Best steak we had in a very long time. Medium-well is really medium-well, not overcooked like we get in Bangkok where imported beef is very expensive. Salmon is good, too. None of that fishy aftertaste that we came across at other places.

Dinner set menu, 32 RM good choices including one drink, appetizer and simple dessert. They advertise with burgers. Do not even think of trying; meat was undercooked, bun dry/old. Satah meat very dry. Laksha and nasi lembak simple but ok. Location perfect, but consider taking mosquito repellant.

Went in for a late ish lunch mid week. No other customers but friendly low key service and sat by river. Food excellent (esp the soup) and a generally good place for a fair priced meal.

Is a must visit café whenever you in Malacca. The great ambience plus excellent food for tourist as well as locals. A wide variety of food to choose from starter, main course to desert and supported by extremely nice crew staff. Value for money and strategically located. A walking distance to Jonker street and places of interest.

This is a great place to get a mixture of Dutch and Melaka food. They have live music on the weekend. Great place to eat and wind down after all the shopping!

It's over priced for the mediocre food they served. Service was slow. Not going back there again. Neither should you.
