As a vegetarian, I love the Vesna Taverna for lunch. The falafel wrap is amazing. There's a great selection on the menu for me and the fresh squeezed juices are wonderfully refreshing.

We have had breakfast here on a couple different trips to SXM. The food is always delicious and the staff is very very friendly. Sometimes, visiting a tourist destination you meet less than enthusiastic staff, not the case here! The new location, directly across the street from the old one, is inviting and a great place to watch the people... More

We came here for our breakfast last year, by chance since we wanted to visit every restaurant that was in the top ten (not including the night restaurant). We were absolutely stunned, at the quality of food, and came back this summer with a vengeance. For a moment I thought this place got sold, because on it's location was a... More

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
