A great place for a drink while enjoying the view and fresh ocean breeze. Get away from the hustle and bustle of Melaka.

The food was nice and the views were lovely. Fresh sea breeze. Prompt service. Our local friends ordered for all of us as we shared it between everyone. The lemon chicken was my favourite.
