Way Laid Back...

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... read 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.

After taking a all day tour on the Chica Locca boat and many drinks and a lot of sun, we ventured into a locals bar and grill called Ana Banana. The unfortunate part is we bareley remeber the experience but know we had a good time and met some cool people. We even exchanged numbers. Anyway I think you will... More

My husband and I went here last Jan. Food not bad, entertainment good, but we had to leave because of all the cigarette smoking. So if you're a non smoker I wouldn't recommend this place.

Food is good enough - beer is normal - but the music is to remember. We first came here in 2005 - on our sailboat. Been back several times on the boat and back again Feb-Apr 2014 - thankfully it's gotten even better. Barry and Ana are the owners - Barry plays and sings also and stands back and lets... More

This restaurant always has great local entertainment and is more like a coffee house than a restaurant. Nothing special, just a good place to hang out.
