Located within the Portugese Settlement, this square is also known as Little Lisbon. The square is the heart of Melaka's Eurasian community and occasionally cultural performances are held here. A nice place to have a meal and rinks and to enjoy the view over the Straits of Malacca.

Seafood price is reasonable. The shop owners tries to get you to their shop but they are quite harmless. The sea breeze and view is nice except that you won't be able to see the full sunset anymore because of the new Hatten construction that obstructs your view. if you are looking for sea breeze and a place to just...

It's interesting for portugueses people. There are people talking as portuguese were talking 500 years ago. I wouldn't reccomend for others but, for portugueses, it's a must:)

We wandered down here from our hotel. The square is full of restaurants and their is also a nice walk along the seawall. We ended up eating at one of the restaurants where I had a delicious fish.

See the historical place and learn about our past. The wide range of restaurant available and the various type of local foods is an experience to be savioured. Hanging round the beach front can be very relaxing

Located in Melaka, this Portugis Settlement becomes super happening during the Christmas Eve. There is carnival like atmosphere-letting off big lantern on the sea side, snow spay spraying, fire works, the Eurasian foods and few bistro to enjoy your nite there. Located facing the straits of Mallacca, this is an ideal place to visit on Christmas Eve where the Eurasian... More

The Portuguese Settlement was another priority on our list. Basically, these were all the descendants of Portuguese who settled down here, and hence was an interesting infusion of European culture in this part of Malaysia. During Christmastime, they actually hold celebrations, sing carols and decorate their homes beautifully for all to view and visit. The seafront was great as well... More
