Breakthrough is only 20 mins away from Mandurriao area. It has a big parking space perfect for gatherings. They have a wide variety of seafood at an affordable price. Try their Aligue Rice, Pantat(catfish) and Oysters (baked/steamed).

A staff member told me to sit anywhere so I found a table and sat down. The waitress told me that table was reserved and I would have... More

It's my favorite restaurant in Iloilo. Its a must for the family to dine at least every month. We usually have grilled blue marlin and managat. Lechon in most of the time is really good. Crabmeat and steamed oysters are always in the menu. Ambiance is really cool and staff are ok.

We ordered boiled oysters, backed scallops with cheese and their roasted native chicken. We left our plates completely empty, with happy tummies, and satisfied smiles on our faces!

Make a leisurely lunch with good seafood choices and dishes while enjoying the fresh breeze from the ocean. It does get really windy on some days, though. Try the fresh seafood and the sizzling crab.
