This was our first night in Davao. We arrived at the bus station and our friends picked us up and took us to Jack's Ridge.
At night, it looks great with the restaurant overlooking the lights of the city. A central monument where everybody seemed to want their picture taken, and even a pool down below the restaurant as well.
The place was not crowded as we had arrived a bit late. We eventually were seated right on the corner overlooking the city. Ambience - great.
We placed the order with the waiter who insisted he repeat it back to us three times. That turned out to be a waste of his and our time because he still forgot my meal. I ordered the BBQ'ed ribs.
The atmosphere was good, the view was sensational, we were back with friends and had an interesting chat, but the meal was just short of terrible. Worst ribs I have ever had, and in a country where it should be a specialty.
Never mind, maybe I can go back and order something different next time. In all fairness, the other three meals were just fine.

Not sure why but for the first time, the place was too crowded on a Friday. It was odd that they weren’t serving us service waters due to “water interruption” but they gave us free ice cubes when we asked for some. Nothing new to offer. Same old, same old.

I do not have much to say as i did not even try their food. We arrived at their place and we were waiting for almost 30min at the table, then a staff said we have to register first at the reception desk may be , not sure about it. We booked our table there and the woman asked us to wait for a while. May we spent 30min again we did not heard our name and there was persons who came after us, they got their table. It was a horrible night for me. But i give u thumb up for the place its so romantic.

A must visit in Davao City. The food is great, the staff are friendly, they serve large servings and the chef cooks great. The view is amazing as well. It can be cold at times because of the altitude so i recommend wearing thick clothing esp on cold months.
