I not an animal or pet hater but this place, cats STRAY dogs and cats abound. Dogs even have skin disease and always scratching their body. Just imagine ticks and other parasites soread all over the resto. The place is filthy and service is bad. You will appetite once you imagine how poorly maintained this place and reflect the hygiene in their kitchen. I recommend to TRIPVISOR to strip there certification and recommendation to spare the advisors refutation. Also the city health office will conduct ocular inspection of the place to avert spread of disease.

Went here for valentine's dinner but was ignored for 45 minutes whilst waiting for our table to be cleared and to receive a menu. Two separate groups of locals were seated immediately and it was clear we were not welcome as every time I asked for our menu and for our table to be cleaned, the staff members just walked off and completely ignored us.

If you're a tourist, avoid this restaurant.

Had 8 viands counting in BBQ rice and a soup. Had also their babyback ribs. All tasted great. Washing up after dinner, their lavatory had no water and no faucet; toilet was dirty. Sèems rest of facilities were run down. 5 stars for taste but 1 star for poor facility. What a pity.

Good squid dishes, i bit far from Coron. But worth the trip. The sizziling octopus was spicy and good.

After a recommendation from our tour guide, we decided to give this restaurant a try. We came for the highly recommended ribs, however upon ordering were told they were only available for dinner service. Instead we ordered a Bicol express which is fried pork strips in a coconut milk sauce lightly spiced. The menu states a spice level of 3 but we did not find it at all spicy. We also ordered a seafood Kare Kare which was a vegetable and seafood stew in a thick creamy peanut sauce, and 400g of (or equivalent of 2 small crabs) cooked in coconut milk. The food was so delicious, however the Bicol express was the standout. We have been in the Philippines for 17 days and the Bicol express is by far our favourite dish we have tried so far. The servings are quite large too, we didn’t finish all the Kare late and could have got away with one less dish. Service is a bit slow and needs some improvement but seems to be a recurrence in all of the Philippines!
