The views here are exceptional and the food is good but far too overpriced. This place could be so mush more...but if i be honest i would re visit just for the views!!!

Had lunch here a couple of times while on holiday in the area, the food is really good, a change form your usual beach fare. Perhaps a little expensive for some of the dishes but worth a trip .

This little cafe is right on the beach of Blackpool Sands, open all day and in the evening, we didn't think we ended to book but I went in to make sure and was told they were fully booked the entire week! However the lady serving me was lovely and said she would be able to squeeze us in within... More

I was extremely angry and quite surprised when I was unable to buy a vegetarian salad?!?! obviously leaving the meat off was far to taxing for the highly skilled kitchen staff. The food is extremely poor and overpriced….when you spend nearly £3 on a 'Sicilian Lemon Luscombe' you expect the whole bottle rather than a plastic cup. This has definitely... More

We decided to take another trip to what we thought was still a wonderful venus cafe for a full english breakfast. The inside seating area was quite packed & there was many screaming children, so we decided to sit outside along the glass front being as the view of the beach is wonderful. I'm afraid after that it wen't downhill.... More

We had been advised to give this eatery a try and so glad we did. It might be called a cafe but the quality of food and service was equal to many restaurants less deserving of the title.The location was superb as was the food (we had the hake). The service could not be bettered and it did not end... More

We have visited Venus for an evening meal as a family for the past few years. The menu, location and service can not be faulted. Compared to similar menus in the local area, the price is also reasonable.

Set on the stunning blackpool sands beach, this is cafe should blow you away. The menu promises much, but unfortunately it just didn't really deliver (shell in crab sandwich, underwhelming pre-prepared ingredients in salad, ludicrous oversized children's meals). Also service slow and they forgot about us entirely, meaning we had to reorder for hungry children. Decently reimbursed for food, and... More

Large nicely fitted out restaurant with pleasant upmarket young staff. However it is pricey for what it is. I expect to be served at their prices. I object to standing in a long queue to place my order whilst customers hum & ha about what they want & lad at counter fumbles with the orders.He also has to make the... More
