As suggested by our server we got managat (mangrove jack) wherein we had the head part as soup and the lower part grilled, grilled cat fish, grilled bangus belly, grilled squid with filling and fish kinilaw. We had fresh coconut juice and buko halohalo for dessert. Everything... More

Bad rating for exorbitant prices! Sourcing prime seafood hereabouts for quality or freshness are best practices in resto business but being readily available around these islands and if one knows local wet market costs you'll see the over the top charges they pass to customers. They bill a thousand for a kilo of crabs and the additional cooking charges applied... More

Food is delicious and we can't believe we paid only about P3,200 for 5 pax, for order of 5-6 viands and soda/beer.

A restaurant well known for its fresh seafood dishes, Breakthrough is located along the infamous villa beach of iloilo. This beach used to be a family destination but because illegal settlers filled the the shore area along the road, the beach is no longer reachable. Floating debris from the houses' toilets abound as the residents make the beach their septic... More

Fresh seafoods and good native food. The place is usually packed every night specially on weekends. They serve 'live' seafoods and great selection of native Filipino food. Buy lately, the taste isn't the same and I suspect they put way too much MSG that eating there will make you thirsty. But overall, a place not to miss when in Iloilo.

Three items I always order: baked scallops, talaba (oysters) and aligue rice. These are my favorite food there. Food is delicious and price just right. We come here for the seafood but they also have meat items like native chicken, grilled pork and lechon. Most of the area is non-aircon but they do have a small aircon room. They accept... More

My family and I had lunch at Breakthrough last Sunday. It was a nice place to eat with an overlooking view of the beach. You get to choose live seafood for your meal and they will cook it for you. The food were delicious with a thumbs up. 👍🏻
