... pricey it was at El Nido so we thought this was reasonable.
We had met an Austrian couple on the bus ( Melanie and Johannes (I think), they stayed in the room next door and recommended a pizza place down the road. So you can see now we have fallen into bad ways eating pizza and other western fare! I think after all the Filippino food we have tried, this is the best bet!
