Smelly alleyway

We stopped here for a drink only as the place lacked atmosphere and was very smelly down the side which is where the tables with fans were located. The food looked plentiful though we decided not to eat due to the smell of the drains

Love this place.. sitting in the open alley of the restaurant between two old buildings is a must. Food is ok though would prefer more authentic peranakan. The music and the lovely singer who sings to your request is a plus!

We went here for an after dinner drink, enjoyed a nice selection of wines at a price not too much higher than supermarket, good music in an off-main garden setting. Snacks were very good, well cooked and served quickly

After walking around at Jonkers Night Market we decided to eat here. good Food and a Great Place. A little on the expensive side compared to everything close by. My sister forgot her baby carrier at night and when we called up in the morning the security informed us that they have it with them. In the afternoon when we... More

Nice courtyard setting. Oh dear, this is my third bad review of a restaurant near Jonker St. I need a new location. It seems that restaurants around Jonker St no longer make an effort for the large number of passing tourists. More poor quality white wine by the glass. It was chilled so that was good, I suppose. A tropical... More

We arrived Melaka from KL around lunch time and were starving. We started walking on Jonker Street and saw this nice place. It has an old look and tables outside on a courtyard. The environment is really good. There weren’t a lot of people and we seated at a table. After a long time we finally called a waiter attention... More

While the service has much to be improved, the food and relaxed ambience certainly made up for it. Try their pasta dishes and down it with a Corona beer... Just spellbinding!

The staff here is so warm, welcoming, friendly and attentive. I ordered the Sea Bass with vegies and the whole dish was cooked and seasoned to perfection (a rarity when eating western dishes in Asia). They offer Chinese dinner sets and Western food, alcohol (beer/wine/cocktails) and dessert. Prices are comparable with other restaurants.

We happened upon this location during a weekend trip. The place was retty quiet when we arrived and we were left to our own devices to find a seat. When our server did arrive she was awesomw - and so full of energy she made me dizzy! The freshly squeezed juice was good but I hate getting cold drinks in... More

It was our first visit to Jonker Street and the open air bar with tables and chairs under umbrellas lured us in with the slightly inclement weather. The first time we just sipped for a beer and when, on leaving it was pouring with rain the barman had no hesitation in lending us an umbrella, very impressed. We returned, of... More
