We were attracted to this restaurant because of the variety of dishes( fish,chicken, steak and pasta) but will definitely return because of the delicious preparation of all the dishes. The three entrees we had were all delicious. The salmon special was cooked just as ordered with a blue cheese sauce that was creamy and a nice touch. It was served... More

Have been going here for years. Actually a lot more at the old location for quick sandwiches. We decided to stop in for lunch. I wasn't really craving anything on the menu so went with the chicken parm. It was excellent. Enough said! He had the fish & loved it. Reasonable portions prices & quick service if on lunch break....

We have been coming to this island for many years and both my husband and I have been sick and slept the day away not really feeling hungry but knowing that we should eat something. We both wanted something lite and some soup so we took a chance on this restaurant after only eating on the French side. Call us... More

Believe all the great reviews, we had the best meal and service at Vesna's. They are super friendly and funny and make you feel right at home. The escargot was the best I've ever had. We also had a ribeye and shrimp Alfredo, both outstanding.

Went to Vesna's for a quiet date night dinner without the kids. Nice and inviting place. We received very relaxed and courteous service as soon as we sat down. We had a seafood pasta that was loaded with fresh and properly prepared scallops, shrimp, calamari, and mussels. It was very good. We also had simply the best pomodoro I have... More

A diverse menu with strangely few Greek choices ( perhaps as we were there for lunch it is a different menu). Friendly staff, owner is very personable. We had a nice French Rose, Greek appetizers and salads for the adults and burgers for the girls. Recommended for Breakfast or lunch - next trip we will go for dinner.

Per recommendations of friends, we visited on a Saturday, known "Greek night" at Vesna Taverna. Service is impeccable and you truly do feel like you're a visiting family member. Since I ordered the Greek plate my husband ordered the grouper with a creamy garlic sauce. Without a doubt, this was the best-prepared grouper either of us had ever had. Melt... More

When we first entered the restaurant, we were greeted with many warn smiles and so much attention that it felt just like visiting family. The menu is very fun with a French side and a Greek side. I had ordered the veal shank, which was good, but after eating the moussaka as an appetizer, I wished I had ordered the... More
