One of the best! The lechon, chicken, kinilaw, scallops etc were delicious. Love the sarsa of the lechon too!

Went back to Iloilo after 4 years! But since it was just overnight for work, I had to visit the must-eat places. One of which is Tatoy's Manokan and Seafood.

The place wasn't air-conditioned but was well-ventilated anyway with its huge screen-covered windows and fans scattered all over the restaurant.

Of course, we had the chicken and lots of seafood. Everything was good - fresh and really satisfied our hunger! And definitely bigger in size than the seafood here in Manila. Best thing is - all of these cost only P1800! (They accept credit cards, by the way)

I ate at their branch near Iloilo International Airport this December and I fell in love with their roasted chicken dish. So yummy!

Their chicken inasal is simply the best!!!! I also loved the view: SEASIDE!!!!!! It's my ideal mealtime with my family and friends. This was before OFY's final performance in Iloilo at Nelly Garden 978697869786

We automatically visit this place whenever we go to Iloilo. I'm definitely a big fan! People are commenting on the chicken but lol just give my scallops and oysters then I'm okay.128514

Something seems to have changed with their oysters. Did they use milk together with that cheese topping??? It's delicious but I didn't like it so much just because of preference hehe 128517 I liked it better back in 2014 when it was purely just cheese and garlic. The scallops were yummy and slightly oily because of the butter. I'd rather get my fill of scallops at Roxas City 128514 The rest of the food we ordered were delicious according to my family even if I didn't try it. Safe to say that everything is delicious!

I really love this place most especially the huts in front of the beach. We finally got to eat at that part and it's a nice place to sit down if you've got a big party with you. We got our own sinks to wash hands and ultimately, a place to ourselves. We went on a weekday so Tatoy's was like a zombieland in its self which made it heaven for me because seriously... Wouldn't you like to have your favorite place all to yourself?

When in Iloilo, try Tatoy's! 128077128513

You haven't been to Iloilo if you haven't eaten at Tatoy's. Famous for its native chicken.

I only make food collages when I am blown away and let me tell you, Tatoy's food is literally the best Filipino food you will ever eat! THE BEST!!

They have that branch by Villa beach and a newer branch right outside the airport (I go when I arrive and before I leave Iloilo, haha). I've eaten in both many times over.

I cannot even BEGIN to explain how delicious the food is here. Everything I tried is mind-blowing. The inasal, the baked oysters, the grilled fish belly (say "buy-on" when you order to get the special belly!), the lechon, the paksiw na lechon, the kilawin, the grilled pusit, etc. etc. Holy cow. Best ever. You seriously NEED to eat here if you ever go to Iloilo. Fun fact: President Erap ONLY eats here whenever he goes to Iloilo, and we all know that he likes his food! Lol.

This is the ONLY place wherein I don't care that the resto looks like shambles. Usually I put more weight on ambience than food but I gladly throw that rule away because of the glorious dishes here. You sit on a thin wooden bench. Your plate is milanoware. You can bend your metal spoon with one hand. Really low end stuff lol. It's a provincial turo-turo looking carinderia (albeit a big one). Dogs may or may not be sleeping under the tables. Ha! Super simple is an understatement!

But wow, the food. Simple food but blessed by the Gods. I don't know how they cook it so good. It's mostly just grilled stuff, so how on earth?! Is it the oil they use? Is it a secret marinade? Is it because the local ingredients are fresher? Is it an anting-anting?

Not to mention everything in Tatoy's is also SUPER cheap! What a restaurant! People in Iloilo live like kings!! I love you, Tatoy's! You and me FOREVER!!

Famous restaurant here in Iloilo! They say that if you haven't tried Tatoy's, you've never been to Iloilo! Thankful I tried it out. Traditional Chicken was good, baked oysters too. I like it. It's simple and it tasted good!

They have introduced the resort complex by building a couple of infinity swimming pools in the back. A bit pricey for Iloilo with the PHP200 pool fee plus an additional PHP50 if you want to use the jacuzzi. The food prices seem to have increased as well. A pricey indulgence now.

Wow! The place was huuuuge! But it's still hard to find seats. Their talaba (oysters) weren't that good but i recommend their fish sinigang! So delicious. I also recommend their crispy pata and lechon. Of course, you shall not leave without tasting their lechon manok :)

Tatoy's started with a very small restaurant. But through the years and word of mouth, Tatoy's becomes the most sought-after restaurant in the city. They offer mainly Filipino dishes but I particularly loved their native lechon manok. It was so delish I finished the whole chicken all by myself. Don't be shocked. The size of the chicken is not the typical size you see in the supermarket. It's relatively small to maintain the tenderness of the meat. It's part of the "pamahiin" or luck din daw. Aside from the lechon, I also liked their oysters. Overall, worth every penny!

We sat outside in our own private cottage, with the sea as our view and wind blowing in our face!

I recommend the talaba and their signature chicken! :)

Stuff we ordered:

Red snapper in batuan soup - sarap! Sinigang flavor without tamarind
Specialty chicken with sampaloc leaves - I liked Aida's better but this one is flavorful too
Buko juice - somehow there's more juice in the coconuts of Iloilo. I asked the waiter if they added juice in the shells but they didn't
Baked clams - I think these were only 135 Php only for 8-10 pcs. We should have ordered more

Everything is fresh! Minimum two cups of rice due to the flavorful viands. I will miss Visayas.

Spent 280php each; we were 8 people

Tatoy's manukan never fails me. They have the best dinuguan, lechon baboy and native lechon manok in Iloilo. Can't wait to eat in this resto again.
