Because of high demand for their siopao, my experience is that Roberto's service, cleanliness and sanitary practices, and even the way they make their siopao has suffered. The small restaurant is always full and a line of people always extends outside the store waiting to buy siopao. Because of this, Roberto's has probably taken many compromises and short cuts in...

Have a taste of Iloilo. When in Iloilo, most of the items in your to do list is about food. And you're nuts if Roberto's siopao is not ranked highly on your list. Though you have to be partient cos this is always a busy restaurant. Place might also be too noisy and cramped for your style. But I'd say,... More

You're not supposed to leave Iloilo City when you haven't had their Queen siopao. This is the passport to a happy heart. With just under P100, you can now enjoy this fully loaded siopao. It's filled with pork stuffings, bacon, ham, sausages and eggs.

Busy and always bustling with hungry clientele, Roberto's has become an Ilonggo institution. Located in the busy downtown area, they serve classic favorites like meatballs and lumpia shanghai with rice at affordable prices. Their siopaos are legendary and are available in different flavors. Don't miss them when you come visit Iloilo.

In roberto's you'll find the most delicious siopao in the philippines. Their food are also affordable and plentiful. You can have a great family bonding here. The only issue i have is their customer service. Some of their waiters are arrogant and disrespectful to the elderly. They work with no care for their customers

That siopao was amazing and delicious. You must try the QUEEN siopao. However the place aint that good. Small crowdy and needs a little more clean. It may be best if they have to redecorate or expand it. It kinda looks old. However the siopao is the one your after. Just get one and get out.

Unlike others, i'm not a siopao fan. But I really like their cheese burger. And apparently the whole family always order the cheese burger! Usually there's a line build up, don't be discouraged as service is fast (for take out at least, since we never dine at Roberto's). The owner is the one manning the counter and he (?) is... More

It's been my favorite restaurant since college and up to now after 20 yrs, the siopao is still the best siopao in town. I also love their lumpiang shanghai, meatballs on stick and bihon guisado. Try also their burger and at a minimal cost, it is so yummy!

Last year, we stopped by Roberto's and their Siopao was really good. A few months ago, we stopped by again on our trip to Iloilo but I think the quality has gone down. I don't know if I'm going back there.
