Dining

Restaurant
The restaurant, discovering unique and creative fish and vegetable dishes, as well as meat and legumes, offers Venetian traditional specialities every day, with a penchant for sea food though with solid roots in the mainland. Desserts are only home-made - simple and genuine. Here are some dishes which have contributed to the Starhotels Splendid Venice restaurant's renown: Triptych of raw fish; tuna tartare (yellow fin quality), knife-cut with chives and local raw shrimps and sword fish carpaccio.Shrimps "in saor" : an old Venetian recipe, reinterpreted by the chef; shrimps are peeled and dipped in flour, then fried. They are then left in oil and boiled onion for 24 hours.The wine list is very good. The setting and atmosphere are unique; in fact, the restaurant is located in the campiello, the heart of typical Venetian buildings.

Everything

Having spent a lot of time in 5 Star Hotels, we were more than impressed with this hotel and quite surprised at only having a 4 star rating. The location is perfect and everything about the hotel lived up to the narrative advertised. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in a 4 or 5 star hotel in the centre of the tourist area of venice.

Perfect 16th birthday for grandaughter..

We really had a hard time finding the hotel. The staff was very patient on the phone redirecting us at every call after wrong turns. The location couldn't have been better for "newbies" being able to locate everything we wanted to see. My granddaughter LOVED the breakfast! I loved the spotless bathroom the bed was very comfortable. We'd stay here again.
