“Fantastic Must Try!!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

When we first walked in to the restaurant, we were greeted by a welcoming team and an extraordinarily delicious scent. We were seated immediately and we loved the decor of the place, very well thought and highly pleasing to the eye. I opted for the signature mussels and salmon dish. 
The food was beyond delicious (we all loved the french fries) and the service was impeccable, each staff member being really attentive, and the owner came by to say hello. We thoroughly enjoyed the La Marina Restaurant Bar experience and if we lived in Guangzhou this would be our regular dining spot, and would definitely consider to entertain clients as well. Absolutely phenomenal, the food, the service and unforgettable ambiance, highly recommended!! Well done LA MARINA!

The Experience you had in our restaurant is unique since we are the only mussel bar in Guangzhou serving French mussels.

“I hope they just opened....”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Went for Dinner. Easy to find, nice location. Ordered Mussles for starter and Sole with Potato for main with a very nice and fluent-in-english lady. After 20min I got my main from another waiter. I asked about the starter, unfortunately he didnt speak english. I asked 3x in different ways about my starter, the mussles. Then he said "oh, mussles no have, meyo...". I thought OK, why not and started. The Sole was wonderful. Tender, wih a great Coriander-Garlic Sauce, lovely! 3-4min later another waiter came with my Mussles. I asked if thats a Joke!?! No english. I asked if that wasnt supposed to be the starter, as ordered and stated in the menu. "OK Sir, sorry..." He left. I finished my Fish and had Mussles for Dessert. Also lovely, on the spot, really tasty.
I saw the Manager walking around, talking to guests, asking if everything is OK. He didnt come to my table. The nice waitress from the beginning was sitting at a table chatting with the manager later on. I saw that they were aware of what happened but nobody came to ask, apologize etc. If you hire "low-profile" staff, teach them to speak english and about the "starter-main-dessert" way of eating in such places. OR DO IT YOURSELF!!! Really a shame, such nice food... But like that, they wont survive long since I saw 2 other guests leaving unsatisfied during my 1,5h there.

“Fancy enough”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

It is a generally small restaurant with good food. Its also beautiful by th way. The lamb is great , and the drinks are made by one of the best bar tenders in my experience.
