Hands down, this is the place which serves the best grilled chicken in Iloilo, and perhaps, the whole country. The chicken served in this restaurant is a must eat for any tourist visiting Iloilo. It is not the usual poultry variety but the native stock called "bisaya" which is first marinated in a solution containing vinegar, achuete, lemongrass, among others.... More

I brought my cousins from Manila and from the States to have lunch here last week. We were quite late for lunch as we came back from out of town tour. However, the staff were fast to recommend and get our orders. The air conditioned pavilion was perfect as it was humid outside. We ordered native chicken grilled, lechon kawali,... More

Food are display on their counter however there are no prices indicated on the food. You need to ask for the price and the lady who took our order did not properly assist us. After ordering, the food arrived quickly but disappointed on their sinigang which was not worth the price. The talaba is great but the baked oyster has... More

I thought seafoods are created equal, but not with how Tatoy's prepare its own. The foods are all fresh, of high quality, and taste delicious! The grilled managat fish is heavenly! And the kinilaw na tangigue is simply mouth-watering good, u can almost finish up everything in it. I highly recommend a visit to Tatoy's when in Iloilo City, one... More

Was taken to this restaurant by a local. Good selection of local foods. We ordered several dishes to include seafood and meat. Crispy lechon was good, as was the fish - divided in two - half barbecued and half put into soup. A native chicken was very flavourful. The restaurant was almost full and the food clearly very flavoursome. Spent... More

are you craving for the best baked talaba in Iloilo? As a true-blooded Ilonggo, I assure you that their baked talaba is the best I have indulged so far. Fresh as it should be, the creamy and cheesy flavor got me right there. Will always love their food!!! xx
