No great shakes, reading all the reviews made me give this cafe a go, it's just that a cafe and a average one at that, the food and beer are very expensive compared to other places on the same street, wasn't for me and I won't go back

Slow service for average food. Not worth the heat, wait and price. Looks better in photos than reality. Suggest trying other outlets.

Walking around Chinatown in Melaka, we spotted what looked like a nice place for a drink and a bite to eat. At first we sat in the bar area and had a drink which took a long time to get, however the atmosphere seemed relaxed and the music good. Whenever we tried to flag down a waiter to remind him...

Came to Geographer for the Vegetarian food. Was here the third time on 09-02-2016. The environment is cozy, especially on the 2nd Floor. The windows opens view to the busy Jonker street. Tried the Curry Ramen , Tempek(fried soyo bean pie) and the refreshing Plum Juice.

Friends and I dined at the Geographer in October last year and my son and I had dined there previously. Both time were great with good food, prompt service and friendly staff. Also a great atmosphere.

Came here twice in my 2 day Malacca trip because the food was so good! They had lot of options for my vegetarian friends as well. The drinks were a bit too expensive (relative to other bars) but very strong! Live music was of a high standard and service was good. A must visit if you're in Malacca

Drinks are somewhat affordable, and on some days, there are live bands performing. The food is quite good as well, and the servers are very attentive. What draws me to this place is that they have an airconditioned interior, which is perfect for the hot afternoons, and the patio area outside is just right for the evenings.

Good food decently priced for a tourist spot. Service fairly slow but it was a busy weekend so probably a bit overwhelmed.
