Many visitors to Penang love to wine and dine in the city’s beautifully restored heritage mansion. Hardwicke House built at the turn of the twentieth century. Christmas dinner in the elegant Hardwicke House puts everyone in a celebratory mood.

The beautifully restored Hardwicke House is a treat to explore. This restaurant is made up of two sections, the bar, and the restaurant. Dining facilities are on two levels. The restaurant is cozy with a charming interior and decorated with pendulum lighting. The entire ground floor was beautifully decorated for Christmas.

Review: For ambiance and the novelty of dining in a heritage mansion, I would pick this as a gathering venue. As dining is on two levels, it is best to book ahead. C’est Si Bon Restaurant located in the hotel is accessible by elevator. The food is tasty. My favorite is the spiced pumpkin pie!
