Always so popular and busy, this bar is perfect for coffee, drinks, tapas or snacks. The menu is extensive and you can always find something to satisfy everyone. The kitchen is tiny and the staff work so hard to service everyone. It is also a lovely place to just sit and watch the world go by.

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.

Food is average for a sea front place in L'Escala. What IS irritating is the pathetic sleight of hand by which they charge you as standard 10 cents extra on each item, pointing to the "small print" at the bottom of the menu, that imposes this extra charge for eating or drinking outdoors. (As if anyone in a sea side tourist resort would dream of doing anything else!- in fact, we were charged 65 cents above the quoted menu price for one item the other day). Why don't they signal on the menu the REAL price that most patrons will be asked to pay and flag up that there IS a discount for sitting indoors? If the EU hasn't or can't manage to outlaw this kind of thing, then roll on Brexit, Frexit, Irexit, Italexit, etc!

Apreciada Sra,
Lamentamos que esté disgustada porque la cuenta le subió 65 céntimos más por disfrutar de una cena frente al mar .
Por lo demás entiendo que todo fué correcto.
La esperanos ver pronto!

This bar is a fantastic little find. The food is great and service even better. My family were treated like royalty by Luis, Morgan and Sylvia for the 10 days we visited Bar 1869.
Highly recommended, if for no other reason than to meet these 3 lovely members of staff.

Ordered a light lunch for the kids, large frankfurter sandwich which is pretty big! Drinks for the adults and a sharing plate of patatas bravas. Food is really good and was thoroughly enjoyed by the kids. Service not 100% on this occasion but okay. Nice place to eat and look out at the sea.
