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.

You can dine comfortably seated on wicker chairs, the tables are placed on the terraces. The building is mostly made ​​of wood and has the typical charm of the West Indies; moreover, it's an art gallery. The restaurant combines Caribbean... 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

It was the second to last day of our honeymoon when I was talking to a seasoned couple about romantic places to dine on Nevis. Sure, my new wife and I had a great time at Nisbet Plantation, but we were looking for something spectacular. The lady says to me, "No, don't go to the Golden Rock, go to Bananas."... More

We has a wonderful lunch at Bananas! Excellent rum punch but even better food. We got the taste of Nevis platter to share along with the lobster pasta. The pasta was excellent, but the real treat was the sampling of different dishes that are familiar to the island. Don't be afraid of the "goat water"-it was amazing! We enjoyed walking... More

Read reviews and told my wife that we had to go. Went yesterday with wife and family. First, it's a ways up the mountain to get there....in a secluded area, but that's ok. The atmosphere is out of this world! A beautiful array of foliage greets you and escorts you throughout the restaurant. We were greeted by the beautiful Ophelia,... More

We have visited Bananas on several occasions , it's always a must when we visit Nevis. The food is excellent, the staff charming and attentive and I love the location which is a bit off the beaten track. We would never miss eating there when on island and neither should you!

We had a wonderful experience at Bananas Bistro, located in a lush garden up a mountain side in Nevis with lovely views of the sea far below. Even if the food was average, it's worth going for the experience. But the food is excellent. I was served the best gorgonzola cheese gnocci I have ever had. The vegetable Thai curry... More
