Typical Chinese restaurant with very reasonable prices. The service is fast and the food is very good. Frequently you need to wait before being seated because of the many patrons.

Karlo's Coffee Station at Jack's Ridge photo by: Manny 
Located at the top of Shrine Hills in Matina, this place offers a spectacular view of the city, Davao Gulf and even Samal Island. Very nice place to eat especially at night, with cool breeze and bright twinkling city lights for a view. Specializes in local Filipino delicacies like sinigang, lechon, grilled tuna, barbeque chicken, spare ribs, etc. The order takes up to 30 minutes to be served but it is worth the wait.

Adjacent to the restaurant is Kai's, a bar featuring live bands almost nightly and Karlo's Coffee Station, a lovely coffee shop.

Luz Kinilaw

Luz Kinilaw is authentic Davao cuisine! It's a seaside restaurant serving no-frills inihaw na panga (roast jaw of yellow fin tuna) and kinilaw (local version of the Japanese sashimi - bite-size chunks of raw fish marinated in vinegar with local vegetables) . The place is pretty bare and simple but the food more than makes up for the place, and the prices are very reasonable. If absorbing the local culture is your thing, then this is the ultimate Davao food trip for you!
