Yummy Dover Sole and a dessert trolley!

The menu is extensive and then they have a lot of specials including a wide section of fish. We both went for the Dover Sole which was outstanding. The dishes are served without veg so you have to order them separately. The other high point was a full desert trolley (see photo) which was laden... read more

We went here for my birthday last year with 12 people and the service and food were out standing. We all got served at the same time, the staff are friendly, good fun and pay attention to detail. The food was just delicious

I visited on a Saturday night as a party of 4 for the nan-in-laws 80th birthday and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The service was great from arrival and the waiters were prompt but not overbearing. I cannot fault the service received. As for the food, it's excellent. Each course was a delight particularly the peach and ginger... More

Friendly welcome and a pleasant place, however we found the food to be only mediocre at best. The starter of chicken livers was quite salty and dry, and the sliced mushrooms in it were very chewy suggesting they were dried-mushrooms that hadn't been soaked long enough before cooking. The other starter of Raw slices of beef fillet lacked a dressing... More

Located opposite a car park so access very easy. Warm welcome and excellent service. Nice atmosphere. Extensive menu plus additional specials. The service was better than the food which I would describe as average. But overall an enjoyable experience.

This is an Italian restaurant that has the feel of the 80s about it.....but in a good way. Been here in Marlow for many years, traditional menu but an extensive list of specials (essentially everything cooked any way you would wish), staff who have been here for many years with a passion for their food and an old fashioned desert...

Were taken there for an " anniversary" surprise. We were very well looked after, gooduu food and wine. Well established, small cosy restaurant. Had been there before and not disappointed. Difficult to choose from the extensive menu and "overflowing " dessert trolley. Their own Prosecco was very nice, some of our French party had never heard of it but loved... More

I had not been to the Villa D'este for a while, no particular reason, I have eaten there on several occasions over the years and have always found it first class from the welcome, through the meal to leaving, the selections excellent and varied and a sweet trolley that is out of this World. Staff are wonderful and informative and... More

Haven't been out on New Years Eve for years - circumstances and all that. So took the plunge and came here. Been here for several meals - all excellent and to be honest the "worlds greatest waiter" persuaded me that New Years Eve was always a cracking night. So I booked for 5.
