This was our third trip to Vieques. Each year, we stop by Bananas at least 3 or 4 times at the end of the day on our way back from the beach to grab a Dirty Banana and watch the sunset. We've never eaten dinner here - occasionally would have an appetizer. This trip we noticed a huge improvement in... More

Can recommend Bananas as a place to while away some time with a chilled glass of beer. Food was good and reasonably priced. Fish was fresh. The view was good and staff

Would have loved a wider selection of local fare, but it was great (relatively cheap) American-style restaurant food!

This restaurant has a very typical beach-locale menu, which is fine by me. I have no problem ordering a standard like a good fish sandwich with a mojito. I had just normal expectations of this place, but Bananas did not meet them at all. The mojito I ordered was so bad that I sent it back - and I am... More

Like most restaurants on vieques, overpriced for what you get. everything had a sweet flavor to it, coconut. Food was good, but not great...duffy's, next door, was better.

I had a carribean salad, cheese stuffed bread, and fried plantains. It was a great after-beach/sun snack and the passion fruit piña colada was delicious! The food was fresh, hot, and delicious!

Like everywhere else on Vieques, the people were super-friendly and super-laid back. We ate there twice during our visit, and the service was consistently good both times. And the food was perfect on both occasions, too! The only problem is deciding what to order -- the menu is extenstive!

Check out the upstairs dining area (only open at night) for a nice view of the water. We ate here twice in late November. Casual lunch downstairs featured very good sandwiches and salad. Nicer dinner upstairs included tasty seafood mofongo and lobster mac. Whole fried snapper was pretty good, too.

The location and view cannot be beat. The menu looks promising but the food was disappointing. The mahi wrap needed flavor, the tostones were lad the the rum punch was from a mix.
