Like their moto says, this is a restaurant where you really feel like family. It is a nice cozy place, where the food is very fresh, the meats are excellent and the staff is very friendly. Every time I go there I ask for the combo platter, which is a very large portion of schnitzel, sausages and other meats, potatoes... More

Veslo is not a fancy place, but the food is mouth-wateringly sensational with the best schnitzel in the region, and remarkable Balkan grilled specialties. Wine and beer are somewhat limited, but more than adequate for your needs if you're not too fancy. Owner Alex is delightful and friendly while his aunt and family prepare all the delicacies in the kitchen.... More

This is a place for anyone who enjoys meat/bbq food. I am Macedonian, so i can definitely vouch for the authenticity of Veslo and its balkan food. Delicious schnitzel, yummy kebapi and sausage, and great service. Will be back!

Best hidden gem in the area. Dinner was incredibly good. I haven't had a meal that made me think of home and the cooking of my childhood ever. But I did tonight.

This family owned and operated restaurant is a gem in the K-W area. The food is great, and I love their house wine. We just ate there tonight, and for my husband and I, the bill was $50. That included 1 large and 1 small schnitzel with real potato home fries and vegetables, half litre of wine and 2 desserts.... More

I've visited Veslo's several times being in the neighborhood and each time was not a disappointment. Delicious shopska salad and mains. I don't love the crunchy coating on the tilapia but otherwise enjoyed the schnitzel and soups. A great location for a casual lunch or dinner with a small group.

This place does a Serbian take on Eastern European cuisine. There are some dishes not necessarily associated with Serbia (goulash, Viennese schnitzel) and they are decent. It fits well with the overall theme of Kitchener being a German city, and while this place is not exactly German, it captures the Central European culinary influences better than most restaurants in the...

Go about once a month. Very nice people. Have had other local schnitzel but it did not compare to here.

This was an excellent restaurant to go to. The schnitzel is absolutely HUGE... and great! Must have the schnitzel roll stuffed with cheese and pickles and wrapped in bacon. Wonderful atmosphere. Space is a little small - but a great place for a date or about 6 people gathering. I will definitely be back!
