The Geographer cafe is a landmark restaurant in old town Melaka. It has great ambience and an even better menu featuring a full range of Malay, Thai, Indian, vegetarian and halal food choices... Portions are just right and the flavor not too spicy for most palates :) The Geo has a great selection of juices and other beverages... you won't... More

Wide menu selection, there's even a vegetarian option! Food quality is acceptable and I enjoyed all the food a lot. Though staff is not knowledgable, as she need to keep checking with another staff when we have some query, she is polite and friendly! We have no issue with her being inexperience. Anyway all of us were ever inexperience when... More

We went to Geographer Cafe for dinner. We tried some Malaysian dishes and all of them were really amazing. The service quality is high, presentations are great, everybody is very friendly. Highly recommended.

Good location in the popular Jonker Street area with much night life. Pasta was excellent. Nice place to watch the nightlife since they have outdoor seating.

We enjoyed our first meal here that we returned for another one. Each time, we went to the small annex that is across the road from the main restaurant. It is less crowded, quieter, and the service excellent. The food is brought across the road, but arrives just as fast as if you are in the main restaurant. There are... More

We learnt that it was not possible to amend a dish slightly for dietary purposes, and when it arrived the few pieces of chicken were were rubbery and the food was left uneaten. Try the Melting Pot nearby, much better

Good service, nice polite staff, sometimes can be over helpful. Good mid range prices for drinks and food, large portions. Decor is nice, seating is a little cramped. Definitely a must when visiting Melaka. Try the Plum Cocktail...excellent.

Right on Jonker street this place is definitely hiking up the prices due to its location It isn't the most comfortable in Melaka and certainly not the cheapest but due to its location it is always going to get good trade The service was slow and staff were a bit surly and kept bumping into our table without ever apologising...

We visited around 3pm after a 4 hour car ride from Singapore. It was a nice spot to get a drink, cool off, and try some satay. My sister ordered the curry noodles and couldn't decide if she loved them or hated them. My brother-in-law finished them off with no problem. FREE wifi to enjoy (just ask the server for... More

Tasty foods in a very charming atmosphere. While I was not impressed with the veggie curry and naan,the other items I tasted were great.
