Fantastic food beautifully cooked and presented. Recommend having lobster! Breakfasts equally wonderful. Diets no use at this Hotel!

I wondered why the River Restaurant at the Dart Marina Hotel did not feature in the better restaurants rated on Trip Advisor as the last time my wife and I ate here we had a great evening - good food and friendly and efficient service. Having now endured one of our worst evenings in a Restaurant, I know why! Firstly,... More

Four of us ate here on a Saturday night. While we all enjoyed our food in terms of taste, presentation and ingredients, we were less than impressed with the service. On arriving at the hotel you’re left to drift through the building with no clear indication of where the restaurant is, and on finding the right place a few staff... More

Firstly, may I say that I found the concierge at this hotel to be one of the best I've ever encountered - he clearly took pride in his work and was an absolute delight. A credit to the hotel! My friend and I had lunch at this hotel - not the first time, but the first since it's re-furb. Service... More

We dined here last week,it was absolutely awful! It has really gone down hill from last year. I had Bruchetta with tomatoes and mozzerella cheese, terrible, tasted like a cold piece of toast with stone cold chopped tomatoes and a layer of solid mozzerella! i only had two mouthfuls and then complained. They took the price of the starter off... More

Ate here for lunch today, we've been staying in one of the Dart Marina apartments. I had the fish and chips, my companion the salmon. For dessert, the blackcurrant pannacotta. All excellent, the chips especially. Around £55 for two courses and drinks. Despite the lukewarm TA reviews, I would recommend. Lovely setting, friendly staff, one of whom escorted me to... More

We ate in the restaurant on the first night of a 3 night stay. We both had the crab and asparagus starter which was totally bland. The menu was very limied so we followed with a fillet steak each, thinking it was a safe choice, even if it was an £8 supplement each. I asked for rare but it was... More

We have stayed and dined at the Dart Marina for many years in all its incarnations! We are now lucky enough to live close by and chose to have Sunday Lunch their with friends in the re-vamped restaurant. Whilst the restaurant manager was warm and welcoming, other staff were mostly cheerless. The location of the restaurant and view is lovely... More

Having seen the reviews on Trip Advisor I thought I might be slightly disappointed but it was the only menu (on a sunday) that really interested me. The menu, portions and price I found a bit pretentious. The pretentious would have turned to fine dining if the flavours were there but unfortunately they weren't. The starters and mains lacked flavour,... More
