Food was excellent and a bit expensive. But we enjoyed. Tried their Buttered Prawn which is sooo delicious.

The sea food is not that great but if you get a seat near the sea it is a good view. The fish was not as fresh as we thought that it would be. Kind of overrated am sure there are better options out there.

Multiple years ago this place was the place to go for fresh seafood cooked however you want. Prices were reasonable then and their service plus quality was good. Sadly this is no more. In the last couple of years they have become crowded, expensive and lazy. You still get fresh seafood however preparation is poor and taste below average. It... More

Very, very hot and the ambient is totally bad!!!!!!!! The fishes are all not that fresh!!!!!!!!!! I think I can get better from the usual market. A place like this should be kept very clean and tidy !!! Don"t you think so!!!!!!!!!

This place is just great for its name, better to choose other places such as Anjung Batu @ Semabok, the fishes are fresher, lower price & quick service.

Received many recommendations about Umbai Ikan Bakar. So when I was in Melaka for a weekend. I decided to give it a try. Took us about an hour to locate the place. Took a couple of wrong turns. Anyway, we eventually got there - Parameswara Ikan Bakar. The place was next to the sea and had a nice kampong ambience.... More

Everytime i visited Malacca,i would definately head down to Umbai for their Ikan Bakar.The restaurant that i have always patronized was Restaurant Parameswara(if i got that name right).Their dishes were delicious and although i ordered quite a lot of food,they managed to serve it very quickly..the downside would be the toilet which was filthy. But overall a nice kampung atmosphere... More
