Very enjoyable Birthday Dinner for our daughter and family

I booked a table for 6 people on a Saturday night. From the time we arrived to when we left the staff couldn't be more attentive, it was a pleasure. All the food was absolutely superb, and as we had some young people with us who always moan that they don't like this and that, they enjoyed the food... read more

Although this is next to the Bridge you don't see the water from the restaurant, but it is nicely decorated inside, and set with white tablecloths. They have a fixed price 3 course meal for a reasonable price with several choices. We had the veal scaloppine and it was excellent. The best place to park is near the train station,... More

Everything was great at our visit to Villa Marina during the Henley Royal Regatta - location is perfect - right in the heart of everything, food was delicious and the service was very warm and attentive. Would go again in a heartbeat next time in Henley.

Quite surprised with the previous reviews. To me this was just another average Italian restaurant. Nothing wrong with the food, just nothing special. Service equally average. Would not return as there are so many great restaurants out there...

We celebrated a friend's impending nuptials here. The staff were attentive and took everything in their stride. Though we were quite a large group they did not insist on us having a set menu or order in advance, even though it was a normal evening in the restaurant with other bookings. The food was delicious, came at the same time... More

A lunch with some good chums as part of our annual pilgrimage to Villa Marina during regatta. As always the food, wine and service were excellent.

Visited here with my fiancé and we had a lovely time. Our waitress was incredibly friendly and we couldn't have asked for better service. The food, wow! It was incredible, simply stunning. I can't wait for my next visit there.

Good service is to be cherished these days and Villa Marina has it in abundance. The waiters know more about the food and wine than you do, so it's best to just relax and let them recommend what's best. The specials are always amazing and the pudding trolley is worth waiting for. Highly recommended, but book in advance!
