The staff are friendly and helpful. I'd like to try all their food as they all looks great!! They always change their menu and you will get surprise every time you visit. The price is a little bit higher then other places but I think is worthwhile. Better make your reservation before you go. They not open for lunch.

Go to http://www.whatsonpenang.com/ for the full article to come out in November/December 2011. This little wine bar is in a lovely restored Heritage Row House and has the best atmosphere for a bar on Penang. Tommes, the co-owner and chef comes from an excellent culinary background and is truly some of the best food you will taste.

Ate here last night with friends. Service very friendly, and food was good quality and surprisingly good value. It's basically tapas, with a smaller section of main courses. Overall sense is that the food is an accompaniment for the wine (unusually the food part of the menu sits in the middle of the larger wine menu). But I think this... More

I went with friends to That Little Wine Bar: we had great food and fantastic wine; Louise and Thomas, the owners, were amazingly friendly and they made our evening one to remember. The place is lovely and intimate with great atmosphere and a good mix of people, both locals and foreigners. Penang is so charming and this place it's a... More

We were warmly welcomed as soon as we walked through the door! When they found out we were on our honeymoon we received complimentary drinks! The food here is amazing! It isn't just foreigners that come here but locals do too. An amazing experience which made our trip to Penang worthwhile. Thank you so much for a delightful experience!

I was visiting temples in the Georgetown area when I fortunately stumbled upon this gem of a wine bar/restaurant. After traveling throughout SE Asia for over 6 weeks, I was beyond surprised to find a cozy, warm, hip wine bar (similar to those I frequent in my NYC East Village neighborhood) situated in Penang, Malaysia. My plan was to stop... More

From approaching the building we were impressed...greeted by the manager who instantly showed it was more than a job but a passion. We had a great evening here feeling very indulgent after 6 weeks of backpacking around SE Asia and the food, cocktails, wine were exactly what we wished to share together and a little Wi-fi I confess. The staff... More

There are not many fine dining restaurants in Penang outside established hotels. Many visitors enjoy the street food in Penang which is one of the best in the world and like them, we take a break by visiting restaurants such as TLWB. It was our return visit as we enjoyed our first time there and this time around we felt... More

Walked in without a reservation - couldn't have been more welcomingly received. Really great, friendly service. Good food and wine, and reasonable prices. A great option when you're looking for a more sophisticated night out in Penang. Highly recommended.
