If you are looking for great comfort food then Primo is the right place for you. I especially love their pizza and sizzling tendon that melts right in your mouth. They have a variety of food such as burgers, pastas, and the very delicious tuna dishes that is a must when in Davao. The price of their food ranges from... More

I will rate 5 kung magkaroon na sila ng Coffee. Matagal nang sira ang machine. Sana maibalik na ang coffee nyo kasi dyan ang meet-up namin ng mga clients ko at suppliers. Hindi ko naman sila pwedeng alukin ng beer. I love the food, the ambiance and the staff, especially NESTOR, he is good and attentive, polite too.

The pizza was great, also ordered Fish and chips but the fish was too... More

Their food while drinking or "pulutan" are all great. Prices are very reasonable and servers are very attentive. Downside is since this is Davao, no smoking even outside the bar.

This is one of my new favorites because of their really tasty Filipino food, soups& salads, and desserts. It has a pub ambiance but you can order a complete meal and your favorite beverage. Ideal for meeting place with networks and friends. Price is mid-range, staff are courteous and accommodating; and highly accessible for public transportation. a CS favorite place... More

spent 2,500 here and it's not worth it. thin, dry, and hard grilled pork chop. pesto pasta swimming in oil (not even sure if they're using olive oil). tasteless chef salad. Simple put, I was very disappointed.
