I had done a lot of researching on trip advisor about where to go on our recent trip to Tortola and was quite excited about checking out Bananakeet Cafe. I do agree with everyone that the views are unmatched; so amazing at sunset!! However, our dinner order took almost 2 hrs to come out to us and in my opinion,... More

This has the best view on the island. Try to go at sunset and watch the world go by. Food and service were excellent!

I need to be fair to Bananakeet in saying that we dropped in with 8 people without a reservation. They had plenty of seating available but they had just seated two large groups for dinner. They said it would be a wait...and they weren't kidding. Our appetizers were amazing, fish (crab) fritters. We just didn't order enough. We did enjoy... More

Great views and great food. We have a little table for two by the pool but still had a great view of the ocean. The pork was excellent. One of our best meals of the trip.

Overlook Tortola's west end and Jost Van Dyke-views that go on for miles. And the food is good too! Sit by the balcony or poolside, makes no difference. You may want to tell them to save you the piece of pie you are pining for. But if they are out of it, just go for your second choice. Either one... More

Excellent food, excellent drinks, amazing view, friendly staff! A must see while in Tortola, BVI. Perfect for dinner, or for drinks before hopping to the next amazing dinner spot. Located high up on the mountain, and offers lodging as well.

We spent a week on Tortola and this was definatly a stand out spot, not only for the unforgettable views, but the service, cocktails and food was incredible. What started as a sundowner and a small plate, ended up being a full on dinner and desert. Unforgettable part of our holiday.
