We come here regularly for Christmas dinner and for Birthdays. Cafe Marcos regular dinner buffet is really excellent for any occasion. Be it party, romantic occasion, or business dinner. The selection and variety of foods is good and most important, the quality of the food is excellent. Fresh raw materials is the key to a good dinner and that's what... More

My boyfriend and I have tried both the breakfast and dinner buffets at Cafe Marco. It was good but an expensive price to pay for limited selections. I personally liked the fruit juices that they served but they only served like two during our visit there. But it is a good place to eat during special occasions - we even... More

Been here for 3 times already and the latest one was the day before my graduation. Though not as diverse as the normal buffet restaurant, marco polo still offers a good selection of japanese, italian, french, pinoy, american and chinese food which will satisfy you cravings.

A typical hotel ambiance and smiling crews. Good for buffet. A little bit pricey too. Their blueberry cheese cake is a must try!

No great shakes here. Nothing wrong either. I could not write a glowing review nor find fault. The cafe serves its purpose- - - feed hotel guests and their visitors when hungry.

The place is a bit pricey for me given that there are other cafes in Davao that now offers better choices. I guess the name commands the price. I would suggest that travellers try the other cafes and restaurants outside of the hotel first.

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.
