Jonker Street is seriously lacking in places to get a stiff drink of anything alcholic so Bistro Year 1673 was a pleasant surprise. I ducked into this place to escape the human crush, hoping for a cold drink to take the edge off the humidty...More

We stopped here for a drink only as the place lacked atmosphere and was very smelly down the side which is where the tables with fans were located. The food looked plentiful though we decided not to eat due to the smell of the drains

Love this place.. sitting in the open alley of the restaurant between two old buildings is a must. Food is ok though would prefer more authentic peranakan. The music and the lovely singer who sings to your request is a plus!

We went here for an after dinner drink, enjoyed a nice selection of wines at a price not too much higher than supermarket, good music in an off-main garden setting. Snacks were very good, well cooked and served quickly

While the service has much to be improved, the food and relaxed ambience certainly made up for it. Try their pasta dishes and down it with a Corona beer... Just spellbinding!
