“Italian”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Signature dishes were exceptional. Staff had a genuine warmth and this was fine dining at its best. A memorable last night dinner for our stay in Sabah.

“Good for special occasions”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 via mobile

It's not the best food in KK but atmosphere and staff were great. A little over priced for the meals and coffee weren't great at all. Would recommend if celebrating birthday or anniversary very romantic ambience.

“Delicious fine dining”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

After spending 2+ weeks in Malaysia we were craving some traditional western fine dining and Ferdinand's delivered.
There are no surprises in the dishes, they are just as they are described on the menu and they are served with a flourish - the staff here were fabulous. The only negative was the feeling that we were expected to purchase wine, and when we didn't the sommelier walked off in a huff. But the remaining service staff were fantastic. We even received a free photograph (of ourselves of course) to remember the night.
