Capers Restaurant, Malacca
Tel: 60 6 284 8888
Concierge.com's insider take:
Melaka's swankiest restaurant has silver flatware, crystal glasses, linen tablecloths, and exceptionally attentive service. Something of a splurge for Malacca (although inexpensive by American standards), meals here are worth every ringgit. The menu revolves around meat and seafood cooked on a charcoal grill. The chef also uses Continental methods to prepare Asian ingredients, with happy results: An entrée might be sea bass with a ginger-dill sauce, bok choy, and potatoes. The fairly extensive wine list includes some great Portuguese selections.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 6:30 to 10:30 pm.
