This restaurant is set inside the large Sutera Harbour Resort in KK and I wasn't sure what quite to expect. The restaurant was highly rated on Trip Advisor so we decided to try and it was a real treat. The food is Italian so you obviously don't come here for the 'Borneo experience' but it was a lovely evening. We... More

May be the best service I experienced in 7 years in Malaysia, I really enjoyed the food and the vine list is very good. The prices are correct , and the ambiance is first-class . I will return, thanks for the great dinner and the photo souvenir.

We enjoyed the California red Berringer wine, scallops, rock lobster, salmon, chicken and loved the chocolate pudding. The food was just effect and delicious. We had a table with the pool view and the staff were very friendly

Ferdinand's provided a very enjoyable dining experience. It is quite upscale for a resort area. The atmosphere is lovely and the trio that played during dinner added to the ambiance. The food was delicious, the service was attentive without being intrusive and all in all I can see why it is rated number one in Kota Kinabalu. That said, it... More

As it is the no 1 ranking in Sabah and we just stayed in Sutera, we went there for dinner. We chose the swimming pool view table. Good view. There is live band. As we were the only customer when we came there at around 9pm, the live band kept staying and play music in front of our table. The... More

we thought we would try Ferdinand's whilst we were staying at The Magellan Club, Sutera Harbour Resort as it came highly recommended, and we were not dissappointed. Every course was special but the "zuppe" cooked at the table, which 3 out of the 4 of us had, was one of the best I have ever had. Staff excellent, a beautiful... More

We went to this restaurant for my birthday while staying at Sutera Harbour. Although we found the food sensational, there was very little atmosphere as most of the evening we were the only two people in the place. We had a lovely table overlooking the pool and the staff were attentive, but possibly overattentive as it did start to get... More

Whilst the food at Ferdinand's was delicious (we chose the set menu and had 5 wonderful courses to try, including sorbet course), what sets it apart is the atmosphere and staff. My friend and I went here for a birthday meal and the staff were all friendly and attentive. There was a brilliant acoustic band playing covers, the decor is... More

Nice food in a beautiful environment. They claim to give a free meal for anyone who has their birthday, but this is somehow dribbled away

Really attentive over the top experience by the team at Ferdinands. I have dined her on numerous occasions the last few months while on business and the management team (Mr. Rosandy Mizan) truly understands how to delivery excellent service. Very well done!
