                                This restaurant is totally overpriced. The food is ok but definitely not worth the money. The choices are limited and not very tempting. The service was nothing to remember about. The ambiance was boring, almost cold with strange and loud music. We didn’t feel comfortable and this is just not a classy place as we had expected.

                                This was one of the most memorable restaurants I’ve ever been. Table by the water, romantic music, view of the spectacular architecture of Venezia, and of course… wonderful service! Starting with the hostess Ms. Kylie Palazzo who went far and beyond to help me propose to my now fiancé. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and on point with recommendations. Truly a must! But make sure you have reservations with time! Next time I’m in Venezia, I will certainly come back!

                                We got a very nice table on the terrace by the water. Service was great and all the waiters were very helpful. Starters and main courses we ordered were a bit below the expectations - one of the steaks was a bit too dry for being medium,but deserts and wine selection compensated it all. Prices are a bit too high,but generally everything was great.

                                Sehr schönes Ambiente, aber schwer zu finden, da das Restaurant unklar beschrieben ist! Sollte klar zum Hotel zugeordnet sein mit entsprechendem Wegweiser Das Essen exzellent in einem traumhaften Umfeld

                                Lovely restaurant but I would not go back. The restaurant did not allow us to sit outside. The pancakes were from the hot breakfast menu but were cold. Overly expensive for what you get.

                                The view is amazing. The staff is great. But the food is so over priced. You can eat in MANY places that the food is going to be so much better. To much worry with aesthetics and no worry with flavors.

                                A lovely experience overall - food was very nice, the sea food risotto was exquisite. The red negroni is arguably one of the best I have ever had. The service was thorough and attentive, and helpful suggestions were made by the service staff from time to time. One small annoyance - mosquitoes. It really spoilt the experience towards the end when it got darker. My bad for forgetting to wear repellent, maybe the restaurant can prepare some just in case next time?

                                amazing view when sitting outside. We had a table in the first row in the sunset. An experience we’ll never forget! We’ll definitely come back next time! Really good service. Price is fair, for what you get! a 0.5L Pepsi for 9€ is a bit pricey though.

                                We came here for a birthday brunch on Tuesday 21st and it was the perfect place to celebrate. The views, the staff, even the weather was perfect. The staff went above and beyond giving us free champagne and chocolate strawberry’s, none of which we expected. We talked about how good the food was all day. We would definitely recommend and love to come back one day, and would love to stay in the hotel next time too. It was stunning. Thank you for the best experience.

                                The description for this restaurant was that it is fairly reasonable and cosy, relaxed, casual. It is both very expensive and formal which we did not expect and therefore did not enjoy.
