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.

Dinner at the Food Garden was a frustrating affair. Lots of nice friendly staff not knowing how to wait on They messed up our starter orders Main courses where bland and of poor quality The rear room at he back however is absolutely stunning. Such a pity the food and service matched didn't match the decor! Shame

What a great place. Service was excellent and so was the food. My wife and I went there on numerous nights when we were there and never regretted it. Well worth the money.

No doubt this is one of my favourite restaurant in Penang. The interior has a very tastefull and nicely done setting. Very relaxing and pretty place for a glass of red wine and some light snack. I will suggest to go for western food compare to the local chinese cuisine. Having chinese food at Ferringhi Garden is like having Chinese... More

We visited this restaurant after reading earlier tripadvidor reviews and we're glad we did. It's an oasis of plants with both indoor and outdoor dining. We chose a table near one of the water features but close enough to benefit from the air conditioning. We decided to share a prawn cocktail with garlic and tomato bread on the side -... More

Very nice restaurant with excellent service. A little more expensive than some others in the area but still reasonable and the service was very good. We shared a few curries that were brilliant.

Eating at this restaurant was really enjoyable. The variety of dishes is excellent and their chef knows how to cook fish really well. Wide choice of good local dishes; do try their char kway teoh. If it isn't raining, it's delightful to be able to sit outside in the garden in the evening. Service was good every time we went.... More

Loved this restaurant - great atmosphere, excellent surroundings and lovely, tasty food. I would agree with other reviewers that prices are on the high side for Penang but I believe "we get what we pay for" and this is certainly true here. We had a such a wonderful meal in a great setting. The gardens were beautiful and the service... More
