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

Enjoyed the awesome view of Davao City while having durian coffee and cakes at Karlo's Gourmet & Coffee. Best to go there at night.

It is a busy side of a small mountain (big hill) overlooking the city, with a great night time view. A wide variety of food was available; the ribs were great, the tenderloin tips were ok, and the price was worth it -- $25 for 2 meals.

I don't know why Jack's Ridge (JR) became a tourist spot. We almost missed it. Driving what feels like a mountain, there's a small turn that leads to JR. You'll find a hard time finding a parking space. The restaurants aren't spectacular. Other than the view of (I was told it was a cemetery) Davao and the Tagaytay/Baguio type chill,... More

This is a great place to just chill and relax....best time to go here is late in the afternoon when the air is cooler and be able to see the view of the city while it's still daylight. Watch as the sun goes down and dramatically there's a change of scenery- overlooking Davao city lights and Samal island from afar... More

If you visited High Ridge in CDO, you'll be disappointed with this one. Though I'm impressed with their pakbet and pork sisig. But aside from their must-trys, you shouldn't look for great service. I can't believe how rude the servers was. We were chatting and enjoying our last drinks when they suddenly interrupted us by starting to clean-up our table.... More
