  • We were in the settlement on the feast of Saint Peter, one of which is best known in the area. We changed the route of our trip to Malaysia by the curiosity that this settlement was in us. The festival was quite curious, you could listen to FADO and see a mass Christian in English by the Melaka River. The views were beautiful, but Portuguese itself all you will see is many restaurants which include the words seafood and portuguese, with prices exaggeratedly high and nothing more. I don't know if the food is rich, it is worthwhile or not, but the prices are 10 more than in a normal restaurant in Melaka, just for being allegedly cooked to "Portuguese"

  • First impression when you got to this place is SCARY! All the store sellers are everywhere to promote their shop, they follow and some even beg. At last I've decided to trust TripAdvisor for the suggestion and it says store number 10. It's true and totally lives up to the name! Got to say it has got good service! And food is good too with reasonable pricing! Recommended!
  • Have been here a couple of times. The place to go for cheap and good seafood. My favourite is stall 6. All the dishes are tasty. My personal favorite and recommendation is the (Yan kok Crab) or salt crusted crab. It is amazing!
  • Great food, lots of people. As you are parking your car, be prepared to be swamped by local owners of the waterfront restaurants, asking you to come to their specific restaurant (it can be overwhelming)
  • You need to visit here. it's full of enjoyment and fune with sea flowing beside the restaurant. try it ones and you can't wait to be there again
  • Good place to enjoy some seafood... But it's really annoying with the hawker staff... Didn't let us sit & enjoy the nature... Keep tortured to choose their stall...

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.
