The breakfast was continental buffet with waiter service menu.
We only dined there once in the evening as we found the place too dark.

We had read the mixed reviews of this restaurant but decided to give it a chance. In fact we both had delicious dinners - the risotto is to be recommended and is in fact no more expensive than meals in the other Rasa Ria restaurants. The same can't be said of the pricey (but tasty) mixed sea food dish and the wine is also expensive. We enjoyed our meal a lot and the overall price doesn't need to be more than the other restaurants - it just depends what you order!

Quick visit to Sabah on business...taken to Coast for dinner. While the setting is lovely, romantic and sophisticated, we were all disappointed by the quality of the food and poor training of the staff.
The menu was limited, most items tried to have as many flavours as possible ... which didn't work in the dishes we tried.. Fusion is an art, a gentle balance of flavours which synergises into an awesome offering. Here however we found more enthusiasm than understanding of the art.

The tenderloin was dry and 'thready' , almost as if it had been poached in advance, the risotto flavoursome but cooked too quickly so that the grains were full and not the creamy consistency of a good risotto. The chocolate pudding was solid in the middle which was the final straw. The pasta though was delicious.
The staff were polite and friendly but spoke poor English and couldn't recommend dishes. They had poor knowledge of the dishes and couldn't answer questions about them.
Very disappointing but unfortunately quite the typical 5 star hotel restaurant.
And by the way, beware when you go to the loo. There is an indoor 'garden' of sorts, definitely not what you want when you are at your most vulnerable in the middle of the rainforest! Don't know who was more frightened when I ran out of the first cubicle, me or the lizard!

Setting is great. Being adjacent to the beach in a 5 star hotel, the ambience is instantly relaxed yet not too casual or noisy. Best of all it is air-conditioned. Heaven after coming in from the scorching beach sun! Buffet food is so-so as is common with buffet food. Went there for a wedding reception once. They managed to create a pretty and romantic event although the area was not large.
