Delcetable piece of history

For grilled seafood, ribs and barbecue, Harana's always the first choice in Davao for more than 30 years now. They also have other Filipino favorites that are just as good. Staff have always been very helpful and very friendly. Always a pleasant trip down memory lane whenever we dine at Harana.

We have been here twice recently and have enjoyed the Filipino native food. However, the service has been slow and the fruit shakes pedestrian. They state that the ribs and fried rice are their specialties and both are OK. I had an un-marinated pork chop and it was very tender and tasty. I also had a special kankong dish made... More

Harana has been around since dining out started in Davao. It used to be very popular and is probably part of the memories of Dabawenyos of a certain age. But it needs to update its cooking and presentation so that it will remain as one of Davao's favorite restaurants for generations to come.

This is not the first time that I've been to Harana but we went there for meeting with old friends. I just realized that it would be your choice if you are watching your cholesterol or have medical condition because they serve fish and it can be cooked various ways. But because I'm a meat lover my favorite is the... More

Nice place, good food, but the last time we went there, I was very disappointed. No one entertained us, we were seating for about 10 minutes, no one approached us to get our orders, and to think there are very few customers. We promptly left and never came back, and that was maybe ten years ago

My mom used to bring us to Harana when we were kids, and it used to be a favorite restaurant - this was way back when there were not a lot of restaurants in Davao to choose from. After a few years, I ate at the restaurant the other day and I was disappointed. I ordered kare-kare, which was what... More

We went here for dinner with a large group. The barbecue was excellent. I had the mongolain ribs. While slightly overcooked the flavor was outstanding. The garlic rice was really good too. My wife had the barbecue chicken and loved it. She also really liked the eggplant appetizer.

She ask our motif, budget ( 350/ pax ) and from where our guest were. Voila! the results were....everybody took pictures of restaurants' set-up and remembered well the unique lunch... More

We came with the family as we wanted just good grilled items and typical Filipino fare. We were not disappointed. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. We came early in the evening (before 6) which was a good thing as the place quickly filled up and waiters got busier. This restaurant is your good old reliable if you want delicious Filipino...
