Everyone is talking about this restaurant so my friends and I made sure to try their most talked about baby back ribs before ending our days in Coron. It took us 10 minutes trike ride to the place from the center town. From outside you will not notice that this is a restaurant but the ambiance inside is quite good.... More

This place had a nice presentation ..... The food was Actually pretty good.... They have an amazing tamarind drink .... However I gave them a 3 star cause I had to order 4 times time ... They didn't have shrimp, bacon, or steak!!!!! So annoyed I had my heart set on shrimp I got none!

It's a good place for tourists. A duo of guitar players. Not bad. Bamboo weave walls and ceilings. Suitable. A bit warm but tolerable - we had an electric fan pointed at us. Nothing earthshaking about the taste of the food. The baby back ribs was tasty but common. Eatable. Just like the gambas and the Kangkong was as well.... More

I went to Santino's Grill upon a recommendation from another hotel owner. Once I got there, I ordered the half order Baby Back Ribs. The serving was good for 2 people and it comes with fries or mashed potato or rice. I chose mashed potato -- and the side dish did not disappoint. The ribs were well marinated, a tad... More

After a very enervating yet exciting town tour, we treated ourselves for a delightful dinner at Santino's Grill. We loved the ambiance of the place with its live singing background and refreshing native design. Most of all, we loved the grilled tuna and fresh seaweeds :)

We are actually very excited to try Santino's because of "Byahe ni Drew" comments about it. Unfortunately, we feel a bit disappointed when were there. First, we ordered drinks in can and it served after 15mins. The main course which is the famous baby back ribs took more than 40mins to serve. Though, we were surprised of the size coz... More

This WAS my favorite restaurant in Coron when I visited two years ago but it disappointed me when I went back two days ago. Lobster was definitely NOT fresh and it costs 1500/kilo plus service charge so around 1650/kilo. Laing was almost 80% Gabi. Ribs were okay but expensive. Chicharon bulaklak is good.

This place was also recommended to me and was well worth it! You will need to take a tricycle to this one, but don't pass it up!
