OK, so I was the only customer but the food was excellent, and service great. I had the Paris style scrabbled egg (with cavea), a great French Onion soup, and an Australian beef roulade, and a French apple tart

Thursday night wine tasting was a fun, friendly crowd. The sommelier was so approachable and friendly. He was a good host. The room at the back is small but it was a good way to meet people.

If you like wine and had enough of food stalls, this is a cozy spot with very friendly staff. They have a very large wine list by the bottle - prices seems to be comparable to elsewhere in George Town. There are only 3 by...More

Let's start with a couple of very small negatives. The place is not what you can call modern and up to date and the staff could know a little more about the menu when asked at point of order. To be honest, I had to...More
