Indulge in SUTUKIL and More with Cebu City’s First Tuna-focused Restaurant

If there is one thing Cebuanos love other than lechon, it’s sugba, tuwa, and kilaw or SUTUKIL. Through the years, many Sinugba spots in Cebu have been in, but the originals are stationed near SM City Cebu. However, a new name wants to earn a spot in the game of SUTUKIL in Sugbo — the VillaTuna. 

VillaTuna promises its customers fresh and local ingredients every day. But that’s not all; they are by far the only restaurant in Cebu City that offers fully tuna and fish dishes: No pork, no beef, and no other meats, just fish. 

But this is where it gets interesting, they have not one, not two, but more than 20 different tuna and fish dishes that are worth trying. 

Tuna Tinola, Grilled Tuna Panga, Tuna Tapa and More

Who would expect that tuna could be cooked in more ways than one? At VillaTuna, they take pride in their best-selling Tuna Tinola. They even sold 250,000 orders of tinola in all their branches. Moreover, they are among the few restaurants still offering tinola kalamunggay. 

A spoonful of the umami flavor of the tinola and the soft tuna fish definitely makes a hearty meal. Other tuna dishes that VillaTuna offers are tuna tapa, tuna sisig, tuna pakfry, and tuna kinilaw.

“Welcome Home!” is VillaTuna’s greeting because every dish at the restaurant is a nostalgic nudge to home-cooked meals.

Modern-native Interior, Al-fresco Dining, and Spacious Parking Space

Gone are the days when you must stress out about where to park. At VillaTuna, the parking space is absolutely spacious and safe. 

Moreover, VillaTuna prides itself on its Modern-native Interior with accents and accessories from Mindanao. The open space provides customers with al-fresco dining and fresh air. 

Aside from the great interior, VillaTuna also values cleanliness and order. From the kitchen to the restrooms, everything is spick and span.

VillaTuna Franchise

Dreaming of your own SUTUKIL restaurant? Good news! VillaTuna is open for franchise. They now have franchisees who are loyal customers and want to spread the greatness of VillaTuna even further.

From Villa Tuna Republika to VillaTuna

VillaTuna started as VillaTuna Republika in 2017 and was established in Butuan City at the Villa Kananga branch. They started to rebrand and soon became VillaTuna, which means “Home of Tuna Dishes.”

And now, they are here in the Queen City of the South with a mission to provide healthier alternatives for Cebuanos. But that’s not all! VillaTuna also has a branch in Liloan for those who want to dine and enjoy all-tuna goodness. 

VillaTuna is here to satisfy your ‘lutong bahay’ cravings with healthier food options for you and your family. It is the perfect place to bring your parents who, for sure, love the “inato” style of eating. What are you waiting for? Mangaon ta sa VillaTuna!
