Between Average and Very Good

I went there twice. As my title said: Between average and very good. Food is (not always!) something "special" - that's why in my opinion most all dishes are overpriced. Can't recommend it again.

Great ambiance. Good desserts, especially the Yamamomo Cheesecake. The main course is also good. However, prices are very expensive with only small portions and the service is very slow. Food arrives within 45 mins. to 1 hour.

We had the 3 degustation menus. The quantities are kind of small but overall you get your stomach filled. The food is very nice, sophisticated, full of various tastes, nice presentation. They obviously try some "chemistry" cooking which give some amazing tastes like the "cream" of sea weed touch in the pumpkin soup. The waiters knows what there is in... More

the place is perfect. customer service is great. but the food is way overpriced. i wouldn't mind paying for the usual super expensive food in super small portions when it's worth it, but food here's just really ordinary. sadly.

If you're looking for a place to bring your date somewhere romantic. Then bring your date here. Tried the degustation, chef Cathy Binag also came to entertain us even just for a few minutes. Their durian yema cheesecake is also a must try! Loved everything about the place! Would love to come back here again soon!

One of the few fine dining restaurants in Davao City that you'd want to spend your money on. The service is good. The food is okay. It's all about the ambience. If you're looking for a place to take your date, consider choosing this place.

We went to try this place firstly for the ambiance. It was situated in an old ancestral home now converted into a restaurant. While the exterior of the house was retained, the interior was modernized (although old chandeliers could still be found in the restaurant). The restaurant had an open kitchen and you can see your food being prepared from... More

tHEIR yamamomo cheesecake is a must-try.. i consider it as a one of the best tasting cheesecake. They got exciting coffee and drinks too.. However, their main course for lunch and dinner are more expensive than other foreign restaurants in the city. Their degustation starts at Php690.00. I dont recommend the merienda buffet, its too pricey for typical filipino merienda... More
