Nice place to have dinner with your family. The food was very delicious with cozy environment. I just love the carbonara spaghetti and my older son love the mushroom burger very much. On top of that the staff there are very friendly and very helpful.

Interesting cafe - jungle setting in a very civilised Malacca. Dont be deceived by the front which looks like a museum wannabe - venture in and especially the middle and end section - nice surprise! Jungle setting - cool! both literally and figuratively! Nice hangout. I recommend this unusual cafe - gd experience.
