“Great food”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Granted, the service here is not top notch. It can be quite a challenge to even get a hold of some menues, and the food does take quite a while as well after being ordered. Still, the food is great, the coffee is great, and there really is quite a variety of things to try here. The place itself is picturesque and there is usually a very friendly and relaxed vibe. Recommended.

“poor service”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Starting it gaves me good feeling because of its heritage building, awesome live band and nice ambience but it is soon turn to be bad because of the poor service. We had been waiting for so long to wait the waiter provide us menu. Call for few times to place order but just ask us wait. And finally when we get to call a waiter to order they told us the kitchen just close. It is absolutely very disappointed.

“Delightful Euro/Local Dishes”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Has a good range of western and local dishes on offer with fresh seafood quite popular with the guests. Spicy local fare are also available at reasonable prices. Choice of seating on ground or first floor. Alcoholic drinks are pricey due to local tax and live music available most nights. Popular with many Caucasian tourists visiting this historic city

“The beating heart of Jonker Street.”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

When my girlfriend and I arrived we were greeted with a restaurant somehow making sense of a truly chaotic atmosphere. I would recommend this place just for that atmosphere. Sitting at a window seat upstairs, as downstairs was packed, we were able to dine whilst looking looking onto the crowded spectacle below. The food was simple but excellent and the prices reasonable. Unfortunately, my girlfriend and I were only in Melaka for one night. If we had more time we would have returned.
