Tonino's is a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant that offers international cuisine located at the ground floor of the hotel itself. It caters to all customers and the venue is never intimidating. The ambiance is really homey and the music is soothing to the ears. This is a good venue if you want to dine in a decent place with good food and atmosphere.
Upon entering, on the left side you can find D' Cellar. This is where the different wines are displayed.
They also have a cheese station for those who love different kinds of cheeses.
Let's take a look at what we gobbled up that evening...
|Fresh Pineapple Juice - Php60.00 ; Fresh Watermelon Juice - Php65.00 ; Fresh Ripe Mango Juice - Php60.00|
|Lemon Iced Tea - Php65.00 ; Calamansi Iced Tea - Php65.00|
The beverages are really good. These are made from fresh fruit juices that quenches your thirst. Perfect!
|Sizzling Squid - Php85.00/100 grams|
I love this dish. The squid is so tender and grilled to perfection plus the sauce is something that we can't forget that evening. It is made of lemon with curry and spices that leaves our mouth watering.
|Burger Steak - Php139.00|
This is not the same with the usual burger steaks that we can find in some fastfood chains. The meat is so tender and juicy plus the gravy was really yummy!
|Lechon Kawali - Php195.00|
This is one of the best lechon kawali that I've tasted in my whole life so far. The meat is so tender and there isn't much fat on it. It is really fried perfectly.
|Special Pancit Guisado - Php185.00|
This is special because of the sauce that they are using. It tickles the taste buds and the serving is really generous. We did not even consumed everything.
|Sizzling Sisig - Php140.00|
I can say that this is also one of the best sisig in town. The spiciness is just perfect for the dish plus it is good for 2-3 persons. Not bad after all.
|Yangchow Fried Rice - Php140.00|
I would like to highlight what I personally ordered and this is the star of the night. It is the U.S. Angus Steak that is All-You-Can-Eat for Php699.00. I know it is a bit expensive but Papa would really want me to try it. He tried it before and he wanted to know my opinion about it.
I asked for a medium rare steak and the taste is really really good. The meat is tender and juicy and you can really taste its smoky and savory flavor. The serving includes vegetables, prawn bisque soup, rice and freshly baked ciabattini.
|U.S. Angus Steak (All-You-Can-Eat) - Php699.00|
|Prawn Bisque Soup|
|Freshly Baked Ciabattini|
|Cabernet Sauvignon - Php95.00/glass|
Before we ended our sumptuous dinner, we tried some of their desserts. We were even planning to try everything but I guess our stomachs could not take it anymore.
|Knickerbocker - Php95.00|
|Warm Brownie Cup ala Mode - Php95.00|
|Black Sambo - Php60.00|
Before we left, we took a photo as an evidence of how we consumed everything smoothly. LoL! Anyway, thank you so much Pa for the treat and I'm sure Mama was so happy that night as well as our tummies.
Our experience at Tonino's Resto and Wine Bar was extraordinary. From the staff and crew, the ambiance and the food, it was superb and excellent. We weren't wrong in trying out this place. This is something that I will visit everytime that I will be in Dipolog City. This is a must-try establishment and they deserve a two thumbs up!
