I love the intimate ambiance Claude's have. Even if there's a group of guests at an adjacent table, there's still that feeling of exclusivity. The lit candles add a romantic flare. In the couple of times I've been there, I couldn't help but feel the creeps when I go to the powder room. It's as if someone's staring at me... More

I love this place. Chef Claude goes out of his way to give you a personal welcome. He remembered us from our previous visit 6 months earlier. Great food especially if you are a steak lover accompanied by a wonderful wine selection. Great service and reasonable prices. One of our favourite top end restauarants in Davao.

My partner (Filipino) and I (non-Filipino) visited Davao City in April. We learned much about the Island of Mindano and Davao City and its rich history and culture. I had no clue about it until our visit. We dined one night at Claude's Cafe because Claude's Cafe is highly regarded, and because we love steak and Claude's Cafe is known... More

Went here with my fiancé the night before his flight back to Germany for dinner, and hoped for a wonderful night after that. But I thought we'll had great meal. I've been in Claude's before, had the cordon bleu and Caesar salad again because I was looking for their flavors but unfortunately it tasted different.. My fiancé is a "vegetarian"... More

The food here was great. It is set in a rustic older home. The owners came by and greeted us personally which was so nice. The steaks were great as well as any other food that I could steal off of someone else's plate!

I always appreciate their salad. Really great and you have variety of vegies and dressings. The place is so relaxing and clean. Cafe attendants and the owners are very accommodating. They serve very pasta menus and other Italian dishes. Great experience! I highly suggest this place for fine dining.

Mediterranean Cuisine.

Claude’s serves the best steaks in town. Their steaks are perfectly cooked to the diner’s specifications with a choice of pepper or mushroom sauce. It can also be served with either mashed potatoes, or the more popular choice, rice.

Other crowd-drawers are their appetizers, salads and soups. Some appetizers which deserve to be mentioned are their salmon pate and shrimp cocktail. The pate is served with lightly toasted sliced French bread while the cocktail is full of fresh shrimp smothered with light dressing and a helping of tomatoes and avocados. Their ceasar’s salad is also easily one of the best I’ve tasted in the city.
