We went here on a rainy night so couldn't sit out on the canal, but that would have been wonderful. There was not much atmosphere inside and we were the only people there. However, we enjoyed our night anyway because the food was so delicious. We ordered the ayam ponteh. I can't compare this to other versions of this dish... More

Made the decision to visit this place based on the good reviews. As our coach reached malacca pretty late, we came here for lunch around 2.30pm on a Sat. We had the whole place to ourselves even though some of the popular food outlets like the chicken rice had long snaking queue. We wanted to dine by the river but... More

Food there is pretty decent beers are slightly more expensive then neighbouring cafes. Overall we enjoyed sitting by the river with a few cold ones waving to passersby.

Walking so much with my elderly parents and we're told that their lunch is not ready yet, and from what I observed, their food menu is on display at the entrance. I wonder when will they start their lunch time.

Just had dinner here at this little gem. I've eaten here a few times before and it never disappoints. On the banks of the Melaka River, it's a very unassuming and unpretentious little eatery. The decor is super basic (red plastic tables and chairs) but you don't need anything when the backdrop is an UNESCO site. It is a little... More

We went here for riverside dinner. We ordered their tempra chicken (sweet &sour), eggs, and mixed vege. The taste is perfect, not too strong, very comfortable and homey tasted food. Not expensive compared to other Nyonya restaurants.

After walking around Malacca, in the heat, there comes a time when you need to kick back and have a bite and a cool drink. The Riverine Coffeehouse is an amazing place to do that. The views are spectacular, and we were treated to all the Malaysian flags still fluttering across the river from Malaysia Day. The food was wonderful,... More

Not only is the scenery spectacular - Church of St Francis Xavier and the heritage buildings on the opposite bank - but the food and the staff here are wonderful. It is a joy to spend time in this cafe. And in this lovely atmosphere.

We enjoyed a brief rest stop here beside the Melaka River with a view of St. Francis Xavier Church across the river. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The wok-fried potatoes with anchovy were a particularly interesting, and surprisingly tasty dish. We enjoyed several other, more standard, offers as well. The only downside was that when the sightseeing boats... More

Just excellent. Lovely service, explained to us how to eat the interesting nuts that were in our curry with a little spoon. Food very authentic and delicious, tastes like a home cooked meal. Haven't found food like it since, and doubt I will find it anywhere else. Do not miss, please, do yourself a favour and do not miss.
