This was recommended by our guide so we went there to give it a try. The food was terrible! We went there hungry but didnt even finish our food. Slow service.

This is the best lobster you can get at coron at a fairly reasonable price. I had a 400gms lobster and paid about 1000pesos and the lobster was fresh. I had my lobster in the spicy chilli sauce as I remember. You can even hold a big lobster and take pictures. Service was a bit slow as the lobster took... More

Just like another reader we went there upon recommendation from our tour guide. The place was busy but there was no line. We were immediately seated and our order was taken in about 5 minutes. 15 minutes later we asked a few of the staff about our order. They said it's coming. 15-20 minutes later we were told it would... More

Positives: food is just about the best in Coron. Great value for money. Varied menu and the staff are knowledgeable about what they cook. Negatives: Even though they have mosquito coils, I think because they have stagnant water there are too many mosquitos. If you go, use off lotion. Staff don't come when called or signalled. More often than not... More

This was the closest restaurant to Coron Westown Resort. We were given good reviews by our tour guide only to be disappointed. Most of the food that we like to order is not available considering it is just 7:30pm, like pork BBQ and calamares. We ended up ordering pinakbet, Crocodile sisig and lobster sisig. Both tasted good. We do have... More

We went in here because we were craving lobster, ok fresh lobster, the service was not superb and a bit pricey. Don't expect for fine dining, this is just a simple restaurant. But a word of advice is, if the hotel you are staying are as friendly and nice where I stayed they would gladly shop for some and cook... More
