We went here for dinner one night during our stay in Port of Spain and the food was excellent. Great selection of local Trini specials! The staff is super nice, this is a must visit restaurant while in Trinidad! Would go back any day!

Last night I've enjoyed the hospitality that Veni Mange has to offer. In a cosy, somewhat artfull environment both the service and food was excellent. The main dish is to be served on your plate, while lots of additives are places in the centre to share. We've enjoyed a nice chicken and pork chop dish (meat is very good) and... More

As a newcomer to Trinidad I wanted to try the local food without being overwhelmed by anything too spicy-this place is perfect not over priced and the food delicious. The owner is only too happy to explain dishes too.

The food is very tasty capturing the rich flavor and essence of Trinidad & Tobago creole cuisine. The restaurant has a nice cottage feel with a décor reminiscent of Traditional Trinidadian home (Grandma's dinning room). Definitely recommend if you want that authentic Trinidadian dinning experience. Staff is very friendly. Roses the Owner is a jewel...

An awesome place to partake in local cuisine. Roses is warm and welcoming. The food is great and the art on the wall are unique conversation pieces. The rustic, homey ambiance is a welcome break from modern, stuffy restaurants. Their lunch special is great value for money and they have the best soup!

A great afternoon out sitting in a traditional building with good ambiance being served by friendly staff, who remind you of your favourite aunt, with a great range of Trini food. Some quite hot and spicy, which were fantastic, but all plates full of flavour. Walls covered in great which is also for sale. No a/c, but the open sides... More

Very nice "creole" setting, with hospitable welcome. Natural cooling with fans. Food was ok, though not special, and "medium" Caribbean.

Now seeing this as I haven't been to the site for a while. Sorry the food experience did not live up to your expectations. Hopefully if you are ever back this way, we will be able to correct this as our food is usually one of the highlights for most of our guests. Hope you will come again. More
