Great ambience on busy Jonker Street. The service was ok at the time because there were not many customers. The Laksa and Mee Goreng were great. Fish and Chips was passable. Don't think the juices were fresh as the claimed it to be. Nice pit stop during a hot shopping walk.

It was a weeknight so Jonker St was a bit quiet and not a lot of dining places are open. We were enticed by this place's very cozy and nice ambiance, situated in an old, rustic house. The place is great, however, service is really bad. I got my food after more than an hour of waiting (it was for... More

Discovered this little gem on a busy Saturday night at Jonker Street. We just popped in for a drinks as already snacking while shop around at Jonker Street. The entrance was thought an alley but the alley walk way separated the busy Jonker Street with the restaurant. The atmosphere of the restaurant was calm with live blue, jazz, oldies and... More

We don't normally go for restaurants with music and were a bit concerned when a musician and 2 singers started up but they were very good and volume level was not intrusive The food and service were very good and could recommend the Tiramasu The prices were also very reasonable

Not many restaurants open in the evening in Jonker Street. We found Bistro Year 1673 open so gave it a try on our first evening in Melaka. We had good service from a lovely yet busy waitress and the food was well prepared and as expected. Then the music started.... Wow! the singer had a stage presence, she won't be... More

Went here as a more pricey meal out to treat ourselves. Owner told is every night they played traditional, live Malaysian music. It was actually a Malaysian woman singing cheesy western songs accompanied by a guy on a keyboard. Kind of ruined the atmosphere especially when she tried to persuade diners to do karaoke between each song. Food wasn't that... More

I reached to the bistro at 815pm hungry and excited for a hearty meal and the first person to greet me and my friends was a security guard (even gave us menu, clean the table etc. WAITER was no where to be found!). When we were ready to order, we called out to the waiter only to get them ignoring... More
