We went to Santino's on the 26 August 2018 without a reservation. Since there were 7 of us, it took the service staff awhile to finally being able to accommodate us. We were really appreciative of their service. The place is cosy and service was great. We ordered a full slab of ribs, pasta, beef and chicken. The ribs was really excellent. Highly recommended. The beef cooked with garlic and roast chicken were nice too. We liked the ribs best! This is a must go restaurant when you are in Coron.

This restaurant was recommended by one of our tour guides as it is just in the vicinity of our hotel.
We ordered the half slab pork ribs, chili garlic mud crabs, sea grape salad and eggplant salad. The serving of the pork ribs was huge for less than P400. The mud crabs were weighed before us before they were cooked. Both salad (sea grape and egg plant) were very tasty!
Would highly recommend this place to people on a budget.

Location is abit far from the center of Coron but easily reached via trike.

Food serving sizes are abit on the large side or sharing for us Asians.

Suggest to arrive earlier than rush hour to get decent wait time -- but you're on an island so time should pass by easily.

Photos do not do justice to their taste.

Their ribs are value for money.

Their kilawin tanigue or ceviche is to die for. Im a guy who loves to try ceviche all over the country and theirs is on the above average taste bordering on "must try every time".

Their garlic butter shrimps will make you eat so much you will regret it.

Carbonara for the kids is safe and huge as well.

Go the extra effort and try the place. No running water in the sink though but that shouldnt stop you feom enjoying comfort food like what you find here.

Very nice spot to try excellent sea food. Comfy space and good service. Maybe it's a bit expensive in comparison with the rest of Te restaurant in town but it's worth it.

If you've been to Coron, you would know that kawayanan grill is the most famous restaurant in the town. (Or at least back when I visited)
But frankly I think their quality does not match their fame.
Their foods are pretty expensive but the quality isn't even close to that of street canteens.
We only went to Santino's Grill on our last day.
Unfortunately, we couldn't taste their baby back ribs (which according to them, is their best seller) nor any of their other barbecues since we arrived too late.
So instead we had kebab, buffalo wing, seafood fried rice and sisig and holy cow they are all darn delicious.
The waitress who served us was friendly and accommodating.
But others were not. Everyone else was too busy so it was really hard to get a just cup of water that my wife had to go to the kitchen to ask.
