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.

We came across this nice cafe by the river. Wow .. Its like venice!. Have your dinner while watching the boats go by. My girlfriend had Laksa …nice and spicy. I had this huge Beef Ribs not bad comparable to Tony Roma. The waiters were friendly and food came short while after our soup. It was a night to remember.... More

Great atmosphere on the riverfront. Really friendly staff. Reasonable prices. This is definitely the best place to hang on the river. There is a wide choice of Malaysian and Western dishes. Good choice of fresh juices and the coconut smoothies are to die for. Catch Azhar on the weekends. He is the owner and has lots of stories to share.

Waited 45 minutes for 2 drinks even though the place did not seem overly busy while the waiter keep playing with his smartphone. At last, we cancelled the rest of our order. When we were leaving, we spent another 15 minutes to receive the bill. Avoid this place if ypu don't want to spoil your holiday.

It's not a dutch food restaurant but a good Malay food is served in a cozy place right along the banks of river. It's a good place to go to have a romantic eve or even have a lunch or dinner with a friend. There is no pork on the menu and no alcohol is served at the place but... More

Beautiful riverside location for lunch. Checkered tablecloths, watching the riverboats pass...... Apart from the ancient buildings across the water, could be very romantic Parisienne scene! Had the BEST Laksa here,hubby had the infamous burger which was enormous, and apparently really good. Thanks go to Rocky for the lovely chat! Highly recommended.

Came across this by chance and had a fixed price meal here one evening. Great riverside location with friendly staff the place could do with a little more sophistication in the menu presentation and perhaps a wider choice to offer The value was exceptional and that together with the location might draw you back but the food needs to be...

We went here for dinner and were glad to have done so. The food that we ordered was quite good and the atmosphere was really romantic. The chef was generous enough when he gave us extra mussels that were freshly caught and cooked with butter that were not included in the menu for no extra charge. This is not a... More

The location is very nice, next to the river. Waiters very friendly and happy. However the food was quite average. The spring rolls were taken from a tray and were cold, so not fresh at all. Meal was ok-ish but nothing special compared to other meals that I've tried in Malaysia.
