Place is okay for dinner but not much during day time. Its just dining in the middle of a fish pond which gets quite smelly when its raining and there are lots of mosquitoes. Food is okay and price is okay too. Not so crowded too.

If you want an outdoor experience of dining... Gardena Fresca is a place to be. It is homey and the food is great. If you want to experience homestyle cooked with love Filipino food this place is great. I especially love their kinilaw (Raw fish) and Filipino desserts.

Been here many times, the food was good, though sometimes its a miss for me,and its like a secret restaurant or meeting place because it is secluded from the main highway.

Its a quiet place in Davao City, located in a village in Matina area. I have attended several occasions here and the outcome (food and set-up) was successful. The only cons of the place is that for a usual dining, there's limited choices of food, usually grilled ones. Lastly, their food's taste needs improvement.

We celebrated my son's birthday here and the place could probably accommodate a maximum of 150 people. It looks crowded if it were more than 150 people but they also have floating restaurant but it doesn't look safe to me though. Anyways, the staff are friendly and the boss helped me throughout the process. The food by the way...was better... More

Just a few hundred yards from the noise and bustle of NCCC Mall, is this lovely quiet place. It is in Morales village, also known as Coca-cola village. There is an eating area on a pontoon over a lake, and we enjoyed watching the birds whilst waiting for our food. For those interested, we saw 2 kinds of egret, moorhens,... More
