One of the best eateries in Henley. Always busy (a good sign), usually quite boisterous and lively, it the the default restaurant in the area for many who regularly eat out. The service is friendly and quick, and the menu varied and tasty. Unlike the majority of restaurants it has managed a consistency of quality that is one of the... More

We have been going to Vlla Marina for many years and have always enjoyed the occasion, but since the new head waiter has been there I'm afraid the occasion is not so pleasant. Apart from him the staff are all very freindly but sadly he is rather rude and very indifferent. We won't be going back.

Decent enough food with a nice emphasis of seafood across the menu. Tortellini for starter was very nice and the desert trolley was excellent. All let down by a rather indifferent, disinterested and slightly rude head waiter. Most of the other staff were very nice mind.

Just enjoyed a superb three course lunch - king prawns, sirloin, trifle with oranges - all for £18. Wine is more expensive but a half bottle of very enjoyable red was £12. Excellent atmosphere and first class service. Evening menu does look much more expensive.

Good Italian, but average service, and clientele who were very rude, made this lunch not the best experience for us visiting Henley-on-Thames from London.

During our river cruise we moored in Henley and made a pilgrimage to Villa Marina, It must have been our 8th visit the over the years. Service and ambience as good as ever. Food brilliant and a sweet trolley to die for - WOW. Almost worth going for just puddings!!! All at a reasonable price too.
