Restaurants & Bar
Restaurant Terrazza Danieli
Essential to the Danieli experience is its Restaurant Terrazza Danieli and cuisine concept, a magical voyage for the senses which retraces the oriental influences of spice traders and blends them with ingredients from the lagoon.
Whether enjoying a sun-drenched lunch on the outdoor terrace or a candle-lit dinner in the sumptuous indoor dining room, the award-winning Restaurant Terrazza Danieli never fails to delight. Boasting the most spectacular views of the “Serenissima”—a magnificent panorama of the Venice Lagoon, the famed Island of San Giorgio, and the tributary of the Grand Canal as it flows into Saint Mark’s basin—the restaurant transports guests back to the heydey of Venice’s influential position as Europe’s crossroads between East and West.
The exceptional wine list offers a wide selection of vintages from around the world, with an emphasis on Italian wineries. Special tastings with local vintners are de rigueur—affording guests a rare taste of Italian terroirs.
The outdoor patio—open in early May until late October—serves patrons breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a charming al fresco setting. Wrought iron chairs with ivory white cushions create a lovely backdrop for the watery spectacle of the lagoon. The whole terrace is transformed at sunset—bathed in the pink light of the changing sky. At night, guests can see the twinkle of stars reflected in the lagoon’s ink-blue surface.
