Went in for a late ish lunch mid week. No other customers but friendly low key service and sat by river. Food excellent (esp the soup) and a generally good place for a fair priced meal.

Is a must visit café whenever you in Malacca. The great ambience plus excellent food for tourist as well as locals. A wide variety of food to choose from starter, main course to desert and supported by extremely nice crew staff. Value for money and strategically located. A walking distance to Jonker street and places of interest.

This is a great place to get a mixture of Dutch and Melaka food. They have live music on the weekend. Great place to eat and wind down after all the shopping!

It's over priced for the mediocre food they served. Service was slow. Not going back there again. Neither should you.

Because of the renovation being done on the stretch of shops near to it, you might miss the pathway leading to the restaurant. But once you are there, u will be captivated by the view. The moonlight and twinkling stars, the river view and relaxing sound of water splashing on the river bank, the smiling faces and waving tourist in... More

Sitting by the river for lunch or dinner or just chilling out and having a glass of local ice coffee just off the tourist areas was for me the best way to enjoy a laid back afternoon in the middle of old Malacca.
