They managed well with an unexpected group on a Monday night. Food - good, wine selection - good. Live entertainment was a bonus, and they coped very well with a group booking (12+ ) who just walked in. Half had a traditional set meal/menu, half ordered a-la-carte...and even when the orders didn't 'quite' match they delivered the missing meal without... More

We ate there this lunchtime and we were very disappointed. Our first impression was very favourable as we had a very helpful young waitress who took us to our table, put on mobile air conditioning for us and took our order. From that point things went down hill. We both had a starter, my soup arrived which I ate and... More

We are here when we were in Melaka several months ago and were very happy with the meals then, so we returned again yesterday. We were not disappointed. The kids had linguine, chicken in lemon sauce, fried pineapple rice with additional chicken and prawns (my young son's recipe), fries!, whilst we ate fried Kia lan, fried chicken breast with chilis...

My first choice across the street had already closed, and I stopped in here on impulse. The courtyard was attractive and fans made a nice breeze. I had a cocktail, which was only average, but decided to stay for supper anyhow. Overall it was a good experience, though far from great. Ordered lamb shank with a garam masala sauce. It... More

We went to try it out mainly because not much else was open around jonker street. We had margerita pizza, assam fish, kai lan, okra sambal and a stir fry beef. It was very average. Vegies were old and tough and we found some plastic in our fish. When we told staff it was laughed at and that was the... More

Having dinner or some drinks at the outdoor of the restaurant is quite relaxing. Food is average, not bad. Have variety of choices as well (western and eastern cuisines). The mixed fruit juice they served is quite special where they will put pieces of the fruit on the glass. Therefore you can easily identify which glass of the mixed fruit... More

We stopped here when other places were closed. My husband tried to order 2 common dishes that they were out of. What he did order he says wasn't that good--sweet and sour chicken and venison. My daughter and I had pepperoni pizza. Not like American pizza but was pretty good. On the plus side, the fruit drinks were good as... More

Came across this restaurant by chance as we were walking up and down Jonker Street looking for a place to have dinner. Set in a beautiful old building and had great atmosphere. It was a very warm day so we opted to sit inside although the courtyard looked interesting. We could not fault the food which was delicious. The Taj... More

Is a very good place to have dinner and enjoy the live music. The dinner was amazing. We had go there just for dinner and ended staying all night until it closed because all the people working there were 5 stars and the music was wonderfull. I will never forget melaka because of that amazing dinner.

Went to a birthday bash at the Bistro 1673, on Jonker street in Meleka. I have to say the service was impeccable the ambience amazing and the food excellent. The food is a little overpriced compared to other eateries but worth it. Definitely a good place to go but I would say it is probably more vibrant and busier at... More
