Nice little bar right off the water in Esperanza. Although the walk there was very hot it was cool and pleasant in the restaurant. The food was fun and tasted delicious. Mofongo balls were a true surprise.

Bananas is a laid back, beachy restaurant & bar along the Malecon in Vieques. It's open-air and casual feel help make you feel like you are truly on vacation. The food was great as are the cocktails. I loved my pina colada. My husband always orders mofongo when we are visiting PR and Vieques. He said the mofongo at Bananas was among the best he's had. A great spot!

There were not many places open at the beginning of October, but fortunately Bananas was. We ate here two nights because the food is so good. Service and drinks are also some of the best. We had the Key Wester with fresh snapper and Seafood Mofongo that were delicious. We also had some fried feta that were a special at the time, but not part of the normal menu. Due to the lack of competing restaurants you'd probably eat here out of necessity, but you'll come back because the food is excellent.

Ate there lots of times on our vacation in late September. It was so nice to have a relaxing place to go after a "rough" day at the beach. Cold beer, great apps and excellent entrees. The ahi tuna was especially good. The staff were the best. Esperanza is still on the mend but Bananas is giving all they've got and more.
