We chose to sit and drink coffee here already knowing it was going to be pricey! We are mad! Two café latte, a panini and a toastie cost the best part of 50 euro! And the food was not that great either. The coffee was...More

Best hot chocolate I have ever tried. Super rich! If you like people watching, go ahead and have a seat. But be warned. The price goes up almost triple just for a seat. If you are on a budget just get a take away or...More

Aperol Spritz x 2 or 4, I honestly cannot remember, this now being my favourite cocktail. Lovely staff, very entertaining, not expensive, lovely views, a great time had for two, just me and my girlfriend.

The coffee is expensive, but the view is incredible and the coffee service is very elegant and relaxing - worth the price when you need a nice rest and soak up the Venetian atmosphere.

Almost on the water, this geleteria offers all of what you'd want at a lower price than some of its competitors on St.Mark's itself. Its a different view, that of the waterway and well worth it.

Very expensive. €60.00 for four beers. Normally €10.00 for one beer! Nice area to sit down in the sunshine. I should have looked at the price in the menu.

Spotted this establishment immediately after disembarking Alilaguna vaporetto from Marco Polo to San Mark's. Definitely the nicest place to sit near the square on a sunny day. A Tasty bellini with chips 11 euros. Never bothered to go to Harry's, see the photos of both...More

It was mid-day and blazing hot, and this was a very nice place to sit under the parasols, enjoy the breeze, relax and admire the beautiful view in front of St. Mark's square. You pay extra for the view and elegant service, but we did...More
