This is a good Hotel cafe. The ambiance is nice and the food is good. This is the sort of place you would expect from Marco Polo. The service is quiet good and as expected the pricing is Marco Polo.

With so many buffet restos in the city, Cafe Marco still stands out. Food is consistently good. Im no breakfast person but their breakfast is something i wouldn't mind waking up early for. The Japanese spread is delectable!

Buffet dining experience in Davao will never be complete without trying CafeMarco. Choices are varied and it can be enjoyed by all ages, from a toddler client to senior citizen. Best for family gatherings and celebrations. I enjoyed the meat and fish dish selections. Kids love the lechon, pasta, and the desserts. Ambiance and lighting, excellent. Staff courteous and very attentive. Price reasonable.

My wife and i visited the evening buffet at cafe marco. We left full, but underwhelmed.
When i first arrived i was suprised to see a sushi bar with all the fixings but upon closer inspection i would be passing on this section tonight. The tuna had the consistincy of a wet towel and the look of frozen tomato slices. The sauces on the maki selection had already formed a dry rindy texture about it. It looked as if they had held that sushi/sashimi for quite a while, well after the visual presentation has worn. If the sauce on a raw fish has turned to a skin, i start to wonder about the safety of that raw fish sitting at room temp for hours.
My water glass had a thick chocolate thumb print on it. I didnt complain, just wiped it off.
The salad bar had a large selection of veggies to build your own, though i was hoping for at least a couple pre made salads that i could scoop and enjoy i.e niçoise, fattoush, ceasar, seafood ...
The dessert selection was decent but there were numerous cake trays left behind by guests that could have been easily cleaned up. The ice cream bar had four selections, though each one was mixed with all the others due to not changing the scoop water.
There was also an overly large amount of store bought kids candy at the dessert bar, which screams more of a family reunion atomosphere than a fancy hotel buffet.
Anyway, with that ugliness aside, the lechon was delicious and crispy, and some of the main hot dishes filled me up. We had a good time, we've seen much better and much worse for the price.
The staff was attentive and cheerful. Overall, the buffet needs better management and it could be a success.
