Old school and top-notch

Villa Marina occupies an attractive site overlooking the Thames. It's the sort of elegant sophisticated old school Italian found in dreams of a bygone era. You know the type.

Have eaten here on many occasions and again the food was excellent. A slightly long wait for our orders to be taken but from then we had excellent service.

Our first time eating here and having read other reviews we were not disappointed. Could not fault it in any way, food, ambience and service excellent. Had a very pleasant evening, staff were very attentive but not over fussy and food was very good. Great if you particularly like seafood but plenty of other options and a really good dessert...

A superb traditional restaurant. The staff were fantastic, the food exceptional and a lovely atmosphere. The restaurant is easy to find just off the main road by the bridge.

Had a lovely dinner at Villa Marina. Proper old style service but with modern dishes. The stuffed squid was fantastic! There was three of us and we really enjoyed every course. Excellent, attentive service. Will be back next time we are in Henley.

Lovely atmosphere! Alas busy...beer go book, although you could get lucky. The menu is Italian and very reasonably priced (especially the set menu,dessert is from a trolly!...haven't seen that for years any where else). Can not recommend this restaurant enough. Good for special occasions and just a Sunday roast.
