We’ve been in Coron for a week diving and snorkeling and trying to find each night a good place where to have dinner.
We’ve tried from the typical Philippine restaurant to the American food / Italians pizza or the new vegan places.
Yesterday we wanted to give a try to Shima because of Tripadvisor reviews and ... oh boy... it was a surprisingly great experience !!

We are sushi’s lovers and have tried some of the best Japanese restaurants of anywhere we travel to.
Shima sushi rolls where just pure flavor.
The presentation of each dish is lovely, as in a top cuisine restaurant.
The taste is just delicious , a fantastic choice of each fish combined with the best ingredients.
We ordered 3 sushi rolls and a tempura for 2 people. We can’t say which was more tasty, all of them were just perfect.
The service is extremely good, very fast, nice and polite.
The price?? Amazing for what you have. The chef used to work in Nobu group and at least in the Nobu restaurant of Spain (Barcelona or ibiza), you would end up paying for the meal we had, 3 or 4 times the price of Shima.

Today is our last night in Coron and guess what? We are coming back

Read about the credentials of the chef and we came by here for our last dinner in Coron Town. Right next to the crowded mexican food which was by the same owner., shima was quieter. The sushi platter at php 1000 was so worth the money!!!!! 32 pieces in all. We were stuffed!

Tasty tasty sushi. Huge portion sizes, my critique would be that the rolls were too big. Would have rather had one or two more rolls, stretched out smaller the such big ones
