This is a nice bar with good service and live singers which has plenty of atmosphere. Wish we had eaten here after a poor meal nearby. Well worth going to to be entertained.

We stopped and had wanted pizza but that was only served from 3.30 pm so we opted for a fried rice dish as well as some spring rolls. While the service was adequate the food was tasty.

A good vibe, good menu and good food. This is a popular place in Melaka, both locals and visitors alike. We enjoyed our one meal there.

This is a cafe that's perfectly located right in the middle of Jonker Street. After walking and eating and shopping in the heat and humidity the Geographer Cafe is the place to take a break for a drink if not more food.

I thought the place was pretty over rated although it is often packed and hard to get seats. Drinks and snacks were expensive as compared to other joints along the same street though it tasted average. Service was slow and so-so.

Ordered two Malay dishes and we were very pleased. The background music at this restaurant is enjoyable. Even though it was very busy during our visit, the service was outstanding and our food was delivered quickly. Will definitely eat there again.
