Nice ambiance, okay food

The ambiance was great, staffs were friendly and food was okay, pricey though. There was a live band playing when my friend and I went. Would visit again.

We visited on a Tuesday afternoon do all quiet on Jonker street. With only one other table occupied, yet lots of staff around, it seemed a long 25 mins to wait for two soft drinks and two draft beers. It makes you wonder how they cope on a busy evening. We didn't want to find out so avoided there the... More

An ideal setting to escape the hussle and bussle of Jonkers Street on a weekend evening... Enjoy a cold Tiger or Cocktail and the light bites on the menu are delicious but not exactly light (generous... More

The ambience is good. The western food & pizza is not as good as before. The chinese food is good, kudos to the chef. Have varieties of Cocktails & Mocktails. The band that is performing there is horrible!!! The song is sang out of tune. I believe the music is all karaoke as I notice that the keyboardist choosing song... More

We stumbled on this place by chance as we walked among the throngs of people visiting the night market on Jonker St. It is on the right hand side not that far from the bridge entrance of Jonker st. From a narrow opening the restaurant is set in a long courtyard ( there are obvious indoor spaces as well should... More

Really fun outdoor bistro with live music at night. We ate here twice and enjoyed every bite. Great people watching, too.

Had family midweek evening dinner. Restaurant busy but not full. Good menu , varied Malay and Western options. Food good and reasonable price. Alcohol served. Service friendly but real problems with timing of orders arriving at table. For main course took over 20 minutes between first of our group of 8 to be served and the last, who happened to... More

Nice environment, good personality of water and waitress, humble and friendly. Drawback : 1) Drink are not served in proper glass. 2) Drinks (cocktail) are not up to mark, check the glass used 3) Owner didn't train the waiter/waitresses on how to served the drinks 4) There is only one beer glass for Franziskaner beer in the whole restaurant/cafe 5)...

Jonker Street is seriously lacking in places to get a stiff drink of anything alcholic so Bistro Year 1673 was a pleasant surprise.
