Drinks on the upper deck at sunset - their signature Bertini made with passion fruit - was followed by dinner in the main dining room nestled in the midst of the palm trees. Our entrees of local Lobster Linguini and Caribbean Jerk Chicken were fantastic.

Once you get there on less than satisfactory roads you will have delicious and memorable evening. Attractive restaurant on the mountain slope with lovely gardens. Food and service excellent. Must have the lobster linguine. Lots of lobster in delicious cream sauce. Marinated skirt steak very good. Mussels exceptional. Molten chocolate mcakemis a great way to end the meal. If you... More

We opted to go here for lunch rather than for dinner. We had a meal plan from the Nisbet Plantation where we stayed and the dinners there were excellent. It gave us something to explore during the day after sitting on the beach for some time. We took a cab there and it was a 20-25 minute ride from our... More

It is a drive to the restaurant, but when you get there, you will be happy about it. The restaurant is situated among trees and flowers. We had frequent views from humming birds and other birds during lunch. I had lobster salad. The lobster was ok, a little tough. The leafy greens are wonderful. Did not get them in the... More

We followed the signs up the mountain using some very rough roads, and found this garden oasis. Good food, friendly service.

Went with my wife for lunch and it was well worth it. My wife had the lobster linguine and I had the local fish with a Thai red curry sauce. To finish we shared the chocolate fondant. All perfectly cooked and scrumptious. The ambiance even at lunchtime was fabulous lots of chill out music and the staff so very attentive.... More

Went here 2/21/17 via cab from FS, with reservations. Great dinner: she had the jerk chicken, said it was perfect... pumpkin soup to die for. I had smoked wahoo (awesome) and the lamb shanks - meaty, cooked to perfection. Our waitress was outstanding. The ONLY problem, which was beyond the control of the mgmt, were the parties at two nearby... More

Located up in the rain forest halfway up Mt. Nevis. The palms, flowers and views are great and excellent sunset location. A top deck for viewing and cocktails. The dining area is comfortable relaxing, staff is attentive and friendly. The food is splendid, especially for a foodie. Had a Moroccan lamb shank with veg and mash. Mmmm. Spouse had some... More

It's funky and fun; it's generally full; the food is good and the experience memorable. Lovely tables on the terrace and excellent service. Decent choice of wines; interesting art to look at and a great bar.

The food, location, the atmosphere all have a Nevisian flair to it. The drive up to the restaurant and the walk up the lighted walkway begins the culinary journey of a tropica inspired menu. There is an opportunity to have drinks first and take in the beautiful setting and the sounds of the tropical forest setting. The food was very... More

Description
Situated on the edge of the Rainforest Bananas is casual fun dining in a magical setting. We take our food very seriously but it is good home cooking prepared by hard working local ladies, not fancy or Gourmet.. However our menu is very creative and we use only fresh ingredients and where possible free range organic produce and meats. We have Magnificent Sunset views from our Firefly lounge and a superb selection of cocktails and old rums and a small selection of cuban Cigars.
