The spicy lamb burger is amazing. My partner loved the pork burger, which we enjoyed with rose wine and lemon grass lemonade, bottled on site to minimize waste. Coffee is excellent. Burger and drink will cost about RM20 - 25. A must visit on Melaka holiday.

No doubt this restaurant served good burgers in town.even their signature drinks are homemade.I like their lemon grass drink indeed.However, their kids menu are limited to chicken bites ONLY.If you are dining as a couple, I definitely recommend this place.Prices are reasonable.But I never paid such high prices for just burgers. But, because it's homemade you opt to pay more.

On top of having delicious food and drink (the lemongrass-ade is to die for!), this is a laid-back but super cool place to hang out. The interior decoration and atmosphere are just fabulous. I believe the building is an original Dutch style house with several open courtyards within the establishment and gorgeous staircases. In these ceiling-less areas are hanging garden,... More

What a great lunch and ambience. Suspect I may travel from KL just for a hamburger! We have been to Melaka several times but this meal tops the list

I visit Melaka frequently and never tire of the Baboon house. They have introduced a policy of a closed gate where you need to ring before gaining entry. I guess this may be a way to control numbers, anyway it works and the vibe is as ever laid back. Great burgers, coffee and tea and perfect for reading the Sunday... More
