The owner/hostess is charming and a lot of fun. The food was good but we had to wait almost a half hour to be presented with our check. The owner and the waitress were smoozing with their regular customers and ignoring first time patrons. Had they known that we were here for five weeks, perhaps they would have lavisheds more...

The spring rolls were light and piping hot as was the savory fish soup. My wife had the Creole Shrimp, my brother-in-law had the scallops and shrimp, and I had their incredible Lamb Shank. For dessert we shared the Creme Broule with Choxolate Mousse. We all loved it and will definitely be going back. Say hello to Vesna for us... More

I ordered the grouper with creole sauce which came with two sides, so I chose mashed potatoes and salad. I am not a salad fan, but omg, it was amazing. I have tried mashed potatoes at Tides Restaurant (Mary's Boon) and karacters and I have to say that Vesna's mashed potatoes was way better. The grouper was Cooked to perfection... More

Vesna Taverna! We eat here every year and can only echo our previous five star reviews and those of other 5-starring diners over the years. Vesna (owner) and Melody are a lot of fun and very attentive; we always feel like we've just dined with friends in our own dining room. As for the food, all the positive superlatives apply... More

This was our first time going to Vesna Taverna, but certainly won't be our last. We were a party of 3. After being chided for not making reservations we were seated and told it maybe five minutes before we were waited on. It was more than worth the wait. Two of us had the grouper with spicy creole sauce and... More

First visit at this charming restaurant for dinner (after great breakfast 2 days earlier) and all four of us couldn't have been more pleased. Our server was the delightful owner, Vesna, and food was prepared by her chef husband. We had Greek and Caesar salads, escargot, dinner specials of shrimp, salmon And grouper. Presentation and taste were excellent. Service was... More

Vesna is one of our favorites! Food is incredibly fresh and having dined there several times over the past few visits to St. Maarten, we keep returning. The only suggestion I would have is to have additional wait staff as Vesna is spread thin during the busy holiday season so service tends to be a bit slow...but you are on... More
