This place closes early so make sure you don't head here late in the evening. Very much like a seaside bar. Obviously aimed at the daytime passing trade. Expensive for the poor quality service and food.

After being ripped off the day before by a sneaky service charge further down the street, finding this place for a lovely hot chocolate & watching the world go by was a godsend. No service charge, friendly staff & a welcoming place for just drinks...More

What a great place to sit right in the action on the side of the Canal, watching the world go by! The restaurant is very unassuming and have written their menu on a chalk board with no prices. We bought a Venetian beer, gin and...More

This restaurant was attractive because it didn't seem to have the Venice price tag of other establishments, or the cover charge. But this is the only positive. The food was Luke warm at best and not very nice, the staff seemed to be only interested...More
