What a difference from my last time here. Service was really, really slow and the wait staff were running around like headless chicken. We had to call them a few times before we could place our orders. We understand it was a busy time, but they only had 3 staff working which was obviously... read more

For me, this is still one of the more entertaining spots to hang out, have a few drinks and generally while the time away right in the middle of one of the liveliest parts of town. Lack of lively options in town mean we have ended up here almost every single time during our 5+ trips to Melaka. Really comes... More

This is your typical tourist restaurants smack bang in the middle of the tourist district. Good selection of wines, beers and spirits all at Tourist Prices. Reasonably menu serving a fair selection of both Asian and European dishes, again all at tourist prices. Live music is average, nothing offensive, but nothing outstanding. Good place to either and watch the 1000s... More

This Cafe/Bar is in the heart of Jonker Street, which comes alive on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights due to the night markets. We went during the week and it still had a lot of customers. We didn't eat there and only had tiger beer (in a bucket) and it wasn't served very cold. I then had to visit the... More

3rd visit to this restaurant and it doesn't disappoint. The staff is busy yes, especially on weekends, but go for the food as Melaka is known for it. The café is not too big but has outdoor as well as indoor seating. On certain days of the week and weekends, enjoy live music by the lovely band. This is a... More

Stumbled upon this cafe on jonker walk; ate our evening meal here. Friendly staff and clean tables. Food is a reasonable price, good taste and average portion size. Would eat here again.

The ambience was alright. However the food had this spice in it that i did not like. And it is rather expensive in comparison. however still very popular among tourists.

Good drinks, excellent location, good food, and very very nice service! It was the second time we stopped here to have drinks. Their drinks menu is huge and their food is eclectic. Like the Cafe' s name says, it is from all over the world. My mom ( we are Italians) ordered a pasta dish, and I was quite sceptical... More
