Upscale lounging in Davao is what the place offers and they do so with pizazz, sophistication and reverence for taste. Pricey, yes, but it is a five star establishment. The service is tops; the drinks constantly ice cold and served as though one is royalty. Very welcoming atmosphere.

Marco Polo may not have the widest selection of buffet, but i can guarantee that its worth it. Had lunch here this month and still they have the exceptional choices for the main course, sea food and japanese food are delectable. Plus, the bagnet thats very crunchy. Desserts are still heavenly.. Their chocolate cake, pudding, and DIY halo2x are must-try..

I have gone many times over that past eight years and have always enjoyed it. I think it is a bit expensive for Davao, but you have to expect to pay more for it being in the Marco Polo Hotel. The breakfast is what I enjoy the most. There is a wide selection and I have never had a dish... More

Cafe Marco is still considered as the best-tasting buffet in Davao City despite the growing number of buffet restaurants.

Loved the place as there was so many choices of food that I didn't know where to start. Even the dessert was fun! There was quite a number of people in the restaurant, many were locals, so that only proved that it was a good place to have a meal!

Slightly above average food. If the portions weren't so large, I would say the food was just average. The ambience is weak for a Marco Polo hotel. This is easily the most dated Marco Polo I've ever been in. Wifi is dreadfully slow. Actually, dreadful doesn't even begin to describe how bad the wifi is in the dining area. Staff... More
