The mussels on Friday were fantastic. The rib steak and salmon were specials and excellent. One of the best restaurants on the island. The prices are very reasonable. I suggest reservations. You will not be disappointed.

They make great drinks, if you tell them what you like they whip it up for you, even making drinks up to surprise you! The food is good and they have international/mediterranean food. We usually...

We have little kids so are a bit limited by where we can go and relax. Vesna is a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The food was great, the service was fast, and the price was reasonable. We will be back!

Vesna and her husband Yannick provide excellent food and service for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Fish, steak, pastas or desserts all fit the bill and treat the palate.
