Bananas was more than prepared to handle a group of 18 for dinner. They accept reservations and made sure we came early to watch the spectacular sunset from midway up the mountain. Service was wonderful, food was varied and good. Again we could order from...More

We used to love bananas. It has changed, and I have read the owner's comments in reply to a previous reviewer. This is fair enough. But I can't eat shellfish and the menu is very limited without meat. Not just that, sadly the food was...More

This little restaurant is definitely off the beaten path up in the mountains, but what a find it is! It has a cute gift shop. They provide drinks on the rooftop so you can see the sunset, which was totally worth it. We took a...More

The surroundings of this restaurant are gorgeous though the location is out of the way and could be difficult to find. The building and decor are lovely. The staff were pleasant enough but it was clear to see that their smiles and pleasantries were not...More

We LOVED this place! Feels like you're perched up in the jungle, and the setting is awesome. Food is delicious. Lobster linguine is fantastic and rich. Also had mussels in a great Thai curry broth to start. And I don't even care about cake, but...More

Whenever I'm on Nevis I like to eat at Bananas at least 2 or 3 times in the 18 days we're usually there. The food is excellent, as is the ambiance and the whole experience. What's changed recently, however, is the menu. Whereas before the...More

We just loved Bananas, especially after a very poor evening at Mangoes the night before. The setting and ambience are very cool and the views enjoying a sundowner looking down over Nevis was very pleasant. Food was excellent, great dishes and choice for vegetarians. I...More

This was our best meal and best dining experience on the island. The food here is very vegetarian friendly and is so delicious you don’t even notice. We went about 30mins before sunset and had the roof top area to ourselves while we enjoyed a...More

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.
