Great meal and service. I had the whole red snapper with the garlic sauce-fantastic! Carlos was a wonderful waiter and speaks fluent English. He really explained how the meals were prepared and really makes you feel welcome and special. To get there, take the road to the north of the big church east about 1/4 mi and the restaurant is...

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service was terrific. The chuletas and tres leches are superb. We will definitely go back!

Very attentive service, with not much in the line of English spoken - which is my issue not theirs. Hand waiving and pointing is the universal language the world over and it worked just fine at Mi Banana. We got there just as they opened for the evening at 6pm. There is also a lunch seating from 11-3 as I... More

Mi Banana...how I've missed you! Great dinner last night with dear friends. We had the wahoo in creole sauce, whole fried red snapper, and shrimp. Crazy delicious, as usual. Prompt and friendly service by Carlos and his Mom. I have to laugh at some of the reviews: first of all, please, it's Colombian and Colombia. Columbia is the esteemed university... More

Off the main strip but easy to find is Mi Banana, a quaint little bar that serves a fantastic fish soup and a chicken stuffed with ricotta, hmmm , this was meltm in the mouth cuisine that would be more at home on the Champs de elysees. The sauce was rich and well prepared and with the nice touch of... More

Despite my preference for less chewy cuts of beef, I wholeheartedly recommend Mi Banana. The service was impeccable, it's a full bar and the fish was outstanding.

My family tries to avoid the tourist spots on vacation. We finally found an excellent local place at Mi Banana. The family who owns & runs the restaurant. It was fun to listen to the waiter give a run down of the menu & the families speciality dishes from Colombia. It was the 1st meal that everyone loved every bite.... More

This spot is a bit hard to find and we weren't all that impressed when we got there, despite numerous glowing recommendations from the locals. If you don't speak Dutch or Spanish, there is a serious language barrier and it was apparent that our orders only partly got through. We all ordered fish, which arrived very heavily buttered. Side dishes... More
