Knowing how expensive Harry's Bar was going to be we had made sure to save for a little treat whilst in Venice. We located the bar (just off St. Mark's Square) but to be honest from the outside if we had not known what to look for we would have walked right by it. We opened the door to enter... More

Rude staff, but had to be done. You will get a better drink (even better Bellini) elsewhere, but this place has the history. Worth one quick visit, but then go somewhere else for the evening.

Everyone comes to Harry's to say they have been there. Home of the Bellini's it is more about people watching than anything.

OK, even though you know it's a tourist trap, you have to go once. Not bad inside, comfortable in fact. Have the famous Bellini, pay the money and check it off your list.

canot really tell you much about this place but we're making the pilgrimage to the supposed home of the Bellini and were even prepared to take out the second mortgage for two costing 20 euros each. Yes each not for two. However despite the terrace being virtually empty and a waiter busying himself avoiding customer eye contact sat for 10... More

Wow! It had been a while since we'd been to Harry's and this visit did not disappoint! The customer service is second to none and the bellinis and food are delicious! I had the local fish, cuddle fish, not sure I spelled that right. It was delicious! The prices are a bit steep but do not hesitate! It's the best!!!!

Very very very expensive! A mini glass if 1dl of cheap prosecco for 10 euros and not even cacahouetes or chips to go with it! Atmosphere? What atmosphere? Old but not vintage... Just old and smelly... To conclude: not worth it!

Sure Harry's is overrated, overpriced, and impossibly snooty. Come on, people -- that's why you go in the first place. Who wouldn't want to sit beneath one of the bar's framed period Venice maps, scribbling in a notebook, pretending to be the next Hemingway? Perhaps with a prosecco strategically placed in the inevitable selfie (wine, for some arcane reason, not... More

We felt we had to go and drink a bellini in Harry's Bar - the bar is very inconspicuous from the outside and the inside is very nondescript but the staff were very charming and friendly and we had some lovely hot nibbles and olives to accompany our drink. It's just one of those things you have to do -... More

I´ve never had such a bad Bloody Mary ! Super expensive, small glass, luke-warm, not even sufficient space in glass to stir it up or add an ice-cube. Not even served with a separate dish with Worcestor, tabasco, lemon, salt and peppar, to be able to improve the drink. It was close to a joke. And sky-high prices. Small, hot,... More
