Ordered six tapas for four to share. Plenty of deliciousness to go around. Wait staff friendly & professional. Sangría is a must have.

Friends spoke to us very well about a bar called 1869, we had never been there so we decided to try it. The food we liked a lot, especially the tapas that we found exquisite.

Clean friendly restaurant. The quality of the food was great and the staff were all lovely. It has also really pretty views of the sea. Will definitely go back soon.

This bar has come on in the last few visits, staff are multilingual, however we try to order in Catalan. Wonderful place to sit and watch the beach below, with great views over to Roses over the bay. Tapas were generally good but not exceptional,...More

If you are planning a nice evening meal then 1869 is not the best place. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with the food- it just is not really up to nice meal standards- more snacky Good atmosphere in a lovely position though
