We went to La Marina because had read about it on tripadvisor.
The entrance is nice lined with Champagne bottles. The interior decoration - WOW! They have spent a lot of money on the interior. The bar is huge and very nice.
You order the food off ipads. The waiters and the manager speak English - in most of the restaurants in SIP they speak in English but in Suzhou City none do, so it was a nice change.
The location of the restaurant is in a nice location with a lot place for parking. There was a wedding dinner so half of the restaurant was busy with the function but we did not hear any of the usual loud music which was great!
The food was nice - the club sandwich is the best we have eaten anywhere, the grilled salmon was cooked in butter - very good, the fried rice was nice too. The dessert - banana split was nice but on top they put cherry tomatoes. It was not a good combination but other than that the food was Excellent!
The washrooms are very nice with an LCD TV. Though there exists the bad smell in the washroom area. But I guess that it is every where in china because they do not install traps. The other thing I did not find right was the amount of light as the sinks. But overall ok. They even had a tub in one of the washrooms.
One thing I must say about Tony the manager of the restaurant - he was running around and working with the waitresses bringing food to the tables being a leader and not a boss. Way to go - Good leadership quality.
