Best grilled ribs and barbecue in Davao. Serving of food after taking the order is faster than what we expected. However, there was a confusion in the order noted by the waiter. We ordered buko shakes but the order was forgotten but they ended up serving more rice than what we have ordered. Great ambience and plus points for the... More

Harana's has been a Davao institution since atleast the 1970's. It used to be one of the go to places in Davao, but time has produced a plethora of competitors and new malls The fact that it has been around this long means it continues to serve up quality eats. I was there a couple of weeks ago for a... More

For grilled seafood, ribs and barbecue, Harana's always the first choice in Davao for more than 30 years now. They also have other Filipino favorites that are just as good. Staff have always been very helpful and very friendly. Always a pleasant trip down memory lane whenever we dine at Harana.

We have been here twice recently and have enjoyed the Filipino native food. However, the service has been slow and the fruit shakes pedestrian. They state that the ribs and fried rice are their specialties and both are OK. I had an un-marinated pork chop and it was very tender and tasty. I also had a special kankong dish made... More

Harana has been around since dining out started in Davao. It used to be very popular and is probably part of the memories of Dabawenyos of a certain age. But it needs to update its cooking and presentation so that it will remain as one of Davao's favorite restaurants for generations to come.

This is not the first time that I've been to Harana but we went there for meeting with old friends. I just realized that it would be your choice if you are watching your cholesterol or have medical condition because they serve fish and it can be cooked various ways. But because I'm a meat lover my favorite is the... More

Nice place, good food, but the last time we went there, I was very disappointed. No one entertained us, we were seating for about 10 minutes, no one approached us to get our orders, and to think there are very few customers. We promptly left and never came back, and that was maybe ten years ago

My mom used to bring us to Harana when we were kids, and it used to be a favorite restaurant - this was way back when there were not a lot of restaurants in Davao to choose from. After a few years, I ate at the restaurant the other day and I was disappointed. I ordered kare-kare, which was what... More

We went here for dinner with a large group. The barbecue was excellent. I had the mongolain ribs. While slightly overcooked the flavor was outstanding. The garlic rice was really good too. My wife had the barbecue chicken and loved it. She also really liked the eggplant appetizer.

Had a class reunion early lunch just for an hour and a half. We ask the owner, Mrs. Charito Lizada to help us with food selection and quantity days before. She ask our motif, budget ( 350/ pax ) and from where our guest were. Voila! the results were....everybody took pictures of restaurants' set-up and remembered well the unique lunch... More
