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 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.

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...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.
