Excellent food, well done. Great atmosphere and definitely a meal for a special occasion. Down side was the prices of the wines - nothing special about the wine list but the prices were over the top. However this did not affect the quality of the food or the service.

Food was outstanding, cooked at your table if needed, wide food selection and several small complimentary items that perfected the best night out. The... More

Really nice fine dining restaurant overlooking the pool, staff could not do enough for us. Extensive menu although expensive especially the wine. The lighting is rather dark but when they saw us using our iphone torches they brought small reading lights.

From the moment we walked in our Server knew our names. The atmosphere instantly takes over your senses: it's candle lit, with live string band playing tableside, and the smell of fresh bread like in a real Italian restaurant should. Pretty much the most romantic place I've ever been. I recommend, if it is a special occasion, or you just... More

We had the most romantic honeymoon dinner, complete with a seafood flambé soup, wagyu beef homemade pasta, succulent cod, topped off with a crepe flambé dessert. Service was expert and decor was special. If I return to kota kinabalu I will be sure to visit Ferdinand's again!

We went here last night and decided to go again a second time before our flight back into Vancouver, Canada. Where to start is the service - absolutely amazing in every sense! 1st night we were served by Alice and Nazrul; an experience to thank them for. We ordered the special set menu, beef wagyu and lobster tagiolini. Well, everyone... More
