Place to eat
“Hard Rock Cafe Melaka was designed to match the old charm of Melaka with the state of the art building and architecture. It is a comfortable dining area overlooking the infamous Dutch Square. Looking through the bar and out onto the river, what a view of the historical fort and church. The live band makes the atmosphere really nice. Service is attentive and food is served fast, true to their Hard Rock spirit.”

In a warehouse to the north of the Melaka River, the gallery has exhibits on the admiral’s life.

Flanking the front entrance of the museum are a drum and a bell tower.”
