We are here as a treat in our last night in Tortola. The view is stunning the staff very friendly. We all got something different and decided the Chimichuri argentine steak was the best!! Would go again if we ever get the opportunity.

The food was excellent. The view is great. We missed the sunset so we came back a second time for drinks and watch the sun come down: this place is known for watching a great caribbean sunset! A very romantic place for dinner. Service was very good also. Definitely will come back next time we visit the island.

BananaKeet Cafe is a casual Cafe with a Million dollar view!! Along with a great view, this is a nice casual place for dinner. The terrace is the place to be; sit back and order a cocktail or your favorite wine, along with a basic yet effective menu, relax and enjoy the experience. I would like to recommend everyone visiting... More

Six of us went to BananaKeet to have an dinner with a wonderful view. Everyone loved the place. We had an incredible sunset and wonderful food. The Grouper Catch of the Day and Churassco Beef were fabulous.

Every table has a great view, dining Al fresco high above the ocean overlooking the water toward Jost Van Dyke. Excellent food and presentation, as well.

We visited Bananakeet for the fourth time on this visit to the BVI. It was a fantastic experience, as usual. Tia was our server and could not have been more attentive and fun. We ordered the potato leek soup and the ginger chicken. The soup was good, though it needed a touch more seasoning. The chicken was just wonderful, as... More

We visited with a group of friends. Without exception the food was delicious - particularly the coconut shrimp. We couldn't appreciate the sunset as sadly it was cloudy, however the view is beautiful. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive - and Ninja lived up to his reputation! Would thoroughly recommend

So you cannot be faint of heart and drive around Tortola - the windy roads and switchbacks making driving exhilarating! It is worth navigating the twists and turns to get to the BananaKeet Cafe. High on a hilltop, it has the best view for a sunset. Better yet, the nice folks there provide a shot at sunset - why not... More
