Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I hv never dine in a cafe this failed in my life. The order came 1 hour later even though we were told to give the food 20mins to be served. The chicken wings were not fully cooked. He took back to refry but forgot....The rest of the food were bad too. So fed up to explain more. Please please don't waste your money there.More

Already change ownership. Now offering pakistani brayani , tandoori etc. No more Malaysian and western cuisine. We are disappointed because we look forward to dine here and try some western and malaysian food with the good rating.

This restaurant, run by two very friendly Canadians, offer delicious, custom made pizzas at a very affordable place. We ate indoors, however, they have a beautiful terrace overlooking the river. Great location and great pizzas!

Western food. The food is big serving for 1 person. Cozy, they lack red sauce spaghetti at the time of our visit which my daughter is into... but she’s happy with the noodles and ice cream served to her...

My friends and i came across the the place by accident while we were looking for a pace to take some pctures of the river boats, being a hot day we decided to have something to drink and because of the good service we decided...to stay for the food as well. the prices are reasonable, the selection is good and the food was delicious. It's defenitely worth a visit.More

We went a couple times as the menu choices were good, reasonably priced and it was lovely to sit by the river. Friendly, helpful staff too.

A couple of tables next to the river in a small garden. It’s beautiful at night. The food is a bit strange: we had a some calamari rings and a fried rice. The calamari were terrible. The worst I’ve ever had : soggy and tasteless....Couldn’t finish. The fried rice was wonderful - a bit Chinese style (not to dry, and clear) with a lot of fresh seafood and a tiny omelette. How does the rest of food stack up between the delicious and disgusting ? Not sure i want to know.More

Really like the location of the cafe. You can eat right next to the river. I will enjoyed the laksa and the mango lassi. I wish they had more on the menu though. It’s a beautiful and quiet spot to eat away from the more...crowded tourist areas. Please consider adding more to the menu.More

This place has extremely limited options on the menu. Mostly beef dishes. Chicken chop size was not at all acceptable(Chicken piece was extremely tiny) against the pricing of it and the coleslaw with it was too runny. The brown sauce with it was ok. We...also tried the nasi goreng kampung however sadly it was also another disappointment. It was very bland and tasted more like jus rice fried in egg. I think they should really consider having more chicken dishes options too on their menu and also reconsider the food portion (especially the size of the chicken for chicken chop).More

This cafe has friendly staff, nice river view like lots of other restaurants. However, the menu is mainly western with few S.E. Asian or local dishes. Some of the local dishes were not even available including the Nasi Lemak chicken curry. The dishes we did...order were nice enough but nothing more. Desserts & drinks were average. A bit over priced for what's on offer. Then if you just enjoy the river breeze & a few alcoholic beverages, after a few, you won't care about the limitations. Paul T. Surrey, UK.More

We enjoyed sitting by the Melaka river in the evening in the eclectic surrounds of the River View Cafe. To the delight of our children they serve a range of Western food, although I found there local dish selection quite limited. Prices were very reasonable...and the food was very nice.More
