Not the best place for Nyonya food. Music from the nearby pubs are glaringly LOUD and rambunctious. Food is so-so only. There are better meals down Jonker street towards San Shu Gong...

Eleven is actually a combination of several establishments. A cafe/bar, with a bistro/restaurant across the street. The combination offers one of the broadest arrays of food and drink I've seen anywhere in Malaysia, much less Melaka. Read on for more...

LOCATION:
The restaurants are on the "Hainan Food Street" about halfway down Jonker Street from the main square. Look for the Geographer Cafe on the corner and turn left.

CUISINE:
Like many places in Melaka, Eleven offers a combination of Malaysian, Peranakan, and Western fare. But unlike many others, they're dead serious (and completely un-pretentious) about their Western offerings, including the best (and possibly only) collection of Belgian and German beers in town. I have to admit that I came here after dinner for snacks and drinks, not a full meal, but the prices were reasonable (Happy Hour beer pints for <20 MYR, snacks for <6 MYR and desserts for 4.00 MYR.). Dinners looked reasonably large and well made, but do refer to other reviews for better info on serious meals here.

SERVICE:
OK, let's face it. Service in Malaysia, except for luxury hotel properties, generally sucks. Eleven is not luxury service, but the friendly group of bartenders and (I suspect) owners keep the drinks flowing, and always check back when a glass or plate is nearly empty. The bill was correct, the music funky and fun but not too loud to drown out conversation, and in general the staff got us what we needed with a minimum of muss and fuss. For Malaysia, I consider this a win!

Overall, I consider Eleven to be one of the better western/Expat style bars & restaurants in Melaka. It's not where you want to go for authentic Nyonya cuisine or white-tablecloth service, but if you're in the mood for a solid, reasonably-priced meal and one of the best (also reasonably priced) bar selections in Melaka, give Eleven a try!
