We went for the view and it was right. All tables are outside. You can enjoy the panorama of the canal. Food was normal, mil feuille best. So it was the salmon tartare

We had a very nice lunch at Grand Canal. The best place in Venice for lunch with spectacular view of Grand Canal. Nice food, good drinks and very good service. Price is expensive but worth it.

Great service and food. A wide variety of menu options. You pay extra to eat outside near the canal but it is well worth it!!

Decided to stop here for croissant and cappuccino while visiting Venice. It's right by the side of the Canal, so excellent for both people and boat watching. There is a gondola stop nearby so that is worth watching as well. For such grandstand seats the...More

At the Grand Canal restaurant based at the Hotel Monaco in the heart of Venice, you may dine on a beautiful terrace just a few inches above the waters of the Grand Canal and feast your eyes as well as your palate. It is drenched with romance. And with breathtaking views over gondolas, the spotlit Santa Maria della Salute, and the island of San Giorgio, the Grand Canal wouldn���t have to offer exquisite d��cor, excellent service and fine food. But it does. The menu is based on the daily-changing fresh fish and vegetables that Venetian cuisine dotes on, as well as a menu of meat and pasta dishes that change seasonally, like salmon and swordfish tartare with lemon and basil or terrine of foie gras with pumpkin puree. If your plans include private entertaining, the Grand Canal restaurant is set in the Hotel Monaco which houses the amazing, historic, perfectly Venetian Sala del Ridotto, the heart of 18th century Venice, where the world���s first Casino was born. Host your wedding, banquet, launch or meeting here, of take advantage of the eight adjacent meeting rooms for smaller groups. The Grand Canal restaurant is a Venetian favourite.
