Mother’s day celebration came a bit late for me because of hubby’s work commitment. To compensate this, my son and hubby took me to Ferringhi Garden Restauran. I truly fell in love with this picturesque ‘garden’ restaurant when we reached there.

 

This upmarket restaurant has beautiful landscaped garden that surrounds the whole building. The patio planted with lusty green plants, a mini water fall and several fish ponds fill the whole place with tranquility. Windows were not left bare but dotted with hanging plants. The beautiful landscape garden stretches from the main entrance all the way to the back of the building.

 

The restaurant has another upper floor section which is used to cater large functions. The stairway leading up to the hall is pleasantly decorated with small orchid potted plants.

The indoor area is tastefully decorated with Balinese furniture, decorative items and floral arrangements. The fresh flowers plus the warm lighting makes the place charming and cosy. Inside the building is a spacious sitting lounge and a bar.

We chose to sit in the patio. Its natural cool surroundings and the sound of the running water from the  miniwater fall puts everyone in a truly relaxing mood.


I could not resist taking a shot of this beautiful lamp on the table….

 

Flicking through the menu, I was delighted to see the homemade tomato bread. The bread was toasted slightly brown and yet soft on the inside. The Italian tomato spread was very tasty.

 

Hubby had the BBQ chicken kebab which was marinated with herbs and spices. My son went for the pan fried fish fillet of red snapper. As for myself, I ordered the Mongolian steak served with lots of onions and mushroom in a sizzling hot plate. Overall, all the dishes were delicious.

We couldn’t resist the desserts although we were quite full. We had the cheese cake with Movenpick strawberry ice-cream.

In addition, we also had the chocolate and cheese cake with Movenpick chocolate ice-cream. Both desserts came with nice presentation.


These two lovely porcelain door plaque caught my eye while I was on my way to the ladies.

Located in Batu Ferringhi, The Ferringhi Garden Restaurant with good ambiance is the ideal place to entertain friends and loved ones. It was awarded the cleanest and pleasant restaurant way back in 2005. The staffs were very attentive and friendly. We were truly amazed that there is such a charming and cosy restaurant tucked in the corner of Batu Ferringhi.
