We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night and was treated like long lost friends by the owners and as VIP's form the staff. Extensive Menu and a small but more than adequate wine list I ordered Pepper Steak and it was coked EXACTLY how I ordered it. The service is bordering on perfection This restaurant had just gained a... More

I've been visiting De Bonte Koe, and its proprietor, Henny Smits for more than ten years. It's one of the few restaurants in the Philippines in which the same high standard has been maintained unflaggingly over time, and for that reason alone is worthy of the rating. I ate there again, with three companions, last week and, as usual, received... More

This has been the best meal by far during my trip in the Philippines. Everything from the atmosphere to the food exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be going here again

I went here for dinner with coworkers, a vendor and clients and the only bad thing was trying to chose what to have off the menu. The five of us and a few soups and salads to start with, each was so good people who had met only at dinner were sharing tastes and bites. Our dinners were wonderful, everyone... More

And little difficult to find but worth the time, a tip; it is located at the very back of the compound, the food, service, ambiance all are excellent, highly recommended for those special occasions a must try.

I hadn't been to De Bonte Koe in almost two years, not because I didn't like the place or because the food wasn't well prepared, but simply to avoid, in my advancing years, the hassle of parking down town. Tonight I returned after much too long an absence, and was delighted to find that nothing's changed. That is, the food--and... More

The restaurant is located in the Casa de Habana, down a pathway, and is a little difficult to find. It was worth it though, as we enjoyed the stuffed mussels, the Dutch stew and an Indonesian pasta dish. A wide variety of options, and the wine was reasonably priced.

My wife and I have been going here for around 5 years, for a beautiful romantic place it is impossible to beat in Davao, the food as always is second to none, well done to Haney the owner for working so hard to keep the quality and service perfect every time

This is our fourth visit to Davao, but unfortunately only our first to De Bonte Koe, but at least we had to time to visit twice. I have visited Amsterdam and the Netherlands many, many times because I find the country so wonderful, even inspiring and the culture so rich. I would not rate the food there as an attraction,...
