Gorgeous birthday supper

I had a fabulous birthday meal at Villa Marina. As always the staff were fantastic and the food wonderful. A great atmosphere- undoubtedly my favourite restaurant in Henley.

We had a great meal here - the staff are fabulous - professional, bustling, but friendly and fun. The food was very good - perhaps too good because we couldn't really do justice to the desert trolley and it is well worth saving some room for. The restaurant was fully booked the evening we were there so it was pretty... More

I dined at Villa Marina on a Friday night with friends after hearing lots of good things. I wasn't disappointed! The service was great and the food was lovely. The menu is Italian but doesn't have a lot of pasta dishes, and no pizza. Instead they serve more upmarket Italian food like veal, pork in Parma ham, lobster etc with... More

The Villa Marina ranks second, only to Shaun Dickens amongst the many good eateries in Henley. Smartly presented, friendly, professional service. This is a relatively traditional Italian restaurant and none-the-worse for that. Consistent well sourced meat, fish and vegetable all cooked to perfection. I have never been disappointed here.Fish is particularly good but you are unlikely to be disappointed whatever... More

My favourite restaurant in the world did it again. Food, Service, Hospitality and ambience at its best. Nando is the main host and personality supported by a wonderful team. The menu has between 10 starters and 10 mains to choose from but because the daily specials are so good always around 4 starters and 4 Mains. I always have the... More

A beautiful restaurant in a nice location with a real nice ambiance. We arrived early than our booking and the staff were able to accommodate us. The service throughout was of a high standard with attentive and very polite staff. The food however was a real let down. The menu felt dated with very few pasta dishes and the quality... More

Contrary to the usual these English friends of mine took me here. I had warned them I speak Italian (and have a mission to correct menus), as well as being an accomplished cook of all things Italian. The only typo on the menu was in the English version of a dish, and the food was very happily authentic. Turns out... More

What a fantastic restaurant with attentive and gracious staff, lovely food and a fabulous atmosphere...it puts other restaurants in Henley-on-Thames to shame. The service at Villa Marina has been first class every time we've visited; staff are professional, courteous and impeccable in their manner. I suffer from certain dietary allergies and the staff were able to explain what dishes I... More

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening. We were warmly welcomed into the restaurant by the manager and his staff. They were very attentive and provided a good service throughout the meal. This is a beautifully designed restaurant with mirrored walls to give the impression of spaciousness and it works well. The menu had a good variety of dishes... More
