The breakfast buffet here is excellent - good value compared to the food choices available. The local produce of vegetables and fruits are well represented here. They even have a section for halal food for our muslim visitors. Great tasting 5 star chef prepared choices. Recommended.

I spent many breakfasts, lunches and dinners at Cafe Marco Davao, largely because the food range is so diverse. There are many types of food to choose from. There is a separate table for Halal dishes. Service is impeccable. I do not have to repeat my requests more than once. The staff has always been cheerful, efficient and reliable. Daghang... More

Was there several times, for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday specials. As stated already, the best food experience in Mindanao. Staff is more than friendly, never discuss if you ask something that is not on the buffet, .... And, important too, price/quality is outstanding. The place to go when you are in Davao.

This breakfast buffet is one of the best we have ever had in a hotel or elsewhere. The selection is seemingly endless with a combination of fruits, breads, western food, filipino food, and an omelette station. Some of the negative reviews seem to be a little picky to me in that yes this is a busy and popular place so... More

Sushi bar. Davao food. Grilled seafood to your liking. Excellent deserts. Flowing coffee. Need more variety.

Food was so good we wish every night would be morning. Sushi was delicious. I haven't tasted good filipino food for 5 years. I mean my dad cooks filipino food but you can really taste the difference. Me and my fiancé would definitely go back here. All the Staff were friendly. Keep on smiling!

This buffet use to be decent, long time ago, but i guess management doesn't care much about the food since they can make it back on the rooms. For the price of 1000 a person, regular price if you don't have a marco polo card that gives you %50 off. If not even worth it at 500. The selection is... More

The place is not as it used to. Food choices are limited and unimpressive. I hope they'd improve the quality of the food.

Is my 3rd morning here (ard 9am). I feel here is really messy everytime I come in. 1st, we never get a cleaned table with full settings whenever we were arranged to be seated. I notice they won't clean up until customers get in. Customers need to stand next to the table to wait for their cleanup everyday. U can... More
