Just about the best dining experience ever. Drinks were super, food was excellent. The mussels appetizer was superb. Service was outstanding and the view at sunset unparalleled. Tortola at its best.

This was the best service we received in Tortola. They had the food and view to go with it. All around I think this is the best restaurant on the island. The cocktails were good. The wine , like most wine in the Caribbean was pretty bad. It was probably allowed to get hot and not much of a selection

The desk at Frenchmans recommend the Bananakeet for both the view and dinner. We made dinner reservations. We arrived at Carrot Bay just before sunset. It's perched high on a hill, so the view of the bay and surrounding islands is oustanding. Dinner was served, we had a scallop dish, 2 shrimp dishes and one lamb dish. All were very... More

We always eat here every time we come to Tortola. It's one of the few restaurants we ALWAYS visit. The food is always great and the view is like none other! Go at sunset!

This is the second year that I have eaten at this restaurant, and I will return next year. Fabulous food provided by a wonderful owner. The view is incredible. I would strongly recommend getting there before sunset so that you can really enjoy all that comes with this restaurant experience. A must!!! Great drinks, great food and great people!!!

We love this place -- good food, good drinks, and a great setting with spectacular views. On our most recent visit, our oldest daughter got engaged here, and her fiance chose BananaKeet because of the romantic and stunning setting. The only minor drawback is that the service can be a bit slow, but with a drink in your hand and... More

This was my second visit to Bananakeet and the view gets better each time. The food was better on my last visit, as was the service, but still one of the best restaurants in a Tortola.

Went here for dinner last night after a stressful drive on dirt steep mountain roads and having the transmission on our rental jeep fail. The view was incredibly beautiful and the sunset was the perfect end to our day. The good was very good, the flavors were unique twists on mainland favorites. Service was to notch, ninja was our server... More
