Description: Situated on the edge of the Rainforest Bananas is casual fun dining in a magical setting. We take our food very seriously but it is good home cooking prepared by hard working local ladies, not fancy or Gourmet.. However our menu is very creative and we use only fresh ingredients and where possible free range organic produce and meats. We have Magnificent Sunset views from our Firefly lounge and a superb selection of cocktails and old rums and a small selection of cuban Cigars.

Excellent food, a bit slow service because we were too many people coming at the same time, beautiful terrace on the top floor overlooking the lights of Charlestown. We were there when it was already very dark, try to go a bit earlier and enjoy the view. Take a taxi, it is not that easy to find the place yourself.... More

We went to Bananas for dinner based on a recommendation... And we were not disappointed! Set up in the hills, it's perhaps not the easiest place to find, so... Don't drive, just get a taxi! (We would recommend John "Ford" Parris 1-869-469-5567 or cell 1-869-663-1712 - lovely guy who has a clear love of his island). Location: Beautiful, overlooking Charlestown.... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Bananas on our last night on Nevis. The view from the top level is amazing if you're fortunate enough to be there to catch the sunset! The service is extremely friendly! Be sure to wear bug repellent especially if you're sitting outside. You don't see the mosquitoes; you just feel the after bite!

I was so glad we'd decided to keep our rental car for another day. Though the weather was very rainy, there is something right about going up towards the rain forest -- where Bananas is located -- on a rainy day. What a delightful surprise! Nestled among tropical gardens, the cottage features eclectic décor and rather sophisticated preparations of traditional... More

we had heard so many great things about this place and were not disappointed. We choses to drive since the taxi was more expensive than the hire car! Suggest driving there whilst it's still light as it's not easy to find in the dark at all! Anyhow watching the beautiful sunsets from the roof is part of the experience. Fantastic... More

Bananas is part art showcase, part house party, part a see-and-be-seen spot and part really well crafted menu. Beautiful garden and veranda setting--it's worth getting there early to see the sun set over the sea.

My wife, daughter, and I recently visited Bananas for dinner. We made it in time for sunset, and were directed to the upper deck for the best view. Our waitress brought up drinks, and we have a very enjoyable cocktail while watching the sunset. After a cocktail, we went back downstairs, and had dinner. My wife had the Thai curry... More
