Bistro Ocean City, SM Southpoint, Iloilo City

Through the years, our family has had countless celebratory dinners at Ocean City. Their General Luna Branch is a favorite for our kin’s birthdays, graduation parties, and anniversaries. Since its opening in 1992, it expanded into stalls and two more branches, one of which recently opened last November 11 – Bistro Ocean City at SM Southpoint.

We’ve always loved the Chinese and the Filipino bestsellers at the Ocean City General Luna Branch. Those who are on the go are also fond of the affordable meal combos that Ocean City offers in mall food courts all over the city. To cater to a different crowd, the owners reinvented their menu as they opened their Ayala Technohub Branch in 2011. The Ayala Technohub and the SM Southpoint Branches share the same menu which offers Western dishes and desserts.

Unlike their main branch that has partitions for big parties, Bistro Ocean City features light, airy, and open interiors that is definitely relaxing. Its location also offers a great view of SM Southpoint’s open area.
