A reader emailed me to ask for a recommendation. He was asking for a nice comfy restaurant here in Davao City where one could have a nice, private romantic dinner. Only one place came to mind: CLAUDE’S. Although there are a lot of good restaurants here in Davao City, Claude’s is the only one with a more private setting where one can dine in relative silence. The ambiance is perfect for intimate dinners.
But it’s not really the ambiance that people go to Claude’s for. It’s the sumptuous French food that they offer. They describe it as French Provencal and 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.
Claude’s is located at 29 Rizal Street, Paseo de Habana, Davao City. Their contact number is (6382) 222-4287.
