While this place is expensive, it is really tasty and the table service is amazing. I think it’s a perfect place for special occasions. We don’t normally eat at restaurants like this but it’s a nice treat every once and a while!More

Ambiance was cozy, but not photo friendly. We had a dinner set and it was surprisingly good. The chicken was moist, tender, and the tiramisu was very balanced. But the highlight of this place has to be the warm Sabahan hospitality smiles.More

I have been to Ferdinand's many times and this has never happened. Perhaps it was staff in training and you should have asked for the Supervisor. We generally have to ask for the bill
