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

No place else in Coron offers the best baby back ribs and beef ribs but Santino's. We also enjoyed their other fare like sisig. Food is tasty. They also got great moringa-lemon and sampaloc-honey cold drinks concocted right there in their kitchen. Their Dulce de Leche Cake and their Choco Caramel Fudge were delightfully surprising. It would have been nice... More

I am not a fan of pork but their baby back ribs had me at first bite. It was delicious and juicy, well cooked from the outside to the bones. I can definitely give this restaurant a 5-star for that! Another is their sisig! The sizzle of the pork was just right even if the weather was warm the day... More

When people get tired of eating all the fresh seafood in the island tours, it makes sense that many crave Meat. Baby back ribs to be exact. Santinos grill is simple place with good food. Prices are proportional to the quality of food it serves. The only thing that doesn't make this place excellent is that it's too successful for... More

The place is well-ventillated. Fresh air, good ambiance. We really love the ribs and the fries. I think it's homemade. Also, I ordered avocado shake, it's really good as well. I wasn't able to take pictures of the food, because we're really hungry but they're really good.
