“Euro Flair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Great little, charming place that offers a nice break from Malay fare. I started with the full body house red which was a little disappointing, so we ordered an Argentian reserve bottle, which was spot on and well priced. We started with a sesame tuna app that was great and a white asparagus salad that would have been better if it hadn't been cooked so long as it was just a bit too mushy. The beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection and had a wonderful sauce to complement it, as well as the mashed yams. The beef tasted a bit different than what I am used to in the US, but it was still good. Dessert was perfect, vanilla ice cream with prunes and an amazing sauce. One of the highlights of the experience was talking with James, the manager. He was very generous with his time and patiently answered all of our inquiries. He gave us some wonderful tips for our visit which greatly enhanced our stay.

“Simply Great Food, Wine & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

We visited That Little Wine Bar a few times whilst on holiday from the UK. The ambience is calm and the chairs are the most comfortable I can remember of any restaurant anywhere - we never wanted to leave!

There is an extensive and varied wine list to suit all tastes and the recommendations for pairing wine with food from the staff were most helpful. The pork tenderloin is something I would recommend anyone to try and we were impressed by the pigs cheek special - so beautifully tender.

The little details have been thoughtfully remembered here and Penang's TV chef Tommes clearly expresses his creativity through the menu. It's not in the centre of Georgetown, but for those visiting Penang you won't regret a visit to this delightful place.

“Fabulous!”

We love That Little Wine Bar: chilled and full of flavour, just like a good wine.
Loved the "Rigatoni with duck rillettes", it was out of this world!
Our favourite place!
