Very good foor in nice surroundings

On the terrace, with view over the river, we had a truly lovely meal. Steamboat was very good and so was the curry. Too bad the curry arrived when the steamboat was nearly finished, but that was the only flaw. Excellent, friendly service and very decent prices.

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

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).

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.
