Amazing atmosphere to dine and wine, especially during the evening where the lighting is cozy and relaxed. Food is unique and excellent, great to find this type of restaurant in Georgetown. Will come again for drinks.

I am not really a wine person but i love the atmosphere at that little wine bar. It has a very tasteful design with very welcoming and cosy feeling. The service is really good with very informative waiter and waitress. It would be a great place if you are looking to hang out with friends with some great wine and... More

Nice ambience, service was good through taking our order, but we did not see our waiter again until we noticed him duck out the back door an hour later. He didn't check on the food,if we needed anything,or even to refill water. The pate was inedible--avoid it, duck breast quite good, croquet m. just so-so. Very long wait between starters... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our cafe. I believe this is your first ever on tripadvisor. We are honored. I believe, unlike you, most people have fully enjoyed eating at our place and have shared very positive feedbacks. I am sorry that your experience did not match your expectations. Especially the "croquet" which is... More

This cosy spot is definitely worth finding for truly delicious food using fresh local and imported specialities - and the best deal on great wine in town that we saw. House made sausages lived up to expectations and the smoked duck breast was perfect. Service was friendly and the chef charming!

Tucked behind the Gleneagles hospital, this little eatery has a nice ambiance, but that's where the compliments cease. Mediocre food, service with an attitude, small portions coupled with a high price. Don't get fooled...

Hello JW, thank you very much for your review. We get so many nice reviews so that your review is actually good for us. Makes us more believable - and you more unbelievable. Allegedly from HGK the prices here in Penang are too high for you. And you give our almost neighbour the highest rating ? Are you an actual... More

The passion of the chef and sommelier is the secret to the success of this little Gem in Penang. It is rare to get this quality of food and wine in an informal, friendly atmosphere that is made electric by their passion. They are not afraid to share their knowledge with customers as passion overcomes any fears of sharing your... More

Their breakfast menu is very extensive and the portion was bigger than what we could usually find in Penang's cafes. We highly recommend their homemade sausages which was by far the best sausages we have ever tasted.
