I cannot be more delighted to have organised dinner with my best friend at Restaurant Blanc on the day we arrived in Penang. A beautiful and stylish restaurant located at the boutique Macalister Mansion hotel, it was not busy on a Thursday night and that...allowed us to enjoy a fully attentive & heart-warming service from Fara and the team. The 10 course Indulgence menu, possibly 11 if you add the Hokkaido scallop, was well-executed with fresh ingredients, pretty presentation and the cuttlefish & cauliflower was one of those unforgettable dishes. We were definitely filled by the end of our dinner service. If you are in Penang and looking for a fine dining experience, we would highly recommend it for a wholesome experience from food to service.More

The food was absolutely sensational - way better than the Michelin Star one in town. Absolutely exquisite and amazingly reasonably priced. The service was the same - thank you Fara and Emi - you were absolutely amazingly good at what you do !! Best degustation...in a long time. Simply exquisite !More

Had a fantastic meal with my aunt. It was her first fine dining experience and the team blew it away with their hospitality and service. We got the dégustation menu and a bottle of wine for a little celebration. The ambience was really nice with...light music, and the dishes were delectable and creative! Was my second time here and I will definitely be back again :)More

Beautifully crafted and delicious degustation menu, with excellent service by the staff who did not rush us even though the restaurant was having a quiet night. Very highly recommended for the exquisite cuisine.

Food was excellent, and Sheena and Jeffrey made the evening even better. It was a different menu from our last 2 visits with a mixture of European and Asian cuisines. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Meticulously prepared fine dining, loved everything about blanc. Myhessen, Sheena, Jeffrey were extremely attentive and introduced each course to us with detailed explanation. I love the amuse bouche, surprising combination of taste & well executed. Oyster with creme was as fresh as it could get....It is a true fine dining experience. We are glad that we celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Appreciative of the surprise anniversary petit cake that they offered us.More

Enjoyed my birthday treat here - the 8 course tasting menu. Very well presented, tasty food, and some courses were excellent - I loved the grouper and the pork jowl, hubby loved the dessert courses. Lovely ambience in an historic building. Thanks to Kate (great...knowledge about the history of the building), and Jeffrey for their friendly and professional service. Also nice to meet the chef, Benny!More
