We stayed in Malacca for 4 days and ended up spending at least a couple hours a day in this bar watching the world go by. My boyfriend and I are NOT creatures of habit so it was completely out of character for us, but we simply fell in love with this place and finally really wound down here. The... More

Believe it or not, we had some of the greatest pesto spaghetti! The used a very special type of basil that has a citrus aroma, and the effect on the pasta was spectacular. Also the mojito was very good. And a last remark: the man's public toilettes were the cleanest ones I have visited for years!

Visited the "famous" cafe in Melaka at night, the food was nice, Environment is good but the hospitality is very poor. I do remember the time was around 10pm. When we walk in, no staff entertaining us, I'm very sure that night wasn't that busy, we wait for about 10 minutes, a male staff bring us to the table that... More

Geographer is a beautiful cafe be it during the day or at night. Good for meals and drinks, it's located in the heart of Joker Street. A must visit at least once while in Melaka. However, it's pricey. There are many cafes around that charges much less. A bucket of 5 small Heineken beers costs about RM90. Go for the... More

Nice place to hang out for a meal or drinks in the old town area of Melaka. Appears to be one of the hip places though there are other smaller nice bars and cafes also offering live music and atmosphere. Geographer might be a little overrated as the meal I had there was okay but not outstanding and the cocktails... More

Along JONKER so great for the night market atmosphere. Live music some nights too and great place to sit and watch world go by. Food nothing special though and we found it over priced compared to the excellent competition.

Being Vegetarian for couple of weeks in a year, it isn't so easy for me to find a vege place that can cater for both me and my non veg other half. So when I saw vege items on the menu, I was pretty excited. Service was good, food was yummy and it was nice to get out of the... More
