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.

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

Bananas combines wonderful food, stunning views and a welcome second to none. From the moment you arrive, you are warmly greeted as you park your car and meander up the torch lit pathway. The restaurant is decorated with local art work and all of the staff are very welcoming and clearly enjoy what they do. Above the restaurant is a... More

The rave reviews are deserved, and I don't say that lightly. The atmosphere from the greeting at the arch with twinkle lights, torch lighted walkway and lights throughout the trees begins your evening with a sense of romance. We started with the signature Bertini, okay we had two, which were a delicious combination of the sweet passion fruit juice and... More

Amazing views from the mountains. We enjoyed a cocktail on the rooftop deck to watch the sunset prior to dinner. The staff is very pleasant and attentive. Our table split a dish of tannia fritters since none of us had ever heard of it. Very good. Similar to a potato fritter. I really enjoyed my salad with fresh goat cheese,... More

A charming restaurant with interesting cocktails and appetizers. Dinner was well prepared and the service was impeccable. Beautiful plants and flowers line the walkway to the entrance. A beautiful sunset can be seen from the bar upstairs- great for picture taking! ***I recommend taking a cab. The day we rented a car, we tried driving to Banana's and became lost... More

We went with friends last night and, once again, had a lovely experience. We arrived for sunset cocktails and then a wonderful meal. Even though Gillian, the owner, was off Island, her staff were amazing....she has ensured her very high standards are maintained even when she is not there. Attentive, friendly and knowledgable. The whole property looks amazing and there... More

We absolutely loved Bananas from start to finish. It is such a cool, unique place with remarkable views and beautiful art all over the restaurant. The staff was outstanding. We were greeted at the entrance and taken to the upstairs deck to enjoy the sunset views. Behind us was a gorgeous view of Nevis Peak so we were surrounded by... More

Love this little hideaway surrounded by jungle. Great place to have a drink and watch the sunset. WE decided to order food and the plantains and black bean dip was amazing. The fish was so fresh, and the staff very accommodating Thank you for a wonderful evening.
