I accidentally went into this sort of art gallery and found out there is a little bar counter with tables while you walk further into the house so i had a drink..realizing there is a huge tree in the middle of the house and a huge painted wall..it makes the whole environment super artsy. Nice!

Great place with Great food. the burger are fantastic but most importantly is how the owner design this place to be something worth spending the hour there having lunch. CLoses early and lots of people, be sure to be there early. It's near JOnker street

We found the place after a small walk in the sun and were relieved to find the courtyard like space to be cool and comfortable. The décor was eclectic and the staff smiling and friendly. The burgers we ordered were tasty. The very small number of accompanying potato wedges were really tasty.Two of us were vegetarian and we found the... More

One thing I did not expect was the great Kartoffelsalat - Potatosalad which let me thought maybe a german cooked it. Yes... More

One of the most delicious burgers I've ever had! They also had fresh ginger beer at the time I was there and that was incredible as well. The staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was fantastic. I wish there was a place like this back home.

Lonely planet recommended the place, and it was well deserved! The only thing I want to put a finger on is that you should wait clearing the table to all are finished eating. Brilliant burgers! Crispy fries! Fair prices! Beautiful place!

We were lead here by trip advisor and we're not disappointed. Homemade orange beer, lime-orange juice, meatball sandwiches and good coffee. Lovely service by friendly people who helped us find something unique. Don't miss this place. There's a reason it's ranked #1!

This place was on my must visit list when I went to Malaka. So hyped to Baboon after reading a review on a blog which contain massive amount of photos of the place. The place does look lovely. They don't allow us to take photo there which is kind of ironic considering I went there because of the photos from... More

When I first told my friends that I would like to try baboon house's burgers, my friends commented 'burgers in Melaka?' But this was definitely a good decision made... Based in recommendation and online reviews, we tried the beef burger to share as we had simply too much food for the day.. The burger is soft and fragrant, patty is... More
