“Loved their lobster!”
Review of Lobster King

Lobster King
Ranked #38 of 80 Restaurants in Coron
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 July 2017

Had dinner here last July 2, 2017 with my family during our Coron vacation. At first, I was wary about coming here for dinner, after reading the mix review from tripadvisor. So, heeding some of the suggestions and concerns that were posted, we went early (6:30 pm) and we were seated right away because there were just 2 tables being served that time. It was a good thing we arrived early as after 15 minutes or so, guests started to pile in and the place was easily filled up. We ordered the 1Kg P950 lobsters (7 pcs) and had it cooked in garlic and butter and it was so good. In fact, one of my sons said that for him, that was the highlight of our Coron vacation :) Talking to them nicely and approaching the service staff with a smile is all it took for us to get a good service. I suggest for anyone coming here to be nice to the staff :) Yes, the place is not a fine dining place, but if you want terrific lobsters, this is the place to go when in Coron.

We went here twice in our four days trip. Super fresh seafood, nicely cooked. Service is standard, make sure to book in advance as sometimes there is a long queue. Point to note is that the 'salt and pepper' option has sweet chilli sauce, which is weird for me. Otherwise, perfect seafood.

Try the Sizzling Lobster to enjoy the affordable lobster at fullest.
It's definitely a steal~ But better to go early as these baby lobsters runs out fast.
If not this then you will be ending with spending way too much money compared to Phuket or Krabi of Thailand which only cost you just 30~40 US dollars for an arm length fat lobsters with cooking of your choice.

Despite of the not so inviting ambiance of the restaurant, Lobster King really offers the best and oozing fresh Lobsters in Coron. This is where we also had the best and unique taste of Bistek Tagalog. Its so mouthwatering that we want to order more and more.

Service wise, its quite bad since we needed to wait for sooooo long before their staffs noticed and assisted us in our seating.

Arrived there around 8pm and to our surprise, a lot of food in their menu were already not available specially their crabs. It somehow gave us a bit of disappointment.

Overall, though we were not impressed with their service, We would still love to go back here to have another batch of fresh lobsters and beef steak.:)

This is known restaurant in Coron for its lobsters which is by the way very expensive. I find the food here OK but expensive. Not good if you are really traveling on a budget.
