Amazing view.

Had dinner with my sister here. The place offers an amazing view of the city. You have 3 restaurants to choose from: their open air family restaurant (taklobo), kai's bar and grill, and karlo's cafe with an open and airconditioned area, which offers exotic durian/marang/langka coffee.

If you want to have a nice view of the City jack's Ridge is definitely the place. It is not too far and it has restaurant and coffee shop within. After you enjoy the view of Davao you can relax and chat at Carlo's Coffee Station and if you want to be refreshed their restaurant also serves Halo-halo. I suggest... More

You should visit the place during night time and see the skyline of the city and the north part of Davao. Good for dating couples,

We took some Manila based friends to enjoy the view and have dinner. The view, as always, is spectacular, however the food is nothing to rave about, just your regular run of the mill Filipino dishes. The grilled squid was the best in the bunch. We also had green mango salad, seafood sinigang (which was disappointing) chicken wings and lapulapu.... More

The view is spectacular. No questions. But the food is really inedible, not to mention the poor service offered. Not to mention the bugs and mosquitoes that add up to the bad experience. And the price is way too high for such poor quality food.

Went there with family and friends around 8pm. There were a lot of customers but waiting time was acceptable. Was expecting great food but everything was plain and normal. No wow food factor. View was great. Was not raining and enjoyed the high Davao City view.

Had dinner at Talokab restaurant and enjoyed the view. Waiters were quick and attentive, for a Sunday it was packed but they got our orders right. Nothing special about the food though :) My friend tried the Durian coffee at Karlos gourmet coffee,said it's worth trying. Accessible (taxi fare from Poblacion district is P98 ).

Since it was a weekend and we did not called-in to reserve seats, we waited for almost an hour because we are a group of 20+. While waiting we enjoyed the good music bt the roving band, the cold winds and the night view.

What a blast! A very eclectic environment with a terrace view that shows you everything in Davao - all the way to the ocean! Good was good and plentiful ... This is not gourmet stuff, but good and homestyle cooking. They also have some terrific strolling mariachis! This was really fun ...
