We stumbled upon this restaurant whilst exploring the sites of Venice. We popped in on the of chance of getting a table. As it was valentines night we didn’t expect to be lucky. But thankfully we only had a 15 minute wait, so we headed off to the bar with our buzzer.
The meal it self was lovely we had salmon and mash with the sharing brownie sundae for pudding. The food was amazing. Considering how busy they were the meal was a relaxing and enjoyable experience enabling us to share a bottle of wine whilst watching the world go by outside. No this wasn’t the cheapest meal we had in Venice but it really was only a few euros more than other restaurants we dined in. Thanks fir the great meal.

This is just what we were looking for after several days of enjoying Italian food. Reasonable prices, not an easy thing in Venice, nice food and no surprises. Very good service.

We stopped here for a cocktail, which were pretty good. Was very very busy! Although we were shocked that two cocktails came up to €33..... BUT you get to have your own hurricane cocktail glass at the end (which you go into the souvenir shop with your receipt to claim your glass!!!

Hi Becca E,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with us!

As I've recently explained another loyal customer, you can always order a drink without the souvenir glass, which will cost you half what you've paid...but you would not taking a must needed collectible from your visit in our cafe!

Looking forward to seeing you soon again in HRC Venice,

Thought we'd stop by for a cocktail and see what the fuss is about. Astonished at a cocktail almost €17 each...however you do get to take the receipt to the shop and claim a cool Hard Rock Cafe Venice cocktail glass which made the price a lot more bearable.

Hi Jabba(dabbadoo??) T,

Thank you for sharing your opinion with us!

The fuss is all about great music, top notch service, food and cocktails! You can also opt for the cocktail without the souvenir glass, this way the price it gets dramatically reduced to barely 10 to 11 bucks, a bargain if you ask me when it comes to having a drink built with premium brands almost at Piazza San Marco.

For instance, you can order a 20 cl Bellini at Harry's Bar for "only" 18 euros.. and I don't think you can take the glass home..unless you steal it from them :)

See you soon,

We usually look out for hard rock cafes when visiting new cities so this trip was to tick a new one off the list. Location was good, not far from San Marco square area and found it easily enough. As expected menu prices were fairly high. Everyone in our group ended up with a burger choosing to upgrade our fries. Next time I wouldn’t bother, I actually think you got more if you stuck with standard. Also be careful when order is taken, waitress asked if I wanted avocado with mine and another in the group was offered cheese slice which we both accepted not expecting an extra €5 on the bill. Overall I would say go, if you want to tick it off the list, but value for money poor compared to other places. Paid €57 for meal for 4 in Mestre while the same here cost $95.

Hi xclyrox,

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us!

First of all, being 1 min walking distance from one of the most iconic places on earth, it may be an added value if you compare it to having a meal at Piazza Ferretto in Mestre! We take pride on the value we offer to our customers and I'm sure that if you put together the professionalism and charisma of our servers, the unique atmosphere, the location and the quality of our food, you will end up believing that you got yourself a great deal.

We also understand that everyone is entitled to an opinion and we gracefully embrace yours with its proper weight!

Looking forward to seeing you soon again,
Pablo Castrogiovanni
