What we loved: The quality of food is great at Vesna, we’ve experience this earlier as well. It’s so rich and flavorsome, there’s nothing ever wrong with the food. The brunch started off with a buffet for the salads, etc. The mains are then brought to your table. From the cold servings, we loved the salmon it was super fresh and so were the salads. The mashed potato was absolutely mouthwatering, it was made perfectly! I don’t think I’ve tasted better mashed potato. Every dish was very well cooked, even things like the asparagus. I usually find myself struggling with the asparagus at restaurants because it’s not 100% cooked but this one at Vesna was done very well. Another dish that surprised us was the sea bass, we usually don’t enjoy sea bass but the one served here was very different, it tasted delicious and the sauce it was topped with just went very well with it, we definitely enjoyed this dish.
What we didn’t like as much: The food (as mentioned above) was great but we just felt like the brunch overall wasn’t very well organized. I feel like the selections could have been better. It was also difficult to get a hold on the waiters/servers and they also took a while to get what you ordered. We went to the dessert section towards the end and were really disappointed with how unorganized it was! There was barely any dessert left and the place was just very messy. Even though it was almost the end time of the brunch, we still expecedt it to be organized and restocked.
What we recommend:
- Mashed potato
- Sea bass
Ambiance: Almost a full house!
