We ate at Bananas twice, and the food was great both times. A mix of local Puerto Rican fare as well as standard American food.

We ate lunch here one afternoon and it was good. Good location and easy to find. Probably the best happy hour on the island. Waiters are friendly and great service. Food was good. Great view.

Bananas tops many of the local spots on the malecon. The food is creative, delicious, and priced for families. Save room for the flan.

Great food and really good place to get dinner after a day at the beach. Location was perfect for watching the sunset.

The food here was ok. What really got me was how expensive it was. On top of that we were a party of 5 and were automatically charged a 18% gratuity. Normally I tip 20% anyway but this seemed out of the norm. Service was really nice.

Such a lovely place for lunch, or any meal for that matter! Our waiter was fantastic; it is very easy to go overboard with such a great menu. Great view, great food and great staff. We will be back for sure.

I don't usually submit 'poor' reviews, yet we found this place to be overrated - the food was just okay, and the drinks were not even okay - how can you mess up a rum punch?

Good spot to eat, drink, and watch the happenings on the Malecon at a moderate price. Not fancy but food was well prepared and filling. Great atmosphere to sit back and relax!!!
