Hi , I visited your place twice and i cant forget the linzer Torte without cream dish, I'm a fan of Swiss and German dish, and this place suits me, I love it. My boyfriend mentioned your restaurent before, and he told me you have...cheese fondue, and we decided to find a day to drop by. My my my, that cheese fondue and linzer torte was delicious, it was beyond my expectation. You have the best swiss and german dish ever, as a local Penangite who love German and Swiss food , and having a hard time finding a Swiss Cafe. This place is literally serves delicious Swiss and German Food, its pricey but definatly worth it, I would like to go for another round 4 or even 5 in few months time.More

A great night out at Edelweiss. Probably the best Schnitzel I had for years (Being an Austrian) this is really authentic. German beers, and if you are a nice guy ask for Schnaps. The place has been visited from royalties to movie stars, but my...hero is the current Swiss owner, who runs the cafe with passion and love.More

We had a wonderful dinner here. My wife had gluten-free beef rendang on austrian-swiss rosti (a great fusion idea!), and I had Malay-Indo style Soto Chicken soup. Both were terrific. The huge gravity driven clock became a point of fascinating conversation with the manager (owner?)....We definitely like this resto.More

My friends and I were casually exploring Armenian Street on a Saturday afternoon. The weather is so hot and we felt hungry + drained after the exploring. There were various hipster cafes around but mostly selling desserts. We wanted something filling. Somehow we found this...cafe although the sign shows alcoholic drinks, they do serve simple foods to keep you going. We ordered Plain fries, 3 Creamy Seafood pasta and Iced Cappuccinos. Honestly, we wanted to order more but the weather was simply too hot we couldn't really focus on what was on the menu. Shoutout to the guy waiter! We randomly suggested to sit at the courtyard table ( i think that's what it's called ) and he did let us sit there and even switched on the fan for us. A lady approached our table wanting to get to know us, she was very friendly and she does check on us from time to time. Even provided us with some maps and list of recommendations. Food was good + drinks were refreshing especially on this overly sunny weather. I can say the service here is genuine. Beautiful setting with the plants and nice ambience. I'm happy we decided to eat here and you should too.More

If you’re in George Town you must visit this place, even if it’s just for a cocktail or a beer. The building is fantastic, full of historical charm and some interesting antique pieces, including a huge wall sized mirror rescued from the E&O hotel. The...service is impeccable and the food excellent. If I happened to live here this would definitely be my local.More

We stumbled across this fantastic pub/restaurant down a busy side street. Dont ask me to find it again, I couldn't. The Paulaner sign drew me in and we were welcomed by a Swiss guy running the place. He was very friendly and we stayed a...couple of hours drinking German beers. Its dominated inside by a massive clock and a pleasant courtyard in the back. A very chatty host, good service, good drink selections and the food people were eating looked very good too. A great find and certainly recommend this place. Not overpriced eitherMore

There is shame in wanting some familiar food, when travelling in Asia. So this is the place for all liking Swiss or German food. The restaurant has a unique interior with old clocks, gas lights (most of them now electric) and the menu is great...in choice of drinks and food. The service was fast and very friendly. Unfortunately it closes on Sundays at 6pm and stays closed on Mondays, so we managed only one meal there. 😔More

We went there mainly for the Currywurst as you cant find that in asia and it was soo nice. All the food was very swiss like and the staff and also the owner were very welcoming and friendly.
