We ate dinner in the Ti Bananne restaurant at the edge of Coco Palm hotel grounds on the night of our arrival 25 January 2012. We had garlic bread and the Cajun chicken Caesar salad which was perfectly OK; the service being at the pace we expected from previous reports of typical Caribbean lifestyle. The waitress attempted to sell us a trip to the Pitons which we refused; surely not her job.
One attempt to order cappuccino coffees at the restaurant bar once during the first week was unsuccessful and we ended up with black coffees; probably a communication problem.
We ate here again on the first Friday night where they had a barbecue and a steel band playing at a reasonable volume. The prices and choice of food which had been listed visibly on a board outside the restaurant all week included barbecued fish and chicken. It was enjoyable and a good price.
The waitress who brought us our drinks , yes the same one as our first night, attempted again to sell us a trip to the Pitons!
The restaurant, the menu and service did not appeal to us during our three week stay or so and we ate at one or other of the many good restaurants in the area.
We were told that Ti Bananne was being wound down prior to a change in management and a week after our arrival it was taken over by the manager of the nearby Chinese restaurant. The board advertising the barbecue was no longer to be seen and the advertising was limited to an A4 sized sheet in the hotel lift/elevator and at the reception desk. These were not good places to be seen easily especially as our room was on the bottom floor and we had no need to use the lift. On our second Friday night we saw a different board listing the prices and food choice for the barbecue positioned facing inwards to the restaurant at its entrance steps. We had planned to enjoy the barbecue again but the band this time was a rock style one. The amplification was so loud it was hurtful and it was almost impossible to order the components that we wanted from the barbecue. Also the order process was disorganised so we left and ate dinner elsewhere.
On our third Friday night there was little change to the second and we decided not to have the barbecue again due to the unbearably loud music.
Of course the restaurant is in transition with the new management and I hope it will become much better than it is now. 14 February 2012.
