Lonely Planet recommended this place, so I checked it out. Pros: Nice ambiance and lighting. The owner/host is very polite and courteous. They give you perfectly toasted warm bread, butter and some kind of a salsa-like dish that is mostly diced tomatoes, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. High variability in prices, you can spend 500-1200 pesos here based on how... More

Salad was very good... goat cheese salad. Very refreshing and satisfying. The combination of flavors is wonderful. The salsa served with the bread is exquisite. AVOID MEAT dishes. We ordered 2 servings of steak in a pastry shell (the beef wellington). We also ordered 2pcs of lamb. We asked that the steaks and lamb be medium well. It all came... More

Wine list are great, and the best part, reasonably price. There's no denying that food choices in the menu are great, but the BEST part is: Personalised & attentive service of the Chef and his gracious... More

There's no visiting Davao without dining at Claude's Le Cafe de Ville. It's the best French restaurant and probably the best of all the restaurants in the city. Their gourmet is really worth the price, however expensive. The staff are always ready to serve what you need. The new location deserves to be called de Ville, because it's in the... More

I met Claude in his old location in the 1990s when he first started. I told him I was from New Orleans and so he tried to impress me with various dishes and I was polite but frankly they were nothing compared to Cajun food. So many people raving in reviews here about this being an exemplary example of French... More

Mediterranean Cuisine.

Claude’s serves the best steaks in town. Their steaks are perfectly cooked to the diner’s specifications with a choice of pepper or mushroom sauce. It can also be served with either mashed potatoes, or the more popular choice, rice.

Other crowd-drawers are their appetizers, salads and soups. Some appetizers which deserve to be mentioned are their salmon pate and shrimp cocktail. The pate is served with lightly toasted sliced French bread while the cocktail is full of fresh shrimp smothered with light dressing and a helping of tomatoes and avocados. Their ceasar’s salad is also easily one of the best I’ve tasted in the city.
