Went in here for lunch today. We loved it! The staff was friendly and had a great menu selection. I had the cracked conch and my wife had the mahi tacos. We would come here again, for sure!

Banana Boat is overlooking a small bay with a pristine beach and cristal water. Charming place with outside seating under shade. Staff was lovely and food simple but delicious: cracked conch, mahi mahi burger and grilled fish. Dishes were an average of $12

We had lunch with friends who have been coming there for years. We sat at a overhead covered picnic table with view of the beach. The fish tacos were excellent.

I went there as a lunch/ rest stop on outdoor excursion day trip I had booked through Taino Beach, the resort I stayed at. It did not seem to have a place to get passes, as it's just a little beachside restaurant
