This is our "go to" place for lunch every time we are in Iloilo. The food is consistently good and good value for the price. Try their puso ng saging kilawin, fabulous. The original place at the back of Plazuela de Iloilo is always full that they have a second location at the front. Their inihaw na managat is also great.

Upon arrival in iloilo, we went to Ponsyon to have dinner, it has a rustic ambiance and i might say, its fully packed :) service was fast and good, staffs are so nice.. and yes, the food was really good, i mean, sumptious!!! We took a grilled tuna and it was fresh! Sizzling meat crab and the chicken was delicious. Buko shake is refreshing... ;) presentation was good... the restaurant is a must try once you visit iloilo...

This restaurant is located in the Plaza virtually next door to SM City.

I must say the food we had here and service was one of best on our lengthy vacation so far.

The venue was upmarket and had the service to match by our male server. Patient and he provided a good explanation of the dishes as the menu was in Illongo which neither of us could understand.

The most outstanding dish was the lightly battered prawns in a delicious sauce. Our waiter brought out several trays of various sized fresh prawns so that we could choose the desired size to be cooked.

My least favourite dish was the crab fat fried rice which was far to overpowering.

Other dishes tried were lato salad ( grape seaweed) mango and eggplant salad, Chicken inasal (grilled) and open lumpia.
