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

Grew up with Tatoy's cooking - come back for their native lechon manok as the bestseller. Still and has remained a famy favourite seaside and seafood place. Staff are helpful, prices afforable. See you again next year on our return!

Been here several times before and its very unfortunate that our experience this time was not worth it. Food quality wise, its ok.. service was VERY POOR. Staff were tired and not really accommodating. Ambiance was supposed to be good but too many flies.

If you crave for seafood, visit Tatoy's in Iloilo. Good food, beach ambiance good but restaurant ambiance needs improvement!

We enjoyed the oysters in garlic butter and cheese, shrimp camaron, nylon shell soup (with ginger and chilies), plus lechon. The mango shakes (green and ripe) paired perfectly with all the food. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Iloilo. (This is our second visit)

What started out as a small stall along Villa Beach is now a must visit for any traveler. Trip Advisor has a very old sticker of approval. Locals used to flock the beach when it was less crowded. Tatoy's still has some beach front cottages but itnis the food that people come back to. among the musts is their free... More
