Description: Perched on the top floor of the Hotel Danieli, Restaurant Terrazza Danieli is a place where the superb culture of Venetian culinary tradition is brought into a “new” era under the mastery of Executive Chef Alberto Fol. Indigenous ingredients follow the rhythm of the seasons and are marked with flavours that recall the city’s heritage trade routes. The sensory experience culminates in the unsurpassed panoramic views that extend from the restaurant out to the lagoon and its islands. Lunch and dinner are served in the lavish surroundings created by renowned interior designer Jacques Garcia, where vistas of cupolas, the Doge's Palace and the ever-changing lagoon draw the eye, or outdoors on the panoramic rooftop terrace from May to October. Open 7 days.

We had previously visited the Terrazza Danieli for brunch on a gloomy wet day so there was no outdoor seating on that occasion. On our latest visit it was a nice summer day and as many people have commented, one thing about the Terrazza Danieli is the excellent panoramic view from this location.

Although this is a brunch buffet, the menu they provide does seem to want to steer you down rigid routes in some areas. For instance there were a few types of pasta dishes but I like to choose my own accompaniments (within reason); I am eating it, not the chef!

I also felt that the breakfast choices were very limited although perhaps they think that with a 12:30 start, people do not want breakfast.
However, if you liked salad and salad and more salad, there was more than enough choice!

Overall, the food quality was very good but the service was poor given there were so many waiters, seemingly with very little to do. They even take a long time to refill your wine which supposedly is included in the price.

I did expect the brunch to be busier, especially as it was such a nice day and Venice was very busy, but given the price of 120 Euros per head (up from 110 Euros a year back) it was perhaps not too surprising and as a result there seemed to be a lot of food left over.

We visited the restaurant on the last night of our trip to Venice and it really was the best way to end our holiday.

You are treated like royalty from the moment you arrive and made to feel so welcome by the friendly waiters.

The view is spectacular and really did live up to expectations. *Tip* If you definitely want a table right on the edge of the terrace then book and arrive at 7pm as soon as they open - it's worth it.

The food, which is obviously going to be more expensive than most places, was honestly some of the best I've ever eaten, anywhere. The sea bass was amazing.

If you're after a really special evening, then it'll take a lot to beat this place!

On the rooftop of the 5* Hotel Danieli, their terrace restaurant is worth the visit. Even the walk through their beautiful lobby is special.

Best view in Venice of the Grand Canal

We enjoyed a few hours there on our first day. Several Bellinis, lovely snacks and a range of light dishes. A great way to start our vacation.

I booked this restaurant as the culmination of a Birthday trip to Venice for my wife. It was absolutely amazing we entered from the canal and were escorted to the cocktail bar where we had some pre dinner drinks then on to the restaurant.The decor was sumptuous and the views amazing.As you would expect from restaurant of this calibre the food and service were excellent and we will return hopefully very soon.

Fine Venetian dining at its best in every sense. Beautiful food with deep flavor, exceptional service & just a draw dropping view over the lagoon. Make it your splurge lunch or at least a drink and cheese plate after 4.
