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

Good place, nice atmosphere and acceptable price. The only critic we have is that the food was not ordered at the same time. We recommend this place to have dinner and drinks there.

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
