Other than Little Cottage, there is another restaurant with dim light which is suitable for couple – The Ship. There are two branches in Penang here and the one I am going to talk later is in Jalan Sri Bahari. Even though the slogan is “The Best Stick Steak in Town”, I ordered one Seafood Au Gratin (Prawn, crab meat, oyster, fish meat, etc mixed with egg and baked cheese, with potato wedges on side) when I first visited it in September 2007. Some meals are only applicable at Sri Bahari branch while some at Batu Ferringgi branch.
An advice when sitting there…. try to sit at the center to have chiller environment. When I visited them first time, I sat along the wall and sweat coming out after the meal. The waitress saw me so pity and recommended me to sit at the center in future. Definitely not a good area for couple who plan to undergo “hot” activity there. Also, the waitress will put a tower on your lap before meal arrival so make sure your “handbrake” is at down position.
As a whole, the food is quite nice and the price is reasonable. The meal (Seafood Au Gratin) as mentioned just now is a set lunch comes with crab meat mushroom soup, mango drink, dessert, and a FREE GIFT. The dessert is an ice-cream cake in Rum and Raisin favor – the favor I like most. It is kind of special considering they give free gift (a magnetic Malaysia kite) to customer as well. With only RM35.00 nett, this place definitely worths a second visit.
