Just Average

This place was recommended in the guidebook so we decided to give it a try but were not overly impressed. The food was average, I've definitely had better and more authentic Jamaican food elsewhere. Also, they seemed to be out of a lot of the menu items.

There's always shenanigans at Anna Banana, so much so that it's become part of the charm of this place. But this last trip was just BEYOND. A normal dinner at Anna Banana could involve ordering from a menu, only to be told an hour later that the kitchen doesn't have your requested item. Only to be handed the menu again,... More

I enjoyed a nice pork chop there. The staff were very friendly & helpful for getting our order in (from a group of 13). Enjoyed the atmosphere & seaside location. One of the staff taught one of the members of our group how to fold cloth napkins in a manner reminiscent of a bow. Nice place.

We ate here two in one week.... can't beat that. Seafood, drinks, and not far from our hotel. Decent prices, too.

Limited vegetarian options. Great location with great views from some of the seating. Food was Ok, but nothing fantastic. A bit on the pricey side too.

Food ok. A lot of items on the menu unavailable. Service very willing but inexperienced. No bottles of wine for sale, only one glass of white wine - not much good for a couple No desserts available, not even ice cream. Would not return.

I feel bad writing such a terrible review because the service was good and waitstaff very friendly - but the food was awful. Overpriced tourist garbage. If you've had real Jamaican food, this place is a joke. Coconut shrimp was slimy, soup tasted like it came out of a can, and steamed veggies were essentially hot lettuce. PLEASE stick to... More

So we waited about an hour and a half for our food. I slowly became HANGRY. Most restaurants would offer a discount, but seems like they were more interested in tips. The food however was amazing. We had the fry fish. Rice and peas was perfect. So it did make up for the time spent. And to be fair. Portland... More

This place is one of the few place to offer a decent service in terms of trained staff. Jamaican restaurants tend to be very poor on the service front. This place has a good international standard with a chill vibe. Do not get me wrong everything isn't perfect.... overall the food is good and the location is nice so thumbs... More

I've been many times to Ana Banana. We chose to go on a Friday evening expecting live music but there was none that evening and service was very slow though the food was quite good when it finally arrived
