“Worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Of course the scenery can't be beat. Heaters and blankets (!) for when it gets chilly. Drinks were great. Food was good. Service awesome!

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We were staying at the hotel so reserved a table one evening. I think it's best to reserve a table if you can. Staff were very friendly & helpful. The view is amazing and its so lovely to sit with a few drinks wrapped in the lovely warm blankets watching the sun go down! I only wish we had time to go back on a second night.

“Awesome spot to end the day!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

The service and space to stretch out and relax was fantastic. The view from atop can't be beat..sunsets and blankets and patio heaters were a perfect way to enjoy and end the evening.

“Drinks with a fabulous view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This bar is worth it for the views alone, but the drinks are amazing as well. The food is decent, but a little pricy, but it's a great place to cozy up with blankets and heaters on a cool night. You get priority if you're a hotel guest, so you might need a reservation to get a seat if not. It's a great place to unwind and still feel like you're part of the excitement of Venice!
