Located right on Jonker Walk about mid way, in a prime corner spot. More of a pub than a restaurant, but it has a good vibe, and is not too noisy. The menu looks huge, but there is not much really to it - mostly...More

Overpriced food without any flavour. It's not Western, nor is it Asian. Our supposedly "Thai" chicken was dry as a bone, the crust was rock-hard and covered in what seemed to be off-the-shelf, rather than home-made, sauce that didn't taste like anything in Thailand at...More

The menu didn't look too bad, not great, but one or two veggie options in a country that is obsessed with eating dead chickens, was worth a try. The tables spill out onto the street so you can usually find somewhere at around 7 -...More

Good bar in a very nice building. Extensive menus and good selection of cocktails. Unfortunately when we were there, there was a woman “singing” which made the visit quite unpleasant because she could not sing. Otherwise good place!

Enjoyed a quite meal and a lovely cocktail at the Geographer Café. Great atmosphere in this renovated old building in the heart of the Jonker walk in Melaka.

It may look like a tourist kind of restaurant but if you give it a try, you‘ll be surprised by the quality of the food. On top, the staff is super kind and friendly. Good place for dinner.

When walking the streets of Jonker and Harmony on a hot day, full of tourists from a cruise, Geographer Cafe looked inviting from the street. Calvin our waiter, was quick to serve us and the food, although a little pricy, was delicious. We ordered what...More

This is a thriving cafe / bar / restaurant in a prime location on Jonkers street. Ask to sit upstairs if you can - quieter and cooler. The food varies a bit (from ok to very good) - stuck with anything described as local and...More
