We should have read the reviews before we went! What a disappointment. With all the history attached to the place I was expecting to be wowed. It's like sitting in a 1950's Conservative Club only with better waiting staff. I suppose the charm is that it hasn't changed but quite frankly it must have... read more

REALLY??? At the height of the tourist season? Four of us were shocked to find the place locked up tight as a drum at 11:30 on a Saturday night.

Location and drinks are excellent a must see when in Venuce, especially the first time! We have been before and thus lace never disappoints. There are a lot of resturants and bars in avenue but few with thus kind of history, of course the Belini is the chosen drink!

It doesn't look like much when you enter the bar but just knowing that the Bellini was created here and that Hemingway sat upstairs and wrote one of his books gives you a special feeling. We only had a Bellini each and it was very expensive but also very tasty. I don't regret my visit.

We finally relented and dove head first into the world that is Harry's Bar. It was on our way to dinner and the plan was a short stop for a quick drink. Forget the plan. We were seated in the bar in front (long pants for men required) where we settled in at a small table (redundant in Venice bars)... More

We were advised it was a 'must go to' bar. I had a summer dress and my friend had smart shorts and a top. We were looked up and down then ushered upstairs with mumbles of a certain dress code. It was dark and dingy upstairs, no view. We ordered 3 gin and tonics and one Bellini ( no wine... More

The best we could was get a 'photo op' and a quick look inside. No dressed properly, and did not bring a big enough wad of cash. Novel, cute, and off the bucket list!

We walked in with great expectation to find a rather small little restaurant on the ground floor that was astonishingly hot with no air conditioning. As the restaurant was full, we decided to try the famous Bellini's that come from this bar. They were extremely good accompanied with snacks. But as with all thing Venetian just two rounds of Bellini's... More

A bit pokey, but a landmark, efficient staff, good drinks, if you have time to spare give it a go but not a must see.

... You must visit Harry's! Like a gondola ride, Harry's is a must visit location in Venice and although it is VERY expensive, there are just some things in life which are worth the money for the memories. Harry's is unassuming and you get the sense you've walked into a scene from the godfather. Of course we had a Bellini... More
