Went there for my wife's birthday but they were fully booked for a big group on a Tuesday night. I had tried a calling earlier that day but no answer. When we arrive greeted by some Pakistanis who were a bit rude. There were plenty of extra tables and the big group hadn't arrived yet. I don't know why they... More

I came here on the 22nd of October, with my very good friend to have our fine dining routine on the weekends. Once we parked our car, I can already see Benoit, the Maître D' of the restaurant, waiting at the entrance door to greet and welcome us. Parking spaces are spacious. Polite gestures were given once we entered. We... More

Dear Edward, Thank for your review. Glad you enjoyed your dinner at Garvys. We look forward to your next visit. Regarding the Lamb Rack, it is quite surprising, specially when I see the photo, that you found it overcooked. The meat seems very Rose, no more than medium. If you talking about the sides, maybe you are not used to... More

This place was recommended to us for a qualify fine dining experience so we booked ourselves in for our one night in Ipoh. The tasting menu was RM200 a head and we added a bottle each of white and red wine to accompany. The total came to around RM1500 for three people. It's a very good quality French restaurant that...

The food was good. The knowledge of staff was good. The advice about wines was good. The dining experoence was good, but overall it was marred by the Garvy in the Car park feel and the ambience lacked the quality of the food.

The food and service here is superb. Fine French cuisine done extremely well. The setting is a little confusing though - it's a cross between a sports bar (jersey's hung on the wall) and a fine dining restaurant (white clothed tables), and located in the carpark of a blood clinic. Ipoh is full of surprises.
