Bert’s Garden Seafood is exactly what you will be looking for. Located along Jalan Kampung Pinang B with a picturesque view of the Straits of Melacca, dining at Bert’s Garden’s open-air dining area after a long day of traveling is plain relaxing.

The seafood offered here is fresh and most importantly; most of the seafood is grilled with charcoal flames which lock in the flavor and moisture. 

You can’t go wrong with any of their seafood options. 

We recommend the: grilled prawns, grilled red snapper, and black pepper crab. 

To pair with the amazing seafood, do get the Nasi Lemak as the rich fluffy rice compliments well with the seafood’s freshness. If you feel like splurging a little, Bert’s Garden does cook up one of the tastiest lobsters in Melaka. 

If you are craving something non-Asian, Bert’s Garden does offer some classic Western dishes such as Fish and Chips, Chicken Chop, Spaghetti, and Salads. Bonus tip, come in the early evening to catch the sunset view by the Straits of Melacca!

The Portuguese arrived in Melaka in 1509 and today it is not unusual to find Portuguese influence in Melaka’s cuisine. 

To make things easier to hunt for Portuguese seafood in Melaka, there is a Portuguese Settlement here in Melaka and Monterios Portuguese Seafood Restaurant is one of the many stalls here. How convenient!

If you are here at Monterios Portuguese Seafood Restaurant, you definitely need to try the Portuguese Style Grilled Sting Ray. Wrapped in a foil, the stingray was topped with homemade chili paste, garnished with refreshing onions, and grilled in charcoal flames. Simply delicious.

Don’t shy away from the other seafood options they have to offer too! 

Butter garlic prawns, salted egg crabs, and garlic clams are some of the crowd’s favorites. Do be cautious when you have arrived at the area as many other stalls’ staff may try to lure you to their shop instead.

4. Restaurant Tong Sheng

Conveniently located in the central town of Melaka, Restaurant Tong Sheng is no foreign name when it comes to seafood in Melaka. 

Upon stepping into the restaurant, you will notice a side of the wall with photos of the restaurant’s owner with celebrities. Certainly a good sign of the food they serve!

The seafood here is undeniably fresh but loyal patrons come back to the one dish which is pretty unique in this restaurant which is the Cheese Prawn Mee Hoon (Vermicelli). It may sound weird but the cheesy flavor is delightfully light and goes well with the savory broth. 

For some good crab in Melaka, the fresh milk crab is another crowd favorite which is a stir-fried crab with a cream-based sauce with a flavor profile leaning towards the sweet and spicy end that is definitely mouth-watering. 

Tip! If you want to avoid a long waiting time for seats, do try to arrive at the restaurant at 6 pm in the evening.

You will be spoilt for choice with the huge variety of seafood offered here; Clams, prawns, squids, cockles, crabs, and many types of fish. 

Similar to most seafood restaurants, they offer an extensive amount of methods to cook your choice of seafood. Seafood aside they do have stir-fried vegetables, omelet, otak-otak, quail bird, and paper-packed nasi lemak to go with the amazing seafood.

Heads up, you will have to queue at the counter to make your orders. 

It is not too bad as you could plan your orders as you queue! Also, they don’t allow reservations on weekends. Plan your trip accordingly! 

Tip! Dining by the river sounds cool but it also invites mosquitos! I’d recommend to get yourself a mosquito repellent

9. Restaurant Hock Chin

Going through this list, most of the seafood in Melaka restaurants seem to serve pretty heavy meals.

 If you want to opt for some lighter seafood in Melaka, Restaurant Hock Chin is the place to be. Though I have to say, it is a little out of the way from the city center. But for good food, we travel!

10. Simply Fish Restaurant

Despite its name, the restaurant does not simply just serve fish as part of its menu. 

However, the star of the menu is the Fish and Chips, and has been pretty consistent in terms of quality. Other than that, Simply Fish menu is a pretty standard Malaysia’s Western Restaurant that serves pasta, chicken chop, salads, prawns, and crabs.

If you want a bit of everything, get the seafood platter! It has fish and chips, chicken chop, creamy mussel, grilled prawns, fried oysters, and butter rice. Perfect for a small family meal.

11. City Famous Seafood Restaurant

We can all agree that home-cooked meals are the best meals. Well, good news! City Famous Seafood restaurant is a family-run business and their cooking style is very much similar to Chinese home cook. 

This little humble shop is best known for their “Assam Pedas” fish (sour and spicy!) and definitely calls for a plate of rice to mop up the amazing sauce. 

Don’t miss out on ordering the Sambal Squid, Prawns, and Petai (Stink bean) too! Although it is not a halal-certified restaurant, Muslims can be seen dining here too. 

However, locals have reported that prices may be a little more steep compared to other restaurants. But good food, it is definitely worth the penny!
