Great location up in the hills overlooking the city. Food is excellent all round and is served quick. Only issue is this place tends to be very busy and you can't book in advance so you could have to wait a bit for a table. great value all round

The overlooking view is excellent. This is a perfect place to spot the entire city's development while dining in with your family and friends. I brought my family here several times because this place is filled with historical memories and has a beautifully landscaped gardens. As to the Taklobo Restaurant, I'd say the service is fairly quick. The ambiance especially... More

Historically significant location. (Japanese strong hold in WW2) Awesome view and the best point is the food was very good! Highly recommend the BBQ Ribs!

We went here around 3pm and I was surprised they only have certain hours where they served lunch and that was I think 11am-2pm (not sure) but we haven't had lunch & was so hungry we ended up eating on their coffee shop (Karlo's Gourmet & Coffee). The Spanish Quesadilla is so yummy! It's a bit pricey but I guess... More

The view was great as well as the food and the service. For a taste of Davao is highly recommended. Fresh, cheap and good service. Casual with live table to table... More

If you want a cool and fresh place to go to it's definitely Jack's Ridge. You can have dinner at the restaurants, few drinks at the restobar, or just hang out overlooking the city. Your kids can play at their kids zone. Just keep safe when driving up to the area.

Went here with a friend to have dinner. Although it was far from our accommodation, the place is popular so we decided to get a quick look before we head to Samal the following day. We took a cab and paid 100php. It was 7pm when we arrived and the restaurant was full of people. We thought we could no... More

Went there just recently and got lucky to get one of the best tables in the place. The view was stunning. Great service and food. Came there for just Drinks and Dessert. Their Halo Halo was awesome. My advice is to come a little early about 5PM to get a great table and absorb the view. Tried coming back on... More

Great views of the city. Went twice with friends, live music and the place alive at night. I love Kare Kare, the sauce taste great but didnt like the meat full of fat and the vegetables not properly cooked.
