We always go to this restaurant when we visit Davao. Call to make a reservation because the online system doesn't seem to work. We got seats today anyway. We enjoy the ishikaya stone grill. Pick one of their makis, too.

The WHite House has a good reputation in Davao however when we went for lunch it was very disappointing. The menu reads quite nicely, fusion of various cuisines, but the actual food is mediocre. The pasta was way too salty, the tuna ceviche not a proper ceviche, the Japanese inspired fish and chips far from great, the signature burger disappointing.... More

we had a college mini reunion and we spent it at Whitehouse restaurant. The ambiance is classic and elegant, it is kind of romantic place also but for our group, as we are loud and talkative, we didn't much enjoy the place, well the food taste good too. Not just a typicla place for barkadas who loves to shares stories... More

Reputation and price is so overrated. Arranged for a dinner symposium of 45 doctors and their screen is not even straight, the mic and speaker aren't working well and worst their waiters are the RUDEST! Jollibee and McDonalds have better servers! Just come here for pictures or coffee maybe.

Our dining experience in White House was great! Very good service and high quality dish. I love their Kani Salad. I am now craving for one. Their dishes are a fusion of Japanese and French cuisine. It is a fine dining restaurant so be guided with the dress code, though I think they are not strict with what you need... More

Firstly, the building. It is an old colonial house that has been converted into a Japanese Fusion restaurant. The kitchen is unusually spacious and food preparation can be viewed from the dining area. Secondly, the food. Excellent and exquisitely prepared and presented. A real delight. NB. my wife is a vegetarian and even she was well catered for with the... More
