Visited here last night with family which included two young nephews, excellent service, outstanding food and a welcoming Staff. The younger element was accounted for and entertained and the whole evening was first class. A great improvement from the previous owners/operators. I certainly recommend.

Visited La Marina on a busy Saturday evening and was greeted by a vibrant European like atmosphere, hope that doesn't sound too 'foodie'. Service was swift, waiters attentive, food good. House Savigion B needs an upgrade. Vfm.

We regularly visit this excellent eatery, not just because it's local, but because of the consistently great food and the fantastic service from Attila and his team. Attila has a great knowledge of all wine so when we fancy trying something different he never fails...More
