We came to Melaka with our family from the US. We were looking for an option that had some variety of food and could handle our large group. Food was good, service was fine, and prices were acceptable. Would recommend for others.

My friends & I ordered a tower of Asahi and when we took the first sip, it doesn't taste like Asahi at all! We suspected it was Carlsberg and approached the staff to highlight the problem. Surprisingly, they verified and told us that it is... More

This bar is ideally placed to watch the world go by be it locals on scooters or tourists trying to work out which way to go. The beers are always cold and the snacks tasty. It's also just round the corner from most of the Jonckers Street art etc.

As a fairly highly rated TripAdvisor restaurant in Melaka we had reasonable expectations for both food and service- neither were good. The cashew chicken was dry and a bit rubbery and we sent back one of the other dishes as it was deep fried chicken that had been terribly overlooked - they made us pay for it in spite of... More

A great pint and the foods pretty good also. On a Saturday and Monday there is usually alive performer singing all in all a good night though as Saturday is market night it can get pretty busy, so grabbing a seat can be difficult though they put plenty of extra tables outside and they also bought over a bar across...

This place is at the corner of Jonker Street. The place is cozy with great architecture. Very busy at night during weekends. Great to sit down and have a drink or order a meal.
