A wonderful and welcome break in beautiful location

Lovely Aprerol spritz cocktail in St Marks Square. Beautiful location to stop and take a break and recharge the batteries after a hard mornings site seeing. Waiters were friendly. Gave us a lovely spot. Nice large glasses supplied along with crisps and pretzels. Lovely. Many thanks for making this easy. We had heard horror stories about costs of drinks in St Marks Square. The voucher made it a very easy transaction.

Well worth it

Just down from the very crowded St Marks Square and a slightly quieter area. It was lovely to go and relax while enjoying my drink and snacks while people watching and seeing the beautiful views over the canal. There were plenty of tables when I went and I was glad I bought the voucher otherwise I’d have probably just kept wandering. The waiters are lovely and polite and very well dressed in white jackets, so all in all it was a lovely experience.

Prestation impeccable

La prestation prévoyait l'apéro consistant à nous servir du spritz. Suite à une fin de journée de marche intensive sous une chaleur plutôt accablante, nous avions apprécié que le bar accepte de nous faire remplacer les boissons prévus par une bonne coupe de glace, chips et eau fraiche. L'addition intégrait le prix de la réservation prépayée. De quoi conclure la visite de la cité qui touche à sa fin de façon rafraichissante dans un cadre inoubliable.
