This restaurant must be among the best in KK. Loved the smoked Carpaccio and Cod fish. Our friends enjoyed the mushroom soup and beef cheek with rissoto as well. The Wagyu ravioli was not one of our favourites though. Wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. We had an eager but probably new waiter who ran of a couple of... More

I had a dinner with my family last Friday. First, the staff was very kind. And surely the steak and wine were excellent. I recommend this restaurant for you when you visit Sutera Harbour Resort.

Alot of resorts have their specialty restaurants which some dont really deliver. But this one does. I never have left a review before and this is my 1st. I honestly can recommend this. The staff are amazing and professional. The food also falls into this category.

We stumbled across this restaurant hidden on the second floor of the Magellan Hotel. While we thought the Italian menu looked good, we certainly didn't expect the spectacular food that we did. Noreen was our server and I tell you she (and the restaurant) were totally on point with their service! The view from the table was terrific as well!... More

Ferdinand's had the best food on property. Unfortunately the portion sizes were child sized. I was really disappointed in that. The ambiance is romantic and we were sat by the window with a view of the pool and ocean. At one point in the night a trio came to sing and were wonderful.

We had not anticipated eating at a restaurant at the hotel - and certainly did not expect to end up have a meal that we will long remember. I must first compliment the staff, in particular, Alice and Gerald, who welcomed us. They were excellent hosts and their attention to detail and genuine interest made our evening. The food was...
