Centrally located on Maleka's Jonker Street, the iconic Geographér (so iconic they spell it with an accented é) attracts by virtue of its unique tropical greenery on the outside and the ecclectic decor inside which seems to bring together at least six centuries of history.
As in the past, the restaurant/café/bar lures people of all nationalities and offers menus accordingly - many fusing east/west tastes: (we ate deliciously Malay-spiced soja balls served with a best-in-class original Italian tomato sauce). It was so good, we couldn't resist coming back after our Jonker shopping spree to sample the excellent cheese cake, washed down with a strong and authentic Italian cappuccino.
Service is friendly, welcoming and efficient - and smiling.
The Geographér serves a wide range of drinks (including a broad assortment of beers) and is so popular it's opened a sister branch opposite.
In a city with a lot of history but few attractions, the Geographér almost alone justifies a trip. Viator Coloniae

Definitely a place to stop for an Ice Cold Beer during your walk in Jonker Street on a Hot and Humid afternoon. Nice chill out place at night

I am pretty sure this is the most happening bar in jonker street. The drinks and desserts here are very good. Prices are not so high. There is live band as well. The service as very good. A must go!

First of all i really like the music they played! First some salsa, latin and then jazz.
We wanted a light dinner and ordered some snacks. And coconut juice. All was so delicious. The spring rolls and the naan with curry! Specially the wedges are so crunchy. Had here my best potatoe wedges ever!

We spent our first dinner in Melaka in this nice restaurant in central Jonker Walk. Menu is maybe a bit too vaste, including a range of dishes going from malay food to malay "pizza". We tried some malay food, which was fine. Friendly staff. Improvement suggestion: the live singer was a bit too loud and not always on pitch :)
