I've been to this place more than once, since I work here in Coron in one of the hotels. I try to make it a point to try out local restaurants so I can make a legitimate recommendation to hotel guests. This was the first restaurant I tried upon arriving here in Coron. I was not really impressed... read more

Moderately priced the food was okay without anything to be overly excited about. What did get me really upset was... After dinner I went to the Comfort Room. I had to wait as one of the 2 CRs was out of action. The previous tenant to me was one of the waitstaff who went straight from the CR to the... More

They have the best crispy tadyang (crispy beef short ribs)! They also serve really good baby back ribs (very large serving).

Maybe this place may be better in the evening. Went there at lunchtime and ordered baby back ribs (apparently their speciality). They arrived along with mash potato and both ribs and mash were very cold. I sent it back and the same ribs turned up again marginally warmer but still cold. At this point I questioned them how this could... More

We ordered the lemon garlic prawns and were told they only had smaller shrimps. When the shrimps arrived, they were so mushy - obviously not fresh. The fish salpicao, though, was delicious.

We went here because of the good reviews that I read. Its a little bit expensive. We ordered grilled squid and laing but we are not satisfied with the squid. Its like a gum(maybe overcooked). I like their laing, its very sumptuous.

We ordered their version of dynamite, grilled tuna salad, garlic rice platter, grilled prawns, baby back ribs, sinampalukang bulalo and honey tamarind. The dynamite comes with salsa. I think mango salsa. Well it works with the dynamite. Grilled tuna taste fine. The serving is good for 3-4 i think. Im disappointed with the grilled prawns. For the price, the servings... More
