Always love a rustic place and this is just perfect. Menu is also not intimidating. Their many selection is just perfect for every craving :) ❤️ I love their Pizza Mexicana -- chicken, nachos, corn and jalapeño

Seems you're the only one so far to have that opinion. I don't know your diet nor what you ordered, but I'm sorry we couldn't meet your standard. Besides, it's called EatCafe. A cafe where you also eat, not restaurant. Thank you for your review. We may change the menu to salads only. No dressing. More

De Boerderij is a great place to meet friends or just hang out at the bar with the friendly staff. They have free WIFI, an extensive menu, and ice cold beer. A lot of locals come here for the burgers, perhaps I am a bit picky I think they are just okay, however, for the prices and selection, I cannot... More

After living in Davao City for two years I finally visited this resto bar last Tuesday. I was surprised by the welcome reception, the good company and the best burger I've had in years. A haven for foreigners in a city in which there is few. I will be back.

I've been there many times a few years ago and on my recent visit was glad to see it's still going strong. The menu is diverse and very affordable and the service excellent. Quality food served at excellent prices, with a bent for European. The pizza is superb and you can have numerous combinations...just tick the boxes on the order... More

This is the most coziest restaurant in the city. The portions are big and it's worth the buck. You also need to understand that your order here might take long to cook. You will be warned anyway since there's a big sign that says so.

A warm, rustic bar owned by a Dutchman. Can be hard to find. The map location currently is incorrect. Google Maps has it plotted right, so you could use that on your phone to find it. Driving away from Davao on Gen MacArthur Highway towards Toril. Cross the river in the center of Davao, pass NCCC mall on the right,... More

Well sometimes they may seem a bit slow but with the nice atmosphere and friendly staff, you'll get your drink first and just have to wait for the one and only cook to prepare something very tasty. I like the choices like the meatballs which can foul you if you order Italian meatballs cause this is really spaghetti; burgers and... More

Description
In Netherlands we call it an "Eet-Cafe" (eat-cafe). A bar-type resto. Good food, but not posh fine dining. Hamburgers are our specialty, although steak is appreciated too. Our pizza's have proven to be a great success for dine-in, or for take-out on a plate-to-keep, as well. Pies are good also. Generally the food is international. Cozy interior with bar and limited number of tables. Our clientele is a mix of local and foreign origin. The staff is all female. The background music played ranges from oldies to modern with or without video. Check it out to see if it may be a favorite hangout for you. You are most welcome.Hope to see you there.Open from 11am - 02am. Smoking is not allowed in most of Davao City and alcohol is banned from 01am - 08am. Unfortunate things we have to deal with in life. Don't let it discourage you from visiting and enjoying all other good things.
