Extremely horrible service!

They not only messed up our reservation, they messed up our order by not serving us everything in their Christmas eve set menu. The manager wasn't even familiar with the restaurant menu. The food was terrible as well. Truly horrible service. Never coming here again.

We choosed the restaurant because the ambiente was pretty beautiful with nice christmas decoration at that time, live music (old american songs) and wooden chairs and tables. The sutff was very friendliy and came always immediately after we activated the bell on our table. One of the waitresses took the time to answer all our questions around Melakka and Jonker... More

The food was really good, good price. We sat outside and that was absolutely wonderful. Big menu, great choice. We like it so much we went back a second time. Live music when we were there.

Had lunch here with my parents. Had chicken with rice in several styles. Good menu with lots of choice (local & western). Great ambiance, old Dutch colonial style (used to be local tax office built in 1673!) with high ceilings and old wooden staircase. Nice pictures on the walls with sceneries of Melaka in the old colonial days. Place recently... More

Great ambience on busy Jonker Street. The service was ok at the time because there were not many customers. The Laksa and Mee Goreng were great. Fish and Chips was passable. Don't think the juices were fresh as the claimed it to be. Nice pit stop during a hot shopping walk.

It was a weeknight so Jonker St was a bit quiet and not a lot of dining places are open. We were enticed by this place's very cozy and nice ambiance, situated in an old, rustic house. The place is great, however, service is really bad. I got my food after more than an hour of waiting (it was for... More

Discovered this little gem on a busy Saturday night at Jonker Street. We just popped in for a drinks as already snacking while shop around at Jonker Street. The entrance was thought an alley but the alley walk way separated the busy Jonker Street with the restaurant. The atmosphere of the restaurant was calm with live blue, jazz, oldies and... More

We don't normally go for restaurants with music and were a bit concerned when a musician and 2 singers started up but they were very good and volume level was not intrusive The food and service were very good and could recommend the Tiramasu The prices were also very reasonable
