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

Beautiful building and ambiance, excellent service and friendly staff,We each had one of the degustation menus. seven course of heavenly food. Portions perfect size, flavours fantastic and cooked to perfection. Water glasses constantly topped up, wine very reasonably priced. Overall an excellent meal which would have cost three times the price in Manila. Loved it !

I bid food lovers, from the plain foodie to the connoisseur, to try out this place--a heritage house on a hill converted into a fine dining restaurant. I was there to shoot the June cover of a Philippine magazine which will feature muses from local elite families. I also shot a story featuring the restaurant's chef, Cathy Binag, as well... More

The restaurant is perfect for a date with your special someone or a family bonding. The food is really good. It might be a little expensive compared to other restaurants in the city but you definitely get what you paid for. The ambiance is good, the place is clean and elegant, the services are top-notch and the food they serve... More

From the first spoonful up to the last, we were riding through different waves of dessert pleasure. The berries on top of the smooth and velvety cheesecake were refreshing with a good balance of saccharinity, tartness and acidity. See those little black specks? Yep, legit vanilla beans! The meringue base, used in lieu of the usual graham crust I reckon,... More

Loved the ambiance of the place, and the food presentation was quite excellent. It's supposed to be gourmet dining, so I was expecting that I'll be floored by the food. I found it to be good, but not extra special. Loved the vegetables, specially the way they used the spices and other flavors to enhance ordinary vegetables. We didn't pay... More

I've been wanting to try out this restaurant for the longest time, and I finally got the chance yesterday. I ordered the clam vongole pasta, while my friends ordered the pan-seared salmon, fish and chips, a bento box and the trio of oysters. my pasta was undercooked, the sauce was gritty and floury (upon checking with the waitress, she insisted...

The White House is a beautiful restaurant in a heritage building with a show kitchen and all the trappings of a fine dining establishment. The atmosphere is excellent, but for everything else, from service to food, there's still room for improvement. It started pretty bad when my choice of wine (one of the house wines) was not available.This should not... More

Well this was a real find: An extremely tastefully and luxuriously converted plantation house on a leafy green island amongst the hurly burly of suburban Davao. Not just a really good meal but a true dining experience. The fusion of different japanese and some european cuisines works amazingly well. We ended up trying several different starters all of which were... More

Went here for the first time last month. I only had their famous cheesecake which was delicious. The atmosphere was great. I like their concept of fine dining, a little bit expensive compared with other restaurant in Davao City but you won't leave the place without feeling satisfied. The service was excellent. The staff were very friendly. The place is... More
