Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had the pleasure of savoring their nice burritos, which were a symphony of flavors. The elderflower-based cocktail was a refreshing twist, perfectly complementing of the burritos.The service was friendly staff who were attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The classic ambiance, with its warm...lighting and cozy seating, created a perfect setting.More

We were there in 2019 and it was great. After 5 years we came back to davao and decided to eat here again. I called them to make a reservation. She didnt understood my family name so she asked me to send her a message...with the reservation details. Spelling of my Family name was not a option. The restaurant was not the same anymore. Portions were small. Deserts like panna cotta or creme Brule too big. My Wife ordered the seafood Vongole. I was trying it as well. 30 minutes later, both of us had stomach pain and we went to the toilet. An older person outside which was watering the plants around the outside tables was not realy friendly. In general the dishes were not that well prepared like 5 years ago. The service was less professional. Children are listening to loud music, videos or games with the phones of the parents. Which was disturbing because it was really loud. The service personnel didnt commented anything. It seems like its normal. But for that kind of restaurant it should be. The Guest want to enjoy it, because hes paying there a high price compared to the normal davao price levels. Restaurant not worth it anymore. Sorry bondi & bourke :)More

We were very excited to have dinner there for the 2nd time and celebrate my partners birthday and we also stayed at the hotel as well.The first thing we noticed was the menu was very different than the one on their website which should be...updated because we were both looking forward to specific dishes and desserts but none of them were on the menu.I wanted a truffle chicken pasta which they didn't have so they made me a seafood pasta and substituted chicken but it was not great and the chicken was tough and instead of a nice pasta it was spaghetti and the sauce was overly seasoned.My partner ordered a seafood pasta that had clams etc but later back in our room she told me two of the clams tasted bad like there was dirt or some funky taste.I was also looking forward for their creme brulee which was so good last time but that also was not on the menu in the restaurant as it was online so instead they had a chocolate creme brulee which was ok but not as good as the traditional creme brulee and finally the breakfast included with the room stay was the best i ever had the first time but this time it wasn't.I ordered the eggs benedict again and not nearly as good nor were the potatoes served with it.More

It's been 2.5 years since my last visit to Bondi & Bourke Davao due to Covid restrictions to enter the country. I was fairly certain my visit would not be disappointing and I was right! The menu had changed as expected; however, there were as...many appetizers and entrées to select from as there were 2.5 years ago. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming along with servers who were friendly and attentive.More

Great place for a nice quiet dinner! The chicken skewers were excellent (wish we had ordered more!), the Lapu Lapu dish was great and the wagyu empanadas very tasty. The chicken parm could have been better if there was slice of ham on top and...if the red sauce wasn’t pizza sauce, but rather a solid red sauce. The setting is very nice, clean and well cared for. On the night we visited (Tuesday) there we no kids running around fortunately. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. Will definitely return with business associates again soon.More

Fish n chips ; fish unedible due to being too oily. Fish was tough (possibly was microwaved). Tartar sause no taste whatsoever. Burger was bloody inside after originally requesting it to be well done. Also tasteless. Bun was soggy on top and bottom. Took fish...home for my 3 dogs to eat and they also refused it. Its a shame as the restaurant has a potentially nice ambiance if it wasn't for the inattentive and staff showing attitude from the onset.More

I heard lots of good things and Bondi but never quite had the time to visit previously. With COVID restrictions in place, I have made an effort to adhere to the regulations and at the same time support local restaurants when practical... the visit to...Bondi was one such venue. As always to find out the heart of a good restaurant, you order off menu and at a time that is not easy... so as to get feel for all aspects of the business. It as 11.30 a.m on a Thursday and the restaurant was busy therefore it was time to sample their best steak, having heard from many friends how good it was at Bondi. I was impressed with the menu however asked them if its possible to meet either the chef or owner as I had question. My question was simple, what is the best steak you can offer. I was greeted by a super friendly Australian man named Pat, who introduced himself as both the chef and owner. I told Pat that I would like his best steak to which he offered me a cut from his personal stock, a gesture i was not expecting but truly grateful. Before long I was slicing into what is best described as an excellent cut of meat cooked perfectly and also rested to perfection. Pat and his team know the importance of timing when cooking steak, including resting. I enjoyed the steak so much, I came back with friends for brunch the following day. Again, great food, cooked perfectly and with simple prompt service by the wait staff. In summary, by far the best restaurant in Davao and despite COVID, Bondi know how to cook a good mealMore

I've been staying at the Bourke Hotel - seated right behind the restaurant - and had a brilliant steak dinner cooked by Patrick, the owner/chef. Bondi and Bourke is the finest restaurant in Davao. Period.

I wrote a review on this restaurant about two years ago and since I have returned many times. In my opinion, this remains the best place to eat in Davao City and the surrounding area. The staff have always been attentive, polite, and proficient in...carrying out their responsibilities. I will continue to visit and recommend this place. I would be astonished if you were disappointed with this place.More

Davao is not known as a culinary destination for a reason the city just doesn't exist as a 'destination' for well heeled travelers. That said, chef Patric and his team are dedicated to altering that. For the moment though let's just say that if you...find yourself here for a few days Bondi&Bourke is a must visit. I'm here for 5 facts and I've found myself visiting B&B 3 times. I'll admit the first time was an easy choice add I'd just arrived in Davao and it's attached to the Bourke hotel where I'm staying. But let's get to the food. The menu is smallish and easy to navigate. The food fresh tasting, nicely presented, and while not memorable like eating at Per Se, but for the price one is not left wanting. If you're here for a few days, you too might find yourself a repeat customer. Service was impeccable, the setting - an old home set in the middle of a small retail center - a pleasant repast. All in all, I'd have given Bondi & Bourke a 4.5 star rating most likely but the extra effort of owner/chef Patric tipped the scale.More

It's one of the best restaurants in Davao City where you enjoy fine dining. The food is really good with good service and nice ambience but a little bit expensive. I like their seabass fillet.

The reason why this restaurant is number 1 is because (in Australian) “it’s bloody good”. Definitely a cut above other restaurants in ambience, upmarket decor and impeccable service. The food matched. I had 1/2 dozen oysters kilpatrick and fish and chips, an Australian favourite. All...was outstanding in taste and extremely large servings. The tomato paste in the oysters could be toned down a little but still good. It’s a strange to find this place in a strange part of the city. If you are in Davao then search it out and give it a go.More
