Beach shabby chic with nice background music....a welcome respite from the Simpson Bay frenzy. We had the specials and they were wonderful....grilled snapper was super fresh and shrimp mofongo was among our best meals on the island. Greek appetizers were average and portions a bit small.....wine pours also seemed small. Warm welcome and nice service. A bit more expensive but... More

Had the American Breakfast. You get a good portion for $11.00. Not the fanciest looking place. You have the traffic of autos on the main road in Simpson Bay Area. We grabbed a quick bite on our way to the airport.

Excellent dinner at Vesna Taverna tonight. Delicious curry shrimp, with 6 large shrimps and creamy curry sauce just right....not over powering curry flavor. Escargot was amazing. But highlight of the evening was the watermelon martini.....the best cocktail I've ever tasted.

Just enjoyed Greek Night at Vesna. Clever platter of mezes make for a delightful tasting menu. They offer a $25 special Greek platter on Saturday nights. Pita with tzatziki, hummas, mousakka, spanakopita, greek salad, chicken kabob, soup, and dolmades. Sure worth the time and money. They also serve awesome breakfasts. Their French breakfast with fresh croissant is exceptional, as is... More

In addition to excellent food and service at Vesna's the pie's that her husband makes are the VERY BEST. The reason we have dinner is to get to the pie.
