Lovely cafe to sit outside and enjoy old Georgetown. Great service by the staff who kept us well hydrated with water without asking. Very impressed! Loved the vietnamese spring rolls and the sago pudding!

I visited this cafe several times. They do a great breakfast - 31RM for tea/coffee, juice and any breakfast main on the menu. For lunch/dinner I recommend their chicken pie or pad Thai. Quick service and the staff are friendly.

Just great! From the beginning to the end. Good colonial food and atmosphere. Greta place and an excellent service. We were here with friends who seem to be regular guests here, so this helped to get the full attention. I definitely come back here! When the cafe is great, then the hotel must be great too.

Breakfast was complimentary for hotel guests, and we loved it! There were lots of choices, so that we do not get bored. Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, muesli, cinnamon french toast (great for kids), croissant (not so great), bagels, nasi lemak (excellent choice) and roti prata (very crispy). The curry (served for nasi lemak and prata) was not too spicy,... More

Had lunch at the Mews, nice ambience, serving both western and local delicacies. It helps when the owner is an old friend and the servings are large ad tasty. There are both indoor and outdoor dining situated right in the middle of Penang's Heriage site. There are also accomodation for those interested in taking in the atmosphere. Traffic is a... More

The food in this very charming setting is well above average. The chicken satay with peanut butter sauce was abundant and the sauce was among the best peanut butter sauce I've ever tasted. The Malay dishes we both had were beautifully cooked and well presented. The service was excellent. The place itself was set in a well vegetated, small garden... More

Great service and beautiful food. Good place to go as a couple. Nice and quiet spot but only a stone throw from all the busy streets.

The place was not crowded and we didn't need to make any reservation. We ordered 2 appetizers, main course and a dessert. Costs us RM116, a little expensive for normal standard but worth your money. The chocolate cake with ice cream is heavenly! Cucur udang comes in a big portion, we couldn't finish it. Aglio Olio a little too greasy.... More

The service in Georgetown leaves a lot to be desired but it is always good here. We bring guests from UK here on a regular basis and have always had a good time, with great food. At weekends they also have live background singing in the courtyard area.
