Cafe Marco Davao is our family's favorite place to celebrate memorable occasions like birthdays, anniversaries,graduation, Christmas , New Year and just recently, we celebrated mother's day here. Although there are so many restaurants in Davao City, we still consider Cafe Marco as our favorite not only because of its wide selection of foods but also because their food really tastes... More

Our room had breakfast included in Cafe Marco. I'm a vegan and I found that the food had enough for a vegan or vegetarian, such as cereal, rice meals, maki, soy milk, fruits, jams, etc. The space is very large and ambiance is good. The staff is very helpful when something special is needed. They even once prepared for me... More

You can't go wrong dining here. The buffet spread is amazing and food is really good. Not so crowded and not "masa" unlike other buffet restaurants. The staff are cool and friendly. If you have extra budget you have to dine here. Their lunch is 799/pax and 1199/pax for dinner, but for dinner you get unlimited draft beer and oh-so-good... More

Offers a wide selection of food. Fast refill. I love their sushi area and very fresh tuna, fresh juices and delicious breakfast. Friendly employees. Nice high chair for babies and they also provide plastic utensils for my son.

Cafe marco is a buffet place that offers a lot of different choices for food. Sadly, all (yes literally all) of the food is cold and very mediocre. (this applies to both breakfast and dinner!!) For the amount you spend here for a single person, you can eat great tasting food at other places ( e.g. Swiss Deli). Although the... More

A very good selection and variety of food. All very well prepared from fresh raw materials. A good buffet like this needs time and patience. Visit the various stations with a new plate and enjoys small portions each time. It is a pity to see many locals rushing to fill up a mountain of rice and various foods on the... More

The breakfast buffet here is excellent - good value compared to the food choices available. The local produce of vegetables and fruits are well represented here. They even have a section for halal food for our muslim visitors. Great tasting 5 star chef prepared choices. Recommended.

I spent many breakfasts, lunches and dinners at Cafe Marco Davao, largely because the food range is so diverse. There are many types of food to choose from. There is a separate table for Halal dishes. Service is impeccable. I do not have to repeat my requests more than once. The staff has always been cheerful, efficient and reliable. Daghang... More

Was there several times, for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday specials. As stated already, the best food experience in Mindanao. Staff is more than friendly, never discuss if you ask something that is not on the buffet, .... And, important too, price/quality is outstanding. The place to go when you are in Davao.
