Great Atmosphere, recommend!!

The atmosphere is really cool - extremely 'Caribbean' feeling and a nice small bar to have a drink before or after. Food is a nice mix of seafood, meat prepared with a very 'homemade' feel. Mix of seafood (good selection of different fish, shrimp) as well as some meats. Don't expect overly... read more

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Veni Mange. Our meals of snapper and shrimp were both delicious. The environment is full of Trinidadian art and the waitstaff friendly and attentive, The only problem is its limited openings: Monday-Friday lunch and Wednesday and Friday dinner

This restaurant was founded by Allyson Hennessy and her sister,Rose Hezekiah. It starts from the greeting at the door when you feel like an old family friend. Many lunches taste like homemade; stew chicken,plantains fried to bring out their sweetness, my mouth waters and food is seasonal...so freshness is guaranteed. Allyson may have left us, but Rose has maintained the... More

Taken there by my great friend, a local. Everything you ever wanted from the excellent food personally and creatively spiced and sauced, the eclectic interior, every table and chair a different rainbow, no different to the clothing of the owner and her assistants making sure your plate is full (maybe you should try a little this?) and your drinks attended...

Found this place online and it was a real treasure. Tasty local dishes served by very friendly and attentive staff. Only open Wednesday and Friday evenings and reservations are advised to be sure of getting in.

Veni Mange stands out in Port of Spain. Lovely open dining with the warm breeze to keep you company instead of freezing air conditioning. The décor invites conversation, tables all painted different colour, local and Caribbean art on the walls (all for sale) and then the menu choices... excellent local food cooked to the highest standard with something for everyone...

Veni Mange is a wondrous and unpretentious place to spend and evening and enjoy a great meal. This is a must stop for all visitors to T&T as Veni is a true representation of the people and pallet of Trinidad and Tobago. Firstly the welcome by Roses is warm and inviting and the food with its focus on taste (... More

Through a bunch of online research, I came accross Veni Mange. I sent an email requesting a reservation and Rosemary responded to me within 24hours. The restaurant... More

Three of us UK visitors enjoyed the tasty local food, friendly welcome from Roses and her staff, fun atmosphere, interesting decoration and best wine we had in T&T. It wasn't too expensive either. By the time we left the place was full with a buzz of chat. Will go again
