Great eclectic hideaway

Yes the burgers are nice. So are the wedges and the salad. And while we didn't try it, it's great that they make their own gingerbeer.

We were driving around looking for breakfast places and stumbled upon the Baboon House.. Do not judge the cafe by how plain it looks on the exterior, it is bustling with character inside.. Not only that, it is a cafe cum art gallery with cute light boxes and amazing stills of Malacca's rich Heritage. Now with all of that said,... More

This place is well known for its burgers! Yes, you come to Malacca to eat burgers! This restaurant is artistic and gives a cozy feeling. Has its unique charm. They do not allow photography though. The burgers were good. if you don't fancy their local chicken rice balls and satay celup, you can try their burgers. Good food + good... More

my boyfriend and I had burger and salad with Longan drink for lunch. It was simply awesome and delicious! He even asked for more potato wedges. The atmosphere offers you comfortable and enjoyable eating experience. We are looking forward to try another menu here for our next trip to Malacca

Love the interior and the atmosphere at this place. Service is good and efficient. The original burger had a taste of caraway in it which surprised us both since it gave the burger an extra touch. The potatowedges are amazing and the potatosalad has a hint of mustard which also suits are pallatum. Worth every ringgit :)

Having heard great reviews on trip advisor about the Baboon House we were very keen to try to for ourselves and were not disappointed. Even in the off season we had to wait to get in but they were true to their word in holding seats for us - and the wait was worth it. The burgers were excellent and... More
