Veni Mange is authentic...the real island feeling. You would expect Graham Greene it James Bond to walk in for rum punch. The food is real creole, amazing taste. Great service and especially charming owner. I will go back!

Love the atmosphere hereI An absolute "must" for anyone coming to Port of Spain. The staff is friendly, the food is good and the drinks are reasonably priced. The proprietor, Roses, will make you feel at home.

Eat here. You'll love it. No need to expand. It's just really good. The drinks made from local fruits are to die for. The only thing wrong with this place is that is isn't open more.

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. The soups and bread were amazing! The main courses were perfectly seasoned! The desserts were... 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, plus the range of succulent side dishes ensured that we certainly didn't go hungry. There... More

Always take visiting reps here, just so they can feel the local spirit. Never fails. Being only half trini it is an experience for me too. The décor , the open plan old architecture. It is a different feel to the other modern restaurants in POS. And the food is very good..fresh , well prepared and delicious. Unpretentious and relaxing.... More

This awesome creole restaurant here in Trinidad has tasty food, friendly atmosphere and great hospitality serving vegetarian and local cuisine. You gotta go there and you must interact with the owner Roses - she is a truly "spicy" persona! When you go in you go to the bar and have a beverage - of the alcoholic or non alcoholic flavor!...

With stunning artwork adorning the walls of the restaurant, Veni Mange's hostess made us feel welcome from the time we entered the door. The restaurant located on "the Avenue" is refreshing sight of traditional Caribbean house architecture. The servers ensured we were enjoying our meal, asking us at intervals how we're doing. The food was served in quick time and... More

The atmosphere is really cool - extremely 'Caribbean' feeling and a nice small bar to have a drink before or after. Food is a nice mix of seafood, meat prepared with a very 'homemade' feel. Mix of seafood (good selection of different fish, shrimp) as well as some meats. Don't expect overly sophisticated prep or presentation - more like you're... More
