“Stunning views & stunning food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Any visit to Davao MUST include a visit to Jack's Ridge for a meal & a walk around the location. The restaurant is always busy which is an indication of it's popularity, It serves a mix of Filipino & European foods - Fusion style. The Pork spare ribs are the best I have eaten ANYWHERE

“Jack's Ridge A Davao 'must see'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Jack's ridge is not just a Restaurant it's more of an attraction with lots of places to eat , agreat view over the City and a real nice atmosphere .
Choose any of the eateries in this historic location from Local cuisine to Italian Pizza's and I'm sure whatever the occasion is it will be enjoyable .

A great place to take that special person or friends and Family , spend some time looking around as this site was a very important place during the second World war

Jack's Ridge was once the headquarters of the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II, which served as their watchtower against the American forces. Today, Jack’s Ridge still preserves mementos of its historic past: the warplane crash sites; Japanese-dug tunnels where gold bullion's and other treasures were believed to be still buried; and even prehistoric clam shells which testify that the area was once underwater millions of years ago.

A wonderful place to spend time !

“Awesome View While Dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Nothing compares to be on a gastronomic adventure being serenaded by the wind blowing your skin and hair while the city lights spark like fireflies in the sky. All I can say is that the place is best visited during evenings to experience a panoramic view of the City of Davao from atop. Food is just average but tourists choose to mob their place because of the relaxing scenery the place can offer.

“The Best Food of Davao are here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Its far but worth it! Lots of people are here especially at night where its the best time for it. I love the food with all the variants here lots of choices to be made.. I also like the three musicians with their own individual big instruments and they will serenade you every table it seems like they are and old jukebox in the flesh. The food was superb! Mouth watering and the prices are not bad at all.. Great views are there with some historic informations about it.
