and the beef steak. Especially the fries that came with the two chicken dishes were quite bad. Very oily, not salted and not crunchy. Also the breaded skin of the... More

Had the tuna steak and it was delicious. Good service in a venue that has a basic but rustic feel. It now operates under a new name

They host live music at least three nights a week, the food is great and it's location right on the beach with cosy wooden atmosphere make it a nice place to hang out.

The location is a bit off from the Aplaya but the tricycle ride is worth it. Sea Slugs offers dinner buffet for just Php 300/person and you won't regret eating there. The selection on the buffet is very good (of course we didn't expect too much since it is just budget buffet) but the highlight of the restaurant is the... More

This place has a new name, but is still in the same spot. The waitress didn't know what some of the drinks were. They were also out of quite a bit of the food. The setting is nice. Just check to see if they have the food you'd like before you place drink etc. orders.
