Great food

Had breakfast here each morning whilst staying at Lone Pine. Great food and great staff. Freshly cooked rotis at breakfast with curry or banana. Heaps of fresh fruit.

Not worth it. Food outside on the street tasted much better. I wouldn't pay to eat here again. The service from the staff really needs to be improved.

we stayed at the Lone Pine 4 years ago and loved both the hotel and the restaurant .... So we recently chose it for a celebration with friends! What a bad choice! The food was terrible, the drinks expensive, the service incompetent and the venue unpleasant! It was not surprising the restaurant was almost empty. I would suggest that for... More

I have never really had a good experience with this restaurant, but friends wanted to go and try it. What an absolute disgrace this restaurant is. Overpriced wine, bad food, bad service. Tuna Nicoise, with two very small pieces of seared tuna, the rest canned tuna and lots of badly cut up capsicum. Other meals, like the duck were also... More

We experience the junior staff been bullied by the senior staff in front of our own eyes. The way they treated her is really shocked us and it should not be happening for E&O standard.

1. Fans are not working properly. Those that work, rattle. 2. Flies flying everywhere - on food, table, and guests. 3. same array of food every day - imagine staying for a week. 4. too few workers - used wares not cleared quickly enough.

The Lone Pine hotel lives from mass tourism and it shows in this hotel restaurant unfortunately. Although nice location it seems the place dont take advantage of the fresh ingredients growing at their doorstep.

Visited the restaurant to try the tiffin set lunch but found out that it is only available during weekdays. Therefore we ordered the satay and char kueh teow (famous local cuisines). Unfortunately the char kueh teow was very average, while the satay sauce was sour and tasted a bit spoiled. Being a local, this is a bit sad because penang... More

Good service with a good choice of food and really friendly and helpful staff. Again, like the rest of this hotel a feel and look of the older 50's period.

Food variety was limited, unattractive and cold. Apart from the char koay teow that you can order from the cook to fry for you there and then. Coffee was horrible, stale and not freshly brew to be served
