We dined with friends (two couples) at 1868 to celebrate a special occasion. Based on other reviews we anticipated an overall excellent experience. We were disappointed although I’d be willing to give it another shot because I think the potential for greatness really is there....More

Even though it was chilly on the night we were there, we insisted on sitting on the patio so we could hear the music coming from the Music Festival in the old city. They thought we were crazy but relented and let us eat there....More

At the recommendation of the Mamilla concierge we booked a reservation at 1868. We arrived early in order to try the adjoining Kuta bar. The mixologist served great drinks however he was a tad arrogant with his accommodations. At 1868 we ordered the tasting menu...More
