I knew immediately that That Little Wine Bar (TLWB) was the place for me the minute I stepped through the glass doors. What a GEM of a place - what a lovely surprise! TLWB has captured my interest, customer loyalty, and love for great wine, delicious food and awesome service. This is a destination that can't be missed.

The appeal of TLWB is beyond just what is on offer. The comfort and care I receive as a regular customer, really makes TLWB my tree house... a place where I go to relax. The staff extends exceptional effort to ensure I am well looked after if I am alone...and when I have guests, they attend to our needs with warmth ...and without being obtrusive.

Chef Tommes - (a humble celebrity), has a knack for creating inspired fresh food that pairs well with the numerous wines on offer. He is truly talented ... try the french onion soup...the best I have ever tasted.

If you desire a cool location to whet your appetite - a place to step out of the heat of Penang, TLWB is where you want to be. You wont be disappointed...and you will find you will want to have a repeat experience. TLWB is just that memorable!

My husband and I were in Penang for a 10 day vacation in February '10 during Chinese New Year, so we had a chance to really see the island and try many different foodie spots. As Penang is know for it's great food. We became 'regulars' at That Little Wine Bar because we loved the food, the atmosphere and of course the wine. The chef/owner Tommes has worked in some really fantastic restaurants, including Jean Georges in Shanghai. My favorites were the black and white sesame seared tuna and the decadent chocolate cake.
