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

Went here by chance while strolling through the Jonker street. Food was great, good service. Staff helped us to choose the items from menu. Excellent value for money.

When I went there there were a few empty tables without chairs. I asked the staff where to sit they said any where. They didn't bother to put the chair for me. I did it myself. Food was OK anyway, but after that I had to call and ask the staff to clear the plates even though they saw it... More

We went in to seek shelter from the rain, and of course, we ordered drinks and sat till the rain got lighter. Very friendly service staff. Good wi-fi connection.

This place was ok, the food was edible; did not seem to be too fresh, especially since the menu offers huge variety. Sitting outside was nice with a live singer that did her best to keep it alive.

It is the best setting in that area: outside you find all the old cultural stuffs, inside it is a cozy chic garden. I just had a simple drink inside, enjoying the live jazzy singing and music.

This looks like a beautiful courtyard tourist trap, but on both trips to Melaka we have had very impressive meals here. The service was welcoming and friendly and we do not recall the food taking a long time coming to the table.

Be prepared for long waiting time for your food to arrive. If you are in a rush, this is not the place to be. But strongly suggest if you like to spend a night out at an open-air bistro with live music. Owner is friendly too.

Ordered food and after 1hour, only 1 out of 4 orders turned up. Really bad experience and as a local, I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
