Nice cafe where you sit smack on the square itself. Beautiful views, waiters are fine. Of course the cost of a Latte goes up to $15 but one does pay for the privilege of the view.

The worst mojito I've ever tasted. Just a mount of ice for 16 euro. When I told them I did not like it, they replaced it, this time just water with lemon.

Terrible service.. very bad attitude! In particular the staff named Simone was extremely rude and unwelcoming! So appalled by this. Never coming here again!

What a great place to sit and get out of the rain. Area is beautiful and staff attentive. I had a Bloody Mary and it was made table side. Unique and it hit the spot. Music was very enjoyable.

We enjoyed lunch here, overlooking the Doge's Palace. Food (hot chicken and cheese sandwiches, gelato and tiramisu), coffee and Service were great. Very good music being played by a jazz trio too.

There are few resultants in the area with live music, this one is the closest to the sea and it was so romanic to sit, enjoy the music and get the cool breeze of the sea. Though there is no much variety of food.

If you want to pay 13.50€ for a small Coke while eating very poor quality food and being defecated on by pigeons then this is the place for you. We should have seen the food mesh screens placed over everyone food as a warning sign....More

We used their take-away service a few times a day, either getting an ice cream or a drink and one occasion, a pizza slice; I did consider their seated service but the prices are ridiculous and most of the seated customers looked miserable for being...More
