Another great meal at the Villa D'Este. This one was booked for family to celebrate a big birthday. We find this restaurant consistently good whatever the occasion. There is an extensive two course lunch menu which is such good value and who could possibly resist the amazing sweet trolley!

What a night it was! We had arrived in Marlow the night before going to Tom kerridges"Hand & Flower" for Sunday lunch, so I found Villa D'Este on Trip Advisor, gave them a call and booked a table. For starters it was "Scamorza Alla Valdostana" which is grilled smoked mozzarella with beef tomatoes and radicchio drizzled with olive oil &... More

The food is pretty reasonable (especially the daily specials) but the service intrusive and inattentive in equal measure. Our conversation was repeatedly interrupted by serving staff with no courtesy who also seemed incapable of understanding/providing simple drinks orders. There's a cold draft through the restaurant; sit well away from the line of the door to kitchen.
