The building does actually date back to 1673. I sat in the courtyard but there are tables inside as well. Friendly & helpful staff. Service was fast & efficient. I had braised chicken with dried chilli and was very happy with it. With a beer it came to RM31. I would happily have gone back, but there are too many... More

We went here for a drink on a hot malacca day. The place is quite nice and in a quite alley. You can see honker street but have less of the noise. Service however was average and the prices higher than normal. From 2 to 7 they have happy hour with discounted drinks. They have free wifi.

The food was adequate and the beer reasonably priced. My expectations were so much higher than what I received which is why I scored lowly. I would not return for a second visit

This place looked good, a nice garden restaurant off Jonker street. It looked like a nice place to get away from the hussle and bustle of Saturday markets. Forget about it, the food was ordinary at best, over cooked meat and unimaginative sides. Try somewhere else down the street

The price quite expensive.Dont try chicken chop cause their black pepper sauce not worth it.But their chicken and steak quite big enough. The ambience was good with live band singing old songs.

Perfect choice of nyonya food when the other more casual restaurants are with long queues! It's a bit more expensive than some nearby restaurants but well worth the price. Beautiful garden and very attentive staffs! They have a set menu for nyonya food. Ver tasty!
