“Pretty good, but Jack's Ridge is way better!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2010

We went to Dencio's after getting a 'consumable' coupon from nearby ZIp City Zipline. This is a great idea for a night out - a zipline and then dinner/drinks! All the local kids were parked on the hilltop hanging out by their cars and motorbikes. However the place was a little run down, the food ok, and generally not as much nice ambiance or selection as Jack's Ridge. It was neat to see but I probably won't be back!

“Great food and excellent service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2010

My friends and I dined at this place after riding a 350 meter zip line. Zipcity, the operator of the zip line is partnered with Dencio's Kamayan Hilltop. All Zipline customers get a coupon for one hundred pesos (roughly $2.5) consumable credit at three different restaurants, one of which was Dencio's. Since it was just a five minute walk from the zip line, we decided to have lunch here.

The place is set up on a hill so the dining area was divided into different sections. A souvenir shop is by the entrance, after which there was a set of stairs to the main dining hall. There were several cottages on the hillside for those who preferred it, but my friends and I decided to stick to the main area, which had a great view of Davao City from all sides.

Our waiter, Giovanni, was a very accommodating guy. Got all our orders right and out promptly, and boy, did we order a lot! He was very attentive and seemed to anticipate our every need, from water to table napkins. A few of the girls decided to have fun and teased/flirted Giovanni, which made him blush a few times, but he was good-natured about it and gamely posed for pictures with us after lunch. Awesome service!

The food was great. For the price we paid, we sure got a deal! There were barbecue platters, a vegetable dish, two kinds of soup, all the rice we could eat and never-ending supply of cool iced tea. What a feast! We all could barely stand up after because our bellies were on the verge of bursting.

I definitely recommend this place for anyone wanting excellent food and service at very reasonable cost.

“Dencio's Kamayan”

Dencio's Kamayan
Diversion Road
Maa

Despite being a Franchised Restaurant, they serve good, honest, authentic local food.

Beats anything Jack's Ridge can come up with.
