We spent a week in Port-of-Spain, eating a variety of local, regional, and international cuisine. I can honestly say that Veni Mange was the best combination of classy restaurant serving native cuisine. The servers were extremely helpful with picking just the right amount of heat....More

What a fantastic restaurant this is. With the feeling of being on an upper terrace, it is a real pleasure to have ceiling fans rather than aircon. The setting, service and food were all great. Fantastic callaloo soup and I really enjoyed the stewed beef,...More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Veni Mange. Our meals of snapper and shrimp were both delicious. The environment is full of Trinidadian art and the waitstaff friendly and attentive, The only problem is its limited openings: Monday-Friday lunch and Wednesday and Friday dinner

Happy you enjoyed your Veni Mangé experience. Yes, the limited opening hours are a bit of a problem, so we are looking into that aspect of the business. Who knows?....on your next trip we may just have added an additional opening evening! lol:)
