Perfect place to people watch while enjoying a good drink and local food. Had a good selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, and both local and western food, all for a reasonable price. Great for all religions- doesn't serve beef or pork. Definitely recommend!

Went here after walking a long time through jonker walk. The food was so so, nothing special but the singers were great. Beers are typical bar prices, not cheap.

Great little spot for watching life go by on Jonker Street. We stopped for a quick drink and a small bite to eat. They make probably the very best Mojito's I've had anywhere...there very best. I had the Pesto Pasta and my wife the Chicken Satay with peanut sauce.....all very good. Service was efficient and friendly. We sat outside and... More

Waiters were very friendly and welcoming but not as well informed about their menu. Still, it's a lovely spot for a drink and the food smelled amazing!

Like the rest of Malacca, alcohol is over priced. We were here on a weekday and it was very quiet. Very clean and attractive place yes.. but we aren't liking these prices for a street corner pub.

Food is great - multi cuisine. Good cocktails too. May have a live band over weekends - not sure tho. Excellent service and good ambience. In Jonker street. Will not disappoint you.

We sat outside just after a hot day was just about done for a beer. The table staff were very friendly and we ended up staying far too long after meeting some nice people there. Had a great time as the beers were ice cold and the food was delicious.
