Had a terrible Friday morning at this spot.
Most menu items we wanted to order were not available. Nobody even apologised.
The place smells fried food.
The music they play doesn’t match the concept or style of the place, very annoying. Even when we asked to change it nobody cared.
The description of the menu items are not exactly matching the result you get on your dish.
The omelet was really oily, bread was not fresh.
The only fish I liked is a French toast.

Had visited this cafe with friends for a late lunch. The menu is a mishmash of different cuisines has no defined theme to it, the dishes presented in a random manner although we had selected starters and mains. The taste of the food is like itbwas taken out of a box or thawed in a microwave.
The cafés atmosphere and theme is weird, there is the outside area, then an inside area which is dark, a studio area where peoplw were painting and upstairs was the kitchen and some odd reading/meeting room?.
The staff were constantly busy or unavailable when needed although we were the only busy table that day.
The building itself and decor needs a bit of maintenance and cleaning.
Not recommended.

We had an amazing time at this wonderful and cozy Restaurant. Our group of friends reserved an Iftar dinner. The staff made the whole experience so memorable. They were so friendly, professional and the food was amazing... They rearranged their whole studio to accommodate our group.
1868 is one of my favorite restaurants in Abu Dhabi.
