This is lovely little welcoming bistro. The staff were engaging, jovial and very efficient. Food - well it was okay but we were not overly impressed except for the mouthwatering desserts. We started with a vegetarian platter that was a nice contrast to our weeks...of Malay food. It offered a couple of chutneys, hummus, breads and cheeses but it wasn’t really impressive or French. The steak was very nice and tender with a flavorful jus. The other dishes were disappointing and even the frites tasted a bit mealy. This is Penang and you have to accept that the interpretation of French cuisine has to suit locals. It’s a lovely atmosphere and a big menu - the desserts were wonderful so save room. The bar menu was very impressive with Belgian beers, French aperitifs, many wines (not all in stock). Overall it is the sort of place that expats long for.More

We chose a tasty and simple vegetarian platter which was beautifully presented in a cozy ambience. The best part of the evening was the professional and warm service.

Had a nice meal, we ordered the 5 hour lamb for 2 but it’s only enough for 1 person. Side dishes were nice. We both had soup and they were very flavoursome. Wine was also good

Two Frenchies is an absolute gem of a restaurant! A friendly, casual atmosphere with attentive staff and really tasty food. Highly recommend their signature dishes of boeuf bourguignon and duck breast which were both delicious. This is some of the best food we have had...during our extended stay in Penang. Highly recommended!More

Had the escargot, onion soup, and beef bourguignon. Beef was tender and soft. Owner was generous with the bread. Best part, she’s multilingual! It made us feel very welcoming. Overall, everything was good. Food tasted homey.

The restaurant was fully booked and everything was closed and we were so hungry, we got in and Jubel told us it was full, but I guess he saw our face and made an excepción and sat us outside, he asked if was ok for...us, I guess because was hot and was the only table but we didn’t mind, and we had the best food specially French food and best experience here in Georgetown thanks to Jabel! His carisma and a bit of Spanish that he knows makes us a great night! Thank you Jubel!More

A lovely friendly restaurant. Staff are brilliant and the French style food is as good as you'll get anywhere. We've eaten our way through the menu since they opened in 2018 (?) the confit duck is excellent as is the magret de canard. Everything is...very reasonably priced, so even with a glass of wine, you won't break the bank.More

This was an absolutely wonderful meal. The food was delicious and perfect. We had foil gras de pate, beef bourguignon, duck confit, creamed spinach and tart aux pommes. I felt like I was in Paris. And the owner and staff were so friendly and nice....Now I know why they have a 5-start rating! Definitely a highlight of our meals on this trip.More
