Lovely spot by a canal, with the last rays of the November sun lighting up the facades. Good honest food, reasonably priced. Obviously also attended by locals.
We had arranged an outside table with our hotel concierge but upon arrival it had been given to another party. The staff brought an indoor table outside and made a special place for us by the canal - it was almost a private dinner. Very attentive. Food is good - nothing stands out but the overall experience was delightful.
We came here by accident. The waitress was lovely, the wine delicious and the seafood platter and risotto excellent, well-cooked and fresh. The price was reasonable for seafood. We will certainly come back one day. To the people who did not like their chicken - try the seafood, you're in Venice!
Serious Varning! Amazing bad! I cancelled my second dish and didn't eat my Anti pasti at all. Paid the food so far (even the bad wine, without drinking it) and went to another place nearby called "chef Domenico" with top 5 food!
My wife and I wandered into the Al Mariner at the end of our Mediterranean Cruise. It appeared to be more of a neighborhood restaurant, exactly what we were looking for. A rustic place with a prominent bar. We were seated near the rear of the bar area. The food was good. The service friendly and prompt. Unfortunately, we were... More
I swear this was the worst meal I have ever eaten. We had been advised that the so called “tourist menu" away from the main tourist tracks was perfectly OK. We were away from the action on a small canal - how wrong! The 16 E dinner menu included an entree and main. We selected entrees of spaghetti al pesto... More
This is a great local bar - especially if like us you are staying in a nearby hotel but like to get to grips with the local feel. The ciccheti are great as is the wine and generally the staff are friendly - more so in the evening than in the day! It's a really great place to hang out,... More
The restaurant has a good location, beside a canal, and far enough from the crowds. We had the fish risotto and a caraf of house wine, both of which were very good. Pleasant service and reasonable price, although you can certainly find cheaper if you walk further along the canal. The tables outside were mainly taken by tourists, while the... More
We discovered the Fondamenta della Misericordia area one lunchtime and we were so impressed that we returned that evening. It's full of inexpensive (for Venice) trattoria and other small restaurants. Al Mariner specialises in Cicchetti and seems to be full of Venetian workers at lunchtime all eating off communal tables full of small dishes. The woman behind the bar doesn't... More
