We came over from the Cape to celebrate an anniversary. This restaurant exceeded expectations. My paella was perfection. My partner had the short ribs and he loved them. We will be back here again for sure

We've eaten here almost every year for the last 10 years while vacationing on the Vineyard. It tends to be a little bit noisy in high season but the food is consistently good and we didn't have to wait too long for a table.

Chescas is an island staple. The food is good big space for large groups and family friendly. However, it is a bit tired. So many of the local restaurants serve locally sourced food and have some updated items on their menus. Chescas has not changed...More
