I finally got to Vesna Taverna this year. I've heard about it for years but until this year hadn't gone. Vesna Yannick, one of the owners greeted us warmly. My sister and I shared the Burrata appetizer which was delicious. I had the flank steak special which was awesome. My sister had the Carribean pot which she also loved. We... More

We are here one morning for breakfast and can't wait to go back! Had a delicious ham and cheese omelet that was around $8 and it was HUGE! We can't wait to have our family come in to take them to this restaurant, the inside is so adorable and it's such a relaxing atmosphere.

We are in St Maarten for 5 weeks every year and we eat here so many times that people would think we are crazy. The problem is that the breakfasts, lunches, and dinners are so good. For breakfast I always get a fresh made bagel, for lunch we get fresh made hummus (the best in the world), wings and french... More

Had a delicious dinner while vacationing in St Marten. The service and food are both excellent-and the prices are good! Vesna makes you feel at home and her husband, the chef, takes pride in his work. It definitely shows! Just wish we'd found this place the last time we were in St Martin-would go twice if I could.

We had an excellent meal from soup to nuts with terrific service and a great atmosphere. Hard to pick a favorite app but the escargot was amazing, Ceasar salad too. The 4 entres we had were excellent too. Can't remember the exact special but it, the Salmon dish and Pomodoro pasta all still delight my tastebuds!

Not only can you get a burger, steak or fancy fish dish here, you can get french toast or even your bagel! If you are missing your morning bagel while enjoying the sun on the Friendly Isle, just stop by Vesna and let them know what flavor you want and they will have it for you the next morning. We...

The food here leaves your taste buds wanting more. Great customer service and Sally is the best!! The crab cakes are very seasoned and full of flavor. My favorite was the pineapple ribs, the ribs are so tender they fall of the bone. The banana rum was my friends favorite and is a must have. You can can also purchase... More
