    Amazing deserts. Great music. Just don’t leave your food unattended ...the hot chocolate is to die for. And the scenery vivid. PS there is a surcharge for the musicians. Not a complaint just giving heads up. They deserve every euro. Just amazing .

    Best service, best coffee. A must visit if your budget allows it. When in Singapore you have a Singapore Sling at the Raffles hotel. In Venice? Coffee and something sweet at the Florian on Piazza San Marco. Tje live music makes it extra special. There are 2 more places with live music, but this is the Florian!

    I try to visit places known for hot chocolate in every city I visit, and honestly this was one of the most disappointing I've ever visited. First up to know is that you pay €6 per person as part of your order for the live music (even if that live music stops the minute you walk inside). We got a hot chocolate with cream and an ice cream with hot chocolate on top, total bill came to just over €40. I have no problem paying that much money for an exceptional experience, but this wasn't that. The hot chocolate with cream was a glass filled 50% with whipped cream, so after you mixed it in it was warm at best. The ice cream was mediocre when compared to the fresh ice cream you can get in a gelateria nearby. Overall it feels like you're paying through the nose purely for the experience of visiting this cafe, and in no way for the quality of that experience.

    No matter how expensive this place is. It was my most memorable experience for me! Food is ok, service was great! Plus the quintet are awesome. I will definitely go back to Venice because of them! ❤️

    If you want a cheap cup of coffee, do not come here. If you want a fantastic experience with good coffee, good food and an exquisite atmosphere with a quartet playing in the background, then this is for you. Yes you pay €6 per adult for the orchestra but you are informed of this as soon as you sit down. You even get a "menu" of the music they are playing with the cost laid out as well. The menu is on the internet to view before you go so there is no need for anyone to be shocked at the prices. If you do not want to pay, do not go. We had 2 frozen coffees, a tea and a plate of macarons and a selection of Venetian biscuits. Cost €72 but well worth the experience, especially with the orchestra playing in the background. The staff were not rude and we were not hurried in any way.

    I have been here both in day and night. Enjoy the music and view. Originally I am not really into the view at San Mark’s in the daytime because it is really crowded and hot. Then I feel it’s great because of the music, nice coffee and dessert here. Expensive but worth it. And the price is fair for the musician who deliver the nice music.

    Taking advantage of tourists since the 1700s. We had two cocktails, which they served with a few potato chips and olives. Our table was indoors away from the windows, but the windows were open. As a result, they tacked on a 6 euro/per person “music charge” for the band playing music outdoors. The total bill was about 52 euro. Highway robbery. I got a Bellini as I was told Caffe Florian was the birthplace for them. Knowing the history and the stories of the place set it up for failure I guess, because I really expected so much more. If you want to see this place for the history, by all means walk by; take a look inside; listen to the band outdoors while you do. If you are hungry or thirsty, save you money and go to literally anywhere else. I gave 2 stars instead of 1 because it’s not as if the drink prices weren’t listed on the menu. That said, they were small drinks, the chips and olives were a pathetic excuse for snacks compared to what’s offer with drinks at venues that are a quarter of the price, and the service wasn’t even good.

    We had a really great time here! The music was great and so was the service and the drinks! It was so nice chilling out at night on San Marco plaza and just relax here with the music! We ordered wine, Darjeeling tea and fruit tea(apple cinnamon) and ice coco! It was perfect

    €37.50 for two hot drinks. Loved it though. You pay for the location and service, as well as not being surrounded by mass crowds. It is what it is. We aren’t wealthy people but would recommend this experience to those visiting Venice. The music was lovely, the drinks great and the service fantastic. What more could you ask for!
