Sunday is always the perfect day for a family date. We came all the way from the Northern most part of iloilo - Carles, and decided to have our lunch at Tatoy's since my parents were once considered the restaurant as their Dating Place during their bf and gf stage(kilig face)! We ordered a lot, like really a lot since... More

And we were so happy with the food - we ordered plates and plates of their fresh, shucked oysters and dipped it in vinegar with siling labuyo and kalamansi and toyo, their chicken inasal (available in 2...

The place was ok, but not really well maintained. The food should be the star of the show but this is where it became up and down. As suggest by others, i also liked their kinilaw which was spicy yet sweet, the steamed talaba, and the talaba with cheese. The liempo was exceptional especially when it is newly cooked and... More

I went here tonight for dinner craving some authentic Filipino fair. I was totally not disappointed. Food was great and plentiful, the price was very reasonable for how much was ordered. If you are a foreigner like me be advised that this is an open air establishment, there's no air con but there is ceiling fans so it is bearable.... More

Tatoy's has been around for some time and it is popular with both tourists and locals. The seafood is ok, but what really sets this place apart for me is the freshly cooked, juicy and flavorful grilled native chicken.

Best fish kinilaw in Iloilo City. Also has very tasty native chicken dishes. Place is in a heavy traffic area though./
