Pros: Nice breeze and view, live solo performance throughout the meal. Cons: Mosquitoes Food was average and still in search for better Peranakan food.

The place is great you have view on the bay leading to the sea. There's a small beach with table to enjoy beers and dinner. The view is amazing. The waiters are very helpful. The menu is nyona food and really delicious. They also have good fresh juice and coconuts. It's a bit out of malacca town but worth the... More

A great place for a drink while enjoying the view and fresh ocean breeze. Get away from the hustle and bustle of Melaka.

The food was nice and the views were lovely. Fresh sea breeze. Prompt service. Our local friends ordered for all of us as we shared it between everyone. The lemon chicken was my favourite.

The quiet location by the sea with great views was good and restaurant was spacious with sheltered and open air options. Service was a bit slow - but it was... More

Lucky we arranged that as very difficult to get back otherwise. The restaurant is on a beach, set out on the water and open on 3 sides. It's a nice spot... More
