Whenever we come down to Melaka, we make it a point to visit Chef Anthony for the seafood. His seafood is always a perfect delight-- fresh, often just pulled out of the sea earlier in the day!

Was privileged to dine here on a special day. Chef Anthony's does offer periodic buffet and having dined there before, I was given an sms that notified me of the Portugese Buffet Dinner. Geraho fritters, Saybak, Pork Curry Devil, Portugese baked fish, Cincaru Soy Limang were only a few of the dishes I can recall. Looking forward to dropping in... More

Curry devil tasted good, not... More

Sorry to disagree with the other reviews, but we cannot give 5 stars, at least not yet. Anthony's showed the potential to be 5 stars, but it isn't there at the moment. In fairness, we went on a Saturday evening and the staff was swamped. There were several tables with large groups, but not all the tables were taken. Tip... More

My family and I have tasted the seafood at this restaurant and have found the fish, crabs and oysters to be very fresh. The cooking is done well by a well-known chef called Anthony who has worked overseas as well as some of the famous hotels in Melaka and elsewhere. Being Portuguese he also has mastered his native family dishes.... More
