Simply referred to as "MTS", this is a collection of mostly bars and simple diners. A lot of locals hang out here especially at night where it can be packed and parking will be hard to find.

As a tourist, I did not find anything exciting about the Matina Square. I went at night on a weekday. There were lots of live bands playing. It was cool to see some kids break dancing off on their own. Most people were just seated which made it seem like an average patio location.

Aside from the restaurants present in the area, there is also a zumba class during Monday to Thursday that starts at 6:30 pm and only costs 25 pesos per head. Not bad! There is also a massage parlor and a salon on the second floor.

I like going here in the afternoons, sitting (and/or reading) in one of the benches in the back. Lots of food choices too!

I like Matina Town Square, known to locals merely as "MTS" because it shows the soul of Davao. It is a complex of bars and restaurants, one of which has a live bands. Beer and Fingerfood "Pulutan" are the standard fare in this busy, fun place. This is also the place where smokers are assigned a smoking area, far away... More

Matina Town Square, or popularly known as MTS, offers a lot of cool events ranging from seasonal events to company-hosted events. I like how you have a great food selection in this compound (from sweets & coffee to fine dining). I also like the fact that they have a big coffeeshop in the middle. The only knack is the traffic...
