Jean Electra Sagario-Aso'23:07 06/25/23
Fast food service, just the right amount of food for its price, the staff who attended to our order was very accommodating and very efficient.But I wish the guards and door staffs would be gracious upon guests' entry (welcome or be able to show to a table) and exits the restaurant (haven't received a thank you nor words saying come visit us again)

Yhna esteffani rose Silvino15:43 05/16/23
It's 4 stars because it's kinda pricey nonetheless the food is great. Somehow it taste the same in my hometown porridge but it's less pricey.

B Jaleen07:14 04/15/23
I love arroz caldo with tokwa't baboy. Crab omelette is great too. Staff is friendly and attentive.

Elaine De Los Santos13:37 02/22/23
Merienda at Dencia’s is a must when in Davao City. Their arroz caldo was hearty and tasty because of the flavor from the native chicken. Their tokwa’t baboy (tofu and pork) was cooked perfectly. It had good lean and fat pork ratio and the sauce was well-balanced (sour-umami flavor profile). The durian shake was so thick that they provided spoon instead of straw. Service was fast. Staff were kind and attentive.

Christina09:31 11/29/22
A must eat place for me whenever I'm in Davao. Lugaw, tokwa't baboy and fresh lumpia same as I always remember since childhood ❤️

Drake Hogestyn15:00 08/28/22
Good food but quite expensive. One cup (serving) of plain rice is P60! Not even a good quality rice.

maria angeles Teodosio and Rhyz and renzo10:14 08/02/22
All time fav for the Best Goto lugaw in Davao City .. after our morning walk at Peoples Park Dencias is just Nearby, it's really a Hearty Warm meal.❤️ Can get enough with this Tokwat baboy and Goto lugaw the best!!!!

Johnnie Victor Ferrer13:19 11/29/21
One of our classic and sentimental favorites when in Davao City.Dencia's is a prominent brand in the culinary map of Davao City. It has made an indelible impression with its signature lugaw, goto, and tokwa't baboy. Aside from these bestsellers, the restaurant is also famous for its other offerings.It is not easy getting a parking spot when you visit Dencia's. It is in the busy area beside Gaisano Ilustre and a parking area for its customers has not been considered. So getting a slot is really a matter of luck.Of course, despite this scenario, followers still flock to the resto for its famous food. They are open early in the morning for breakfast until evening. It is our first time to be back there after the pandemic locked down the city.I wish, tho that they serve their brewed coffee really hot.

Michelle Cabildo23:41 07/11/23
They have a separate takeout counter and waiting room, which was great. The cooking time was a bit long but it was fine because we ordered two of the big set meals. The set meals are large and we (a couple) shared one for lunch and another for dinner.

Jocelyn Comia11:14 07/07/23
Of course the original Davao Famous is one of the aged restaurant here in Davao. Nothing's change all of their dishes is very lamii. Very neat and clean but no parking. You have to look where you can park but the food is delicious.

Teodoro R. Llanes Ii05:02 02/26/23
Waited more than an hour for the food. Waitress are not accomodating. They'd take more people and orders in than they can handle resulting to delay in customer's order.

Elaine De Los Santos02:39 02/16/23
I used to eat at this place and I remember the food being really good. But I was a bit disappointed that although the physical store has been improved, the food taste sadly has not been maintained. The lechon kawali was not the usual crispy popping skin, melty fat, and tender meat. It looked and tasted like ordinary fried pork. The pork and shrimp lomi was not the usual eggy and thick. The service was sooo slow and the bill had to be corrected because it included a cancelled item. My rating is three stars only because the place is still nostalgic.

Jubert Tarre05:41 08/29/22
The food was great... The lomi was superb and the vegetables they used were very fresh... The soup was good as well...

Ann Canlas22:53 01/05/22
Delicious foods, service is good and the staff is nice.

Charles Leocadio05:05 12/04/17
Good chinese restaurant within the city. Food is excellent in taste and presentation. Price is above average but worth it. Waited too long for our orders (almost an hour).

Lovely restaurant, excellent service, scrumptious food, tad expensive but worth every centavo! We had Steak and Lamb Shank ... best we've ever had in Davao! 😋

Angela Corselius09:47 04/22/23
I had a great dining experience here. The steak was absolutely delicious. Their staff are fantastic. the ambience is very classy.

Cherryfelle Espuerta Galvez04:37 03/03/23
My husband and I had lunch here. The place was cool and elegant. The food tastes great as well. We love it. Would love to go back here with the family.

Betchai11:05 12/08/22
The food is good. Do I want to eat here again after the experience? Nah... I maybe will go back because of the fried cauliflower because it is truly delicious, but the rest of its food? Maybe for once. It is not due to its price but it does not match our expectations.

Dick Adrich Dawal00:33 07/19/22
We haven't really tried the restaurant but we had free breakfast from here through their hotel. And just by the free breakfast we had, I can say that this restaurant is probably worth every penny you'll spend. The photos are probably off the menu. You might also want to consider trying their hotel so you can try these.

Aldous Talavero05:21 04/12/22
Good food and great service. An overall fantastic dining experience. Serving portions are enough for 2 people. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive to your needs. Pleace is clean, well-lit, and instagrammable. Good food and service come in a price as well. Steak is a must-try. Devoured it immediately and forgot to take photos.Food: 4/5Serving: 5/5Serving time: 20 minutesService: 5/5Ambience: 5/5Price: 1,000+/head

Gee Dee (About My Philippine Life)13:40 04/08/22
Lots of people say it's pricey, however the food is good.. great service.. meal for 1 was $70 US which is on par with US prices.. I will go back when I return to Davao.. my only complaint was the AC was blowing on my table which made my food cool faster than normal..

Mike Capinpuyan05:32 03/22/22
Awesome dining experience.The seafood risotto was spot on.The rib eye steak was cooked to the right doneness- couldve been perfect with a tad more salt and compound butter.The seafood carbonara was creamy and you can surely taste the truffle oil.Okay ill def come back!

I ate here before. But the date we celebrated our 3rd year anniversary with my partner was the best ever. The food is so good. Like you will never be disappointed going here. If you like cozy places and not so crowded for you to dine with your partner or family, I suggest you dine here.

Peter Crowhurst14:03 03/16/22
Had dinner here last night. Arrived at around 6pm on a Tuesday night. One of the first customers there so got a parking space inside. But please note there are only a few parking spaces. So how was the place and food. The place was very nice with a lot of Dutch items dotted around the restaurant which also added to the great look of the place. The food menu was large.. we did phone ahead and ask what was on or off the menu. On that night most of the dishes were available so we all were able to get what we ordered off the menu. The steaks where very good.. as was the rest of the food. Maybe the salmon was a little over cooked.. so best to ask the chef to cook light if you prefer it that way. I did order bitterballen.. and... Well was a posh version of the Dutch cheap snack we all so love:).. they were filled with very tender beef.. lovely. They also have an extensive desert menu.. the Dutch apple pie was very good. The service was first rate with all the staff very accommodating. Thanks for a lovely dinner. Our Norwegian client said it was the best food he had been to in Davao.... For this type of food of course!!!

Omar Y12:48 02/13/22
The food was not bad; however, half of their menu was not available, the restaurant looks good, but parking it is not so easy. The area is congested. However, we found someone who directed us to their own small private parking. After we were finished with our dinner, we had a rough time to get out; we had to inconvenience the customer who was parked behind us to let us out. When it comes to prices, I let you be the judge. Since I have posted their entire menu, I must point out that the bathroom did not have hand soap or napkins other than that is an average place. With a fancy name.

Miles Leighreeven13:29 01/29/22
I have to say that this restaurant is one of the few (in Davao City) that serves legit steak.We don't have any problem with parking nor overcrowding inside since we dined around 3pm to make sure that we will enjoy the place. And alas! We were the only customer ahahahaThe interior was cozy and the staff were ready friendly and nice. Excellent service since we were the only diners during that time.Food was good. The steak was great. Legit.Need to try other menu.

Charles Dy09:40 06/18/23
Wow! Just wow! Their kalderobo is amazing! It tastes like our serkele in Bulacan but much more refined. Their version of mixed seafood is also a must try! One of the best restaurants in Davao!

John de Veyra23:25 04/22/23
The food is delicious. It's a bit pricey, but it's worth it. Good atmosphere and good service.

Andrew dela Serna06:32 02/21/23
Had lunch here with family after the longest time. I loved their Crispy Beef Tadyang, Molo Soup and Longganisa Pasta. Their Boneless Crispy Pata was a bit so-so as the skin was rubbery rather than crispy. Their service was friendly and professional!

Mia Lamosa11:25 11/05/22
Most tender Baby Back Ribs we've had. Fresh lumpia comes in a huge serving and the seafood mix has fresh ingredients. There is long wait time for the food but the quality more than makes up for it

SY T03:11 11/05/22
The place looks amazing on the inside. It's very ideal for a date, or if youre entertaining business partners. They also have a private function area that you can reserve at the back if you want it to be a private function with your family and friends.As for their staff, they weren't really friendly and accomodating even though it was still early in the morning and there weren't a lot of customers inside the restaurant.I only tried one dish so far and it's their chicken and pancakes breakfast option. There wasn't a lot of meat on the chicken, it only appeared large due to the breading which was a bit disappointing. As for the pancakes, it tasted like your regular pancakes that you could make at home. I'm going to try other dishes in their menu so stay tuned for that.

Jay Reyno07:00 08/13/22
They put a different spin on the traditional Filipino dishes. Go here if you're into that. Not my thing. A little pricey. Great atmosphere, though.

Darenn Rodriguez13:57 05/28/22
Lives up to its name, one of the best places for Filipino comfort food. I love their tuna kinilaw because its presentation resembles like that of Japanese sashimi. Their crispy pata kare kare is also to die for. Will definitely be back here

Mike Gabriel Enanoria12:56 01/20/22
Had our family dinner last time here. Very great experience and of course the foods are top-tier. And, my gratitude to my uncle's fam for the treat.

Never a disappointment going here. Food and atmosphere is always festive. Place is clean. Our favorite is the roast beef, mak sushi and salmon sashimi. The lengua too is masarap.

Maria Go08:57 07/31/23
one of the luxury buffet food places here in metro davao but im not sure if its still worth the price. they dont refill food fast and the taste was mediocre. i have dined a couple of times in the span of years and their menu was mostly the same. no major changes 🥲 but they do serve wide choices though.and would highly suggest to book ahead of time. you can easily book through their website.

Jonas Julius Abendan12:57 07/27/23
Lots of choices (food) to choose. Serving for beef and salmon is limited per approach. Just come back for more. The singing and dancing vibe of the crew is very entertaining. It creates a fiesta atmosphere with asian and western cuisines.

Zen M12:36 07/26/23
Food was very good. Fewer selctions now than before.Some of the food served to me were already cold. (Not actual cold dishes)Service was ok. Slow refills. A couple of snobbish crew or they just don't like being asked. Their entertainment was fun though.Tables for 2s are too close to each other.A huge room for improvement on bookings and waiting time for entry.

Knizza Atalc05:45 07/18/23

Annielyn ladao05:57 04/16/23
Table 311AFirstly, the restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes, which is great for those who like to explore different types of cuisine. The restaurant's ambiance is welcoming and spacious, which creates a comfortable environment for diners.However, based on your feedback, it seems that the location of your table was not ideal as it was near the cooking area and the temperature was hot. This could be something that the restaurant could address by making sure that diners are seated in more comfortable areas.In terms of the food, it's unfortunate that the beef steak was not to your liking as it was too hard. This could be something that the restaurant could improve by making sure that the beef steak is cooked properly and is tender.Overall, while there were some areas for improvement, Vikings Buffet Lunch still offers a good selection of dishes, a comfortable ambiance, and a welcoming atmosphere for diners. It's important to note that everyone's dining experience can be subjective and may vary, so it's always good to provide feedback to the restaurant to help them improve.

Hanzel Dawn Yepes13:20 03/20/23
Food was okay. Looove the cheeses, if only the roast beef wasn't too tough it would have been great.I didn't like most of the desserts, except for the chocolate mousse.

SY T13:36 03/02/23
From what I remember 5 years ago, they had more food options to choose from compared to the present which is a bit disappointing.In terms of the food, it was okay. When i went around to check what food they offered, there were some empty plates which they did not refill. It was only around 7pm yet they could not keep up with the demand of the customer consumption. As for the food, it was nothing too special in my opinion although I did enjoy one piece of cuisine which was the beef as the meat was tender.I must say, I did enjoy their dancing waiters. They were quite energetic and entertaining.

hanzios13:48 11/07/22
viking's never disappoints. we come here often and i always leave the restaurant full and satisfied. there is a wide variety of cuisines to choose from; you will never run out of options. my favorite dish is the roast beef (medium rare) with mushroom sauce.

Rose Faith Embajador08:57 09/18/22
I love this place. You can choose from a wide variety of foods from different places. They also have occasional promos like dining in for free on your birthday with 1 full paying adult or dining in for free on your birth month with 3 full paying adults. The foods are delicious. However, it's a bit pricey for a single lunch or dinner to dine in here but I think it's fun to roam around and choose the food you want to add to your meal.

Rodelyn Grace Pepana12:04 07/06/22
A little expensive but all varieties of food are there (well mostly). Food is extremely tasty, I loved it. I think you just need to arrive early to be able to enjoy.

Food was good, except it’s a bit greasy.We liked the Chimichurri chicken & Angus beef belly.I wouldn’t recommend their desserts. Cheesecake tasted like they put milk as extender.

Lianne08:23 06/17/23
Ordered the seafood risotto and 48-hour sous vide wagyu brisket. Exquisite but not phenomenal.Short bathroom review: Fully equipped single bathroom with a urinal. Not sure how I feel about it having an AC though 🤔

Lady Enchantress Garden and Travel14:48 03/21/23
Nice place easy to locate. My bad I should have ordered my aged steak medium rare, I think I kind of ruined it. Chef Patrick and the team was nice and very accomodating. Despite me.looking like a total mess straight from airport to fat cow lunch. Photos attached, recommended.If there is a brie, burrata or any cheese based appetizer and roasted garlic🧄 as a side or as part of the menu.. That will be total perfect expedience. Kudos! Hope this business succeed.

HarryFatty08:54 03/09/23
Not your usual restaurant. Mid classes should invest to experience the taste of their food. We did not leave disappointed. The food portion is good, and the taste is superb! The place is clean, including their CR.

Frances Jillian14:43 11/26/22
Food was delicious! We ordered angus beef, black truffle pasta, kawali salad and chicken parmigiano. Service was great as well as the staff were attentive to our needs. Overall a great dining experience 🙂

Omar Y05:51 08/15/22
Nice small restaurant with good ambiance and decor, parking are available right in front of the restaurant. They have got an adjacent room for a big group or parties. This is a must visit restaurant if you are visiting Davao or are a local who wants to have a fantastic meal with friends or family this is the place. The food is simply divine, by far, in my judgement this is one of the best restaurant in Davao.

Erooon08:23 01/21/22
Chunky beef and tender salmon with shrimps with a hint of curry flavor are good, but lamb chops are not recommended for being too greasy... : (

Pamela10:20 08/08/21
Their food has exquisite and rich flavors that dance in your mouth. We celebrated 2021 father's day here by ordering beef salpicao, medium rare steak, and tomato-based pasta (forgot to take a photo of this). While waiting for your food, you can watch how the chefs work inside the kitchen, which makes the experience made it more meaningful. Aside from the food, the staff complied with health and safety protocols - to another level in fact. Upon entering, you are required to submit your contact details for contact tracing purposes, then pass through their sanitation mist, and scan the QR code for the contactless menu. When the food is ready, they have envelopes on the table for you to store your masks while eating. Lastly, each table has a portable alcohol dispenser that has a built-in sensor so you don't need to hold the dispenser to sanitize your hands.

We had Very nice Asian buffet dining experience at Tong Yang In SM City Davao. There are a lot choices from appetizers all the way down to desserts and it was worth it. The seafood, beef and pork meats for grilling as well as the cakes and the cucumber juice were excellent. We were enthusiastically served by Jason Endrina and Steven and they were very nice and accommodating. Great job guys! 👏

May Ledesma21:07 12/25/22
Came home for a 3-week vacation and decoded to meet my college friends here. Apparently, this is a popular place for get-together and dining with family and friends. I can see the novelty of cooking your own food in a public setting, but I honestly was not very crazy about it. I always cook at home 😁 The pre-cooked food were delicious though - they always run out of tempura 😋 Not so much variety on the dessert, but overall, good food. Service was awesome, staff was attentive to our needs and provided us with everything we needed. The room is definitely conducive for chatting with friends - I think we stayed there for 3 hours +

it’s my first time eating at this place and i really love the place because it’s near the beach and i can feel the fresh wind. all i can say is that the food is 10/10! i’m so full right now 🙂 will surely go back to this place!

Kenn Yoshitake01:32 06/22/23
Food is spectacular with a very good view of the sea side! Perfect for a cup of joe and unli coffee brews

Noelle Pamaran15:20 06/19/23
The entrance is not very welcoming. It looked.. too outdoorsy. But when you go to the restaurant, the ambience changes. They have an air-conditioned area and an al fresco seating.Location: it’s not by the highway. You have to get to the end of Maryknoll Drive to get there.Place/Ambiance: The restaurant is good. The view is nice (not jaw dropping). There’re construction activities in the area which ruins the mood. But it’s okay.Price: We ordered their breakfast which is ₱ 299.00 per person. The price is just right for the loaded meal.Food: The food was delicious. Love their sikwate.Service: staff were friendly and accommodating.

Celeni Guinto12:48 05/31/23
I love this place. It is not far from the city center, and you get a view of Samal Island and the sea. We got quite a bit of food but clear stand out for me was the durian shake! It was so good! The chopseuy (I forgot it was called) and crispy pata were great.

Betchai19:32 05/20/23
Aside from the dining experience, kids can also enjoy the playground that is available in the restaurant. Though the food is served that requires a lot of your patience, it is still worth dining. I love that it has a direct sea breeze.

Jenny Magallen22:54 05/03/23
Food and the service is impeccable! The moment you enter the place you'll be greeted with happy faces.The menu has a wide array of delectable cuisine. My personal favorite is their pork barbeque.I would definitely go back there soon!

Jennifer Pejo23:51 10/12/22
The staff is friendly and they do have a parking lot to park. We got there around 6pm which was perfect because around 30 min. later the rush came.It is kid friendly with a variety of foods. You can choose between a smaller serving or bigger serving for some of the dishes.The water is mineral water and they plastic wrap the water cup after it’s been washed that you peel off before they start pouring.Once you order the wait is not long before your food comes out.We sat inside where the AC is but you can opt to sit outside and enjoy the ocean view. Since we went at night, we opted for AC because you can’t see much when it’s dark.

David Woo08:09 05/25/22
Very busy when we arrived. Got a seat for 2 in about 15 minutes later. Food was delicious. Halo halo was the perfect end to our food.

Jenny L (sunseeker)13:04 05/06/22
Abroad resto feels yung alfresco area by the sea.❤️ food is good. Ambiance is great lalo na pag less people. Nice resto to being non-davaoeño guests. Used to be our go-to beach resort during childhood— Maryknoll pool and resort. Just 10 mins away from home.

Aldrich Crescent15:23 04/04/22
Food was good. Ambience was good. Tables on the patio are full since its the nearest to the water. Price rating for the food is Medium. A good place to go for a family meal.

Dheon Mark (Prokopio)07:21 01/03/22
Food was great, served fast, tasted fresh, swift payment. Staff doesn’t touch your glasses when giving you service water which is very good. They also greet with a smile (though not visible).My issue is the view. It’s part of the dining experience — seeing the sea while eating. However during this visit, t’was low tide, the garbage on the beach is discernible. Pieces of trash covered with mud which look like it has been etched there long time. No odour, though.

A very nice place to have a food together with someone/family's food are perfectly & price worth it & very clean staff are so friendly & doing very good!

SY T02:32 07/17/23
I love the food here, but for some Filipinos who are used to extensive seasoning, this might not be your cup of tea, but personally I like it here.Their dishes are reasonably priced, and their serving size is not that bad. Will definitely come back here for more!In terms of the atmosphere inside the restaurant, it's very laid back, too bad when you look outside their windows though as the scenery is not very pretty because it's located in a crowded residential area, but other than that, still a great place to go on dates.

David Marable16:52 07/07/23
Great atmosphere. outdoor patio seating as well inside dining. I have been wanting to eat here for a long time. They have very extensive menu. It was a very good experience. We will definitely go back again.

Filipinas Feliciano15:19 05/29/23
love their csr and wine! we were entertained inside the cellar/function room. experiece was amazing! will def bring my friends there

Ben SN06:12 04/29/23
Wide selection of food choices. A bigger place compared to the old branch in JP Laurel Ave.Food was very good, ambience appealing. Parking is good for at least 8 vehicles.

Reybarns04:35 02/13/23
Swiss cuisine, like its country of origin, is a smorgasbord of the cuisine of its neighbors.The key is in the appropriation of its flavor. The Swiss Deli in Davao achieves just that.Everything we ordered were from Switzerland's neighbors. Croissant is French. Sausage platter is German. Tomato soup is Andalucian.Cheese platter is Romanesque.But the combined taste is divine. My first course - smoked ham and olives with draft beer is a reward for hard work.Plus a company that is not in a hurry despite the flight ...The beer and coffee selection is satisfying.Service is efficient.

Gemima Guillen08:47 01/23/23
Good food and a fantastic location!🍴We had a great meal at this restaurant. We particularly enjoyed the seafood chowder, it was absolutely delicious. They offer to split the sourdough bowl if you're dining with someone else, which is a nice touch. The Spicy Pork Spareribs was amazing, and the Chicken "Zurich" style always feels comforting. The pasta in Aglio e Olio and Mixed Seafood was a bit overcooked, but the taste was still good. I highly recommend ordering the Frozen Margarita while enjoying the night view, it's the perfect pairing.👨🏻‍🍳 The service was excellent and the staff were amazing, they were very friendly and helpful.💵 Accepts cash and card paymentOverall, it's a great place to dine and I highly recommend visiting.

Jenny L (sunseeker)15:56 12/20/22
New location with a nice view. Fave tonight is aglio olio and the mixed green salad. Reserve a table especially during peak days. Great for intimate events too!

Patrick Trinidad12:44 04/08/22
A sad experience! Soggy tuna sandwich (add more mayo please…it looked like it was scooped out of the can and straight on the toasted American bread slices!) a lackluster cold cuts plate with a few slices of cheese (even Che-Vital tasted much better!) and salad that will make Wendy’s blush with embarrassment.And to top it all, there was no water to wash our hands when we came here.Even the Swiss maid costumes of the servers did not cheer me up! If the Swiss can only see how their honor was named for this store!

Gee Dee (About My Philippine Life)11:00 04/08/22
Nice small restaurant/bar/deli.. started with a good baked bread. Cold beer, meal of the day a well cooked rib eye steak.. cooked my way. Good serving amount. Finished meal with a small piece of blueberry cheesecake. Good meal at a good price..will return..

Rodcel Justin Pante16:44 08/05/23
A known “must try” when in Davao but did not meet expectations on food quality. It is underwhelming. When you pay on that price level, you expect more.Ordered buko juice served on the coconut itself but surprised its sweetened. The view is great, yes. But the taste i don’t recommend. Dined here twice, 2018 and 2023, respectively - my impression before remained the same.

Alvin Baking09:51 06/26/23
Jacks' Ridge is an outstanding restaurant and tourist spot that offers a breathtaking experience. Perched atop a hill, it provides a captivating view of the city, especially at night when the city lights twinkle like stars below.One of the highlights of our visit was the exceptional food that Jacks' Ridge offers.Jacks' Ridge is not only a great place for a culinary adventure but also an ideal spot to spend quality time with loved ones. Whether you're visiting with your family, as a couple, with friends, or even with business peers, the ambiance and atmosphere at Jacks' Ridge are welcoming and accommodating. The picturesque surroundings, combined with the excellent food and warm hospitality, create a memorable dining experience.

Matthew McDermott12:18 05/09/23
One of the best views in Davao. Best at night. Simply wonderful. Two excellent restaurants. One is enclosed and air-conditioned. Great food but expensive. The complex has a pool with waterfall (go late and skinny dip with your girl). There are 3-4 cabins for rent below the ridge. Lots of fun 😊. Rent one. Spend a long weekend here. The smaller restaurant is also a great bakery.

Clive Cariaga03:20 04/30/23
(Visited last February on a weekday night). The ambiance in this place is very nice. Their bathrooms are fairly clean for a restaurant with a large number of customers. They have a variety of dishes to choose from. Most of the dishes we ordered tasted great. The place is very wide and big.For the cons: We made a reservation for a big group, paid thru bank transfer. The staff were not responding, and it was difficult to contact them, especially during their operating hours at night. We had to go back to the place to make sure that they received our payment. The place is kinda remote. No public transport is readily available. Fortunately, their security guards are very kind in assisting us to hail a taxi. I'm not sure if they have pertinent ordinance in the city, but they close early at 10PM, with cutoff order at 9PM.Overall, our stay was good.

Milcah12:49 04/25/23
I recently ventured to the magnificent city of Davao and discovered a hidden gem that truly took my breath away – Jack's Ridge.From the moment I arrived at Jack's Ridge, I was captivated by the stunning panoramic views that stretched out before me. The ridge overlooks the entire city, offering a truly awe-inspiring vista that is unmatched anywhere else in Davao. As an adventurer, I relished the chance to explore the surrounding countryside and take in the majestic natural beauty that surrounded me.But what really set Jack's Ridge apart was the warm and friendly hospitality of the staff. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted with open arms and treated like a true explorer, with plenty of tips and recommendations for things to see and do in the area. Whether I was relaxing with a cold drink and taking in the stunning sunset, or venturing out to explore the surrounding countryside, I felt like I was in good hands every step of the way.In conclusion, I cannot recommend Jack's Ridge enough. It's a true hidden gem that offers a unique blend of history, culture, and natural beauty that is sure to captivate anyone with a sense of adventure. If you're looking for a truly unforgettable experience in Davao, be sure to add Jack's Ridge to your list of must-see destinations!

Juan Alvarez14:16 03/08/23
Jack's Ridge was, as always, a great visit with breathtaking views of the Davao Gulf, Samal, and Talikud as well as the city center. I was a bit bummed out that my favorite monkey was removed from its post. The kids missed it too. The restaurant had many items which were unavailable, taking away from our experience. But the staff was hard working and even offered to refill my water bottles before we left. That was a great attention to detail and truly made my experience a pleasant one. It would be pretty cool if the restaurant attendants would ask customer who are about to pay if they need a taxi so the wait would not be so long.Another suggestion would be to add a ceiling fan to the taxi waiting area. By the way, both times I visited recently, the tourist officer and entrance security personnel were OUTSTANDING and hospitable. Great going!Disclaimer: I rated the rooms 5 stars such as not docking the establishment since I did not visit the rooms. Please rely on other reviews and pictures to measure overnight accommodations.

I took me Girlfriend and her family out for her birthday to this place. Our first time there and we had a great time! The service is great! We got our food really fast and it was all delicious! The views from this hilltop resort are amazing! I highly recommend you putting this place on your list of places to see here in Davao City!

May Ledesma08:10 01/03/23
It's always awesome every time we visit here. My parents live close by, so it is always a go-to place for dinner and just to hang out for photo ops 😉 The ambiance here is great, fresh air, overlooking the sights and sounds of the city. The food tastes amazing, and the portions are just right for the price. The staff are super attentive and have the perfect sense of humor to avoid any dull moments 😁 I personally love the group that serenades the customers - hopping from one table to the next. They even allowed us to sing along, which was super fun and awesome! It's definitely an awesome place for family gatherings. I will be back again and again. Keep up the awesome work! 👌

Runar Log07:23 12/14/22
Very nice view. And super great service. But, the food was not the best. I ordered the Beef Kaldereta, but the vegetables wasn't really cooked and also the rice, so it was hard to chew. But other than that, it was a fantastic experience over all. Thank you so much! 😍
