Some time during our trip, morning noon or night we have to stop in and enjoy Vensa's. Whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner the food is magnificent and the people are awesome. Yannick and Vesna only put out quality food that is second to none. Sally in the morning is always like a great sunrise, never a bad day.... More

We were here 4 years ago and we had to come back. You will feel welcomed and at home and the food is delicious. I wish I had asked for the recipe for their Creole sauce. I couldn't decide if it was rude or a compliment to ask. Save room for the banana rum punch after dinner.

Best breakfast! Love the salmon bagel and the fresh orange juice! The rum shots are great too! We have been there for dinner as well, but did not go this year! Always fresh! Sally is always hilarious! AND provides great service, along with her entertainment!

Just like alot of the other reviews my family loves Vesna Taverna. From the moment you walk in Sally is there to make sure everything is perfect. The food is absolutely delicious, from breakfast to lunch. Service is top notch and really friendly. Love their home made banana rum, always a good way to end your meal.

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
