We had the beer bucket which was reasonably priced. Food was ok, but nothing special and the waitress was quite funny. They also have tables inside with kinda hipster decor - however we liked the place and especially their view should not be missed, but enjoyed if possible (small restaurant so not too many seats outside).

My husband, daughter and I had a short stay in Melaka over the Easter break. Our friends recommend this little spot, and we loved it. Great view, great food and the staff were very friendly. Our 2.5year old loved waving to the boats cruising by. We will definitely go back again.

A nice little joint on the river. I decided to get some food as the sun was setting and as the reds and purples fade from the skies the lights alongside the river shimmer across it. Very pleasant food, very reasonably priced and nice staff. Definitely recommend it for a relaxing, quiet evening meal.

We stumbled upon this place quite by chance and enjoyed a peaceful, relaxing lunch overlooking the river. The food was very good, chicken curry, rendang curry and mushroom soup, and we were very tempted by the desserts and the drinks. May have to come again to try some of them. Friendly and efficient staff and a location away from the... More

This restaurant serves good and reasonable food and tops it with great and attentive service. Really great promotion when every dessert cost you RM3.90 only with every main meal ordered. Desserts are good too. No GST nor service charge.

It's located by the riverside and the view is superb for dinner. Food is good and very cheap. No tax or svc charge. The desert was half price for each main course. Watch out for the mosquitoes especially in the evening. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Will go again.
