Easily spotted from outside, it has the bow of a wooden ship poking out onto the pavement. The inside the nautical theme continues, just like being inside of a large wooden ship with a lot of nautical artefacts scattered around. The only thing that was a bit 'isshy' was the staff all wore silly 'fair ground type' sailors hats, however... More

Don't know why but restaurant was empty, although waiter escorted family with two small kids to sit next to us. After two minuets he did the same with to young ladies and they "landed" just next to us as well. Probably they do it just because it is much more convenient for the waiters! Food was ready in 5-10 min.... More

This has always been one of my favourite restaurants in Penang; however in recent years the service, and quality of the food have somewhat gone off the boil. I'm always one to give restaurants and hotels a second chance, so visiting Penang in January 2017 decided to give the restaurant a second chance, and how pleasantly surprised I was. The... More

Visited during new year. Menu was limited. No menu for our little girl. But they provided free bread to her. Nice hospitality. We order lamb chop and beef steak, and asked him to cooked well done, but they served medium well. The atmosphere is nice, played music is not loudly. Food and drink are tasty, nice staff. But the price... More

Nice ambience, interior like being in a ship, staff in ships uniform, one of the oldest and established restaurants in Penang. Last visit was 2 years ago but it seems to have lost some of its mojo since then. Service and food not as good as before. The free skip caps didn't make up for it but a nice touch.

They have revised their menu & price recently. But food portion and quality not parallel to the price increase. No water was served after 20mins seated. When we highlighted the poor ventilation, the staff eventually turned the standing fan to out table. Dining at a restaurant with RM31.90per plate for Chicken chop with no aircond?!! I very 1st experience and... More

Got a recommendation from my hotel in Penang to try this restaurant if I wanted a steak in this area. Was greeted by friendly staff in the casual restaurant seeing and got served a salad and bread immediately after ordering. Food was served promptly and both the scallops, sizzling tenderloin and crepes was up to standard! Not bad... No Wifi... More

After 5 days of primarily local food, it was good to escape to the Ship where we all enjoyed good steaks. There was 10 in the party but we were served and looked after well. Cost was very good.

Thank Ramsay M
