The treetop setting is unique and beautiful. For starters, we had delicious cocktails, flatbread, and steak and lettuce wraps. We both had the mahi mahi entree, which was superb. Everyone was lovely. Service was not great, but the food and setting made up for it.

We went to Veya last night- two adult couples for an enjoyable meal! We were told only good things! Be aware the restaurant is up in a tree house and you get flying cockroaches along with the meal… while eating the cockroaches were crawling up...the wall, landed on my husbands back, on my hand, and on the chairs. The restaurant didn’t do anything about it and made us pay for our entire meal of $500 plus! Insanity! I am giving it a 2/5 because the bread and food was delicious- but hard to enjoy with the cockroaches around us.More

A fun place to grab a tasty dinner. The seating is like a tree house. The Johnny cakes and breads you start with are a treat. I had the salad with pears, goat cheese, and lemon vinaigrette dressing and it was excellent. My main dish...of seared fish on mashed potatoes was perfectly cooked and delicious. They have a good wine list to complimentMore

This restaurant is fabulous! I love the food here. A little pricey but good for the soul. I had the baked beets and the duck breast. Done to perfection. So tasty. The staff are beyond this world. They even drove me home after dinner because...of my disability. They were very attentive, friendly, and knew the answers to all my questions. It’s set back from the road which is wonderful. Nice and quiet. Another must when in Anguilla!More

We stayed on the island for 5 nights, we stayed at the four seasons, ate at the best restaurants that were recommended and this one was by far the most flavorful meal. It’s a chef owned restaurant and you can tell in every single dish....Absolutely unforgettable dinner!More

We have tried lots of restaurants on the island and so many of them are good, but I would say Veya stands out as one of the excellent ones! We had the lobster, grilled and poached with risotto and it was delicious! The ambiance was...terrific- super cute and even live music! Service was great as well! Must try!More

On arrival at Veya there had been a mix-up and the staff couldn´t find our booking on midsummer´s eve. We were shown a table in the back with a view of the changing and delivery area for the staff. I was not amused, since this...was the ONLY top class dining place we chose in three weeks on Anguilla due to the general cost level. AND it was Mid summer, which is an important day for us Swedes, AND our honeymoon. We were changed to another table with no fuss but no excuses or pardons, either. Veya is not a cheap restaurant, but their tasting menu for USD 75 is surprisingly good and att a very good value for money. The owner came out herself and presented her slipper lobsters. Excellent service throughout the meal from our server, who lived in Island Harbour, just as we do, and from the sommelier. Solid presentations of beautiful courses. Reasonable wine package, But USD 370 including tax and tip for two, Nevertheless, we would go back in a heartbeat next time we are on the island in spite of that.More

Loved Veya!!! Like being in a treehouse surrounded by lush trees! Food choices were excellent and the bar choices were great. Hubby had the Rack of Lamb which was divine and I had the fish which was awesome. Staff was friendly and really great. Highly...recommend going to Veya!!!More

The food was outstanding from this treehouse! You walk into this beautiful mahogany structure and are greeted by a very kind staff! The Johnny cakes were the best I had on the whole island and complimentary! They were out of the mahi dish when we...were there so they replaced with snapper! It was awesome! Highly recommend! Plus the live music was the perfect pairing!More

Had a lovely dinner at this beautiful restaurant and then relaxed with some Amari Banks music downstairs afterward. We enjoyed the daily crudo, crayfish and mahi mahi.

On an island chock-full of great restaurants, it says something if you visit twice. I love the treehouse atmosphere, and the welcoming staff who remembered us ( and what we ordered!) from the week before. Let’s start with the bread basket! Yum. Johnny cakes, banana...bread and pumpkin bread. Yes, please. Great salads, soups and apps. Lobster is, of course, amazing, but the sides show true skill, as well. Wine list is very good, too. Desserts all delicious. See you next April!More

We dined here our first evening back in Anguilla and choose Veya to dine on our first evening because we have really loved it previously. But we were disappointed this time. The food was just ok - not spectacular. I barely ate my crudo (which...was not what I expected) and my husband's food was just ok. Also they have a lot of large parties, which made the restaurant noisy and not so pleasant. There are many other dining options in Anguilla that are better.More

We specifically wanted to dine here to enjoy live music, which seems to be most evenings. We sat outside and could hear the musician perfectly, whom was set up and playing on the ground level. While the music was great, the service was quite slow....There was a very long pause between cocktails, appetizers, dinner, and dessert. We ordered soup and salad to start, which were both excellent. The dinner entrees were just so/so. Next time we are in town, we’ll probably give this place another try as we definitely enjoyed the treehouse like ambiance and the live music.More

What a beautiful restaurant, with fantastic food. However, the staff seemed rushed and distracted, our food (appies and entrees) came out at different times, so we weren't really eating at the same time. For such an expensive dinner, it really was disappointing.
