A lot of pizza parlors are now sprouting like mushrooms in Davao City. With lots in the competition, I find the Barrio Bistro in the edge of all. They offer Buy 1 Take 1 for all their home-made thin crust pizza from 2PM-10PM daily. Picobello and Mama Maria'z Pizzeria only offer from 2PM-5PM daily, with the former only on weekdays.
My brother treat the whole family to this restaurant on his second dine after his first which he heard from a radio advertisement. I say this restaurant has delicious pizzas I tasted plus the must-taste deliciously cooked Bolognese pasta. Never a miss!
They also offer breakfast meals (open 7AM daily), coffee (oh by the way do try their Irish Frappuccino and Strawberry Milkshake, perfect!) and will soon offer food delivery. They said they will soon be including in their menu Baby Back Ribs, so we will definitely go back to this place to try it. They also have free Wifi. A good place to meet with friends.
Barrio Bistro is located in Lacson St., Davao City. From McDonald's Bajada, just drive less than 200m straight the road and you'll find the restaurant.
Officially opened last May 11, 2011, the Green Coffee captured our interest of its relaxing garden ambiance. We hopped to this coffeeshop after dinner, a walk long along F. Torres St., Davao City, which we just saw by chance. I heard that this is the country's first air-conditioned outdoor garden, although I have not experienced that for we might have seated at the other corner. I love the comfort and calmness of the place. Though it just opened, I was surprised that the shop was full (knowing that a lot crowded in the newly opened Starbucks in Abreeza). Well I guess Davaoenos still patronize locally brewed coffee and locally born shops.
I remembered the setting in CoffeeCat with their bricked wall design in the counter. The coffeeshop is a self-serviced shop like Starbucks which you have to wait in line to get your coffee to your table. So if you're staying outside, you have to wait inside for your name to be called.
Rates for dine are: (exclusive of drinks)
When it comes to buffet, Davao City has lots to offer with delicious food at a very affordable price. My friends accidentally arrived at this restaurant as we thought it is still the place a grill restaurant once reside. We gave it a shot. And yes, Lassa Asyano, didn't fail to fill our stomach with Filipino and seafood dish. At Php275/pax, you get a dinner buffet with complimentary pineapple or four seasons juice drink. The restaurant is air-conditioned and has a spacious area.
A few of what they served are Hawaiian Chicken, Crispy Shrimps, Crabs, Pork in Brandy Peanut Sauce, Beef Kare-Kare, Sauteed shellfish, Tuna lumpia, Grilled Bangus, Maki, Sushi and Sashimi.

Nothing beats Krua Thai when it comes to authentic Thai dining. Food served will definitely leave a tasty sensation to your palate.

Exemplifying the mix of diverse traditions that make the city all the more attractive to tourists, Davao City is also positioning itself as the cyber city of Southern Philippines with the new Damosa Gateway Complex and IT Park.
Adding glitter to this upscale complex is the first Microtel Inn and Suites in Mindanao with 51 rooms and suites to choose from. This Davao hotel caters to the various needs of the busy executive, leisure tourist, and event organizer. Conveniently located within the city’s commercial hub, it is also highly accessible from the Davao International Airport. - microtel-davao
Great coffee + great place = FAGIOLI. The moment you step on foot on this coffeeshop, Fagioli welcomes you with its warm staff and comfortable ambiance perfect for a moment of relaxation. From brewed to frappe, Fagioli serves the best tasty coffee that will leave your tastebuds crave for more.
Their hot Fagioli is the best brewed coffee I tasted so far. If you prefer frappe, I recommend Tiramisu or Iced Irish Cream Mocha. The Aglio e Olio is also a must-try for a pasta. You might also want to try Sardinni or Tonno panini.
And Oh! The very comfy ambiance extends to their restroom. You may even put a hammock in it. ;)
A moment spent at Fagioli is worthy be it casual or business. The place is a few walks away from Microtel Inns and Suites in Damosa and a 2-minute drive from Grand Regal Hotel. Visit Fagioli at Lanang beside Kia Showroom and infront of Synnex Concentrix.
Twice in a row I came with friends and checked a newly opened KTV just in Madrazo beside BDO, infront of fruitstands. T'was a great place. The common area is comfy and sophisticated. I love the red walls and the white sofas. They match my preferences. Love reds, biased? well.. =D Oh, and the sound system is great too. Or maybe that's why I sound like a goddess that night. Shew! I was deceived! Well, kidding aside. The place was really nice. Although you might find it a bit of luxury on the rates. I'm a bit broke you know, so I don't spend much =D. If you love videoke, I recommend this place.
