Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food is still good, but the restaurant was too hot even at sun set. Normally there is an ocean breeze but not that day. Otherwise location is beautiful. Our two orders of sizzling crab were forgotten during dinner, we took the orders to go.

Food was mediocre at best but the worst is the dirty non working bathroom with no soap to wash your hands and non flushing toilet! So embarrassing to present the kind of service to customers!

I noticed, lunch time is crowded in spite of pandemic. Food is so delicious and the price is reasonable. Workers were so nice. This place is clean. The most thing I like most, while enjoying eating you could feel the sea breeze and you could...see from the distant the Guimaras Island the reflects on aqua sea water. Highly recommend this restaurant by Villa Beach.More

This restaurant is a local favorite, but I do not like that all their food is terribly overcooked. Standard practice is to overcook the food, leave it on the counter, and serve it room temperature... but that is Filipino cooking, so the locals like it....The food is mediocre, the service is terribly slow. *The good - The ambience is great, and it has a nice view of the (mediocre) beach. It is a good place to hang out, enjoy the view, and have a few drinks. I would just rather eat somewhere else.More

The habit of over-cooking the flavour and nutrition out of their menu items = bad news! I'm glad to see that others felt the same because, no matter how ignorant people rate it, it's to be tested against world-wide seafood places. And this one is...a stinker. The deep-friend chicken totally dried out and tasteless. Salty disgusting 'soup.' Steamed kangkong that was so tough and chewy, so tasteless, tooth-sticker crap. The other dishes are just as dreadful, and look horrid as well. Hard to find a good seafood resto in the city area: at least one poisoned us; another was oily and tasteless; another with torn old menus; another thick sticky sauces that get all over the place and doesn't adequately hide the horrible overcooked mess that it was. Prices vary among the most 'famous,' but as a group best steer yourself up to Roxas City to their seaside villa area, and order really really pleasant seafood, from the fish to the angel wings to the.... Skip this mess!More

We had a great lunch at Breakthrough yesterday together with friends and family. The sisig and the Dinuguan were the best that we ate during our stay in Iloilo and the fish dishes were enjoyed by everyone at our table. I should also mention that...the lechon was great. A very pleasant front of house team looked after our every need and we truly relaxed as we looked out to the sea across the very clean beach in front of the restaurant. We booked in advance given it was the last day of the Dinagyang Festival and the restaurant was justifiably packed by the time we left. Highly recommended!More
