“Excellent and Authentic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

I wanted a place where I can impress my husband( he's Italian) so he can be a bit picky. But I didn't go wrong with this place... Thanks to chef Yves and his wife chef Rosalie who made the experience woderful. From the appetizer up to the dessert everything was perfect. The dishes were simple but definitely flavorful and the presentation was 5star....will definitely go back soon. Highly recommended to everyone both local and foreign tourists. It's Davao's hidden gem... Thanks Yves and Rosalie!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

We've traveled all over the Philippines and to find a place like this is a real gem.
Recommended by friends we had an amazing meal there like none other I have had in the Philippines. It's a small boutique restaurant and the food is fantastic...the menu offers something for everyone so you don't have to worry about being stuck with only one or two choices. Their special board changes daily. Pricing is totally in line with the quality. The steak and lamb superb, sauces to die for and the service is impeccable.You may want to make reservations as it's small but they offer outdoor seating as well. A fun atmosphere tops it off and the deserts...simply the best...nothing else compares!

“A nice little cozy French restaurant in Davao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

I just came home from a lovely dinner with friends in this cozy and quaint restaurant. I love the plum colored walls and its simple homey ambience. The staff and owners are very warm and friendly. The restaurant is a venue that works perfectly for different occasions - a romantic dinner, casual dinner with the family, or a night out with friends.They serve good and reasonably priced authentic French food. Their homemade durian icecream is a must try.

“My All Time Favorite Place in Davao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

I've lived my entire life in this city, and I've watched it grow and prosper with some pride. I'm especially proud, as a Davoeño that the city is now big enough, and sophisticated enough to have attracted an authentic, French bistro.

I've eaten here so many times that I've probably memorized the extensive menu, but regardless of the number of times I've been, i never tire of the food and wine. The owners, Rosalie and Yves Are, of course part of Ghe attraction: he the charming Frenchman who can describe everything on the menu in a manner that makes you want to order everything. She, the beautiful Filipima chef, trained in France, who is capable of creating so many perfect French dishes that I've lost count of how many I've eaten.

I've reviewed Bon Appétit before, but Tuesday's Staek Pavé, served on a wooden platter as it would be in Paris, was so scrumptious that I had to write again.

Well done mes amis, well done!
