Super fun atmosphere. This is THE spot at El Nido for both locals and tourists. The talent of the musicians was extraordinary. However, they have the most disgusting bathroom i've ever been to in my life. Still loved the place though - highly recommended! It's more fun in the Philippines.

This is a true hidden gem in tourist-ridden El Nido. Locals love this place, and the cover bands NEVER disappoint. They highlight the true versatility of Filipino musicians, with vocalists belting out everything from Queen to ACDC (and all VERY impressively, I might add).

I LOVE this place! Great atmosphere, nice staff and AMAZING music! :-) <3 Been in El Nido about 7 months in total now, and Balay Tubay is a must go to on my list every day.

I got bored in my room one night, so I went out. I went here for a drink, met two Koreans, who were very funny and we talked all night. They have live music. Their first performer was a solo act of an old guy singing ballads. He has a pleasant voice, near the end of his last set he... More

Bar / Restaurant with great live music and a good menu. How well I remember in addition to standard American cuisine, steaks, etc. Italian cuisine was served spaghetti, pizza and fresh Tuna and other fish. The restaurant has a great atmosphere every night is karaoke. Prices here is acceptable although a little more expensive than other restaurants in town;)
