Been almost 2 years I stopped eating McDonald's but the burger in baboon house was soooooo good. Very juicy and nice environment too.

I walked in looking at the setup but found it a little overpriced compared to the quite average quality of fare that they serve.But the choice of items is quite huge.

The place and the food are befitting of each other - just beautiful. It is lovely to look around whilst you wait for your food, which is just superb. Highly recommend...

Great little cafe for lunch, very quaint artistic setting. Something different from all the usual Malaysian chicken rice etc you can find in any Malaysian town. Owner has thought a lot about the offering. Western food though..

As a veggie, I was overjoyed when the waiter came over to tell us about the daily special which was a delicious falafel burger. Food was top notch, the drinks were healthy and tasty, the building is beautiful - covered in plants and antiques. All...in all it’s rather an instagramable spot.More

Visiting Melaka post lockdown I decided to try this restaurant located off Jonker Street. Having tried many burgers around the world I was blown away by how good the burgers I tried were. Go for the lamb or pork patties. Restaurant is hard to find...as hidden from the road.More

A must to visit when in Malacca. This beautiful building with stunning architecture is a fabulous place to go for brunch or just a coffee. We enjoyed an excellent brunch. Food was delicious! Many options available from breakfasts, baguettes to burgers. Great atmosphere. We will...return when back in Malacca.More

It was recommended that we try The Baboon House for lunch by a friend who is an avid traveler and a food connoisseur! We were not lead astray! WOW!! this place is fabulous! From the amazing decor to the very scrumptious burgers on the menu,...this place did, not disappoint!! So many options on the menu to choose from, it was hard to decide! While we waited for our food we wandered back through the old home to see all the fascinating artwork on the walls. So tastefully decorated, it was like being transported back in time! I will most definitely recommend this place to my friends and will be back again the next time I am in Melaka.More

Popped here for lunch whilst waiting for our hotel check in to be available. Due to the size and popularity you may have to wait to be seated, but service is quick and it shouldn't be for long. The portions are excellent value for money...and its handy location to places such as Jonker Street and the Baba & Nyonya Museum should make sure it goes on anyone's list of places to eat when visiting Melaka.More
