Breakfast was complimentary for hotel guests, and we loved it! There were lots of choices, so that we do not get bored. Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, muesli, cinnamon french toast (great for kids), croissant (not so great), bagels, nasi lemak (excellent choice) and roti prata (very crispy). The curry (served for nasi lemak and prata) was not too spicy,... More

Had lunch at the Mews, nice ambience, serving both western and local delicacies. It helps when the owner is an old friend and the servings are large ad tasty. There are both indoor and outdoor dining situated right in the middle of Penang's Heriage site. There are also accomodation for those interested in taking in the atmosphere. Traffic is a... More

The food in this very charming setting is well above average. The chicken satay with peanut butter sauce was abundant and the sauce was among the best peanut butter sauce I've ever tasted. The Malay dishes we both had were beautifully cooked and well presented. The service was excellent. The place itself was set in a well vegetated, small garden... More

Great service and beautiful food. Good place to go as a couple. Nice and quiet spot but only a stone throw from all the busy streets.

The place was not crowded and we didn't need to make any reservation. We ordered 2 appetizers, main course and a dessert. Costs us RM116, a little expensive for normal standard but worth your money. The chocolate cake with ice cream is heavenly! Cucur udang comes in a big portion, we couldn't finish it. Aglio Olio a little too greasy.... More

The service in Georgetown leaves a lot to be desired but it is always good here. We bring guests from UK here on a regular basis and have always had a good time, with great food. At weekends they also have live background singing in the courtyard area.

Absolutely love this place so we went twice. Beautiful people, a polite and kind guy Mr. Arief look after us the first time. Energetic and absolutely loving what she is doing Ms. June, look after us on our 2nd visit. It's a very beautiful thing to meet people who are so passionate about what they do. One of the best...

After reading the positive reviews we thought we'd give this restaurant a chance on our last night in George Town. We tried a sampling of the local cuisine for two. The portions were tiny and apart from the bass in banana leaf which was good, every thing else was mediocre and no better than the hawker street food. The Penang... More

My wife and I showed up at Mews Cafe without a reservation and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The food was wonderful. We started with spring rolls and then Aglio Olio pasta. Even the presentation of a serving of ice cream was impressive. Our evening was made even more special by the duo... More
