We had a great night at That Little Wine Bar in Georegetown, Penang quite by chance. We did not have a booking but Louise found us a spot. Little did we know it was a Special Food Innovation night accompanied by matched wines from Gascony. Chef Tommes treated us to Poached Oyster in a Cloud, a Carpaccio of Red &... More

Everytime I visit Georgetown I try to visit this delightful restaurant. The service is wonderful and there is always something interesting and tasty on the menu. You can always expect a great wine will be recommended. I heartily recommend "That Little Wine Bar"!

A couple of glasses of the house white (Cabernet Sauvignon) and the Pork Neck Steak were very decent, plus an interesting conversation with the sommelier. The wine was good value and served at exactly the right temperature, and the pork dish had lots of different flavours and altho the pork steak was tough to the knife, it was not chewy.

A friend & I each enjoyed a good glass of wine plus a tray of assorted cheeses at the Little Wine Bar while in George Town one evening. As the evening was very sultry, we stayed indoors in the refreshingly air conditioned atmosphere.

The Little Wine Bar serves their red wines by the glass at room temperature which in Penang is much too warm. We also weren't fans of their selections for wines by the glass. Now, the food. We had the Baked Camembert RM28, Seared Scallops RM28, French Onion Soup RM24, and my favorite, the Pork Neck Steak RM42 (YMMMMM). Red wine... More

We were new to Penang and Georgetown when we came across That Little Wine Bar. We went for their Thursday evening wine tasting, stayed for dinner and have been back weekly ever since. First up, the people are lovely. Chef Tommes will talk about food and his experiences around the world at the drop of a hat and it's never... More

Seeing the place so empty on a Friday night did make me wonder!! The wait staff were very nice if a little in attentive. We ordered starters which were ok. Mains were less so.... More

Hello there, you were right - I tasted the cake and it was not up to our standard. We threw it away, took it off the menu for that night and made a new one in the morning. We are terribly sorry for that and apologise. These things happen sometimes in a restaurant but of course shouldn't. We try to... More

One of my favourite to enjoy intimate evening or special occasion for good food and wines. The duck breast and croquets are to die for and definitely worth coming back.

Amazing atmosphere to dine and wine, especially during the evening where the lighting is cozy and relaxed. Food is unique and excellent, great to find this type of restaurant in Georgetown. Will come again for drinks.

I am not really a wine person but i love the atmosphere at that little wine bar. It has a very tasteful design with very welcoming and cosy feeling. The service is really good with very informative waiter and waitress. It would be a great place if you are looking to hang out with friends with some great wine and... More
