I met my cousins Anne (from Scotland) on Monday for 5 days of fun.

The Grand Canal

We had dinner reservations at The Riviera Restaurant which was highly recommended to us by a client of mine. The owner was an very interesting and quirky man who’s face lit up when he described the dishes we were going to taste. We decided on a 7 course fish tasting menu – which turned out to be 9 courses.

Best Rice cracker ever!

A variety of lightly marinated raw fish – delicious

Deconstructed fish – the tail was olives, the eye was tomato and the scales were actually deep fried fish scales.

Crab on peanuts

The best fish soup – served as a foam

Eel risotto

The squash flower who ate a fish – with spring onion – and i ate it all!

Raspberry gelato with chocolate dirt

Marscapone cream with other amazing goodies

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 1/2 hour dinner and were the last guests to leave. It was now midnight. We walked to our boat-bus stop to discover that the station was closed for the night. It took us approximately an hour to find our hotel room – and we discovered how beautiful and quiet Venice is at night.

We booked a taxi tour of the quieter side of Venice. It was beautiful.

Venice is beautiful at night when all the lights are reflecting on the canals.

An end to a beautiful day
