Paid 8 USD for the worst ribs in my life and only served with some salad. They served them cold so sent them back and they warmed them up. Hard to eat and had maybe 100 grams of meat totall. I don’t know why people...say that the ribs are good here??? Never again for me.More

Got recommended to us by a local as some of the best food in town. Bbq is delicious and the menu is vast to cater for all tastes. Atmosphere is good and the decor is very natural and good for an evening out, also in...the centre so can walk from town!More

The longest wait in Coron, why? I don’t know. The flavor of the food tastes good, but the ribs are just huge pieces of bones that you cannot pull apart because they don’t cut the meat correctly. The huge pieces of bones have very little...meat on them. Overpriced for what you get. After I ate here, I went and got a second dinner somewhere else.More

We found this place by chance after walking up tapyas mountain. We stopped in for a few cold drinks after the hike.... we saw the ribs coming off the BBQ and had to come Back the following evening. We had, 1 x rack of ribs...1 x mango and chicken salad 1 x pork skewer and rice The ribs were that good we ordered another half rack..... if you like ribs You MUST visit Carl’s..... It’s very busy, we got here at 7 and had to wait 10-15 mins for a table but we sat at the bar and had a drink. Service was good even though it’s a very busy restaurant. Can’t believe it’s not got better reviews, best ribs me and my Partner have ever had! And we are foodies from the UK!More

Baby back ribs were awesome. And arrived in reasonable time. Prices were ok, a little steep for Philippines but tourist town so its expected. My gf got a fish fillet which was also pretty nice. Mango shake also pretty good. The restaurant only had 3-4...tables when we dined, so service was fine and not slow as per the other reviews.More

We have stayed in Coron for 5 nights and every night we walk past this place and it’s pumping with people eating and drinking. The reviews on here don’t do it justice of how delicious the meals are, how trained and professional the staff are...and how successfully run this restaurant is. I would highly recommend all types of people to attend this place, there is food for everyone! One of the best meals we’ve had in the Philippines!More

Most of what we ordered was out of stock. Very hard communication with the staff. The smokes of the bbq invaded the whole place and it makes it very hard to stand it. I would NOT go back or recommend it.

Worst experience ever by far. AN HOUR or more to get our food ( drinks included ) & the very same for all the tables around. Been chasing waiters for the bill, for finally catching one to prepare it. Stay away from there, unacceptable to...run a venue this lame...More
