I have made The Geographer a regular stop any time I go to Jonker walk. It's a Restaurant/Bar right in the heart of Jonker street with tall tables and barstools easily accessible from the street. The ideal stop for a cold beer on a hot afternoon because of the numerous fans and water-mist cooled air around the entire perimiter of... More

Well located place catering primarily for Western tourists, which is also open mid week. Had a decent nasi goreng-style dish here, but the sate was a bit dry. Comfortable but a little over-priced.

This is a great little cafe in the old quarter of Melacca and is a great spot both for a meal or just to sit with a beer and watch the world go by. We had a geographers curry which was a vegetarian laksa style dish, and a chicken satay. Both were deliciously spicy and full of flavour - great,... More

We only ordered a pizza to share as we were not that hungry. It came on a ready made base and lacked flavour. I just expected a little more for the price you pay. Other food looked good I would just stay clear of the pizza.

We came here for lunch on the Saturday of Chinese New Year, and throughly enjoyed the food. Very tasty and arrived promptly. The vegetable curry was particularly good - spicy for those who like it. Reasonably priced and good portion. Service was a little slow, with a number of staff present but not on the ball, but still ok. Would... More
