Breathtaking Dining

Not only are the views stunning from this Cliffside perch, but the food is reputed to be the best on Tortola. Be sure to plan your meal at sunset for the optimum advantage.

We ate here our last night in Tortola and it was a perfect finale to our trip. The sunset view was unbelievable, and then just kept getting better. I recommend making reservations 1/2 hour before sunset to enjoy the view and get a great table. We started with a Vojito martini that was good and nicely presented along with bruschetta.... More

WoW - what a great place to watch the sun go down; VERY accommodating staff-even though we did not have a reservation, I swear they gave us the best table in the house! Kimmie is so SWEET and helpful as is the rest of the staff. Rack of Lamb looked wonderful but was a little chewy while the rest of... More

Probably the best place to watch the sunset while dining in Tortola, had the sesame seed pan seared tuna with a wasabi sauce and it was the best piece of tuna i've eaten to date. Will visit again.

We took a drive here for dinner. A little out of the way, but well worth it! The view is absolutely incredible. The food was delicious and the stage was very friendly. They even have little lights at each table in case it gets too dark for your liking while you eat. The road that leads here is something. It... More

We went here based on TA reviews, and because it was about a ten minute drive from our accommodations. Boy, were we happy with our decision. Unbeatable majestic view, best happy hour we found on Tortola (free sunset shots!), and good food. The best part, though, was the service - specifically how fast we got our food. In the Virgin...

So lucky to have had the opportunity to experience sunset and a complimentary sundowner drink at this perfectly located restaurant. Was there for a business dinner with colleagues who had recommended it. The food was very good but nothing exceptional. The staff were very polite and as I said before, the view and atmospherics as the sun went down was... More

Definately worth the drive out to Bananakeet. Tried their bushwhacker and blended banana pom. Both very good cocktails to enjoy while the sunsets! Get their well before sunset to get a good spot

We were not very lucky while visiting BK Cafe out of the dishes that I wanted to order none wa available. I ended up ordering chicken which was nothing special and my girlfriend had lamb rack which was ok. Service nice but slow. Wouldn't go there again

My husband & I went for an early dinner To BananaKeet Cafe with friends. We were in time for sunset but unfortunately it was a little cloudy, so we made up for that by enjoying a few of the infamous 'painkillers'. Great views from this little tucked away spot. Dinner was very good, we were all happy with our choices... More
