Nice, quiet restaraunt

We visited during lunch time and the place was empty, which was fine since it was nice to have a quiet relaxed meal. Food was fantastic, service was great, and the best part of the entire meal was the desert. Make sure you don't miss out on desert.

This quaint looking place located inside a previously occupied residence has inside and outside sitting ( 2nd floor on the patio). You will be greeted by the owner of Fried Bananas, a nice lady, who works very hard to help you have an excellent experience during your visit. The foods are of fine dining quality and servers are very attentive.... More

Amazing very intimate restaurant near plaza Foch. Plates are less than $10 and perfect portion sizes. We had the trout and the shrimp pasta and both were perfectly done. Try the house dessert to finish off the night. A very intimate experience with a staff that truly cares on ensuring that your meal and stay is perfect. Thanks for a... More

Red the reviews on TA, but as a bit disappointed. Had the avocado soup- which was good, and pasta with chicken. Tasted fine, but nothing impressive. Good value for money though.

My wife and I were tired and just were looking for a casual meal. We came to the right place. A little off the beaten path, Fried Bananas was a lovely little venue. The food,/ the presentation were very nice, and wait staff accommodating. My wife's trout dish was particularly tasty. This is not high end gourmet, but everything was... More
