Saturday night dinner for two with starters and mains from the menu was delicious with good quality fresh ingredients. I recommend the mussels and salads. Great table by the window with view of the quay and river. Added benefit of some live music. Great service.

Always nice to sit and enjoy a beer and a pizza here. Sometimes they have offers on pasta too. I usually order a pizza its thin base and always seems home made.

My friends and I took a wonder down to this place, staff seemed friendly. We had a shisha pipe to smoke as well which was quite nice. All in all a good bar.

Went there to eat breakfast and it was nice. The best thing is location and you can sit outside. The food took long to come but it was good at the end. Will recommend it.

Filled with Venetian romance and Mediterranean spirit, Bar Venezia sits on the tranquil quayside, next to the River Exe. The extensive menu not only offers Italian classics, but also Portuguese, Spanish, French and Greek delicacies, which are perfect to enjoy with river views on the ample al fresco seating. The Mediterranean buzz kicks up a gear with the regular dance classes and club nights, making it a true slice of the continent.
