Good location, good ambience, live band during weekends, and vegetarian options, good for entertaining groups with special diets.

A great feed, air con or not air con. No one smoking! Good prices and ambience! Worth the visit. A good variety of Malay and western food but we enjoyed the Malay!

Service was pretty bad, food just ok, location good. Wrong drink was served, mains came before starter, didn't have the first starter I wanted - who runs out of tofu? Service overall was a big problem

On our two days visit in Melaka we visited this Cafe 3 times! We like the atmosphere. We enjoyed the food and the casualness of the place. It's nice to sit and have a drink and watched people passed by. A good value for money.

Had a pit stop here whilst going through the busy night market. This cafe has a great buzz about it and the Guinness is excellent. Didn't try the food but what came out of the kitchen looked excellent.

This is a good place to have a meal and drinks whilst watching the world go by, we had a meal on Friday night during a visit to Jonkers street night market, there was also live music on at the Geographer. I would recommend Both market visit and meal. If you like live music there was also a busker playing... More

The quality of food (or service) was not bad at all, and also the location and the atmosphere was all right. But I would recommend the place only to those who prefer a more western approach to food. If you want local food you can get it better and cheaper elsewhere.

nice simple and practical setting. but crowded. seats are without back rest. not good for those who want to seat back and relax listening to songs and some cocktails.
