On a holiday, the family decided to go on a quick trip to Tagum City some 1hr and 30 mins. from Davao City. Before a long bridge at Brgy. Bingcungan, a sign board points you to Punong Restaurant. There's a wide parking space cause even...More

The real attraction here is the venue, which is great: relaxing atmosphere, decent service, and pretty good food. If you're after a place to haul the family for a weekend meal event, this is the move.

LOCATION: a bit far from city center. But accessible through tricycles and jeepneys. Just along the highway. It would be better if you have a private transportation. The place itself is very scenic. Indeed great for family gathering. SERVICE/STAFF: the staff is great and service...More

Went there with friends. It's a nice place to be, and before eating we took a stroll along the boardwalks on the lake-side. Quite a good place for bird-watching. Restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere. Service reasonably quick. We majored on sea food and it was...More

An hour's drive from Davao, this place is worth it if you want seafood in a natural yet refined setting. Set in the middle of a mangrove, this restaurant on stilts offers the usual fish, shrimps and crabs. But it has more- shells that are...More
