Went here for dinner, the decor was amazing and there was a band with 2 ladies singing. The mature lady was a brilliant singer.

Right in the middle of Melaka, this restaurant is tucked in a covered alley so you can sit outside whether it's raining or sunny. There was a group of us so we ordered several dishes to share. Each was excellent and presented the local cuisine in superb fashion. Very attentive staff just added to the experience. We sat there for... More

Visited this place for 2 times. I ordered Tiramisu cake during the first visit. That was such a HUGE mistake by ordering it! It tasted horrible & yet so expensive, 1 piece of it cost nearly rm20 after tax. During the second visit, we ordered Vegetarian Aglio Olio & Chicken Chop. I really like their Aglio Olio as the taste... More

I was introduced to this bistro by chance as I had to attend a function here. If first impression is the most important, then my first impression of this place was certainly invaluable. The ambience was perfect and most of all, the food is simply magnificent. And what a better way to enjoy your food other than enjoying a live... More

Food was good, service absolutely lousy. Every main came at a different time, the entree came last. It was an hour between the first and the last meal. Than they stared to double up when every one had eaten and to top it all off the mandarins they gave us to say sorry where rotten.
