On Jonkers street but has a nice quiet courtyard. It has a varied Malaysian and European menu. I had a Prawn chowder that was simply superb and good value at RM14.80++ then had a Pineapple fried rice with seafood RM15.80++ This was a bit on the small side. They even have Savanna cider for any South Africans that visit. Attached... More

Not a bad meal. I had the seafood fried rice and Fresh Mango. Pretty good and not expensive. They also had pretty good wifi and the service was quick.

Nice atmosphere, open air courtyard. Small portions. Expensive for what you get. Nothing special in the food and beverage.

The restaurant was a good place to eat good food in Malacca. We tasted Malasian food and desert there. The staff was friendly and served very well. The price was reasonable. We recommend everybody to eat there.

The waitress was nice but the food was awful. We ordered a different chicken rice dish each. However we were served the same dish. My portion size was tiny. The chicken / veg stir fry was the size of the palm of my hand (I am not big either!!) The chicken in both meals was fatty - I've never eaten... More

We were seated quickly and served fairly swiftly too. Really good singers made the atmosphere. My husband had Seafood & Pineapple Fried Rice and I had the Mozzarella & Tomato starter. Both were well presented and delicious and took very little time to arrive. We also had three drinks and shared a local ice cream dish (that was a little... More

Excellent food, either Nyonya or Western cuisine. A must try is their cocktail drinks. Relax in the ambience of the place while being entertained by singers.

It is amazing that an establishment with such great location and expansive real estate could be so poorly managed! The restaurant gets full marks for location. It is right on Jonker street and we were there on a busy weekend. Every other place on the street was packed and as we walked past this place, we saw a few empty... More
