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.

The food at art cafe was average, nothing special, the location is also nothing special, the prices however are expensive for the area. Only ate there as they were the only 1 of 2 places accepting card in El Nido!!

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.
