“Good food, poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The restaurant was full when we arrived and we had to wait a few minutes for a seat. The service was a bit slow, but not horrendous. We had chili crab and chili lobster which were both very good.

“Diver's choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Locals suggested this place and rightfully so. Love the ambiance (it's at the end of the port and perfect for sunset drinks), they have a wide array of food choices (bread is baked from scratch as well as pizza dough). Price is reasonable as servings are big. Pizza is a must! On the downside, their burger sucks (although bread was good and they serve it with a thick slab of mozzarella cheese) and if you pay with a credit card, they charge +3% over total bill.

“Terrible food and no service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

An absolute disaster from start to finish, unfriendly service team and every dish was completely bland and just churned out with a complete lack of care. These guys are the big setup in Coron and I would advise you to avoid the restaurant completely.

Dishes were presented in a random order meaning that we were eating a mixture of main courses and starters while waiting for other starters to arrive. Our fish had not even been scaled, there was no seasoning on any of the dishes, sauces tasted like they probably came out of a can and the only Filipino dish on the menu (kinilaw) was so sour it was inedible.

The worst restaurant I have been to in a very long time.

“Dining with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Enjoy your food while viewing the sea. The place is frequented by European tourists/divers. I like the Calamari, Gambas (spicy) and arroz valenciana that is not sticky rice at all.

“Okay food, terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We had dinner at Seadive on our last night in Coron. Big mistake! First of all, it took 20 minutes for the waitress to realise our presence and come to our table (after a good number of "excuse me"s from our side.)

Then, it took 60minutes for our food to come, after a good number of reminders. Everytime we asked them about our food, they would jsut zoom past, and pretend not to see us, and we had to repeatedly ask "what happened to our food" - they would not even tell us "sorry" or "it is taking time because of xxx reason".

In fact, after some time, we had decided to just walk out if our food did not arrive in 5 more minutes. It then finally appeared. Nothing fancy - t tasted okay. But I was totally pissed with their (lack of ) service

All though it looked like the waiters and waitresses were busy doing something - only I am not sure what they were doing!

On the whole, a wasted night!

(They have a dive center and backpacker accommodation - if the service is like their restaurant, I would not even want to try them!)
