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,...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.

This cosy spot is definitely worth finding for truly delicious food using fresh local and imported specialities - and the best deal on great wine in town that we saw. House made sausages lived up to expectations and the smoked duck breast was perfect. Service...More
