“It really needs a MAKEOVER!!”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Basically a great Deli with great stuff,that you can not find any were else!Well,now there is S&R in Davao,so some of the GOOD stuff there is now also available in S&R! The restaurants food was GOOD QUALITY and tasty food!The presentation was a bit BORING! Service was a little better than average for this type of restaurant! And LAST but not least the place really needs a makeover! Come on Swiss Deli, with all those outlets and places you sell your products to,you have got to UPGRADE your Restaurant! A little paint,some new lighting fixtures,new upholstery and PLEASE UPDATE your bathroom,toilet or CR,that's how they call it here in the Philippines! You'll see,this Investment will pay off! Thank you!

“Wonderful deli shop, decent food”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

First of all i want to say that Swiss Deli is an absolute godsent in Davao, their deli shop being the only place where you can find quality European (and local) delicacies in this part of the world, some of it at a fraction of the price you'd pay for the same quality in Europe.
Now for the food in the restaurant (i went to the Matina branch). It's simple, unpretentious Pan-European food, nothing outstanding but inexpensive, tasty and good value.
We tried the Ravioli which were okay, a nice seafood risotto, fish terrine and very tasty French onion soup. All of this with a bottle of nice Chilean white came to less than 1500 Php, a real steal, especially for wines, which you can buy at the deli shop and consume for a corkage of only 150 Php.
Good service by Filipino standards, but the ambiance is more canteen than cozy restaurant.

“A good place to enjoy sausages or lamb”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

This place is always part of the intinerary when visiting Davao and have never been disappointed. A good place to go to get a break and have a good European meal with wine and/or something cold to drink.
Absolutely recommended and they have a well equipped Deli and wine cellar in addition to the restaurant

“Once in a while i need....”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

...European food: Schnitzel. Bratwurst sausage. Bratkartoffeln fried potatoes.

Don't get me wrong. I love Philippino food (except for one: Balut! Google it if you don't know it), I love rice, I love fresh fish&pusit right from the sea.
But once in a while I spoil myself and see the Swiss Deli in Damosa@DavaoCity.

Good food.
Good beverages. From wine to beer to fresh brewed coffee.
Good cooking.
Good staff. Attentative. Friendly. Always trying to read my mind before I ask something.

A good place to go.
Open from 10am to 10 pm.
Good parking outside.
Full AC.
