Food was ok, atmosphere was nice. The part that bothered me is, I looked up this restaurant on trip advisor and saw 229 very good reviews. After only a little reading, I realized all the good reviews were for the banana cabana, and only a handful of mediocre reviews for the French table. I think its very cheap to take... More

This is a great new spot on Bradenton Beach. We weren't sure what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. It's a small stylish and cosy restaurant run by a husband and wife. The small menu had about 5-6 options for appetizers and also entrees. Everything we had was delicious, in all we tried the salmon salad, the mussels, and... More

First off, the menu listed on TA and most of the reviews are for the now defunct, previous restaurant. French Table does have a much smaller menu with about 5 or 6 appetizers and entrees, each. There is also a small kids menu that includes pasta, hamburger, or cheeseburger with fresh cut fries. We were seated by the very friendly... More

This restaurant is located in what used to be the Banana Cabana restaurant next to Cream ice cream. I've noticed postings about it under that name but they should be here. Anyway, a French couple opened this restaurant at the beginning of October 2014. My husband and I ate here about a month later and it was just great. Menu... More

Really liked Banana Cabana Caribbean Grill for a relaxed meal and friendly service - sometimes with local music. Sadly and to our surprise no longer a Caribbean Grill in October 2014, but a French restaurant which we haven't tried.

We loved everything we had at this restaurant: Grouper Tatare was perhaps our favorite. The duck, Beef Provencal, and the shrimp were all incredible. The au gratin potatoes that came with the duckling were divine. And they have authentic French wines. All of the food is fresh, and the bread is made everyday.

The Banana Cabana is now called the French Table and is under new ownership. This is the first time i've written a review on tripadvisor but felt that our visit here deserved a write up. We were a party of four and visited on a Friday night. We have previously eaten at other 'high end' restaurants (Beach Bistro, Sign of... More

The Banana Cabana has apparently changed hands and is no longer a "Caribbean" restaurant. Despite keeping the same building colors, name and most of its decor, it is now a "French" restaurant. The colors of the building would lead no one to believe it is a French restaurant. The menu is extremely limited, with a choice of 5 entrees priced... More

The wonderful Banana Cabana my wife and I loved is gone, having been sold, and the new owners are selling French Cuisine. While the new people are very pleasant and friendly, this is no longer the Cabana it was just a few weeks ago. I mention this only to help people know that the atmosphere is very, very different. We'll... More

Somehow we've missed this restaurant for the last few years,but now it is a must-do on the list whenever we go to Anna Maria Island. The macadamia grouper IS the reason to go. It is incredible! Cute inside too, tucked away in a strip mall.
