    One of the local restaurant that offer food for a very cheap price. They offer variety of big servings of Pancit. They also offer Nido soup for P250.00. Prices of their viands start at P40.00. They also offer Filipino breakfast for P70.00. I tried their pansit bihon for P50.00 before my hike to Mt. Tapyas. I need some carbo for this. :)

    There is also a videoke for music lovers at night.

    It is a restaurant built above water. I saw this one from Sea Dive Resort and planned to have my dinner there. But when I saw the wooden path that was built above the water that looks weak and old that gave me the idea that it is not safe to cross for a lone traveler in a dark night. I changed my mind. I didn't see any railings that you can hold on to and no light to guide your path. Maybe one can visit this restaurant during lunch time. I think it is good to dine here since it is a water front restaurant with a nice view of the sea and islands. It is obvious they are offering seafood :)

    Japanese: Oishi desu ne?

    by kemisteryoso Written Sep 18, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This if for Japanese food lovers. It is a small restaurant located along the highway in Bankwang area going to the airport. I scanned the menu and they are offering simple Japanese food like sushi. Not comparable to any big Japanese restaurant in Manila of course at least Coron have a simple one. Prices start at P130.00. I am not a fan of Japanese food but you can try it yourself if you will visit Coron.

    Coron Bistro and Bar: Pizza and burger

    by kemisteryoso Updated Sep 18, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2 more images

    A resto bar owned by a french guy named Bruno. It is a small place frequented by foreigners. A small group can also drink here other than eating. Their specialty is Burger and Pizza which costs P180.00 It is good for 2 persons that's why I carried some on my way to the resort but I like the Pizza of Hard Koch kafe more in Bantayan Island. One can also try other menu like Spicy chicken wings, baked mussel and pasta. Meals cost 140 pesos and above and they also offer breakfast.
    I have this strange conversation with their waitress. I asked her while giving my order why she's not smiling that makes her looks unfriendly and she told me that they are prohibited to do so and that is a very strict order. I don't know why. It's very strange for me.
    They also sell map of the Calamianes group of islands for P500.00 and souvenir shirts for P1000.00 . Yes it is very expensive because they said it was printed in France.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kawayanan locally means Place where there are plenty of bamboos. This is a resto bar made of light materials like bamboo with a garden setting. The entrance is decorated with vines and plants. It has a bar located at the center they offer variety of both local and foreign dishes. I just ordered sisig and drunk 2 bottles of beer when I was here. Drinks here cost 50 pesos above and meal prices start at P130.00. They have a band that plays twice a week plus one can sing on a videoke located at the right side of the grill. It is also a nice place to hang out with good crowd.

    Lolo Nonoy's Food Station: Don't miss the Bulalo!

    by kemisteryoso Updated Sep 18, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    They offer simple menu and mostly Filipino food. It is a typical local restaurant with very simple decorations. Tables were set inside bamboo cottages. The price is very reasonable and my favorite is their Bulalo and Beef Kaldereta. Their Kaldereta is just 40 pesos per serving. The restaurant closes early so don't go beyond 9 PM.

    Banol beach refreshment stand: Where's the restaurant?

    by iclee Written Sep 13, 2010

    When you do island hopping in Coron and its surrounding islets, be sure to bring enough cold drinks because unlike in Boracay where you can find coconut peddlers/boatmen, there is just a small refreshment stand in Banol Beach serving small bottles of Coke, Royal, Sprite and some unknown brand for PHP25/bottle.

    It is manned by someone from the indigenous tribe of Coron.

    Favorite Dish: None

    Sea Dive Resort: woRST FOOD ever!

    by missmarianne Written Jul 26, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    we did not actually stay here, but we had our early dinner at their resto which I REGRET the mOSt. We should have eaten somewhere else instead. They have this menu about which and what food to order best discussing the content (ingredients) ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THEY WILL just SERVE YOU REHEATED LEFTOVER from another dish. Disgusting. When I complained at the waitress, I overheard the kitchen staff laughing at it and making nasty comments about their customer's concerns.

    Favorite Dish: I appreciate their apple shake though

  • BISTRO CORON: Discusting!

    by globalpinoy Written May 18, 2010

    Bad Ambience- in fact not even sure what ambience it have,,, trying hard to be French or Italian.. whatever....so close to the road which you can hear the noise of the cars/tricycle passing by and the dust getting in the restaurant then to your food.

    Bad Pizza- we order "Hawaiian" and it taste like the frozen pizza you can buy in the supermarket and re-heat it in the oven.

    Don't offer tap water- We try to ask if they offer water from the faucet its part of our usual routine when we try new restaurant...they said they dont offer water from the faucet because their water is dirty... the waitress ask us to just order from their drinks bar... then we ask ourself... if their water is dirty... could the pasta we order dirty too? as thats what the kind of water they have... or they just want to make more money from the customer???

    Bad Service- We order some take away... and they charge us 10 pesos for the styropor container... after we paid more than 1,000 PHP for our food, 4 persons... isnt that enough for them to earn to cover for the container? What pissed us off is since we paid extra 10 pesos for the take-away container, it should have spoon or fork.. but unfortunately.... it dont have... how the hell do they expect someone to eat a take away, what a poor quality, poor restaurant.. I heard the owner is Italian... but I've been to Italy many times and pizza dont taste like that.....

    Favorite Dish: Nothing.. pizza is bad,,, pasta is bad... so discusting...

    This is where we had our breakfast and some of our lunch. Food is good and price is reasonable. I think they have a different name to the resto but the only thing you need to remember is that it's in Darayonan Lodge :)

  • Restaurants in Coron: Good and Bad Restaurants in Coron

    by serendip_finder Updated Mar 1, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Herewith is our opinion on some of the restaurants we have been to in Coron, Palawan, Philippines. All of there are located in the town proper.

    For the best food in Coron, Palawan, Philippines, go to Bistro Coron. My family and I always eat there with some of my local friends whever we are in Coron. The interiors as not up to par. But the food is great! Their pizzas a very good. But my fave is the Thai Steamed Fish, with the fish steamed just right, not tough & not too soft, and the thai ingredients are crisp and perfectly proportioned. My wife likes the crab and shrimp dishes. They also have a good, if a bit limited, wine selection.

    For the best retaurant and bar ambiance in Coron, go to the Village Lodge, Restaurant and Bar. Perfect island-life interiors, lighting just right, the right background music for the hip and semi-hip crowd. The food is also good. The bar has a wide selection of drinks.

    Another place with an interesting ambiance is La Serenata. It was some sordid-looking, but interesting, mermaid scuptures for columns. It is located offshore accessible by a footbridge. It has a 360-degree view of the town's busy waterfront, the bay, and the surrounding islands and mountains. I would rate the food between fair and moderately good.

    Another good place in Coron was Old House Restaurant. The "Chicken in a Basket", which is basically a fried checken, is good.

    Kawayan Grill is a budget outdoor bar with native dining cabanas set under a big tree. The food is Ok. mostly grilled. Music is mostly pop. The ambiance is great in the evening.

    We find Michelangelo italian restaurant overrated. The prices are skyhigh compared to other restaurants in Coron. When we went for lunch there, they were our of so many increadiests--italian rice, sauces, etc. We had to settle carbonara and sandwich. At they food was not that good. It was disappointing. I would not go there again.

    Another restaurant in Coron that disappoints is the SeaDive restaurant. I ordered the blue marlin there and it was tough. The sauce was nondescript and too salty. I would prefer not to eat there again.

    There are so many new restaurants, bars, and cafes opening up in the Poblacion (town proper) in Coron, there would be a lot of choices, even for the discriminating.

    If you visit Coron for holiday, I advise you not to book in an island resort as they tend to be isolated. Instead, book in a good hotel or lodge in the Poblacion (town proper). From there you can arrange daytrips to the different islands, lakes, beaches, divesites, hotsprings, etc. You also have the option of renting a bike, go herseback, or hike to explore the island, including Mt Tapyas, Mt darala, different warefalls, etc. Plus you can exprefience the island lightlife.

    Favorite Dish: Bistro Coron - Pizzas, Thai Style Steamed Fish, Crab Dishes, Shrimp Dishes.

    Village Bar & Restaurant - Bulalo (Beef Shank Stew)

    Old House - Chicke in a Basket

    La Sereneta - Grilled Blue Marlin

    Kawayan Grill - chicken barbecue

    Hotel Michelangelo: Best Italian and wine on the island

    by DSwede Updated Feb 8, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sister and I enjoying last supper in Coron

    Its a bit further off from the main part of town, so tourists usually only find this place upon recommendations from others. But I will endorse it further by saying that it is among the highlights of my stay in Coron.

    The hotel itself is undergoing renovations, so I cannot speak of the rooms, but the restaurant is all open air, immediately off of the water. If you are lucky and the tables are not occupied, you can have your meal only a few steps away from the cooling breezes off the sea.

    Favorite Dish: All the food was delicious, particularly the seafood pastas. The Italian owner/chef is a master. We sampled the lasagna, the tagliatelle negre and the savory sashimi tanguige... all of which melted in our mouths.

    Put the above together with a salad and a bottle of wine and our bill was still under $40US.

    Bistro Coron: By far the best in town

    by Jean-Noel Updated Mar 23, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With some friends at Bistro Coron

    Bistro Coron, the best in town, is a rather small restaurant owned by Bruno, a retired French anthropologist, who is also doing the cooking. Just next doors, Bruno also ceeps a bar where, sometimes till late in the night, local academics, globetrotters and expats hobnob with diving tourists. Around 1976 (during the Marcos regime) Bruno started an anthropological research on an authartic tribe living in a remoted area of the forest of south Palawan.

    Favorite Dish: We tried several meals, on different days and everything was excellent. If, like me you enjoy deserts, try the Chocolate mousse. They also serve a very good fresh Mango juice.
