Amazing sunset views!!!! Must see for a sunset dinner! :)

We ate dinner here on our last night, and watched the sunset. Amazing food and views. They passed out rum shots during the sunset. We loved this place!

This was recommended for the views. Which the views are incredible and would highly recommend that you go. The food was better than I/we thought it would be. Good selection but nothing special. Casual.

Happy hour between four and six is worthwhile and the view is stupendous. Their pork tenderloin is a specialty and well worth it it was delicious. Their shrimp in a coconut cream sauce with rice was equally as good. Go around sunset because it's gorgeous and everybody does banana shots on the house.

A real sporty taxi ride from Road Town/Nanny Cay, but well worth the trip up over and around, directly across the island. The sunset was the best we saw in 2 weeks in BVI. Well up the hill, closer to the top than the beach; faces the sunset over Jost. Great meals, great drinks. The staff was very attentive, and... More

Dinner at Bananakeet on our last night on Tortola was the best meal we had. Live music, awesome view across to Jost Van Dyke Island at sunset, great drinks, and then the best: dinner! You can't go wrong.

Hiked to the restaurant for dinner tonight with my family. The food was delicious and the service was great. The view was beautiful and the sunset over the islands was very pretty. The restaurant even gives a free shot during the sunset.

The food is very good. I completely agree with BjornFB. Staff is also very friendly. Bring a sweater for when the sun goes down.

Great spot for seeing the sunset and one of two places we returned to for dinner. The food is amazing! Crab fritters were awesome. Scallops over pasta was awesome. Key lime cheesecake was awesome. Their signature drink is a blended bananakeet which was more like dessert but DELICIOUS! This HAS to be on your list for this island.

Went to celebrate a birthday...getting there is not for the faint of heart, as there are many switchbacks and crazy steep (albeit FUN) twists to the road, yet I assure you, it's well worth the trip! My advice would be to wait until dessert to have their signature drink, the blended BananaKeet, as it's SO rich, you'll not want to... More

We've eaten in a lot of nice restaurants and we've seen a lot of great views over the years, but here you get both. We watched the sunset and shared some memory-for-life food with good friends. Fantastic.
