Have been to BananaKeet many times and it's one of our must-see stops when visiting Tortola. The drive up the hills to get there can be a bit tough to navigate if you don't have four wheel drive. Once there, you'll have great ambiance, great food, great drinks and the best sunset view on the island. Very romantic (but have... More

The restaurant is on top of a hill with views to die for. Go early and have snack and drinks then the movie starts with the sun set it is amazing. The food is good, hit or miss but good. Their desert was the best besides the sunset and breeze

Took half an hour just to get asked what we wanted to drink, then another half hour to pay and leave. Staff very surly when we complained about the time it took.

You can't beat the view at banankeet and the food did not disappoint. We had a lovely meal here w/10 ppl. The service was great, a little slow but it's island time. The food was fantastic and the drinks were really good too. Def the best sunset in the BVI's, not to be missed.

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

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
