Vesna's is great. We really enjoyed our food. We had the greek special which included a little of everything - hummus, greek salad, kafta, grape leaves, spinach pie! All very tasty! My only complaint was it took forever to get our check - even though we asked for it a few time, I think it took like 30 minutes to... More

There were eight of us for dinner on mussel night ( Friday ). Mussel lovers were happy. The rest of us had pasta or chicken dish. Prices were reasonable. Service was slow. And I really wish we had been given itemized individual bills rather than a total beside each name on a piece of paper.

Outstanding food & service! We had the brie-salad appetizer and it was awesome. For the main course, we had the grouper, mahi mahi, and my son had a chicken pasta dish. Both fish were cooked to perfection & the pasta dish was so tasty. (We have been to other "recommended" restaurants where the fish was just eh at best. Quality... More

We had the Greek dinner and it was just like home. Vesna and I are long lost cousins because we are Macedonian so the food and the atmosphere was just great. The soup was wonderful as well as the main course. The dessert was even better followed by the home made rum. Nice start to our vacation.

We stopped at Vesna's three times on our most recent visit to St Maarten. A lot of the mega-yachts order catering from here. Those yachts have their own private gourmet chefs but they still want food from Vesna! Vesna was super-charming (as always) and Yannick was working his magic in the kitchen - my wife LOVES his curry shrimp. On... More
