A lovely find off the side of a road that has a refurbished row of shophouses. The restaurant has a certain old world charm. On to the more important thing....the food was EXCELLENT and the portions were robust. The wine list was not too bad and dessert was heavenly. A great break from eating local food. One can only eat... More

This was a bad deal! We were going to meet friends for a Thursday night wine tasting and decided to start w a quick bit. My selection was Ravioli, but got the most uninteresting w tasteless Ravioli swimming in butter; at MYR 38 this was unacceptable. The wine tasting was no better, 3 undrinkable wines on show. Just poor!

Went for dinner and drinks. Wanted to seat outside as we're smokers but it was too hot. Orders the appetizers, pizza and a bottle of wine. Food was great, wine selection was good. It was above expectation. Enjoyed the beef carpaccio, baked camembert and the chicken pate. The only little issue we had was communicating with the foreign waiter, it... More

We ordered the French onion soup, mushroom quiche and roast duck with black cherry sauce. The highlight was the duck.it was very well prepared and it just melts in your mouth. The macadamia potato mash was divine. The onion soup I found it a little acidic and sour. The mushroom quiche was delicious and the pastry well made. For dessert... More

If you love to drink wine, don't miss this restaurant. They serve good wine. Chef Tommes is very friendly. My husband love their bread. I personally like their Crusted Beef tenderloin & Asparagus cream soup. And of course we love their wine!

Nice food and wine. Service was great too! A bit pricey and they don't serve beer or whiskey. We drank them out of port too! :)

I chose to visit this bar based on previous reviews, place in the review list and proximity to where I was staying. All I can say is that the wine is better than the food which was uninspiring. There are plenty of other eateries in the area.
