This is a restaurant in Henley that has stood out for some time, and continues to do so. There is a wide variety of dishes on the menu however it is always a good idea to listen to the list of specials available.

We held a family gathering at Villa Marina for a mid week lunch. The setting was comfortable and relaxed and the service was both attentive and helpful with our waiter able to offer clear explanations of the ingredients, make menu and wine suggestions and even alternatives to suit our needs. He also explained that if we liked our meals in... More

We have tried many restaurants in Henley and this is definitely one of the best. The restaurant opens at 7pm which is when we booked our table for. We arrived 5 minutes late and the restaurant was already buzzing. Lots of waiters and waitresses meant that you never had to wait for anything. You only had to look up and... More

I have to say that Villa Marina was a disappointment. Not the worst experience I have ever had, but far from the best. I cannot reconcile the reviews on this site to the reality that I experienced. Firstly, upon arrival we saw that the restaurant was extremely full. Tables were packed very densely. There seemed to be a lot of... More

Following a recent family funeral , I took a large party for dinner on monday evening . We were in subdued mood when we arrived but were shown to a lovely table overlooking the river and were made most welcome . The service throughout the evening was excellent and the food and wines were first class and reasonably priced. The... More

We've been eating at Villa Marina for over 5 years and the food just gets better and better. Every time I visit I am always warmly greeted. The lunchtime set menu is great value for money and the specials are constantly changing. My favourite is the whole baby chicken. Wonderful! Every time I visit, the restaurant is full and has...

We have been going here for 20+ years and it still maintains its standard as a good reliable Italian restaurant. I like the Vitello Nodino (which is never on the menu but always available - great veal T bone). The "patron" is helpful, friendly and polite and the staff attentive without being in your face. When our grown up children... More

Special occasion catch up with 2 friends and we had a fantastic night. Was it the best meal ever - no - but it was above average and topped off with a fantastic red wine and great service. I had the lamb shoulder which I would happily order again. The staff were helpful and recommended the wine.
