When we got there all the tables were full. Seeing that people just paid and were leaving we waited for the table, which by the time we walked over to was given away to locals. so they set us up a new one at the far end. From here we could not hear the music and were kind of forgotten.... More

They have good choice of Malay and Western Food. Didn't try anything from the western menu, but the Beef Dendeng and Chicken Kapitan (from Malay menu) were both excellent choices. The restaurant is right along the river which was very nice. I had an interesting conversation with my Malay waiter and the staff was very friendly. The candles added a... More

Excellent location, right on river side. Candle light, cozy in the evening! Cheerful smiles from those river cruise passengers. Friendly service. Simple and delicous Asian or Western food. Don't miss the wonderful coconut shakes! Cheers!

The good: Location is excellent, right on the river. The bad: Choice restricted to either Western set menu or Asian set menu and that's it! No alcohol is served (FYI, not a complaint it's just that you would expect it.....)

I went there just want to hang out and bought some drinks. But then waiter always ask to buy their food which is so ridiculous. First time we can't order the drinks, but after that we can order. The food not so good and expensive.

Tiny restaurant along the riverbank with just three tables, but ever so relaxing watching the passing boats and away from the crowds in Dutch Square. The interior was spotlessly clean, food excellent, freshly cooked and tasty. Our waiter was friendly, prompt and efficient.

We reached there for an early dinner ard 6pm. I guess the pictures taken in the dark looks different when compared to the real place in daylight. The inside of the cafe is a little dirty to our liking so we moved to the bck (along the river) with the hope of a better seating with better view. There's only... More

Dutch Harbour Cafe serves the best coconut shakes and western food. Besides that they also have a beautiful view by the river which is very romantic. The cafe also give a very classy and vintage vibe. Its a must place to visit and dine when you're in Malacca. As you will have a memorable and unforgetable experience in Malacca.
