We were staying at the Majestic Melaka so it made sense to give the restaurant a try for dinner. As the remainder of the hotel was wonderful it was quite a surprise that the dinner was very very disappointing. A lack of menu options which are largely hawker style food choices at a terribly inflated price. The greatest disappointment was... More

We found it vet difficult to find an upscale restaurant in Melaka. We were staying at the Majestic Hotel and the dining room there was the answer. The limited menu features some Malaysian, Indian and western selections. Attentive service in a wonderfully cool traditionally elegant dining room. The food was not outstanding but it was tasty and good value. They... More

The restaurant is housed in a historic mansion and there is a pianist playing old time favourites over dinner. The place has. Good breakfast spread. Dinner however is not up to standard given the ambience. It is local hawker fare served in a more upmarket way but is overall lacking in imagination, taste and culinary skill.

I would like to thank the Chef for preparing a Fried Prawns to accompany our drinks at the bar and for preparing a delicious Vegetarian Nasi Goreng to my wife... and much more. Hospitality, smile and tasty, well presented food when desired this is the pleasure.

Lack of choice and food to a poor standard whilst retaining a high price. More effort needed and clearly room for improvement

Enjoyed the food, especially the Melaka Laksa, in the restaurant. Breakfast buffet is good and gets replenished up till the closing time! Enough available.

Serves a great buffet breakfast with a choice of cooked mains, local coffee or tea. A fantastic local touch is their offer of local fruits with the buffet however it wasn't fresh even though it was suppose to be. All the local fruits were prepared much earlier and not the morning itself. It's a shame for a restaurant of this... More

Great local food! Excellent service. Live piano. Limited choices. Colonial building and decor. A definite must try for the ambiance.

This restaurant at the Majestic was truly excellent - so much so we ate there twice during our stay. We can highly recommend it.

The ambiance is rather formal although the staff are attentive and very friendly. The mood enhanced by the pianist if you like the tinkling of the ivories. The menu is Malaysian. The food was good but we tasted better else where and decided a second visit was probably not desired.
