I read in a review that they have the best backribs and they actually deliver. Very tasty, soft and juicy. My american boyfriend also mention that they make perfect mush potatoes. Make sure to dine here when youre in coron.

it's a must to order the bicol express and baby back ribs. the baby back ribs even for a half slab will cater 2 persons with a big stomach. the bicol express will make you think twice for the twist of the so called "gata".

However, I had hoped we could go back for the Ribs .. one side of it.. that we saw at another table.. it look amazing and the 3... More

When one of my friends found out we finally got to visit the place (which is probably the most popular restaurant in Coron), she asked me how the food was and was it delicious, I'm like, "Are you kidding me? I can't think of a word for it. 'Delicous' is not enough - not even close." You wouldn't want to... More

It's carnage the way we went through the slabs of the best baby back ribs I ever tasted. Bring me my baby back, baby back ribs! Pero in fact, everything I had here is so good. I also love the drinks (freckled lemonade and honey tamarind).

This restaurant is hard to find on the main highway in a barangay with just a small sign. The food is great and the music sounds good. You done right beside people in their neighborhood so you get to see their daily lives. Love their halo halo

Had to wait for almost an hour for the brown-rice that is paired with my ordered Sizzling Squid. No kidding! The Sizzling Squid was served ahead. So, talked with the kitchen people and told me they have no brown rice. Ended up serving me white rice! The Sizzling Squid was okay. The ribs was good but service is slow. Prices... More

The taste of the food is very average, nothing special. The restaurant is always ful but I don´t understand why. If you want to get the menu you have to ask for it, if you want to order you have to ask for it, nothing here works from alone, the service never would aproach you actively by itself. They forget...

Hey Santino, buy more ingredients and hire more people. Very little available options from a pretentiously extensive menu and no service at all. Waited half an hour to be told our orders were not available and still no drinks. And they were expecting service charge.. ha! What a joke - terrible terrible terrible

Thank anatee20
