“Restaurant of 5 stars hotel?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant in the evening of the first day we arrived KK. Excited and had high expectation but our comment was: good place, nice staffs but average food. Carpaccio, not much to write about but to eat it with the cheese ice-cream on top was just weird. Roasted chicken salad, no olive oil no seasoning and no taste. My husband ordered quail as main dish, however the quail was very dry. My dish was a seafood linguini, but the chef had put too much tomato paste in it. So far it was disappointing as we were expecting nice food of 5 stars hotel quality. The restaurant was the best restaurant in Malaysia in 2002 but obviously it couldn't catch up anymore.

“Yumm”

Great meal and reasonably priced just be aware of wine prices if ordering. We had a 3 course meal and were happy with every course, great flavour and potions were just right. High dinning but not price.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

In our 2 week stay we ate here at least 4 nights. The food was very good (was probably the best lasagne I have ever eaten!!). The restaurant décor is beautiful & the standard of service was very good. The wine list is extensive though some is a little pricey. Still worth a visit.

Great and professional service. Food was nice. Restaurant has a nice outside area (terrace) which is much better and more pleasant than inside area.
