After a month and a half in Davao, I was in need of familiar food. I found De Bonte Koe on TripAdvisor and thought I would give it a try with my Filipina wife. We were not disappointed.

Wow, how I like this place. Henni is really a strange and funny and nice guy. Always behind the staff training them. I wonder how he can stand the always changing employees. Phantastic food. Clean. Good toilets. Strong wifi.

I first started going to De Bonté Koe years ago, and thought then that it offered a varied, creative selection of European food (many with a Dutch influence), all carefully and lovingly prepared.

The well trained kitchen staff are one of the few in Davao who know how to cook fish, and the servers are a pleasure

Hmm! The food is delicious. The steak is the best you can find in Davao. Don't miss it! And the service is really the European way.

If you want to go on a culinary trip across Europe without the hassle of travelling, that's the place to go! The trip starts the moment you enter the restaurant. The decoration makes you feel welcome and home. Then you open the menu and start reading. Unlike other restaurants here each and every meal is described and often the historic... More

I took four clients along as I knew that not only would the food be great and varied enough for all palates, but the service quality and ambience would be relaxing and allow us to talk without overpowering music in a relaxing environment - as always we ere not disappointed
