Had lunch here today for the first time. I have family in Henley but had never visited. A friend had booked the table. We arrived and were warmly welcomed and seated promptly. The menu wouldn't look out of place in the 1980s but it's good, honest, freshly prepared food. They offered fried calamari as a starter special but we didn't... More

A welcoming service team lead by genuinely attentive manager taking us on a journey of true freshly prepared food and flavours to tickle your taste buds. You can taste the chef enjoys what does. Excellent suggestion of red wine and deserts hard to resist. Will without doubt come back.

My third visit to Villa Marina and by far the best. A family visit to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of a new term at Uni for my boys. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, food all very delicious and beautifully presented. Pudding trolley worth missing out 'starters' for - the Amaretti cake was a dream!... More
