An evening of his/her story, elegance, coziness and most of all superb food! They have a standard menu and occasional and seasonal menu but the most wonderful experience is for Claude personally explaining the menu and the drinks that may go with it. He goes out of his way to attend to the needs of his guests to make sure... More

My first visit to Claudes Cafe de Ville in Davao was in 2004 and for me it was a so pleasant surprise that I many years later, in 2011, fly down from Hong Kong just to check if the standard of the food in the faithfully restored colonial house that the restaurant just had moved in to kept up the...

The whole set up brings you back to the old era. Bathroom is so squeaky clean! This place is perfect for family and couples having special occasions.

The location and ambience for me is the centrepiece of this restaurant. It feels like home of old, but with very good AC :) Uber romantic place..somewhere where you really go to celebrate an event. Then you have Claude himself greet you as you get seated at your table. Food-the best for me was the salad...it came with goat cheese... More

Although it was rather late but they were still eager to accommodate us. I just love the whole set up of this restaurant especially the kitchen, it resembled that of a French country look. Great food, good service, cozy ambiance. What more could you ask for.

We had beef, it was OK. The salmon was a bit old or freezon too long. But the place was classic. Nothing special in this place that surprise me.

pleasantly surprised by the salad buffet. food quality was excellent. didn't expect french-style food and service in a fancy period wooden house, but it works, and is worth a stop and a meal.

This restaurant takes you back to the Spanish era, the atmosphere reminded me of my grandma's old house. Food was great, more than I expected. I had steak and pasta with a glass of wine. I will come back here whenever I'm in Davao.

Its hard to find great western food in the Philippines, and when you're away the local cuisine is great, but I was referred to this place by a local, and I went there and found a piece of France in Davao. They had this bruschetta style bread and diced tomato in olive oil as a free appetizer. I ordered the... More

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.
