Quite a few rodents , service was poor took more than 20 minutes to serve drinks and children were left crying for food as either took longer to bring food or forget their order

Reading the guidebooks you would be forgiven for avoiding this restaurant, based on the fact they say the main draw is only it's beautiful setting. This would be a mistake, the setting is indeed enchanting but this fantastic restaurant offers so much more. Whilst the menu appears to offer confusion we steered clear of any western food and focused on... More

If you are in penang, this place is a must visit. Inexpensive, clean and great variety. apart from the food there is a great variety of drinks available from freshly juiced fruit (even mangosteen) to soft drink beer wines and some spirits. apart from the above the venue has great noisy family atmosphere.

A lovely restaurant with attentive staff and top notch food - quite simply the best fish (black cod) I have ever tasted anywhere one world travels - cooked to perfection !! Friendly staff and welcoming without being over fussy like too many others in the area - good value as well

Excellent restaurant, I recommend it to everyone. Fantastic atmosphere in a beautiful garden. Nice music, perfect service and really nice food. I enjoyed the garden salad and a half baby lobster and my wife made an excellent choice with the cod fish. Creme bulé was our dessert. House wine was very decent too. Just a perfect dinner. Be careful with... More

The food was of high quality and presented with artistic flair and very generous servings. My favourite dessert was the Creme brulee its was to die for!!! We... More

We ate here twice during our stay and both times the food was absolutely delicious. The surroundings are beautiful with trees and ponds and at night is gorgeous. The staff were fantastic and understood our orders (taking out things we did not like) and all was correct when food arrived. Would definitely eat here again.

We had a coffee break at one of its subsidiary outlet, Ferringhi Coffee Garden during daytime and saw the same guy who served us working at this restaurant. He told us there's a cute bear museum cum shop on the upper level of this restaurant and welcomed us to take a look, albeit we are not dining here as we... More

Lovely setting, decor , surroundings. Lovely large area for large group parties at the back. Lovely gardens, the children enjoyed watching the fish and tadpoles. The food was lovely, price was tight for what you get. The staff were friendly but instead of saying they didn't understand my allergy request for no butter they kept acting like the understood and... More

The setting is magical - choice of inside or outside. We chose outside with all the exotic plants, waterfalls and great lighting. Service was great and the meals were good. Thoroughly enjoyed the night. We found it hard to find from walking along the beach, but from along the road it is directly opposite the Yahong Art Gallery.
