Reviewed July 10, 2013

I think this is the best sutukil resto in the area. They have many choices of fish. They have limited shellfishes and their crabs are all male, no female!

Dear Guest,


Thank you for visiting our establishment. All our seafoods, specially crustaceans are dependent on the seasons' availability. Hopefully, we can make it up to you next time :D

We hope to see you again in your future travels.


Mabuhay!

“Overly Priced Seafood”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

As the saying goes. iloilo is not complete without visiting Tatoys. For cebu its not complete without visiting Sutukil. Well the food is nice but the sellers are not, they tend to make money out of you and everything is overly priced specially if you are a foreigner. Lucky i know how to market here in manila so i expect the price to be cheaper since im already near the source. A kilo of tiger prawn or sugpo was 1st offered for P800 per kg till i was able to haggle for 450. But honestly its 400 here at farmers market. Get the picture?? Cooking fee is always 50% of the raw seafood. So anyway the work sutukil means Sugba Tu?? And Kilawin. It was a good experience but its way over the budget specially if u just want to experience the local cooking with a local ambiance. This is what i paid for Crabs 600 per kilo. Prawn 450 per kilo. Tilapia 1 pc big tilapia is 350. Lastly the salad is 200 and rice good for 2 is 120 plus coke litro of 85. This is after all the haggling but the original price stated on their display is 100% higher than this. No wonder very few people come back.

Dear Guest,


I'm sorry for your unfortunate experience. The Establishment is now under new management since May of 2013 with fair and fixed pricing for both Tourist and Locals.

However, I would like to point out that there are establishments within the area that are using our name. Some pictures that are being posted on the internet using our name are actually not our restaurant. The prices that you mentioned are indeed high, and is against our pricing protocol. Lastly, we do not sell Tilapya.

We strive to improve our guests' experience, Please contact us at mannastk@gmail.com.

Hope to see you on your next visit.

Mabuhay!

“Great seafood dishes”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Great restaurant with a good price for eating seafoods, lots of choices and the ambience is great, you can choose air-conditioned or open air space inside the restaurant. Try the "saang" seafood, only 10 pesos per piece.

“Great food, affordable price”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The suggestion was from the car service from Crimson Resort, the food was great, affordable price, but average service. I would prefer the server be more attentive to your needs, the language barrier maybe the reason, otherwise I recommend it..

“Not something to rave about”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Although seafoods were fresh, the way they cooked it was not so great. So-so.

Mangoes and watermelon bought outside the resto were so sweet, juicy and cheap!
Good thing they allowed us to eat the fruits inside.

Since it's near the Lapu-Lapu Shrine, after lunch, we took pictures in the shrine.
