Jonker Street is seriously lacking in places to get a stiff drink of anything alcholic so Bistro Year 1673 was a pleasant surprise. I ducked into this place to escape the human crush, hoping for a cold drink to take the edge off the humidty of the evening. What I found was a nice place with traditional decor, but serving...

We were looking for somewhere with Malaysian food we felt we could trust on our first evening in Melaka and in Malaysia. Menu easy to understand and service good and friendly. Price very reasonable for good quality. Music was too loud for our liking, but not unpleasant. We ate in the courtyard at back- there are tables in the corridor... More

We stopped here for a drink only as the place lacked atmosphere and was very smelly down the side which is where the tables with fans were located. The food looked plentiful though we decided not to eat due to the smell of the drains

Love this place.. sitting in the open alley of the restaurant between two old buildings is a must. Food is ok though would prefer more authentic peranakan. The music and the lovely singer who sings to your request is a plus!

We went here for an after dinner drink, enjoyed a nice selection of wines at a price not too much higher than supermarket, good music in an off-main garden setting. Snacks were very good, well cooked and served quickly

After walking around at Jonkers Night Market we decided to eat here. good Food and a Great Place. A little on the expensive side compared to everything close by. My sister forgot her baby carrier at night and when we called up in the morning the security informed us that they have it with them. In the afternoon when we... More

Nice courtyard setting. Oh dear, this is my third bad review of a restaurant near Jonker St. I need a new location. It seems that restaurants around Jonker St no longer make an effort for the large number of passing tourists. More poor quality white wine by the glass. It was chilled so that was good, I suppose. A tropical... More

We arrived Melaka from KL around lunch time and were starving. We started walking on Jonker Street and saw this nice place. It has an old look and tables outside on a courtyard. The environment is really good. There weren’t a lot of people and we seated at a table. After a long time we finally called a waiter attention... More

While the service has much to be improved, the food and relaxed ambience certainly made up for it. Try their pasta dishes and down it with a Corona beer... Just spellbinding!
