Yeah, yeah, yeah, the food and service is very good, and the ambience unique. Go there and eat for sure. But what you really want to do is, whether or not you need to use their restroom or not, is to, after you order, take a stroll from your table back to the restroom anyway. It is far in the rear of the building, through a narrow passage way past the kitchen and a number of rooms and areas that will transfer you to another time and place. Just do it!

Baboon house located in the heart of Melaka, parallel street with Jonker walk. I was amazed by how they turned historical building to nice restaurant but still preserving its old charm. I definitely fell in love with the place. Service was fast. Staffs were really welcoming. BUT I was disappointed by the food. The cheese burger was just average. I didn’t like that they put some kind of spice in the meat. Mint ice tea was excellent though.

In conclusion, I would come here for the ambient, but surely not for the food.

A total recommendation for the ambience and the burgers. Very friendly and efficient servers. Only disappointment was the fact that some tourists ignore the house rules when it comes to "no photographs please"

Although they were shutting at 6pm, they kindly let us stay and order at 5:55pm & even allowed us to wait for a friend to arrive.
I had the Aloha burger and it was big & delicious!! The wedges were a nice alternative to fries for once.
Semi-expensive for Asia, but still very cheap for the Western world, so if you’re really craving a burger & can wrangle your budget slightly - I would definitely recommend!
Oh! And they have a (very obedient) puppy!!!!
