Outstanding food and service. They look after you the moment you walk in, to the moment you leave. Fantastic service. The decor is amazing. You could not get bored. Something to see every time you look.

Sitting on the San Marco with a cup of Cappuccino and listening to their music is wonderful. Just realize that the music will cost you 6 Euros so enjoy it!

Easy to imagine Mozart popping in for a coffee and a slice of semi fredo Sacher Torte, the Caffe Florian has to be one of the most sumptuous of Venice's offerings. The squares of white chocolate that decorate the cakes even sport the Florian signature

We had 2 drinks - 1 iced coffee and a bottle of local beer. Came to €30. Of which €6 was to pay for listening to the string quartet they had playing. Tourist trap. Avoid.More

We arrived in St Mark's Square, thirsty, and in need of some "facilities". We willingly allowed ourselves to be persuaded to sit down at the inviting seats by one of the waiters on the promise of "toilets". Ok, we knew it was going to be...More

Not sure about Christmas Day, but I imagine Caffe Florian will be open during the festive period. It will have a great atmosphere in Winter- very cosy!
