We arrived Melaka from KL around lunch time and were starving. We started walking on Jonker Street and saw this nice place. It has an old look and tables outside on a courtyard. The environment is really good. There weren’t a lot of people and we seated at a table. After a long time we finally called a waiter attention... More

While the service has much to be improved, the food and relaxed ambience certainly made up for it. Try their pasta dishes and down it with a Corona beer... Just spellbinding!

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) and dessert. Prices are comparable with other restaurants.

We happened upon this location during a weekend trip. The place was retty quiet when we arrived and we were left to our own devices to find a seat. When our server did arrive she was awesomw - and so full of energy she made me dizzy! The freshly squeezed juice was good but I hate getting cold drinks in... 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 the barman had no hesitation in lending us an umbrella, very impressed. We returned, of... More

Went here by chance while strolling through the Jonker street. Food was great, good service. Staff helped us to choose the items from menu. Excellent value for money.

When I went there there were a few empty tables without chairs. I asked the staff where to sit they said any where. They didn't bother to put the chair for me. I did it myself. Food was OK anyway, but after that I had to call and ask the staff to clear the plates even though they saw it... More

We went in to seek shelter from the rain, and of course, we ordered drinks and sat till the rain got lighter. Very friendly service staff. Good wi-fi connection.

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.
