This place is almost always fully booked specially at night! i loved the food here ... expect a little slow service though when its packed (besides all food are cooked fresh), the ambiance was perfect. As i said table reservations are a must!

My husband and I make sure we always have our yearly date at Claude's when we go home during the holidays. We always order their steak and it is really juicy, tender and oozing with flavor. I even ordered their steak well done since I am pregnant and it's still tender. Their french onion soup is also delicious but we... More

I visited Claude's because it was recommended by a good friend that they serve the best seafood and great tasting steaks. But overall the salad bar and the drinks are a refreshing twist. I'd come and visit again when i come back to Davao

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary out of town and our friend recommended this place for our dinner. Located at the heart of the city, this place is too easy to find.

Very nice old colonial style house. Had a late lunch here, and felt we were beamed into France in the '70s. Good service, solid menu and a very good, French of course, small wine list.

We came in around 10am, 30 minutes before their opening time, their supervisor was kind enough to let us in as we wanted to check out the place. We ordered a chocolate crepe and mango juice just for a mid-day snacks. There were beautiful watercolor paintings around which were also for sale, they complement well with the ambience.

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.
