We dined at the branch in SM Lanang. The food was delicious and fresh. Most probably since they have a ready to the source of fresh seafood in Davao. Highly recommended.

All the seafoods are served fresh. I like the sword fish kinilaw, tuna sinigang, grilled salmon belly, and real pomelo juice. Servings are big and reasonable price for the tourist.

Yummy tuna belly! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Everything that they serve were fresh and good for family sharing 😊 I must say that they also have the perfect durian shake! We tried their Leche flan 🍮 for dessert, and it was good! In my own opinion, I like to eat here again compared to Yellow Fin, although the latter one serve good food... More

I have been to Marina Tuna at SM Lanang Sky Garden and at km. 8, Barrio Pampanga, Davao City just this month in two separate occasions. But this review was only intended for the latter. When we arrived for dinner the canteen atmosphere of the place was hectic. But we were warmly welcomed by the waiter. Since we were 4... More

The place offers at least 10 ways to cook Tuna, and they exactly have that in their menu. I love the texture of their tuna, you can tell that it is sashimi-grade. The owner of the place also roams around checking if we are enjoying our food. I just love the "bihod" or what they call fertilized egg, really yummy.... More

It seems it is the "in" reataurant nowadays for it's authentic local fare, being visited by private and government officials from Manila! We were there with visitors on two occasions in October and chanced upon the President's brother with some of his classmates and foreign friends the first time and a Senator from Manila the second time. Indeed the food... More

The grilled jaw (panga) of tuna was simply fantastic. I say it was grilled to perfection, easily detached from the bone and juicy. i enjoyed my dinner together with some native vegetable recipes. I don't recommend their sushi. There are other better places to get them.

We got the platter and kinilaw and some Japanese tuna meal. This place is where you could get the freshest tuna in Davao. Place is big enough for large groups. Prices are worth it. It's easy to look for, it's well-known.

Our little group had dinner here on the 8th of October 2016. It was a great experience eating fresh seafoods (kilaw na tuna), inihaw na panga ng tuna, sinigang na ulo ng tuna, shrimps, crab omellete, and the tuna sisig. To die for is the pomelo shake/juice and I would swear by the tuna sisig which was quite heavenly. It... More
