Here is the best chicken rice ball in Malacca, much better than those so-called "best chicken rice ball". The texture of the chicken here is just nice, others are too soft. Other than the food, the restaurant is a historical building since 1673 from a Dutch family.

In a restored Tax Office for the Dutch East India Trading Company dating from 1673 this Bistro is a great place to escape the heat....Tons of local history and a very friendly and accomodating staff. Cold beer and some of the best fried eel that I have ever tasted. Prices are reasonable for the area and the entertainment at night is very enjoyable. A must stop for anyone visiting this UNESCO World Heritage site.

Was there last year too with family from Europe and always choose international food. This time we just shared a pizza that was crispy and tasty, seafood spaghetti excellent with lots of prawns and stuff and we rounded dinner off with their excellent Tiramisu.
Every time we get good service and enjoy the entertainment (Philippino band) - although we did not stay for the Borneo show (seen it in Santubong before)

We went for the first time in December 2010 when serving was better than now.

Now, in February 2012, we received the first drink, but others ordered not ever been, even though we ordered them 3 times! Commissioned desserts were not supplied at all ... They, too, we asked twice, and we waited for half an hour. The second time, ordered desserts were brought to the table before the main course (Melba icecream)!

Young waiters are having fun with each other, perhaps because orders are forgotten.

The place is cozy, live music ok but it could be more background music and less noise.
Group of dancers Borneo program number is childish.

Food is good, but if you get what you order.

We spent a really enjoyable evening at 1673 bistro.
I cannot see why people gripe when the menu is so reasonably priced if people want le blanc food quality you expect to pay for it.
The food at 1673 is good for the value you pay
Entertainment good fun staff really make the place especially sham a Villa fan to boot come on you lions !
