It was our second night in Davao on a business trip and wanted to try some good food. We asked the blue taxi driver and he recommended Jack's Ridge. Its the overlooking version of Antipolo but much better and cheaper food. It was night when we went there. There were locals and tourists. Overall it was a great experience.

The restaurant food is good but it's the stunning view of Davao City at night which is the main attraction! This is perfect for a family gathering or just dining with friends. If you're looking for a place where you can dine as well as enjoy the sights- and need a change of atmosphere, this is the place to be!

What is good about this place is you have the open view of downtown davao while enjoying your food. Perfect for later afternoon/evening dining. The view adds the flavor.

We went here for dinner and I must say that what I enjoyed most is the view. There are a lot of choices for the food. The taste is okay and served hot. There is so much to see in this place but the best is the view since is overlooking the city. Quite an effort to go to but... More

Been visiting this place umpteen times whenever I'm back in Davao. It has a good feeling seeing the scenic view day or night time. Food was alright typical dabawenyo, downside is the food its overpriced. The fact there's number of newbie restaurants in town equally good as jack's ridge it made the place not so special anymore. On top of... More

We went here after our stay in Pearl Farm and since the timing of the boats didn't allow us to have lunch, our party was looking forward to delicious late lunch specially we heard Jack's Ridge name mentioned quite often. How disappointed we were. I agree, the restaurant offers great view. It was really breath taking. I also give credit... More

I have been to Jack's Ridge with my girlfriend this July. The place is very cozy and peaceful, it has a nice view over the city. But the best about it was the food. For dinner we have eaten chicken barbecue with rice, and honestly, it has been the best chicken barbecue I have ever eaten in my life. I... More

We had dinner at Taklobo Restaurant and though food is nothing special, it tastes good. Service and view is great as well. We bought cakes at Karlo's Gourmet and Coffee and I find it weird that there's 10% service charge for take away.. I loved the cakes especially their salted caramel though.
