Set Nonya menu at lunchtime

Great location right by the river with helpful serving girls making lunch a very pleasant time. The set menu represents outstanding value and I love my scoff but couldnt finish it all! A haven of peace in busy Melaka so I will dine here often

This restaurant is situated right on the river and is very pretty at night. The staff are very obliging and helpful however the main event did not live up to expectations in any way. The smoked salmon was the best dish presented on the plate at the table. The sea bass was over cooked making it very dry. The salad... More

Casa del Rio hotel includes two bars and two restaurants. River Café is one of the restaurants (The other is the slightly upmarket River Grill). As we were staying in Casa del Rio, it was almost a no-brainer to have a late lunch at the River Café. At the River Café it is possible to sit outside close to the... More

This Riverside Grill serves very good pizzas! You can create one of your own or choose from the variety on the menu. They are served on a VERY Hot clay slab! Very tasty!

This restaurant is part of the beautiful Case Del Rio hotel and residences. A fantastic place to enjoy your romantic dinner with the wonderful night view of the Malacca river.

Lovely restaurant inside what is a lovely hotel, Casa del Rio. Tables outside on the balcony terrace over looking the river are the best unless you really need your air con. The buffet is average but the outside terrace tables make the dinner and ambiance certainly worthwhile. Prices are reasonable and less than half price buffet for kids!

We stopped for supper on a Friday night - first time in Melaka. I had back problems, and just couldn't go on any longer without a rest. And that was really lucky! The location is beautiful, and romantic. There is comfortable seating, lovely views, nice lighting. Especially for patio seating - there was no trouble with wobbly tables or chairs.... More
