Excellent selections to choose from. Great Greek food and amazing staff. The Mahi Mahi with creole sauce was fantastic.

I was recommended to go to this restaurant for their steaks. The food didn't took long to arrive at our table.The steak I ordered wasn't cooked at the correct term, had to send it back to be cooked a bit more since it was too raw for me. The mushroom sauce was also cold so I had to return that... More

We had breakfast here on our final morning. Service was very good. Food was good, especially their breakfast potatoes and the whole grain croissant served with the "French Breakfast." The real downside here was an odor that can only be described as "sewage." That was a definite turn-off while you are trying to eat. I don't know that we will... More

Vesna is a great place for breakfast and lunch for the typical eggs, bagels, sandwiches, burgers, but when it gets busy the service is friendly but goes at a snails pace. as long as you aren't in a real hurry, I highly recommend the place.

My fiance and I were very lucky to stumble upon this restaurant because we were actually looking for a different one. Vensa is a dynamic character seemingly born to host. Her staff are informative and foodies to be trusted. Her husband is the French Chief that make the most delectable meals! We ate there for dinner and lunch.

We stopped in for lunch and I had the best falafel in the best wrap, ever. The superb service was topped off by a complimentary shot of homemade banana rum, which we liked so much we bought a bottle. Tonight we went back for dinner and again were extremely impressed. Mahi grilled to perfection, exquisite vegetables, tasty mussels, and superb... More

I ate here with my brother and dad during the off-season. My dad had just been on the island a month earlier when he discovered the place and liked it so much that he brought my brother and I. I got some grilled fish dish and it was excellent; my brother got some fried fish dish which I actually liked... More
