I have been to lots of restaurants for sunday lunch with my family, but i must say Villa Marina tops them all. As a family we go to many restaurants and we have found that Villa Marina is by far the best for value, service, quality and price. We find the staff very friendly and helpful and as regular users...

We enjoyed our 34th wedding anniversary meal here last Sunday after a recommendation from a friend. The food was excellent and the service pleasant. It was very busy so obviously a popular place. We will return!

dashed in for quick, late supper on a Sunday evening - a strangely difficult time to find something to eat! The food, when it eventually arrived was delicious. However the service (as on my previous visit about 18 months ago) was pretty appalling - initial interest vanished when we didn't order wine, and it took another 20 minutes to place... More

This place never let's you down. Pepe is a wonderful maître de and always puts you at your ease. Food is excellent both in terms of choice and quality. Quantity will not disappoint either. Prices are reasonable. Wine list is good and extensive, also fairly priced. Highly Recommended.

Having recently eaten at this establishment I would like to congratulate the staff on their quality of service, varied menu and good food. Being a long established resident of Henley(aged 73) I have eaten here on many occasions and been completely satisfied. I would take exception to Charlotte M's derogatory comments both about our local restaurants and people (see her... More

Had a business dinner at villa marina, the service was fantastic and some of the best food I have eaten in a very very long time, found myself wondering how I can get back there this month. Specials were a added bonus I had the lobster linguini and thought I was in food heaven. Only one small niggle is the... More

Attentive and friendly service but the food was so bad we have to send back both the starter and the main course before giving up, and they seemed not to have a clue. A real shame. Possibly a bad night, possibly (having looked around us at the time) filled with relatively unsophisticated diners which would explain the other great reviews.
