The staff here is so warm, welcoming, friendly and attentive. I ordered the Sea Bass with vegies and the whole dish was cooked and seasoned to perfection (a rarity when eating western dishes in Asia). They offer Chinese dinner sets and Western food, alcohol (beer/wine/cocktails)...More

It was our first visit to Jonker Street and the open air bar with tables and chairs under umbrellas lured us in with the slightly inclement weather. The first time we just sipped for a beer and when, on leaving it was pouring with rain...More

This place was ok, the food was edible; did not seem to be too fresh, especially since the menu offers huge variety. Sitting outside was nice with a live singer that did her best to keep it alive.

It is the best setting in that area: outside you find all the old cultural stuffs, inside it is a cozy chic garden. I just had a simple drink inside, enjoying the live jazzy singing and music.

This looks like a beautiful courtyard tourist trap, but on both trips to Melaka we have had very impressive meals here. The service was welcoming and friendly and we do not recall the food taking a long time coming to the table.

Be prepared for long waiting time for your food to arrive. If you are in a rush, this is not the place to be. But strongly suggest if you like to spend a night out at an open-air bistro with live music. Owner is friendly...More
