“Great Seafood”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Well the "Average" rating i gave for this review is for the portuguese square. If only rate the seafood I would give "Excelent". Went for a late supper during a weekend break in Melaka. There were a lot of seafood restaurants there. We pick the first shop "Shop No 2" that still open, located facing the sea/straits while we walk over from carpark, we saw a few tables eating so gave it a try.
At first thought just another tourist place serving seafood, but all the seafood dishes that we ordered tasted great and surprisingly the price isnt expensive. We tried fish, prawns, clams, squids & nnoodles, all is fresh and nice. Service is good, the boss (or maybe is boss daughter) is really from portuguese descendan.

“Seafood Delight”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Enjoy seafood overlooking straits of malacca, the seafood is delicious and spicy but you may forgot the taste of spicy with the breeze from the sea.

“Nice lighted houses & tree during Christmas”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

Nothing to special on normal occasion. Happening & crowded during festival season especially Christmas. Because the local Portuguese will decorate their houses.

“Visit one night before or after Christmas!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

The residents really make it a point to decorate the outside of their houses for the festive season. Do a post-dinner walkabout and see them trying to outdo themselves.
