Great happy hour

Bananas was a great happy hour spot! My husband and I stopped 3 times for a drink and snack after a day at the beach. Always have great happy hour specials and the bartenders and wait staff were so nice and fun! We loved the rum punch and fish and chips!

The food was good, although it needed a little more flavour. I had the Vieques sliders (3 mini burgers with caramelized onions served on Arepas) and where really good, my girlfriend ordered a variation, that instead of beef, had three different kind of fish and where also really good. The waitress service was excellent. Some plates where a little bit... More

Good day Carlos Thank you for your review! Our menu price range is from $3. to $19. Our happy hour menu ranges from $3 to $12 with some items including a local beer. I do not think our prices our unreasonable for the quality of food we serve & the ocean view we offer. Thanks again Kurt & Kelly More

Stopped in for the fish taco special and a few drinks. The food was delicious and the portions were large. We had margaritas and they were tasty and strong. The view of the beach and ocean are beautiful. The restaurant itself is casual and the service was prompt. It is the perfect, laid back beach bar.

We enjoyed a night out at Bananas while our teenage boys stayed at the hotel with pizza. The restaurant was exactly what we were looking for - casual, a step up from bar food, drinks and a beautiful view! We aren't huge eaters so we weren't looking for a huge portion with a ton of food. My husband had a... More

We ate here a lot. The kids menu is on point (our little guy is picky) and the specials were all excellent. We ate mostly seafood and it was all very well prepared and exceptionally fresh. The rum punch is also highly recommended. =)

The $4 margaritas and the $7 burgers with fries were VERY good. The service was excellent. The waitress was very kind, nice and friendly. She was constantly checking on us. Plus, nothing beats a restaurant close to water, it's just gorgeous. Prices might not be too affordable on the regular menu, which is why I rated it a 4, but... More

Place is really cute. The food lacks flavor, without mojito, my snapper was tastless. I ordered rice and beans, and while they were american style, they were poor by any standard. Mofongo de pana Ibreadfruit) was also pretty dull.
