Fodor's Expert Review The Marina Restaurant & Bar
Originally the ballroom of a stately home, this high-ceilinged restaurant lives up to its pedigree. Light filters through stained glass, and floor-length cappuccino-color silk drapes grace windows that frame the river; crisp white table linens and sparkling glassware further enhance the interior. On the menu, look for the steamed fresh fish fillet with crushed new potatoes and bell-pepper confit. The dark chocolate mousse cake with praline crunch and cocoa sorbet is a divine dessert choice.
