I had heard of the Florian before. 20 years ago on my first visit to Venice, the Caffe was full every time we walked past, so unfortunately it was not to be. My second visit to Venice May 2014.......again every time I wanted to try to get a table it wasn't to be......my husband didn't mind, I don't think he... More

€82 for two hot chocolates, a gin martini and a G&T; included €6 cover charge each but still!! However, the setting is fabulous and our waiter was splendid. Huge performance of making the martini at the table, and very relaxed service as we loitered through our drinks at 10pm! Orchestra was amusing - particularly the 'evergreen' tunes; certainly designed for... More

As Europe's first coffee house and being in the prime spot in Piazzo San Marco you know the prices are going to be high! The staff don't bother you. They give you the menu and leave you a moment so you can just get up - you don't have to pay their prices... The coffee was very good, the live... More

I had read about Caffe Florian several times and seen it on TV so I had to go when we visited Venice recently. We went for desserts and drinks in the evening and this was one of the most perfect moments we had in Venice. We ate delicious desserts, had a wonderful glass of Prosecco and great cup of coffee...

Historic Cafe Florian on Piazza San Marco - we opted for this instead of a Gondola ride, and glad that we did. Yes, it's expensive as you also pay for the music (6 euros per adult) so our two espressos, a coke and a plate of 5 macaroons cost 48 euros. However, well worth it. We sat indoors in the... More

Reading some of the other reviews... Yes Florian's is not cheap. There is pretty much a 3-4 piece orchestra playing music for you while you sit in the largest square and people watch, in Venice. I think we had two drinks and it was around $30 (which includes a fee for the band). There are other places to get more... More
