Just about makes average. Staff were pleasant and efficient but the food is not going to make us rush to return. The Stroganoff and chicken dish were never going to set the world alight. Meat quality was just about acceptable and the whole thing fairly bland. The fish cake starter was OK but the calamari was not good- rubbery squid and with a batter lacking any crispness.

Good Sunday carvery with good meat portions and plenty of fresh veg. We also visited one Friday evening with son and daughter in law, although a little quieter, pleasant surroundings and once again no complaint about the food or the service.

I really like this place. My family and myself were down here for Fathers day. There were 10 of us in total with 4 being children. I am never disappointed with any aspect of Marina Vista. The staff work hard for you and the food is excellent. There is a distinct family appeal to the operation here with the manager and manageress also having their lunch with the diners.
Great little restaurant which is always packed (irrespective of it being Fathers day) which can only be a good thing.
