Went here for dinner and drinks and it was excellent...setting European and in a city like Davao that's a nice break. Service was excellent and very attentive. The menu is diverse international with a bent for Dutch cuisine but the steaks are superb. Normally in the Philippines when you order steak you get a AAA Angus from US or Australia... More

Went there once with my family to check the place out. Inside was a white woman behind the bar (probably the owner's wife) and a boy (could be their son) who saw us coming and overheard her saying in Dutch (her language and explains why the place is called De Bonte Koe) "wat komen die hier doen? ze kunnen dit...

They use fine ingredients for their food. And each course is well-plated. The taste is very nice...especially their Tomato Soup and Salmon entrees. A bit pricy. But they live up to the qualities of serving European Cuisine.

...a very good food experience in Davao. Thy their steak - medium done....melting in your mouth. And don't miss to taste their house wine, you won't go wrong. A nice match: red wine and steak.

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.
