Excellent cuisine. Beautiful location to watch the sunset, on top off hill over looking bay and islands across the way. Mahi mahi in coconut cream sauce, rice, and vegetables was delicious and presentation excellent.

We had our family dinner here, the staff was very friendly and attentive. My kids wanted ribs, our waitress allowed us to order a plate of ribs and severed it on two plates. Instead of dividing it at the table, we appreciated that. The food came in a very timely manner and it was delicious. My husband ordered fish which... More

My wife and I love to eat dinner at the Bananakeet. The sunsets are marvelous and the folks there are wonderful. We try to get back as much as possible and have never been disappointed.

This is a great place to go to catch sunsets. We've been there three times and each time it was a unique sunset with views of Jost VanDyke, St. Thomas and surrounding islands. Meals have always been well prepared and timely. Stop in on Fridays and listen to Ruben Chinner, always a treat.

Very friendly staff, great food. Ribs were our favorite, but everything we ordered was solid. View is great, even after the sun sets.

After a week of sailing around the BVI's, on the recommendation of a friend, eight of us went to dinner at BananaKeet Cafe. The drive from Road Town was worth the extra time it took for the photo stops along the route. We were met by Kimmy who was a doll and the drink choices were very unusual and really... More

We have been going here for vacation for years and always come to BananaKeet for at least one meal. They have a nice friendly atmosphere but turn out awesome tasty meals every time. On Wednesday and Friday they have great live music in the background also.

Went for the sunset view (free sundowner drink), but fell in love with the Caribbean style steak. Incredibly delicious, with either sauce.

Have fun climbing the mountain to get to the restaurant, especially in the rain. However, the higher the better for the sunset. It has amazing views as the sun went down. The drinks were great, but the food was lacking for us. Maybe it was just because of how picky we were. Whatever you do, do not order the Caesar... More

We celebrated the end of our vacation with dinner at Bananakeet and it was a highlight of the trip! The views are incredible, and the complimentary rum shot at sunset was a pleasant surprise. The ribs were a great deal and very tasty. The dinner salads are HUGE which is only fair since they cost $10-$12 but we were having... More
