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

Average buffet offerings; Staff was slow to replenish grilled tuna jaw, lechon was mostly fat, sushi and sashimi items were ok and desserts were plenty and colorful.

I have visited this restaurant many times on my visit to Davao, and it has never ceased to impress me. The food is "always" fantastic with an excellent selection second to none. Wait staff are professional and make you feel "special". Highly recommended.

This is a good Hotel cafe. The ambiance is nice and the food is good. This is the sort of place you would expect from Marco Polo. The service is quiet good and as expected the pricing is Marco Polo.
