There was a corner table where i and my one year old daughter could set up camp and explore the delights of sitting in a new place and sharing a plate full of food. Thank you for a wonderful calm experience, a wonderful brunch and outing for mama and daughter.

Wonderful restaurant from the time you walk in the door till you finish a delicious meal freshly prepared, beautiful plate presentation and impeccable service by Sally. Sally knows how to make you feel at home and her attention to detail and menu knowledge, WOW! Lunch is our favorite, try the fresh Mahi or spinach pita or a hot Stew.

The food here was very good and we really liked the service we received -- but we were the only ones in the dining room. Not sure why they have located their kitchen on the lagoon side, leaving the diners with a view of the road. The homemade rum served complimentary at the end of the meal was very nice.

Great menu, great staff, good drinks! Try the cocktails and their homemade banana rum. For breakfast they have amazing bagels, also I recommend the homemade yoghurt with fruit and granola! That bowl will fill you up with deliciousness For lunch and dinner make sure to order something from their specials, but leave some room for desserts! Best one's on the... More

My fiancé and I have tried just about every restaurant on the Dutch side, & Vesna Taverna is by far the best! Take it from us we're quite the foodies. Warm and friendly service accompanied by delicious food makes for a wonderful evening. My fiancé had the steak which was mouth watering. I had the cassolete de st. Jacques with... More

My girlfriend and I visited St Maarten for the first time and were lucky enough to find this gem! From the atmosphere to the food to the service, EVERYTHING was great! The waitress we had treated us like family from the moment we walked in; she was extremely warm and welcoming, explained the menu, their specials, giving us her recommendations... More

I'm not really a review writer but after consistently getting great service from warm and loving island people year after year I feel like I have to. The food is AMAZING, they get it right every single time! Please don't waste the meal with a soda, their fresh smoothies and juices are always extremely delicous as well. Very flexible staff...

I am beyond excited to give a glowing review of this lovely restaurant. It was by mere chance that my group literally stumbled upon this place. We were led very much astray earlier in the evening to another place that turned out to be a true misrepresentation. But instead of focusing on that I want to concentrate on this wonderful... More

We had walked by several times, and never thought to stop in. Decided to give it a try for dinner. The ladies who served us put their heart into this place. I felt like I was having a family dinner. Our food was great, and we left knowing we would be back.
