Perched on Matina Hills, Jack's Ridge offers the best view of the Davao City especially at night. Foods are okay but service can be slow on peak hours.

Poeple usually come here for the view. The food is just typical Filipino food. It's ok. It's good. What we do is that, we order the food first then go around rather than wait for the food because with my previous experience, their service is slow. So after going around, we comeback to our table, with our food already served.... More

It was our second day in Davao when we tried to eat here at around 5PM. I was expecting a lot since our driver told us that this was one of the best restaurants in Davao with overlooking view of the city. The view was indeed awesome. It was a 180-degree view of Davao. However, service was so slow. We... More

We have been enjoying Jack's Ridge for going on 17 years as we always eat there when visiting Davao. First of all, the location is excellent and no matter if you are there for lunch or dinner the view of Davao is always awesome. They have great Mango shakes, some of the best Kanilaw, and the Sizzling Gambas (shrimp) are... More

The restaurant sits atop a ridge and offers a nice view, especially in the evening as the lights begin to gleam. The place gets crowded so arriving there around 5:15 for dinner guarantees you a pretty good seat. We ordered beef tenderloin and pork spareribs was great! We had the fam as and sinigang. Prices around 150-400 per dish. Plenty... More
