Very varied menu from local to western so suits all. We had pizza for kids fish and chicken and a local dish. All very nice. Live singer on every night. Service was good staff very friendly. We actually came to this restaurant two years ago so returned knowing it was good.

Service was quick and all staff where smiley and informative. All the dishes where fresh and worth the 5 minute delay between serving. Live music was good but so loud that you could not sustain a conversation without shouting over each other. If the music was turned lower and the service quickened a bit more, I am sure this place...

It was an hour til New Year, it was packed. We were a group of 8 with two very hungry friends who have not had dinner. But lively music and a very enthusiastic guard attracted us in. We ordered drinks, one set dinner, one pizza and one chicken chop. Our set dinner never came, despite us reminding them every 15minutes... More

While my wife and I enjoyed our meals, we waited an hour a half for the kids' meals, and neither of them enjoyed them (son's not as advertised, and far too much cheese on daughter's lasagna). The other part that was funny was that we had to keep changing our orders because they didn't have the ingredients for the food... More

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
