Bananakeet is the place to visit to watch the sunset over a good meal. It was cloudy the night we visited, so we didn't get the best view of the sun setting, but enjoyed the sundown shot they brought round! The food was good, I had jerk pork for my main course and a banana caramel baked tortilla for dessert,... More

it was 4 o'clock in the afternoon and we tried to eat or have a drink in this place . The very stroppy young waitress told us with very harsh tone of voice that they were booked up and pointed to the far corner by the pool for an available place. It was 4 o'clock and the tone of her... More

Arrived for the sunset and was seated just under cover which was appreciated since had been raining on and off. I have heard others comment on the slow service and it was slow. We were actually forgotten for a while after being seated but there were lots of apologies. I find the service at dinner time tends to be a... More

Visited BananaKeet Cafe at dinner time with friends and to celebrate a birthday. Even though we did not have a reservation, we were welcomed and had a wonderful time, especially the discount for the birthday girl. It is someplace where you can go solo, take a friend or the entire family. I would recommend this place for its great service... More

The food is consistently good although not really what I would consider spectacular. The atmosphere and service however are outstanding!

Returned to Bananakeet after having visited in the past. Just as every other time had a great meal. However, this time it was truly the most amazing meal. I had the Caribbean steak which was absolutely delicious. Best meal on Tortola. Tender steak, amazing sauce, big piece. My plate was empty and my tummy extremely satisfied. Will be back when...

We had a very average meal here last week. We started with the fried calamari, which was one of the worst single items i have ever had at a restaurant ever, anywhere. They tasted as though they had been fried a few hours earlier, as they were dry, cold, and chewy. Ew. Just gross. For our main course, I had... More

Absolutely top-notch! I can't imagine a more beautiful setting, more wonderful people or more delicious food. We visited Bananakeet twice during our stay on Tortola - a rarity for us as we usually do not repeat restaurants because we like to try as many place as we can. But it was just too delicious and beautiful not to go again!... More
