Came here having driven most of the day and was fairly hungry. Looked nice enough from the outside and the young waitress was friendly enough. Ordered the 'BLT with Mayo' as I thought it would be fairly decent for £6 and it's pretty hard to stuff up. When my 'meal' arrived it was fairly apparent I had over-estimated the muppet... More

I should start by saying we have been here a couple of times before and the food is good but made the mistake of returning on a Saturday at lunch time. The Cafe was busy but there were empty tables that had not been cleared. After standing at a dirty table for five minutes, and then asking one of the... More

The girls were all busy as you entered the cafe,one of the girls told you she would clear a table for you after she had finished serving drinks to another table. You then immediately approached the counter where you were rude to another member of staff. I was made aware of the situation right away as I was in the... More

On a beautiful sunny September day, we decided to travel down to Troon. The day was enhanced by our visit to The Venice, where we had an excellent lunch. I had the pesto penne and chicken, while my husband had macaroni cheese with chicken, both meals had salad and garlic bread as standard. Absolutely delicious!! My husband finished with an... More

Had a nice lunch in here. Lovely food and friendly service. Would happily return. . Only fault is that there are too many tables for the size of restaurant.

We recently had a day out in Troon, Ayrshire and found The Venice Café. Been there a few times in the past when they had the restaurant upstairs also. Though the surroundings and furnishings that they have now on the ground floor are not as plush, the food and service is still as good, as is the Illy coffee. We... More

It's a shame the upstairs restaurant closed - this was one of the best places in town to eat. Small, friendly with a fantastic menu always expertly prepared. A real loss to the town. Not so keen on the cafe downstairs but the home baking is good to take away.

Went in for a coffee and some lunch as I liked the look of the place, looks like a proper cafe but also nice enough to take the family there. Food was of a high standard and the service was friendly, would highly recommend for a bite to eat.

I like to go to this cafe when I'm in Troon because the coffee (they use Illy) and ice cream are excellent. The other food is fair value but nothing special. The last time we were in we had scones which were nice but let down by cheap, gummy jam. However the girls who work here are always pleasant and... More
