Lovely friendly family run place

A great place for breakfast, lunch or evening meal and music. Lovely atmosphere and always a warm welcome from Barry and Anna there. If you are in the area of Le Cruz check it out.

We had a great Sun lunch listening to the music there. We went to La Cruz Sun market and then had a pleasant meal and afternoon at Ana Banana. It is a good place to hang out and the staff make you feel welcome.

We didn't eat here but this was THE place to be February 27th (a Friday night). There was a live band playing 70's and 80's music that had the dance floor full from the first song to the last. They let you sign your name on the wall to say you've been there. Legend was told that has about 30... More

We go here every year we visit Mexico. It's not for the food (which is ok) but totally for the atmosphere. It's a great place to relax and listen to some fantastic music, all in the great outdoors. Love it!

Formally informal; Ana B is a tradition with the gringo crowd in La Cruz. The food is just okay but everything is basically outside, inexpensive and very relaxing. You can sign your name on the restaurant wall; there's room now that they whitewashed the old wall that was chock full. Wander around while waiting for your food and look at... More

Would be a perfect five stars but I cannot comment on the food as we didn't eat. As far as drinks, music and atmosphere - there is no better place to be on a Friday night. Four Wheel Drive, the band - has possibly the best (at least amateur) guitarist - I have ever heard. So if you are up... More

Ana Banana's has an energetic atmosphere you can feel the moment you enter. It was recommended that we go on Fridays because of the great live band they have. I have to admit, Four Wheel Drive (the band) was flawless! They played music for all ages, but even as a 26 year old there, I loved the "oldies" and classics... More

Stopped in for a beer but it is a place well worth seeing. Heard that they had live music but we will have to go back to see that. I think it is definaely worth another visit. Ate there last year and it was very good.

We have been coming to la cruz for a few years now. Ana Bananas is always one of the first places we hit. Food is good, social stuff is top notch and a good place to listen to live music a few nights a week. If you are looking for fancy...look elsewhere. Ana's is full on make yourself at home..you...

Just a little open air, mom and pop restaurant which is sheltered from the sun and rain. Nice inexpensive breakfast selection. Can't wait to go for dinner on Wed, Fri or Sat and enjoy there live music.
